Thread Lift Before and After
Thread face lifts, which have been dubbed the knifeless facelift, are a great way for you to be able to rejuvenate and tighten sagging and loose skin. This advanced procedure was made popular in South Korea as one of the most innovative ways for you to look young and refreshed.
You might be wondering how this miraculous procedure works. First, our professionals at Skinly Aesthetics will apply a local anesthetic to the area where you will be treated to minimize the amount of pain. Then, the specialist will insert a cannula containing smooth or barbed threads approximately 3 to 5 mm deep to the skin, which will then be fixed in position using slight pulling pressure. The barbs serve as hooks onto which the subcutaneous tissues are securely hung and effectively lifted. As a results certain sections of your face will be pulled back and repositioned, shedding years off your face as a final result.
Additionally, collagen production is triggered around the thread itself secondary to polydioxanone’s (PDO) stimulatory effect. After the threads are degraded by the body the collagen matrix that is formed will serve as struts or scaffold and provide continuing support and lifting for overlying skin. You will not feel the sutures post procedure as they integrate into your own tissues in a few weeks.
Thread Lift NYC Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does It Take?
It takes anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes to complete the lifting session depending on the complexity of the case and the desired results. In the vast majority of cases you can immediately return to normal activities and go back to work and regular activities.
When will I see the results of thread lifting?
The results are immediate as your tissues are lifted, tightened and repositioned. As time goes on the lifting effect is slightly diminished, but as new collagen grows, the results will continue to improve. Overall, the effects of lifting and tightening can last up to 2 years. We strongly recommend that our patients come for an interval touch up to increase the duration of results.
Are thread lifts permanent?
Thread lifts are not permanent, but they will last for a long time. The biodegradable PDO polymer is absorbed by the body over a period of 12-24 months. You may need to come back for another PDO thread lift touch up in 12 months.
How long does it last?
The great news is that you will find that these results will last you for quite a long time. Depending on how your body absorbs and dissolves the threads, it is expected that the results of PDO threading will last you anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Regular maintenance every 1-2 years is recommended for best results.
What is the recovery time?
Since this is a minimally invasive procedure, you will be able to continue with your regular activities as soon as the next day. But we do not recommend that you schedule an appointment for face threading if you have a special event to attend within the next two weeks. This is simply because you may experience some swelling and bruising. Facial massages, extractions, peels and intense workouts will have to be postponed for 2-4 weeks.
