Comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. Inserting the threads under the skin leads to a discreet and immediate lifting effect. In addition, a gradual and natural regenerating effect starts due to the stimulation of the natural production of collagen, thus restoring shapeliness to the face.
‘Face is an index of age’ and for women it is very concerning because ageing disfigure their charm, beauty and personality. Sagging of skin is a most common effect of ageing and women who wish to look younger than their age have various treatment options. Thread lift is one such aesthetic treatment that helps women look younger, fresh and appealing. A thread lift is a minimally invasive and safe procedure that confers permanent results for sagging skin. Aesthetician uses clear polypropylene threads with tiny barbs on it to pull the sagging facial skin on the cheeks, eye-brows and on the neck giving a smooth, fresh, rejuvenated and younger look.
Thread lift procedure is advantageous over surgical face lift in various factors:
It is ideal for both men and women in the age group of 35 and 60 years old. It can also be combined with other procedures such as wrinkle treatment, dermal fillers, therm-age and liposuction of the neck for much better results. The results are permanent but new threads need to be added as one ages and skin sags further.
The procedure lasts for 30 to 60 minutes and is done as out-patient procedure so patients can go home soon after the procedure. However duration of treatment varies with number of threads used to get the desired improvement. Significant improvement is seen with single session of treatment.
Usually four to 16 threads are applied in a treatment, requiring a local anaesthetic, that can last from 20 minutes to an hour. Expect mild to moderate swelling, but recovery time is on average one to two days.
