How Long Does a Thread Lift Last?
The results of your thread lift can last for about 12 to 15 months. The threads we use to perform your treatment and lift your skin leave a long-lasting effect. Because it takes several months before the threads are naturally absorbed by your body, the pulling and tightening effect of your treatment will last long. Furthermore, the boost in collagen production due to the treatment will support the firmness of your skin for much longer.
What Is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves placing an absorbable polymer thread into your skin. To perform this treatment, we use a tiny catheter that guides the threads into their right position in the epidermis. The placement of the threads provides a visible lifting effect on your skin, and it is eventually absorbed by your body.
The threads placed under your skin will lift, tighten, and enhance the contours of your face. And while the threads are in place, they help improve the production of collagen in the treated areas. After the threads have been naturally absorbed by your tissues, the effects of new collagen production, such as tighter and firmer skin, continue to be visible.
Does This Treatment Really Work?
The use of absorbable polymer threads isn’t new. Polymer threads have been in use for medical and surgical applications for decades. When it comes to cosmetic treatments, polymer threads offer a non-surgical alternative to facelifts, thanks to their ability to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin with increased collagen production.
What To Expect When Getting a Thread Lift
Our team will ensure that you’re completely comfortable and at ease during your treatment. Before placing polymer threads into your skin, we will first apply a topical numbing agent and a local anesthetic to ensure that you’re pain-free and conscious throughout the treatment.
If you have a busy schedule, then you’ll love the fact that it only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete your thread lift treatment. One of the reasons why many men and women choose to get this treatment is because it’s relatively quick. There’s no need for an overnight hospital stay or extended downtime. You’ll be able to return to your daily activities right away.
Before getting this treatment, you should schedule a consultation with our team for a general discussion of your overall health, medical history, and cosmetic goals. We might advise you to stop taking certain medications, stop smoking, and engage in high-intensity activities to ensure that you are fully prepared to receive the treatment.
To achieve the best results, it will be necessary to follow our aftercare instructions and take good care of your skin. In general, you should avoid strenuous activities, including activities that will strain your facial tissues. It’s also recommended that you avoid sleeping on your side or stomach for about two weeks to allow the polymer threads to settle in their ideal position in your epidermis.
You can expect near-immediate results from your treatment. As your skin adjusts to the treatment, you’ll notice visibly tighter, lifted skin, and more youthful facial contours. By observing proper skin care and avoiding direct sun exposure, you can expect to see your best results much sooner. Within one to two months of your treatment, you should see the final and best results of your treatment.
The number and frequency of treatments you’ll need to achieve your best results will depend on your age, skin condition, and how well your body responds to the treatment. Generally, you can achieve significant results after just one thread lift session. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled after six to twelve months so we can assess whether you need a touch-up treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for this treatment are those who have mild to moderate wrinkles and skin laxity. There is no ideal age to get this treatment, but most men and women choose to get this treatment around their late 30s to early 50s. If you are in good overall health and would like to feel more youthful by refreshing your appearance, we can recommend a non-surgical facelift for you.
