Trying outrun the natural aging process is like trying to drive your car without fuel. Unfortunately, it’s simply not possible. With that said, just because we can’t escape getting older, it doesn’t mean we need to accept it. Long ago, the only option people had was to undergo a traditional facelift if they wanted to erase their wrinkles and restore lost volume. Thankfully, the newest technological advances in the world of cosmetic surgery has made it possible to turn back the hands of time in under one hour. The newest anti-aging treatment is the Thread Lift, and it’s taking the beauty industry by storm.
What is a Thread Lift?
It’s an innovative new cosmetic procedure that redefines the face, reduces wrinkles and restores lost volume. Also known as the lunch hour lift, it’s performed in the doctor’s office with virtually no downtime.
How Does it work?
The treads are made of polydioxanone (POD) material that is very similar to surgical sutures. When inserted under the skin, these threads function as “scaffold” which then helps to support the skin against gravity. The threads also shape and support any sagging structures including the mid face, jowls, neck and forehead. They can even be used to augment the bridge of the nose.
How is it performed?
A Thread face lift involves the insertion of very fine threads in targeted areas of treatment under topical anesthesia. Once the threads are inserted and positioned, they are pulled to desired tightness for optimal lifting.
The procedure is recommended for both men and women over the age of 30 who want to combat the first signs of aging, but aren’t ready to undergo invasive surgery.
How long will the results last?
Depending on which type of thread is used for the lift, results can last up to 18 months. Within that time, these special threads help to stimulate the body’s own collagen production.
