We’ve all heard the age-old adage of, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and “beauty comes from within.” While both statements are true, the way we feel about ourselves on the outside often reflects the way we feel on the inside. At Cosmetique Aesthetics, we provide services to help you feel confident, radiant, and beautiful inside and out. One of these services is called a thread lift.
Also called a “lunchtime facelift”, a thread lift is a quick and minimally invasive procedure that provides long-lasting results. During the treatment, a trained specialist inserts thin barbed threads beneath your skin with a fine needle. The threads are pulled gently to snug tissue that has become loose with age or skin damage.
The tightening procedure not only pulls together loose skin but also encourages the natural production of collagen within your skin cells. This provides a greater content of natural elasticity. The result of this facelift can be enjoyed for up to three years before requiring any sort of follow-up treatment.
A common concern during a thread lift is what happens to the threads following the procedure. Cosmetique Aesthetics uses safe, organic, absorbable sutures, which are metabolized by the body and absorbed away. The sutures don’t completely leave your system until your skin has fused into position and the facelift process is complete.
A thread lift is an amazing alternative to traditional facelifts because they are non-surgical. This means you aren’t left with long recovery times where you’re down and out and off the job. Some of the other advantages of a thread lift include:
While a traditional facelift requires hours of work to achieve a clean look with minimal scarring, a thread lift takes only half an hour. This explains the nickname, “lunchtime facelift”. You could technically complete the procedure during a lunch break.
During your thread lift, there could be mild discomfort due to the needle entering your skin. For this we use a mild local anesthetic, so you don’t feel a thing. For a surgical facelift, surgeons require the use of full anesthesia.
Due to the lack of full anesthetic and the minimally invasive element of this effective non-surgical procedure, you require little to no downtime. So, while those who have received a surgical facelift are left recovering for weeks before they experience the skin tightening effects of their treatment, you can enjoy yours right away.
It’s important to note that while a thread lift offers a variety of benefits, it’s not for everyone. Candidates who have excessively sagging skin, looking for a full lift may still need to schedule a traditional facelift to achieve the desired outcome. For early signs of aging, a thread lift is a perfect solution.
