Facial threads involves the insertion of dissolvable threads into specific target locations in the face (or body). These threads are then lifted, pulling the skin into its rightful place. Restoring volume, skin quality and texture. In response the skin produces more collagen and elastic around the threads, which produce long lasting results even after the original thread has dissolved. The best candidates for thread lifting are individuals aged 35 to 55 year olds with relatively good skin tone and mild to moderate laxity.
Thread Lift Procedure
Thread lifting is an in clinic procedure, performed under local anaesthetic, and takes about 30 – 60 minutes. Multiple threads (or however many are required based on treatment area) are introduced with a needle or a blunt ended cannula which is removed once the threads have been positioned.
Recovery From a Thread Lift
Most people are able to return to normal activities immediately. There may be some redness, pin prick marks, and some degree of swelling, possibly some puckering along the site of the suture, possibly, indentations at the insertion or exit points.
The immediate side effects are expected to settle within two weeks.
For up to a week after the procedure it may feel tender around the sutures which is relieved with Paracetamol.
