Thread Lift

A Thread Lift Is A Type Of Procedure Wherein Temporary Sutures Are Used To Produce A Subtle But Visible “Lift” In The Skin. Thread Lifts Offer Patients An Option For Restoring And Rejuvenating Skin, With A Technique That Is Less Invasive Than A Facelift, But More Powerful Than Topical Treatments.  Thread Lifts Deliver Natural Results, With Minimal Downtime.  

Thread Lift Procedure

The Relatively Quick Procedure Is Performed In Only One Hour. The Surgeon First Inserts The Threads Through A Micro-Incision Point Along The Cheek Or Chin Region.   The Surgeon Inserts The Needle The Pulls The Absorbable Threads Into Position. The Subtle Tension And Adjustment Of The Skin Over The Thread Cones Lifts And Defines The Lower Cheeks And Jowls.

The Absorbable Sutures Have Hand-Tied Knots And Cones, Which Serve As Anchors For Which Newly Formed Collagen Can Grow. They Have Small Cones Which Anchor Into Deep Tissues, Creating An Appropriate Tension To Lift Sagging Tissue. The Sutures Are Made Of Poly -L-Lactic Acid, Which Is A Biocompatible Material Used In Cardiovascular And Eye Surgeries For Many Years. This Innovative Material Has Been Shown To Deliver Consistent Results With Minimal Allergic Reactions.

When The Surgeon Pulls The Threads, He Is Able To Create A Naturally Elevated And Smoother Facial Anatomy. Additionally, The Sutures Are Placed In A Manner That Leaves The Patient With Virtually No Visible Scarring.

Benefits of Thread Lift?

It has two main effects- an instant supporting action, and a collagen stimulating action. The procedure creates a youthful profile, defining and lifting the facial structure of the lower face and leaving the patient feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

Patients who are seeking for facelift results, but are not ready to undergo a surgery, are excellent candidates for the non-surgical Silhouette thread lift procedure. This procedure focuses on specific trouble spots, such as…

    • Sagging eyebrows
    • Asymmetric brows
    • Sagging cheeks and jowls  – the most common area
    • Drooping skin on the mid and lower face

 What To Expect?

Thread Lift Is Performed With Local Anesthesia To Ensure Patient Comfort. Because The Procedure Is Performed With Local Anesthesia, Instead Of General Anesthesia, The Patient Has A Quicker And Smoother Recovery. The Procedure Takes Only Approximately One Hour To Complete And Does Not Require An Overnight Stay. Some Patients May Experience Minor Pain, Swelling And Bruising To The Surgical Sites. This Can Be Controlled With Pain Medication And Rest.

Thread Lift Allows For A Quick Recovery, As Patients Are Able To Return To Their Normal Activities Within Two Days Of The Procedure. Additionally, After Two Weeks, The Face Will Return To A Softened And Natural Appearance. The Only Difference Is That The Softened And Natural Appearance Has Better Facial Contours, Better Tone And A More Youthful Profile. The Results Of Thread Lift Like Silhouette/MINT Thread Lift Last From Up To 18months To Two Years. So, It Is A Great Option For Those With Early Aging Signs But Are Not Ready For Traditional Facelift Surgery.




Getting The Most Out Of Your Thread Lift

Because Thread Lifts Are So Low-Risk And Boast Such A Short Recovery Time, It’s Possible To Combine Them With Other Nonsurgical Procedures In Order To Create More Comprehensive, Noticeable Results. Once Your Skin Has Healed Around The Threads Inserted During An “InstaLift,” We Recommend Pairing Your Thread Lift With A Treatment Like Ultherapy

Ultherapy Uses Gentle Pulses Of Ultrasound Energy To Heat The Connective Tissues Beneath The Skin, Thereby Stimulating Collagen Production. Ultherapy, Which Is Often Referred To As Being A “Nonsurgical Facelift,” Is Safe Enough To Be Applied To Virtually Any Area Of The Face And Neck. By Combining This Procedure With A Thread Lift, You Can Maximize The Overall Amount Of Skin Firming You Receive And Create More Even Lifting By Treating The Neck As Well As The Face.

While Thread Lifts Can Tighten The Skin Effectively, They Aren’t Designed To Address Blemishes, On The Skin’s Surface. As Such, Banishing The Superficial Signs Of Aging—Like Age Spots, Areas Of Uneven Pigmentation And Fine Lines—Will Require A Technique Known As “Skin Resurfacing.” During Skin Resurfacing, The Top Layer Of The Dermis Is Removed, A New  Youthful-Looking Layer Of Skin Then Grows In Its Place.

By Combining A Number Of Different Nonsurgical Anti-Aging Treatments, Patients Can Achieve A Profoundly Positive Change In Their Appearance – Without Enduring The Extended Recovery Time Associated With Surgery.

There are a few important recovery guidelines that you need to follow after your procedure to keep yourself safe and to maximize the results of the procedure.

  • Do not apply makeup for 12 hours after your procedure excluding the mineral makeup applied at the clinic.
  • For the first 24 hours, you need to avoid undergoing strenuous exercise and the consumption of alcohol.
  • For the two weeks following your procedure avoid extended exposure to the sun or UV light and avoid extended exposure to heat or freezing temperatures and this will affect your recovery and the results of the procedure.
  • we recommend that you avoid any dental work at least one week prior to or post dermal filler treatment.
