What Is A Thread Lift?
At VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics, a thread lift is a noninvasive treatment that elevates and firms hanging skin. A facial thread lift is often an optimal choice for patients who are uninclined to get a surgical facelift; however, they still would like to decrease indications of getting older, including fine lines, creases, and hanging skin. Our office uses polydioxanone threads (also known as PDO collagen threads), which are strong, synthetic monofilament threads or medical-grade sutures woven into the epidermis to encourage collagen formation and raise saggy skin and laugh lines. Generally dubbed a "lunchtime lift," a PDO thread lift doesn't require major healing time. Our practice also features Meshfill, a two-in-one thread and filler combination that stimulates collagen in the skin. All threads are dissolvable or absorbable over time. Schedule a consultation at our office in Wellesley, MA to decide if a thread lift is a good cosmetic solution for your objectives.
What are the Benefits of a Thread Lift?
A thread lift provides many advantages for patients showing mild to moderate signs of aging. It has the ability to create a natural-looking lift in different areas. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires little downtime and no disruption of your daily activities. Thread lifts are also customizable to fit each patient’s individual needs and can be used in conjunction with other treatments if needed. Depending on your skin’s elasticity and age, the effects are considered long-lasting. Additionally, thread lifts are not only great for lifting and tightening skin but also stimulating collagen production, which further enhances your results.
Am I A Good Candidate For A Thread Lift?
The best candidates for a thread lift are usually those between ages 35 to 65 who want to:
- Obtain smoother skin without invasive procedures.
- Stimulate collagen production in the skin.
- Reduce mild or moderate sagging skin on the neck and/or face.
- Decrease apparent signs of aging, including creases around the mouth nasal area, sagging jowls, loose skin, and lip lines.
- Obtain longer-lasting improvements than with cosmetic injectables.
At an initial appointment in Wellesley, MA, our team will work with you to decide if a thread lift procedure might be a good choice for you.
How Is A PDO Thread Lift Performed?
A thread lift is a brief procedure that generally takes an hour or so to perform. Before the thread lift treatment, a member of our team will consult with you about what sort of threads will be utilized, how many will be administered, and where they will be placed to establish your optimal improvements. Normally, a local anesthetic agent is employed to numb the treatment locations and help the patient to be comfortable. We will organize the threads into designated areas of the face by implementing a delicate needle. The threads are gently tightened to encourage a subtle lift to the skin and a younger-appearing result. No cuts or incisions are used throughout this treatment.
A Meshfill thread lift will define the jaw, diminish sagging jowls, and reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. This type of threading stimulates collagen in the skin for a volumizing and rejuvenating effect.
What Should I Expect Following a Thread Lift?
Once you have a PDO thread lift, it's typical to see some minor inflammation and sensitivity. It's a good idea to abstain from strenuous exertion, and you should sleep with your head lifted over the next three days. After about a week or so, you should begin to see your refreshed results. The PDO sutures support elastin and collagen growth for ongoing enhancements during the next 12 – 18 months. Individuals usually only require one PDO thread lift procedure for noticeable outcomes but may want to schedule touch-up appointments within the next couple of years to preserve their rejuvenated results.
