Thread Lift

Thread Lift

A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.

    Most frequent questions and answers
    WHAT IS A THREAD LIFT?

    A thread lift is a popular, minimally invasive procedure for men and women, which is a convenient, non-surgical alternative to a surgical facelift procedure or neck lift, without the significant cost and downtime of surgery. PDO threads are placed under the skin to reposition the skin in a higher or lifted placement to give your face and/or neck a refreshed, rejuvenated look of younger, tighter looking skin.

    One of the major benefits of a thread lift over an invasive surgery procedure is that a thread lift is non-surgical and designed to complement the natural contours of the face, leaving a more natural, refreshed look. This is opposed to surgery which aims to reshape or distort the facial features.

    The suture material or threads are specially designed to dissolve over time with typical results lasting 12-18 months, therefore there is no need to have them removed.

    At Naturally Beautiful Aesthetics, we believe in offering in-depth consultations to help our patients understand the procedure in and out and the outcome that can be expected from each treatment.

    Every consultation at our clinic involves our practitioners conducting a detailed analysis of your skin type, existing skin conditions, your expectations from the treatment, and the possible treatments that can give you the outcome you desire. By giving your every information related to a thread lifting procedure, we help you make an informed decision and prepare you better for the treatment.

    The consultation will not only cover the treatment options and the procedures for each treatment but also the cost, the number of sessions you will require, and other related details. The doctor will also take a few before and after thread lift pictures for comparison.
