A thread face-lift is a safe and convenient cosmetic technique designed to improve minor facial sags and other early signs of aging. As the name implies, a thread face-lift involves the placement of tiny threads into the face to lift the sagging skin.
A thread face-lift can smooth your skin for a more youthful appearance in several areas of the mid and lower face, such as:
Dr. Metelitsin uses a needle to make small incisions in the chosen area and to insert the threads. She attaches the threads to the skin and pulls them back to lift up your face. Tiny cones on the threads cause inflammation in the targeted areas; this inflammation stimulates collagen production, and collagen continues to grow around the threads.
Dr. Metelitsin usually administers local anesthesia before the procedure, although sometimes this isn’t necessary. The face-lift can take as little as 30 minutes or as long as two hours, depending on the number of threads inserted.
Because the threads have lifted the skin, you’ll see the effects almost immediately. Because the threads are hidden in the skin, any scarring is invisible, and you’ll only need a day or two of downtime.
Since your skin is now producing new cells on its own, you will see continued results over time. A thread face-lift can last anywhere from 18 months to several years; as the results begin to fade, you can repeat the procedure to maintain your new look.
While you might need more radical surgery for excessive aging, a thread face-lift is perfect for addressing minimal signs of aging, and it has several advantages, including a much more reasonable cost. When compared to traditional surgery, a thread face-lift involves:
As an added perk, you can remain conscious during the procedure to monitor your new appearance. You may also combine a thread lift with other treatments for maximum results.
There’s no need to wait until your sagging skin requires major surgery. Call Marina Medispa to schedule a consultation, or book an appointment online today.
