What is a thread lift?
A thread lift is a non-invasive procedure where the sutures are placed in the fat just beneath the skins surface. This then achieves a natural looking lift in the skin, to return the skin to its original position. You can see it’s a very subtle result from the photograph taken below.
This is a perfect treatment for a mature aged client, with sagging skin and loss of elasticity.
Before & 3 weeks post treatment
What to expect during this procedure and afterwards
The procedure takes about 45 minutes. A thread lift procedure can be performed without sedation, however some patients may request it if they would rather not experience the procedure. The downtime for threading is normally 2-3 days, and mild to moderate swelling may appear, with possibility of slight bruising.
It’s advised that you do not undertake any lifting of heavy weight for one week, and only do small extension on jaw line ( i.e. don’t open mouth wide). The best results will be seen 1-3 months post treatment.
