Address problems caused by facial skin laxity
When used as an aesthetic treatment a thread lift results in instant skin lifting and tightening. It promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and more elastic skin.
Because a thread lift is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face. These include the:
- Jaw line
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
Before & After
Before treatment starts, we will apply a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic to the treatment site. The needle used during this treatment is so fine it will not cause any pain. However, we provide anesthesia to ensure you feel no discomfort during the treatment.
Since thread lifts are non-invasive, there isn’t a lot you need to do to prepare. However, there are some precautionary measures you can take to ensure the best results from your treatment. Here are things you should avoid one to two days before treatment:
- Omega fish oil supplements
- Vitamin E
- Aspirin, Ibuprophen, blood thinners
Once the anesthetic has taken effect, your treatment will begin. The threads are inserted via blunt tip needles, called cannulas. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. Then, the excess threads are cut off.
A thread lift is customized to your unique skin type, skin texture and aesthetic goals. Depending on the area you want treated, you may receive three or four carefully placed barbed threads. Different threads are used for varying degrees of lift, skin tightening and cellular rejuvenation.
You should hold off on any dental treatments for the first two weeks after your thread lift.
Holding your mouth open for an excessive period of time can affect the results of your treatment. Moreover, you’ll want to sleep on your back for the first couple of weeks. This ensures you don’t put too much pressure on one side of your face.
