What to Expect From a Facial Thread Lift
There are a great many medical procedures that can have you looking and feeling younger, taking years off of your appearance, and even your mindset! The facial thread lift procedure, which is gaining more and more popularity, is one of those procedures that can work wonders on both your overall appearance and your attitude.
What is a Facial Thread Lift?
A facial thread lift is an outpatient procedure performed by a medical professional and can help bring an air of youth back into your life. It’s a procedure that is often referred to as a minimally invasive facelift. It is a wonderful procedure that is ideal for those who are looking for facelift level results without having to undergo a surgical procedure to get those results.
How is a Facial Thread Lift Performed?
A facial thread lift is performed by the physician inserting a thread – a medical-grade thread, to be exact – into your face, and then “lifting” the thread to tighten it, which in turn pulls the skin up, giving it a tighter, more youthful appearance.
This can sound pretty daunting, so you are probably wondering: what should I expect from a facial thread lift?
What Can a Facial Thread Lift Do For Me?
A facial thread lift, which can be performed on areas such as the neck, as well, can work wonders on fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin, giving you a younger-looking appearance. Since the procedure is minimally invasive and non-surgical, it will not require inpatient hospital stays or lengthy recovery times, which can make a traditional facelift surgery unappealing for some.
What Should I Expect During a Facial Thread Lift?
A facial thread lift, which is done using polydioxanone sutures, as they are absorbed by the body and do not require removal, is a simple procedure that will give you lasting results. Before beginning, you will be given local anesthesia to numb the area – usually in the form of a numbing cream or injection – and then the doctor performing the procedure will insert a barbed thread into the area to be treated.
After insertion, the doctor will gently pull on the barbed thread, which will catch onto the tissue inside the face or other area, and when pulled, will tighten the area. This will lift and erase the fine lines and wrinkles, as well as tighten crepey skin. Because the sutures are dissolvable and absorbed by the body, there is no need to worry about them being removed.
Since a facial thread lift is less complicated, less invasive, and quicker in terms of recovery time, this procedure is well known for being a “lunchtime procedure.” The downtime is minimal, recovery is generally easy, and the risk of side effects or complications is lower than a traditional facelift procedure.
