There are few treatments as revolutionary and effective as a thread lift. A thread lift will treat sagging jowls, loose skin at the neckline, volume loss in the cheeks, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And it is effective and it’s a non-surgical treatment with limited downtime. And the results are expected to last for twelve months or longer. When you compare the results of the thread lift procedure to the much more invasive facelift, which does have results that are longer lasting but also require substantial downtime, and there are considerable risks posed to the facelift patient’s health such as nerve damage and permanent change of look, the impressive results of the thread lift seem not only more practical but also much safer.
The threads are anchored into the facial tissue, and function as a scaffold, lifting and smoothing and contouring the skin. The threads that are anchored into the facial tissues also trigger the body’s response to heal wounds, and the result of this response is that the body will produce new bundles of collagen around the thread; the result is a subtle and effective lift.
Results of the thread lift are apparent immediately, but changes become more pronounced over time and achieve optimal result within 4 to 6 months; it takes time for the body to build collagen bundles around the threads. These optimal results will continue to be apparent for anywhere between 18 months to a few years, and can be managed over that time to maintain the result.
There is some downtime after a procedure, although the most common side effect is swelling and bruising at the treatment site. But most side-effects should only last for 1 to 2 days.
