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 age, our bodies gradually produce less collagen, leading 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 adequately support the tissues beneath it, 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 gradually improve 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 in the dermis. Fortunately, the patient will not feel this happening because the threads placed under the skin during a thread lift are so small. Most people cannot handle their sutures once the skin has healed around them.
The only way to address problems caused by facial skin laxities such as jowls and drooping cheeks recently was facelift surgery. After all, while skin resurfacing treatments can help restore some firmness, only a scalpel can 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 the gap between noninvasive facial rejuvenation and facelift surgery: The "thread lift."
What is a thread lift?
A thread lift is a procedure wherein temporary sutures produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of surgically removing the patient's loose facial skin, 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.
On the other hand, recovery from a thread lift 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 soreness, redness, and swelling after having a thread lift and 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 with children at home or busy, demanding care.
While thread lift recovery is not particularly intensive, patients must take minor precautions while healing. It's essential to ensure you don't rub your face vigorously while cleansing it or applying moisturizer for at least a week after placing threads. It would be best if you also tried to prop your head up slightly so that you don't roll over directly onto your face while sleeping.
Finally, thread lifts are much easier to perform than facelift surgery, and they are much more affordable. Patients must maintain realistic expectations for this procedure, which is advantageous through thread lifts. While thread lifts certainly produce visible changes, they will generally only raise the face by a few millimeters; as such, they create a more subtle and natural-looking result than facelift surgery. Thread lifts are, therefore, best suited to patients dealing with mild to moderate, rather than severe, signs of skin laxity.
