The New Year is a perfect time to hit the refresh button, and thread lifts are turning out to be one of the most popular “refreshers!” Wondering what all the fuss is about? Keep reading!
Thread lifts are skyrocketing in popularity because:
They are safe.
At Atagi Plastic Surgery & Skin Aesthetics, we use FDA-approved NovaThread threads. The threads are made of a fully-absorbable suture called polydioxanone (PDO), a material so safe it is used in cardiothoracic surgery. The threads are inserted parallel to the surface of your skin with hypodermic needles, providing a sort of scaffolding support structure that lifts and smooths the appearance of skin.
They stimulate your skin’s natural healing response.
Threads stimulate the production of collagen and elastin long after the threads have fully dissolved. With a thread lift, you can experience 12 to 18 months age-defying benefits resulting from your own body’s natural healing power — nothing else!
They rejuvenate the neck and jowls without surgery.
With thread lifts, there’s finally a way to lift and correct sagging neck skin or jowls without surgery. Before thread lifts, the most common way a person could improve the appearance of a tricky aesthetic concern like jowls or neck bands was surgery. While injectables are extremely effective for smoothing wrinkles and restoring lost volume, they are not always suitable for rejuvenating the neck and jowl areas. This is why thread lifts are such an amazing non-surgical alternative.
They are convenient.
A thread lift treatment typically takes about an hour. You’ll experience some side effects following your session, including swelling, pinpoint bleeding, and bruising, but these side effects resolve on their own in the days following treatment. Makeup is an easy way to cover any bruising and redness, resulting in minimal social downtime for you.
