Most popular treatment areas are the brows, cheeks (midface), jowls, and the upper neck. However, Thread Lift can be performed virtually anywhere on the body, such as to lift loose skin on the upper arms, stomach, thighs and around the knees. (see the pic below directly.)
The area to be treated will be numb with local and local anesthesia.
Then mark the area to be treated.
A small hollow needle is then used to insert the thread at a precise location under the skin to lift and support the sagging element without removing any skin. The inserted wire is then able to grab the sagging skin and soft tissue to reposition the skin. This does not require an incision or incision. This is done purely by injection.
With the fixed lifting effect, the hollow needles are removed without leaving any scars.
Depending on the desired effect of the lift, a few to several sutures will be used.
The PDO suture remains under the skin. Different sutures and lengths will be used depending on the area you need to lift.
Like any procedure using a needle, there is a chance of bruising and swelling. However, in most people, the bruising and swelling is minimal and resolve in less than a week. There is some post-op discomfort which usually resolves quickly in most patients. If the sutures, for some reason, become visible underneath the skin or migrate, it can be easily removed if necessary and new threads can be placed.
For the right candidate, the Thread Lift can provide a pleasing, natural rejuvenation of the face with the benefit of no general anesthesia, rapid recovery and very minimal cost compared to a facelift or a necklift. Thread Lift may be combined with other, more minor surgical procedures, such as Botox, Injectable Fillers, Ultherapy, microneedling or skin resurfacing lasers.
