WHAT IS IT?
A thread lift procedure is a shorter procedure type that focuses on targeting the signs of aging on the lower face and involves subcutaneous placement of PDO threads which are pulled to achieve the desired skin lift effect. Although it can address eyebrow sagging and cheek sagging, thread lift often focuses its attention on midface, jowl, and neck-lifting.
WHO NEED IT?
- Flabby skin.
- Wrinkles in the eye area.
- Nasolabial folds, “puppet” wrinkles.
- Ptosis of the cheek-malar area.
- Asymmetry of the face.
- Signs of aging.
- Double chin.
- Laxity of the hands (triceps zone), signs of aging on the hands,abdomen,knees and hips.
HOW IT’S DONE?
The procedure for thread lift may be slightly different depending on the area you’re targeting as well as your provider’s preferences. The basic technique is usually the same.
You’ll be asked to recline in the room where your procedure is being performed. Alcohol, as well as topical anesthetic, will be applied to your skin as it’s prepped for surgery.
A thin needle or cannula will be used to insert the threads underneath your skin. Inserting the threads can take 30 to 45 minutes.
After the threads are inserted, the method of insertion will be removed. You may feel light pressure or tightening under your skin.
Within a few minutes of the needles being taken out, your procedure will be complete and you’ll be free to go home.
