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.
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.
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
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!
A very fine thread is inserted under the skin through a tiny hole made in the skin. The thread grips to the skin tissue and acts as temporary structures to lift the sagging tissues. The cosmetic practitioner creates a slight backward and forward pulling effect of the thread to reshape and provide an immediate lift.
Don’t worry, the threads are safely reabsorbed by the body over time. In addition, thread lift triggers the healing response of the body and stimulates collagen production. Not only does thread lift gives you an instant facelift but it also combats skin ageing
The thread lift procedure requires a local anaesthetic to the face before the doctor injects the skin. Once the thread has been inserted, a slight pressure will be applied to reshape the skin. The treatment results are long-lasting and can be applied to the face, neck, and even around the eyes.
Appraised as low risk, it is generally safe to have this treatment. However, just like other facial rejuvenation procedures, there may be corresponding side effects, risks, and complications
Side effects may take place after the threads such as temporary redness, soft skin tissue swelling, and bruising.
Despite the advance technology at this age and time, the thread lift is not without its own complications
The thread lift is a revolutionary development for nonsurgical facial treatments. Silhouette Soft and PDO threads are leading-edge techniques that take away years from your skin and appearance. While both threads give the same excellent results, there are few differences between the two.
PDO Threads (NovaThread) are designed for safe reabsorption by the body after 4 to 6 months remaining in place. The improvement in the skin condition using PDO is continuously seen within a year or more.
There are several varieties of the PDO threads.
The thread lift procedure using the PDO thread takes 30 to 45 minutes only. Before the treatment, local anesthesia is applied to numb the areas. A thin cannula is used to insert the thread. Since the treatment is relatively quick and easy, the patient can return to work or go back to the daily activities.
Similar to PDO Threads, the Silhouette Soft Threads are made from biocompatible temporary sutures to lift the face. The results last from 1 to 3 years. However, it is designed differently and particularly aims to lift the skin more than stimulating collagen. This type of thread has tiny cones that are capable to grab the skin tissues and produce a more noticeable lift.
The treatment for having Silhouette Soft Threads takes about 45 minutes or so. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the areas. A specially designed needle is utilized to insert the threads used to minimize discomfort. The patient can then return to the day’s normal activities immediately. Mild swelling is expected a few days after the procedure. This is normal and can be managed with OTC pain relievers.
Demographically speaking, Those who will be most beneficial for threads are men and women over the age of 30 who are seeking to battle the signs of ageing
Individual with very thin skin due to genetics, advancing age, or too much sun exposure is not be a good candidate of thread lift. Other facial rejuvenation treatment will be recommended for them.
The rates of thread lift procedures per region differs but roughly, threading lift Melbourne cost starts at $695. Evaluation is done to assess the current state of your skin because total cost is not per thread but based from the complexity of the thread lift procedure. You also have to take into consideration the possibility of a repeat lift thread after few month or top-up treatment to get optimal results
In an average, threads treatment can last up to 24 months. Depending on the threads used, thread lift may last up to a year or so. It is also necessary to know how to maintain it so that the effect will remain longer. You have to take note that since we cannot stop the natural process of ageing, further skin sagging will continue in different areas. One benefit of thread lift is you can concurrently go through other treatment for a more favourable effect
Pain actually depends on the level of tolerance of the patient. Thread lift treatment is one of the most minimally invasive procedure but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t feel pain. In general, there will be slight discomfort. Local anaesthesia will be injected prior to the treatment to lessen, if not totally get rid of, the sensation.
Manageable soreness and swelling may also be expected after the thread lift.
Being minimally invasive, thread lift treatment has very less recovery time. Downtime is just up to 3 days and you can actually go back to your daily routine right after thread lift is done unless it requires you to participate in a heavy and strenuous activities.
While a facelift can produce some quite extreme results at times, not everyone requires these more dramatic changes to have a really dramatic effect on their look. For many people, the lift achieved with a thread lift can make a significant improvement to the look of their skin and face, assisting to improve or restore a more youthful aesthetic. Even though facelift results are typically permanent, thread lift procedures don’t lack much here either with a long-lasting period of 1-3 years. If you take advantage of other non-surgical face rejuvenation tools such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections as well, you can combine them into a well-rounded and broad rejuvenation plan, not to say they don’t produce great results on their own though. The recovery from a thread lift is considered to pale in comparison to what is typical of a facelift. At the same time, these will vary depending on the specifics of what you have done. However, even a mild facelift will generally be more intensive to recover from that a thread lift.
After you have had a thread lift procedure completed, there are some things that can be beneficial to avoid to avoid detrimental effects to your thread lift results or recovery from your procedure. Avoid touching or rubbing the treated areas for at least 12 hours after your procedure, and beyond that be gentle until your threads have settled. Around three weeks of some care will usually be all that is required, just simple things like avoiding rough washing or wide-open mouth movements can be helpful to your thread lift recovery. Full aftercare instructions after your thread lifts will be provided by your cosmetic doctor, ensure you are sure you understand these and ask any questions you may have. While recovery from a thread lift is quite minimal, taking care while your threads settle can help you maintain optimal results, which is always a great thing and will have you enjoying a reduction in sagging skin and increased youthfulness sooner than you expect.
While thread lifts are considered to be reasonably low-risk treatment options, they aren’t risk-free. Any treatment comes with some degree of risk of potential side effects, and thread lifts are no different in this regard. After having threads placed, it is common to experience some degree of bruising, localised pain, swelling, or bleeding. There’s a smaller chance of other side effects from the treatment such as an allergic reaction to the threads used, dimpling of the skin, migration of the treads under your skin, pain under the skin, or infection. For a full list of the risks involved and to discuss potential side effects that you may be more prone to due to medical conditions or similar, discuss this with your cosmetic doctor so you fully understand the risks involved and can make an informed decision on whether a threads treatment is right for you and your skin. Thanks to local anaesthetic typically being used there are some benefits here over surgical lift alternatives as these usually are performed with general instead of local anaesthetic which does come with a higher risk profile.
