What is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a simple and dramatically less invasive technique compared to a traditional face lift. A thread lift is safe and effective without the extensive recovery time. Threading provides subtle, natural-looking immediate results by lifting sagging tissues in an upward direction to give patients a more relaxed, fresh appearance, helping to improve the natural contours of your face. Thread lifts can be used to lift sagging cheeks and eyebrows and adjust any asymmetry in your face. They also can be used to stimulate collagen and remove fine wrinkles.
Self-absorbing, tiny sutures are placed beneath the skin and can be used to stimulate collagen growth in specific areas such as cheeks, lips, and wrinkles, or can be placed to specifically draw back skin folds or wrinkles to provide lift (brow lift, cheek lift, neck lift, contoured jaw lines). These tiny threads can even be used to provide lifts to the belly, knees, buttocks, arm flaps, or breast.
Considering a Thread Lift?
The procedure is typically completed with an hour, and it is performed under local anesthesia and light breathable analgesia called the Pro-Nox system. This uses a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen, and it may be used for patient comfort as needed.
How Long Will My Result Last?
Depending on the age of the patient at the time of the procedure, the degree of sagging, and the number of threads used, results typically last 18 months if no major changes in weight occurs. Pricing starts at $300. Call us to get more information.
