If you are looking for an effective nonsurgical mini facelift, the thread lift technology can contour and lift sagging skin. Instead of removing excess skin by a scalpel, a dissolvable thread material is used to stitch portions of the sagging skin. The thread is made up of suture and cone. The suture functions as the frame under the skin surface to lift sagging skin tissue while the cones hold the suture in place.

Although there will always be advantages and disadvantages when getting cosmetic surgery, lift thread has its own benefits
Because it is non-invasive, there are no incision and stitches
Since this doesn’t entail surgical procedure, risk is very low. There is no danger of scarring, severe bruising, and other complications. To avoid adverse effects, a patient still needs to take precautions while healing. In the event of infections or the threads becoming visible, the threads can be removed. It’s important to follow the aftercare form. Things such as rubbing the face or simple application of moisturizer (1 week after the treatment) can pose complications.
If the outcome doesn’t satisfy your needs or something unusual happened during healing, the threads can be easily adjusted or even replaced and removed.
- Fast and minimal recovery
The biggest advantage of thread lift is the reduced time to recover. Downtime from facelift surgery will need you to take time off work for 1 or 2 weeks in order to heal. Aside from being sedated for the procedure, the patient requires round the clock assistance from a caretaker for at least 3 days following the treatment.
Thread lift treatment is easy and not as intensive as the traditional facelift. Most patients go back to work and their day to day activities after the thread lift procedure. While there are a few who take 1-day rest because of the slight soreness, redness, and swelling they may experience. The whole lift procedures do not need general anaesthesia nor strong pain medication.
- Can be done simultaneously with other procedures
Being low risk and having short recovery time, one can undergo other non-surgical procedure at the same time which can complement your thread lifts and furnish a cut above outcome
- Immediate and subtle result
Changes in the face and neck will be subtle since skin will only be lifted by few milimeters giving you appearance a more natural look. It is important to set realistic expectations with any nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Thread lifts produce excellent changes on the sagging skin. Thread lifts last from 1 to 3 years while a facelift surgery can last up to a decade. However, the lifting effect is more subtle and more natural-looking than the traditional facelift.
Because thread lift procedures are easier to perform, they are more affordable than facelift surgeries. Thread lifting works best to tighten the lower part of the face. But thread lifts can also be done anywhere in the face even around the eyes!
