Thread Lifting: A New Way to Anti-Age
Updated: Oct 23
The signs of aging sneak up on us all. Whether it’s the result of days when we baked in the sun, the alarmingly strong pull of gravity, or our engrained genetics, time takes a toll—especially on our skin. Thankfully, the medical aesthetics industry has spent its entire existence researching and creating innovative solutions to stop aging right in its tracks. One treatment in particular, thread lifting, also called facial threading, is the new and improved anti-aging remedy we’ve all been waiting for. Here is everything you need to know about thread lifting and the one-of-a-kind technology that makes it so unique.
What is thread lifting?
Thread lifting is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment during which small, medical-grade threads are strategically implanted, pulled, and positioned under the skin. These top-of-the-line surgical threads dissolve over time and are designed to catch and hold the tissue that lies beneath, resulting in a beautiful lifting and tightening effect.
Is thread lifting painful?
Before a thread lifting treatment, a local anesthetic is administered to fully numb the desired area. By doing so, patients experience little to no pain during the duration of the procedure. The best part of thread lifting is that it can be done in 45 minutes or less, which originally inspired the procedure’s nickname: “the lunchtime lift.”
How long do the results of thread lifting last?
Upon looking in the mirror, you’ll find the effects of a thread lifting treatment are immediate, with results lasting up to 2 years. Like magic, the presence of the surgical threads used during this treatment stimulates your skin to gradually increase collagen production over time. As the threads continue to settle and dissolve, this extra collagen paves the way to softer, smoother, more supple skin.
What is the difference between a thread lift and a face lift?
A traditional face lift is a surgical procedure during which general anesthesia is administered, incisions are made, and downtime is fairly substantial. Within the medical aesthetics industry, thread lifting is a far less invasive and less expensive option that gives an incredibly similar effect. If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment that has minimal downtime, long-lasting results, and won’t break the bank, thread lifting is the way to go.
Is thread lifting the right treatment for you?
The beauty of thread lifting is that just about anyone can benefit from having it done. Thread lifting was once primarily aimed toward patients with mature, severely aged skin. These days, the treatment is widely accepted and performed on patients of various ages to help resolve a wide array of concerns. Thread lifting can provide amazing effects including but not limited to:
· Face and body contouring
· Improved skin laxity
· Cheek enhancement
· Jaw tightening
· Brow lifting
· Wrinkle reduction
· Skin rejuvenation
· Muscle relaxation
· Tissue healing
