Face thread can be used for lifting and tightening the skin, sharpen facial lines and to enhance the shape of facial features. It can be used in the jaw area to create a more defined jawline; it can be for the eyes and brows area to rejuvenate the eyes or it can also be used on the nose to fix a crooked nose or to get a sharper nose. Some of the areas face threads can be used to treat include:
- Jaw line
- Nasojugal folds
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow’s feet
- Undereye area
- Marionette lines
The threads used are like those used for suturing incisions after medical procedures and have been used safely for decades for various applications. For cosmetic procedures, the threads work in 2 ways, first the thread pulls the tissues and muscles under the skin to tighten it, secondly it stimulates collagen production to regenerate skin at a cellular level. This results in better skin texture and smoother and more elastic skin.
Thread lift is a non-surgical alternative to a face lift surgery. Skin is tightened and lifted using medical-grade thread. When face thread is inserted, it grips the tissue and muscles under the skin to lift the face. The thread also stimulates the body to produce collagen in the treated area resulting in secondary lifting effect. The collagen produced can fill gaps in sagging skin and restore a more youthful elasticity to your face.
After the procedure, there may be swelling and bruising that will go away in a few days. Optimum results can be seen around 1-2 weeks after the treatment and can last from 1-3 years.
