The thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure for the face, neck, or jowls.It is one of the options for lifting and tightening sagging facial skin without going under the knife. Unlike a traditional surgical face-lift, the thread lift doesn’t involve incisions or “deep-tissue manipulation”. This means that, it is a much easier process for the patient (like getting fillers as opposed to getting a facelift), but it can’t achieve a result of the same magnitude or longevity of a traditional face-lift. It can be a good option for someone looking for an easy, less costly option for facial rejuvenation but can accept a result that is less dramatic than a face-lift and isn’t as long-lasting. A thread lift is exactly what it sounds like. “Using absorbable sutures, made from biodegradable polymers frequently used in medical devices, we can lift and recontour the mid- and lower face”. The sutures are inserted into the skin and can instantly tighten and lift problem areas with volume loss like the cheeks, jowls, lips and neck, while stimulating the body to build collagen in the area where the sutures are place.
