Want to Perk up Your Face & Jawline - think Thread Lifts

A thread lift is a procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body's "healing response" and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of collagen's vital role in the aging process.

Collagen helps support "growth factors" that dramatically influence our skin condition. In addition to being used for wound healing, collagen helps to keep our skin firm, voluminous and supple. As we get older, our bodies gradually produce less and less collagen, which leads to an 80% reduction in skin thickness by about age 70. This loss of volume and strength is a significant factor in creating excess skin and wrinkles. As the skin grows weaker, it can no longer support the tissues beneath it adequately, meaning that gravity pulls it downwards and stretches it. Infusing the skin of the face with fresh collagen when the signs of skin laxity are still mild can help reduce looseness (by thickening and hydrating the skin) and prevent it from getting worse (by strengthening the skin).


In other words, this process provides ongoing and progressive rejuvenation for the facial tissues. Patients with a thread lift for stimulating collagen will notice a gradual improvement in their skin tone and firmness. While their threads are in place, this will constantly activate the body's healing response because it will want to "heal" the sutured areas and expel the sutures. The body is biologically programmed to react when it senses any foreign object present within the dermis. Fortunately, because the threads placed under the skin during a thread lift are so small, the patient will not feel this happening. Most people cannot handle their sutures once the skin has healed around them.

This is right after the Thread Lift Procedure. It's that exciting. You see immediate results and those results continue to improve as time passes. People will comment on how refreshed you look. They will tell you your sign looks so tight, and wrinkle free. It's such a great win. What a wonderful procedure.


Recovery from a thread lift, on the other hand, is comparatively easy. Thread lifts can be performed under local rather than general anesthesia, meaning that thread lift patients can drive themselves home and look after themselves immediately after having their procedure. While some patients will experience a little bit of soreness, redness, and swelling after having a thread lift and therefore wish to take the rest of the day off, most can return to work immediately. Potent pain medication is seldom needed after having a thread lift, making it easier for patients to return to their routine. Therefore, this procedure is ideal for people who have children at home or busy, demanding careers.

See how subtle the change is. Like you lost weight, worked out and it's up to you if you want to share your secret.

Recently the only way to address problems caused by facial skin laxities—such as jowls and drooping cheeks—was facelift surgery. After all, while skin resurfacing treatments can help restore some degree of firmness, only a scalpel can genuinely remove it once loose skin is present. However, while the approach of relying on injectable compounds and skin resurfacing until facelift surgery becomes necessary works for many patients, not everyone is willing or able to have surgery. If you're in this group, you'll be happy to know that a new type of procedure has been developed to fill in the gap between noninvasive facial rejuvenation and facelift surgery: The "thread lift."
