Thread Lift treatment is a cosmetic procedure involving Absorbable threads to lift and tighten loose skin on the face, neck, and body. The threads are inserted into the skin through small incisions or punctures, and then the skin is lifted and tightened over the threads. The threads are typically made of biocompatible materials, such as polylactic acid, polypropylene, or absorbable sutures.
The procedure is designed to provide a non-invasive alternative to traditional facelift surgery and is considered less invasive and less expensive. The threads are meant to dissolve over time while the skin remains lifted and tightened. The treatment results typically last between 6-12 months, after which the procedure may be repeated.
Thread Lift procedure is ideal for people in their late 30s to late 50s who have signs of aging, such as loose, hanging, or lax skin.
Though many people require facelift surgery, thread lift is a non-surgical option for those who do not want to undergo a more invasive procedure or are advised against elective surgery.
Your dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon will clinically evaluate your skin laxity and take a thorough medical history to determine the best possible treatment option. The thread lift treatment can be used on a variety of body parts, including:
It is a cosmetic procedure involving threads to tighten and lift sagging skin on the face, neck, or body.
The Threads are inserted into the skin through small incisions or punctures and then used to lift and tighten the skin.
The Threads are typically made of biocompatible materials, such as polydioxanone (PDO), polylactic acid (PLA), or polycaprolactone (PCA). They are designed to dissolve over time while the skin remains lifted and tightened.
The procedure is designed to provide a non-invasive alternative to traditional facelift surgery and is considered less invasive and less expensive.
The treatment results typically last between 6-12 months, after which the procedure may be repeated.
Thread Lifts provide a lifting effect, but it is essential to have realistic expectations and understand that it may not offer the same degree of improvement as a surgical facelift. The expectations of thread lift treatment typically include a temporary improvement in the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, or fine lines. The results may last from several months to a year or more, depending on the type of thread used and the individual's body's response. The specific outcomes and duration of the treatment can differ depending on various factors, such as the number of threads used, the area treated, and the individual's overall health and lifestyle habits. It is important to consult a qualified and experienced Doctor to determine the appropriate treatment plan and expected outcomes.
1- PDO threads are made of the synthetic material polydioxanone. Commonly used in medical sutures. They provide skin tightening and lift by encouraging collagen production, and the results typically last between 6-12 months.
2- PLA threads are made of polylactic acid, a biodegradable polymer gradually absorbed by the body. They work by providing immediate skin tightening and lift, and the results typically last between 6-12 months.
3 -PCA threads are made of polycaprolactone, a biodegradable material that is gradually absorbed by the body. They are designed to provide skin tightening and lift; the results typically last between 6-12 months.
All three types of threads provide similar benefits, but the choice of thread will depend on the specific needs and goals of the patient, as well as the recommendation of the Doctor.
