The medical industry has undergone a lot of transformation in the last few years. Facial treatments, for example, are safer, cheaper, and require less downtime than ever before. This makes it easy for people with aging signs to boost their look without breaking the bank or taking too much time away from work to recover. Additionally, we’ve found better ways to achieve the results of a surgical procedure without the downtime associated with it. Thread lifts are one increasingly popular option, so here’s what to know about them and how you can benefit.
The Benefits of Thread Lifts
Thread lifts have been around for a while, but the thread lifts of today are refined and effective. They work by inserting specialized surgical threads under the skin and lifting the tissues to a more upright position. The threads remain in place and stimulate collagen production over time, allowing your body’s natural tissues to maintain the look. This means there are no incisions, no downtime, and long-term results. Thread lifts can even be performed in an office setting, after which you can return home.
Am I A Good Candidate for Thread Lifts?
The thread lift is most effective for patients in their 40s and upwards. This is usually the stage where patients have mild to moderate skin laxity but are only seeing the beginning signs of aging. However, patients with more severe signs of aging might have to explore their surgical options for best results. That’s because skin that is too loose won’t respond well to a thread lift. Additionally, you should be in good overall health before opting for a thread lift and be able to take minimal time away from exercise or certain activities to ensure best results.
Can I Combine Thread Lifts with Other Treatments?
There are a wide variety of non-surgical treatment options available, and thread lifts are just one of them. Thread lifts can very easily be combined with other treatment options – in fact, you can achieve even better results this way. Other treatment options like Botox®, dermal fillers, or chemical peels can help reduce signs of aging without downtime. Our team can create a customized treatment plan based on your goals for facial rejuvenation that includes both preventative and restorative options.
