WHAT IS THREAD LIFT?
THREAD LIFT is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. It involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads (PDO threads) – similar to those used in medical suturing – into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles.
The procedure itself is considered to be a minimally invasive surgical procedure with a small incision footprint to the skin. Small serial puncture points are made into the areas where the invisible threads will be inserted. The procedure itself takes approximately 20-30 minutes depending on how many areas of the face or body will be treated during the procedure.
THREAD LIFT has been regarded by Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons as a significant advancement in the aesthetic and anti-aging medicine designed for patients that don’t require plastic surgery or would like to enhance or correct minor aesthetic contrasts. The technique itself is ideal for the aesthetic practitioner because of the reduced learning curve in learning the technique, patient safety considerations, and the additional revenue the procedure provides.
INDICATIONS FOR THREAD LIFT
THREAD LIFT is ideally suited for patients in their 30’s to 50’s who are experiencing the traditional signs of aging such as sagging skin and loss of volume in the face and other body areas. Thread Lifting can create a dramatic improvement to any area of the face or body which needs a lifting effect.
Neocollagenesis and retraction of skin tissues where PDO and PLLA threads are placed is immediate and continues to improve post treatment and last for up to 24 months.
Placement of all resorbable threads can be reversed through light energies (RF & IPL Light Energies).
