It’s true that there’s a non-surgical treatment for sagging facial skin that is effective at both lifting and tightening the skin. The procedure is called a Thread Lift, and the results are uncannily similar to those from a typical facelift, which does require a much more invasive procedure. And the typical facelift requires considerable down time whereas a Thread Lift procedure at Central Wellness will only require a day or two to recover completely.
What Does It Work?
A Thread Lift procedure uses a type of biodegradable and absorbable suture that is placed strategically to lift and contour the skin around the mid and lower parts of the face. And these sutures are effective at targeting sagging skin in the cheek, jowls, lips, and neck. These are all places on the face where a person might suffer a breakdown in collagen, or experience a loss in volume. The sutures placed to lift the skin are connected to tiny cone-like objects that are placed beneath the skin. The cones help to tighten the sagging skin, but they also encourage collagen stimulation through inflammation.
Even if you are hearing about the Thread Lift procedure for the very first time, know that it has been around for some time. But recently the technologies used have undergone so much advancement that you could almost consider the previous treatment antiquated by comparison. The sutures used in the previous version of treatment were barbed, and they had to be anchored deep into the scalp, temple, or brow. The new sutures, which were approved by the FDA, are an absorbable and biodegradable medical suture that not only make the procedure less invasive, but also make the procedure viable for most all parts of the face. And these modern sutures can be strategically positioned to lift the skin in two different directions, which promotes a more three-dimensional end product.
