The effects of gravity on our bodies are an unavoidable fact of life. It is most poignantly reflected on our faces as we grow older. The supporting tissue in the face weakens and begins to sag over time. The lower face and the neck area, in particular, are impacted by aging and gravity.
One way to deal with this issue is the traditional facelift surgery that takes care of rejuvenating your face and neck. However, thread lift is a less invasive option available to patients.
A thread lift is a non-surgical facelift, a minimally invasive procedure for the face, neck, or jowls using new technological advances to tighten up loose skin. It rejuvenates the internal tissues of the skin and gets rid of flabbiness. The threads are not visible and enhance your appearance. By forming support tissue in an organic way, the threads tighten the skin.
A thread face lift can lift, contour and suspend the sagging tissue of your face and neck for people who need only moderate work. This thread lift face and neck has become one of the most significant advances in facial rejuvenation.
A candidate is someone who is in good mental and physical health, a non-smoker, and has a mild to moderate skin laxity. Anyone with more severe laxity needs a surgical procedure.
Each patient is unique and a thread lift is tailored to each individual depending on age, degree of flaccidity and facial structure. It can get rid of the self-conscious double chin.
Young patients could be a good candidate if they are looking to improve the lower part of their face. For women between the ages of 25 and 45, a thread lift is effective in eliminating wrinkles due to early signs of aging. Starting in their 50’s, women can benefit from a thread lift to reduce wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
A thread face lift can treat the outer brow, cheeks (including sagging in the main cheek), naso-labial or nose to mouth, lower eye areas, jawline, and neck. Many of these areas can be performed at the same time.
This non-surgical facelift is suitable for the sagging of your cheeks, wrinkling in the forehead, and the dreaded doubling of the chin. Also, anyone with an undefined mandibular region or deep nasolabial lines is a candidate for a thread face lift.
Using polypropylene material, the thread is attached to a thin needle and inserted below the skin surface through fatty tissue. The threads have small hooks that pass under the skin through the use of a needle. The hooks grab hold of the skin and pull to re-suspend the skin in a more youthful position.
The newest threads are dissolvable, which lowers the risk of infection. The bacteria cannot hide without a permanent foreign material to latch on and hide from the body’s immune system.
The thread face lift does not involve incisions making it an easier process for patients. Our thread lift procedure on average takes about 1 hour to perform. It has been referred to as a “lunch-hour facelift” for its quick procedure.
Following the procedure, there can be swelling and bruising for a few days and some redness at the insertion points. Most patients return to work the next day or a few days later.
The thread lift can last up to six months and usually does not leave any scars. Your facial movement may be limited for a couple of weeks, especially if you laugh too much!
There are many benefits to a thread face lift:
The thread lift does not have the same dramatic effect and longevity as that of a traditional facelift, which can redefine the jawline or aging neck. But it is a viable option for patients in search of an easy and less expensive non-surgical facelift and facial rejuvenation. The price of a thread lift depends on how many areas will be treated and the number of threads required for the procedure. The average cost begins around $1,500 and up to $5,000. Derma fillers can help once the skin has healed; add an additional $250 or more.
Compare this cost-effective option to a traditional facelift that can cost up to $15,000. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a facelift in 2017 was $7,448. Facelift costs greatly vary depending on the plastic surgeon’s experience and the location of his office and exactly what is being done. And there’s also the cost of anesthesia and other related expenses.
