Thread Lift Treatment
Aging makes the skin look tired and loose. Signs of aging cannot be avoided, but they can be stopped temporarily and the process can be delayed. Making the skin quickly look young and energized is possible with non-surgical procedures like thread lift. This process is like a non-invasive facelift that tightens the skin and makes it firm and energized. Thread lift is a short procedure that is completed in less than an hour. Self-dissolving sutures are stitched to the skin that pulls it back and tightens the area. This process increases the production of collagen aiding in skin cell growth, and provides a smooth and glowing texture to the skin.
- This is a 45-minute procedure, where first the patient is reclined in a comfortable posture.
- Local anesthetic is delivered.
- Surgeon inserts a cannula for placing the thread underneath the skin.
- Once the thread is inserted, the cannula is removed.
- Immediate results are visible in a few weeks but for a complete change it may take up to a couple of years.
