A thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to lift and rejuvenate your face or other parts of your body using dissolvable surgical threads. Unlike traditional facelifts involving surgical incisions, a thread lift offers a nonsurgical alternative to address mild to moderate sagging or laxity in your skin.
A threat lift might be right for you if you have mild to moderate skin laxity or sagging in specific areas of your face, such as your:
You also need to be in generally good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.
Thread lifts are best suited for you if you’re looking for subtle improvements without invasive surgical procedures.
During a thread lift, dissolvable threads made of materials such as polydioxanone (PDO) or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) are strategically inserted into your skin through small incisions or entry points. These threads have small cones or barbs that grip your skin tissue, allowing your provider to gently reposition and lift the targeted areas of your face.
As the threads are placed, they stimulate your body's natural collagen production, contributing to gradual skin tightening and firmness over time.
You can expect the results of your thread lift to be visible right after your procedure, providing an immediate lifting effect. However, the full benefits become more noticeable as your skin heals and collagen production increases.
While individual experiences may vary, the effects of a thread lift typically last a year or two. Over time, the threads dissolve naturally, but the newly stimulated collagen helps maintain some level of lift and improved skin texture.
The longevity of your results can be influenced by various factors, including the type of threads used, your skin characteristics, and your lifestyle factors. Your provider at Colorado Skin Care may recommend maintenance treatments to prolong the effects of your thread lift.
