Have you felt your facial structure changing with age? With time the many parts of the face are affecting by factors such as the condition of the skin, cartilage loss, elasticity and fat. As a result people feel that certain parts of the face such as mid-face, neck and jowls look saggy and droopy.
Thread Lift v Face Lift Surgery
You’ve probably tried many facial treatments, but haven’t got the desired results or that tighter or lifted look around the face. For many a sagging or dropping face can be a concern and affect self esteem and confidence. Often people resort to researching into to face lift surgery to help resolve their concerns.
Whilst traditional surgery can provide great results, it can however be expensive, very invasive and require weeks of recovery time. These factors can often be off putting for many people.
At Dr Sobia Medispa, we are a specialist thread lift centre of excellence. A thread lift can is a viable alternative to traditional face lift surgery and could be a suitable treatment for many and can help address a saggy face.
A Thread lift is a revolutionary treatment which involves using bio-absorbable suture threads which are inserted into the skin to obtain a face lifting affect.
How Does a Thread Lift Work?
A thread lift is a procedure that can help sculpt and contour the shape of your face. Using specialist surgical threads, this helps lift and tighten sagging skin. Specialist threads are inserted under the skin which provide structure and support to the skin and are lifted during the procedure.
The threads remain under the skin and overtime absorb into the skin boosting collagen production to maintain the lifting affect. The threads cannot be seen (as they sit under the skin).
There are a number of areas which can be targeted around the face. This includes:
- Under the eyes
- Brow line
- Crows Feet
- Marionette Lines
- Nasolabial Folds
Thread Lift Benefits
Compared to traditional surgery Thread lifts are considered a low-risk procedure with minimal recovery and downtime and help rectify the ageing process for many patients. The results are instant and gradually improve and unfold over the weeks and months giving you tighter and more radiant skin through collagen production. The procedure restores the skins structure and restore the skin’s strength and elasticity also.
How Long Does it Last?
A thread lift typically takes around 45 minutes depending on the area of concern and the number of threads and correction required. There will be some bruising, soreness and redness, but this tends to settle over the a few days. There are some precautions to be aware of, but patients are given aftercare following the procedure.
The results last between 12-18 months at which point you will start noticing that you need to repeat the treatment. We recommend that you contact your practitioner.
