Thread Lift Overview
A thread lift is a facial rejuvenation procedure that uses threads to go beneath the surface of your skin which lifts the tissues. The threads have either tiny barbs or cones to grip the skin, which gives your face a lifted and toned appearance, which is particularly noticeable around the jowls and lower part of the face. As the threads are absorbed, this triggers a boost in your collagen production to plump up your skin and give it firmness.
Average Cost of a Thread Lift
The final cost depends on a variety of factors. According to RealSelf.com, the price range can go between $50 and $5900, but the average cost is $2,075.
Factors that Influence Final Cost
The main factors that influence the cost include the type of threads used in the procedure, the number of threads placed, as well as the size of the area treated, the provider’s level of experience, and who performs the thread lift. Another factor that can influence final costs is the cost of living and services in your area.
Benefits of Thread Lifts
Thread lifts are an affordable and less invasive treatment compared to a facelift. As a result, it is a very popular procedure. It is a very quick process, and a typical thread lift treatment can take around 45 minutes to an hour.
The procedure has been called a “lunchtime lift” because of its speed, and minimal downtime, especially when compared to time-intensive treatments such as a facelift.
Because the threads are made from long chains of a sugar called polysaccharide, these threads dissolve.
In comparison to permanent fibers that were used many years ago, the dissolvable threads provide less risk, greatly reducing any likelihood of complications such as attracting bacteria.
