What is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift offers a minimally invasive method of reducing signs of facial aging. Also known as the “lunchtime lift,” an experienced clinician can complete the procedure in an hour or less.
The thread lift helps restore a youthful look by lifting sagging skin around the cheeks and chin while also stimulating your skin’s natural collagen-producing processes.
The procedure involves threading a thin, dissolvable suture under the skin, which pulls the skin taut around your forehead and neck. A thread lift can also benefit the torso area by tightening up sagging skin.
Miniature, painless barbs line the suture and grab ahold underlying tissue, holding the suture in place. These miniature barbs also serve another purpose in that they trigger the skin’s collagen-production activities. These effects further enhance your appearance by giving your skin a fresh and supple appearance.
How Long Do Thread Lift Effects Last?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, on average, a thread lift procedure will last anywhere from one to three years. Keep in mind, though, that the thread lift is a low-risk procedure, so you can easily have new sutures put in once your body absorbs the old ones.
While a thread lift can produce stunning results on its own, Slimming Solutions Med Spa offers a range of cosmetic services that can enhance your appearance all the more, including:
