Polydioxanone — a clinically proven material already used in surgical sutures. It’s the preferred choice of material for a thread face lift as it naturally and safely breaks down and dissolves in the body.
Who’s the best candidate for a thread lift?
Men and women in their 30s and beyond who have mild to moderate drooping, lines, and wrinkles in the forehead, face and/or neck. We can also perform the treatment as a non surgical eyelift or on other areas of the body, such as, upper arms, stomach, and thighs.
You must also be in overall good health and have realistic expectations of the treatment. Facelift threading is best suited for those who want to enhance their appearance without resorting to cosmetic surgery.
What happens during the procedure?
Local anaesthetic will be applied to the treated area, so you will be comfortable throughout your face thread lift. Your doctor will then use a cannula or a micro-needle to insert the PDO threads into the deeper layer of your skin. You will be able to return to your usual activities within a couple of days.
How long does treatment take?
Your non surgical face lift will take around 45-60 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.
When will I see results?
You will notice an immediate improvement right after your threading face lift. Optimal results will begin show over 2-6 months as collagen production is stimulated. The threads will dissolve over six months, but the results will be maintained for much longer.
How long do results last?
This varies depending on the patient’s age at the time of treatment, the quality of the skin, the degree of sagging and the number of threads used. However, results tend to last 2-3 years on average.
Contour thread lift is the latest development in a long line of implantable, specially designed surgical threads used to lift sagging skin on the mid face, forehead, eyebrows and neck.
It is done to give more youthful, rested look, gained in a short period of time with minimal scarring and without being given general anesthesia. Having a contour thread lift costs much less than having full face lift.
