Do fine lines, wrinkles, facial folds, and drooping cheeks sound familiar? For a long time, facial cosmetics treatments like botox, fillers, or more extreme plastic surgery were the only way to do something about aging skin. But, Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa knows not everyone desires or can have surgery.
There’s a new type of cosmetic procedure that essentially fills the gap between noninvasive facial injections and highly invasive cosmetic surgery – the thread lift.
What Is A Thread Lift?
Thread lifts are a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery. Thread lifts use temporary, medical-grade stitches (thread) to tighten the skin. The sutures are gripped to your underlying tissue and muscles as the thread is tugged tight. The dissolvable thread is “pulled” to create a tightening effect in the treatment area, leaving the skin in an elevated position.
Thread lifts are designed to reposition volume in the face or breast with a goal of natural-looking results. Hearing thread lifts literally thread stitches through the skin, you might think the procedure is incredibly uncomfortable. However, most patients undergo a thread lift procedure using local anesthesia, meaning the treatment area is completely numbed to prevent pain.
What Is A Thread Lift Good For?
Most people target facial areas that are the most likely to age or “sag” over time. Common locations for a thread lift include:
- Brow Line
- Eye Area
- Jowls & Jawline
The Top Benefits Of A Thread Lift
- Immediate Results – Results are almost instant after the procedure. Immediately after treatment, you’ll have tighter skin and a more youthful appearance.
- Fast Recovery – A thread lift is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that you can do on your lunch break. No downtime is required.
- Achieve Tighter, More Youthful Skin -Thread lifts help stimulate collagen production by provoking the body’s healing response. As a result, most patients notice an improvement in their skin’s tone and firmness after a thread lift.
- Long-Lasting Results – Thread lifts create a more subtle and natural-looking result and last as long as a year.
Why Clients Are Loving Thread Lifts
For many patients, going under the knife isn’t an option. Thread lifts can help achieve the look of younger, tighter, and healthy-looking skin without risky surgery, long recovery times, and the painful healing process.
Thread lifts are low-risk because of how noninvasive they are. The risks of scarring, bruising, bleeding, and complications after a thread lift are low. Patients who do experience any discomfort following the procedure report the side effects are short-lived. Additionally, because thread lifts are so low-risk, many patients combine them with other innovative nonsurgical procedures.
Thread lifts are earning a well-deserved reputation as the ideal alternative to heavily invasive surgery.
