Thread Lift Results: What To Expect From Your Treatment
If you’re considering this treatment, you’re probably wondering what the thread lift results will look like? Will you look naturally more youthful or lifted? Will the results be visible or subtle? How long do thread lift results take to show? And is a thread lift worth it?
If you want to know what kind of thread lift results you’re likely to get, then this blog will share with you what to expect…
What Is A Thread Lift
A thread lift is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment designed to give your face a more youthful appearance.
It uses medical-grade absorbable sutures to restore structure to sagging skin and is very effective at contouring. A thread lift is a fantastic alternative to a surgical facelift.
The threads are safely inserted underneath the skin and then tightened and pulled back, re-suspending areas of your skin suffering from laxity. The thread lift results in your skin looking rejuvenated and smooth.
What Can A Thread Lift Do?
A thread lift can correct hollow cheeks, jowls, sagging cheeks, and deep wrinkles. Here are just some of the thread lift results that you can expect:
Round out hollow cheeks
Thread lifting can restore facial volume and help to plump up your hollow cheeks. Once the threads are embedded, they begin to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. Cheeks don’t have as much support, so they can sag as you age; threads will help to lift fat pads and create a youthful, fuller look
As you age, gravity pulls skin downwards thanks to the loss of collagen. Threads reposition your skin so your jawline is more defined.
Jowls are really hard to target with other treatments, and they are very stubborn to reduce naturally. Surgical solutions used to be one of the few options to treat hanging jowls. However, a thread lift effectively tightens the neck area, reducing the appearance of loose skin.
The threads lift and tighten your eyebrows and the area of your face above the eyes to remove wrinkles, brow furrows, and correct saggy or drooping eyebrows. The thread lift results in a smoother brow and a more youthful look.
Thread Lift: Results
Although the thread lift results are immediate, you will find that the best effects are visible after a few weeks once your body has had time to regenerate your cells and produce new collagen. You may experience some swelling and redness, which will reduce after a few days.
The threads work in two ways to improve your skin’s appearance.
The first is structural. A thread lift raises the skin, giving it structure – like scaffolding – to rest on. The sutures grip using cogs or cones, so they don’t move around. The lift is subtle, but the difference is incredible. You will look younger, your skin will be smoother, and you will have full control of your facial expressions.
The second benefit takes a little time to show. As the sutures dissolve they stimulate collagen production, which is essential to improving your skin’s structure. Increasing your collagen ensures that you will have a longer-term result.
People often worry that their thread lift results might look unnatural or the threads will be visible, but this isn’t the case. The threads are positioned well below the skin’s surface, and the gentle lift looks like you’ve just been taking great care of yourself.
A thread lift results in the smoothing of your skin without stretching it. It’s a simple, pain-free treatment you can enjoy during your lunch break. And you can even combine it with other treatments if you want a more dramatic look.
The Thread Lift Process
A thread lift is a safe and effective treatment that leaves you with firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin. It is a non-surgical treatment with minimal risk involved, and because a local anaesthetic is applied, you won’t experience any pain either.
Your doctor will identify the sagging skin around the area you want to be treated and mark where to position each thread. This is where the skill of your doctor is vital; an expert will ensure the threads are precisely located so that they provide the maximum effect without the risk of movement.
The threads will be inserted underneath your skin using a cannula. The threads are very fine and have small, cone-like structures running along their length. You won’t feel any discomfort, just a gentle pulling feeling as they are applied.
Once placed, the threads are then massaged to ensure they’re in the correct placement. Finally, they are then trimmed to ensure they’re secure and invisible inside your skin.
A thread lift procedure usually takes between 30 and 45 mins, and no downtime is needed. Read our blog here to learn more about aftercare. You should always check the reputation of your clinician as well as ask to see some of their thread lift results in photos or by speaking to a past client.
