As we get older our skin becomes less firm because of the decreasing production of collagen and elastin. This causes fine lines and wrinkles to form where we once had smoother and tighter skin. While we can’t do anything about aging, we can try to fix some of the effects of aging. It is precisely for this reason that thread facelifts are becoming more popular!
What Is a Thread Facelift?
A thread lift uses advanced thread technology to lift and reposition facial skin that has lost its elasticity and is sagging. Also commonly referred to as the “lunchtime lift”, a thread facelift uses a quicker and less invasive method than that of the conventional facelift, while still producing visible results.
Thread lifts typically target areas on the face and neck, such as:
- Sagging eyebrows
- Drooping cheeks
- Under-eye area
What are PDO Threads?
PDO threads (Polydioxanone threads) are one of the most commonly used threads in these types of face lifts. They are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair and made of protein. PDO threads are known to help relax muscles and tendons. They also help the blood flow to the focus area, stimulating new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. All of this works together to give your skin an enhanced and more elastic texture with fewer lines and wrinkles. Needless to say, your skin will be healthier and look better thanks to PDO threads used in thread facelifts!
Thread Facelift vs. Classic Facelift
While both of these types of facelifts offer an end-result of rejuvenated and healthier looking skin, there are important distinctions to note. The biggest difference is that a traditional facelift is a surgical procedure that takes more time and costs more money, yet the results are longer-lasting. Thread facelifts, on the other hand, are a more non-invasive procedure that is also less costly, but the results are more temporary, usually lasting between three to nine months on average. A thread lift also does not take long to do, usually an hour or less, whereas a traditional facelift can take hours and recovery can take up to several weeks.
Thread facelifts are a great option and alternative for a person looking for a more subtle rejuvenation of the skin, in a less invasive way, and at a lower cost.
Benefits of Thread Facelifts
Thread facelifts have grown in popularity as they provide immediate results which may improve over time because of the body’s enhanced production of natural collagen from the thread lifts.
Countless people are choosing Thread facelifts over traditional facelifts because of these obvious benefits:
- Quick procedure typically taking less than an hour
- Instant lifted results of the skin
- Boosts the body’s natural production of collagen
- Minimally invasive when compared to cosmetic surgery
- Requires no general anesthetic
- Minimal recovery time
- More affordable than traditional facelifts
- Relatively painless
