Is there a non-surgical alternative to a facelift available? As it happens, there is, and it is called a thread lift.
Thread lifts come in many varieties. The experts at Rejuve use Novathreads to provide effective thread lift treatments to their clients. When applied correctly, a thread lift can raise your skin, tightening its structure and making you look much younger. All of this is done without gaining any scars or going under the knife.
What is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting an absorbable polymer into your skin. This is done via a tiny catheter that ensures the ‘thread’ finds its way into the dermis. The thread itself is made from polydioxanone (PDO), which can easily be absorbed by the body.
Once under your skin, the thread will tighten and contour the shape of your face, essentially lifting the skin in certain areas. It stays here for a few months, where it helps to synthesize collagen production in the treatment area. After it has been absorbed naturally, the effects of collagen production and skin tightness continue to be present.
How Long Will a Thread Lift Last?
PDO threads have a very long-lasting effect on your skin. The actual thread itself will be around for 4-6 months before it is absorbed by the natural process of hydrolysis. As such, it is pulling at and tightening your skin for this entire period, after which the skin stays in place and collagen continues to be produced. Overall, most patients see the results of their thread lift lasting for around 12-15 months in total.
Benefits of PDO Thread Lifts
PDO thread lifts can help you reverse the signs of aging and enjoy a more youthful appearance to your skin. These threads will literally tighten the skin, removing wrinkles and making your skin look and feel much smoother.
As an added benefit, PDO thread lifts encourage collagen production. This is the most abundant protein in the body, and it is responsible for giving your skin strength and structure. Most wrinkles form because of a lack of collagen, so your thread lift can prevent further wrinkles from forming while adding more volume to your skin at the same time.
You can receive all of these benefits without needing any surgery at all! A short injection is all that’s required to place the threads in the right place, but this leaves no scars and yields no side effects. It is literally like getting a facelift without the surgery or the extensive recovery time afterward.
Am I a Candidate for a Thread Lift?
Thread lifts are suitable for almost everyone. If you have a fear of needles, this might not be the treatment for you – though our experts will do everything to ensure the procedure is as calming and relaxing as possible.
Generally, most candidates will suffer from self-confidence issues relating to signs of aging in their faces. If you have wrinkles or your skin seems to be too loose around your face, you could be a good candidate for Novathreads.
