With our busy lives, it is increasingly difficult to stop our daily activities for a long period of time. With that in mind, thread facelift is an increasingly sought after procedure because it was designed to be convenient and less invasive.
As opposed to the previous thread, the thread now used is made of an absorbable and collagen-stimulating material called poly-lactic acid. A thread facelift treatment ranges from reducing sagging around the eyebrows, cheeks, and jawline, to treating the neck and a droopy belly button.
Am I a candidate for this procedure?
There isn’t an ideal age for a thread facelift. Concerns about sagging in different areas of the body depends heavily on genetic factors and lifestyle choices. Factors such as smoking and sun exposure can be harmful and increase the search for this procedure.
The thread facelift is done at the doctor’s office under local anesthetic. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and immediate results are observed.
Thread facelift recovery
After performing the thread facelift, it is important not to perform any physical activity or lower your head. Avoid any source of heat and saunas, facial massages, or any dental work. It is recommended to ice the area.
If any ecchymosis is present, the patient should avoid sun exposure until its disappearance.
How long will my results last?
It is not possible to predict the durability of a thread facelift result. The result will depend on several individual factors, which varies from patient to patient. For example: genetic factors, lifestyle, and skin care. The thread is absorbed by the body over a span of 2 years. During this time, the results attenuate, but there is an ongoing stimulus of collagen formation.
The combination of dermatological procedures and proper skin care is important to maintain post-surgery results.
