A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face.
There are two types of threads
1.Young Adult thread
They contain a number of sutures interspersed with tiny “cones” that are adept at grabbing tissue. This allows the threads to gather more skin, producing a more noticeable lift to the cheeks and jowls. Young Adult threads are designed to create fairly long-lasting results.
2 Baby face thread
They are ideal for gathering skin (and therefore producing more lifting action) and straight or curved smooth sutures. Smooth sutures produce less of a lift, but they are excellent for collagen stimulation. Patients often have smooth sutures placed in strategic locations around their face (such as the corner of the mouth or along the brows) in order to target common problem areas where the signs of aging become particularly apparent.
What peparation do you need? :Do not take Vitamin or analgesic 1 week prior. This will help reducing the risk of having bruises.
How long is the process? : 45 minutes for anesthetic and 30 minutes for thread lifting
Does it hurt?
It may hurt a little for when injecting anesthetiser or you can choose for applying option. After you feel numbness, it will not feel any pain.
What to do after the treatment : have 4 eggs daily for naturally building collagen for your skin. No Laser or facial treatment for at least 2 weeks.
