Consider a Thread Lift As an Alternative to a Surgical Facelift
If you are interested in getting rid of wrinkles, you may be considering having a surgical facelift performed. Before you have this surgery done, it may be wise to see if you are a good candidate for a thread lift.
During a facelift with thread, dissolvable threads are gently injected under the skin. In most cases, they are used in the mid-face area. It is also possible to have this treatment performed on the neck. Because threads are placed under the skin, you receive the benefit of enjoying instantly tighter and lifted skin.
While you likely want the benefits that come from an instant lift, you will be happy to know that more collagen is being produced under your skin during the weeks and months that follow the treatment. This means that your skin will naturally be plumper and tighter during the first year after treatment. At about six months from the time the threads are injected, they will start to dissolve. However, the extra collagen that was produced will be left as a natural framework under your skin, reducing wrinkles and allowing you to have more youthful-looking skin.
A facelift with thread is referred to as a lunchtime treatment. First, it is a quick treatment. It can be scheduled during your lunch break. Second, there’s no downtime. As soon as the threads have been inserted under the skin, you can get right back to work. You are unlikely to have any noticeable signs that you underwent the treatment.
