How Does Thread Lifting Work?
During a thread lifting treatment, suture-like barbed threads are gently inserted under the skin with a needle. Then, these threads are pulled to tighten sagging skin while simultaneously stimulating collagen growth. The threads (absorbable sutures) are then metabolized and absorbed by the body over time, leaving you with newly produced collagen that can last up to three years.
Thread Lifting vs. Standard Facelift
There’s a reason so many people choose thread lifting in Los Angeles over a standard facelift. Thread lifting offers a variety of unique advantages, especially considering how quick and minimally invasive the procedure is. While the typical facelift consists of an invasive surgery usually done under full anesthesia, thread lifting can be done in just 30 minutes using local anesthesia. Additionally, while the standard facelift may leave you recovering for up to two weeks, thread lifting offers little to no downtime. However, for some patients, thread lifting may not offer enough lift as opposed to a full surgical facelift. The ideal candidate for thread lifting does not have excessive sagging or laxity of skin, but instead is dealing with the beginning stages of sagging skin.
