Facial skin laxity is a natural part of the ageing process, one that can thankfully be addressed through numerous procedures. Those problematic jowls and droopy cheeks can be countered with the help of facelift surgery, along with other skin resurfacing techniques. Until recently, a scalpel has been deemed as the only solution to regaining your glow.
Thankfully, the advent of new technologies and medical progression has paved the way for better and less invasive procedures. This ensures that patients remain safe from the surgery option, especially since not everyone has the physical capacity to withstand such an invasive treatment.
Today, women all over the world enjoy a minimally invasive face rejuvenation procedure—the thread lift. Here’s everything you need to know about this beauty wonder:
The Thread Lift: An Overview
A thread lift essentially pertains to the procedure of placing temporary sutures in the face, which allows a subtle yet visible lift to the skin. This allows the patients to skip the need to remove loose skin surgically, as the surgeon simply suspends the skin by stitching it up. The ultimate effect is to pull the skin back, allowing the face to lift and tighten.
Apart from lifting, however, the threads are also capable of combating ageing through a crucial body procedure. With the threads in place, your body will naturally heal as a response, causing it to directly provide collagen on the “affected” areas.
Thread lifts are also low-risk treatments, especially since the threads simply cannot cause bleeding, scarring, bruising, and other complications known to happen in surgeries. The rarest cases only lead to irritation, likely caused by a reaction to the thread. Thankfully, Cleo Clinic makes use of only RM 188 threads, guaranteed to be safe, hygienic, and FDA-approved for use.
How long can a thread lift last?
Facial lift surgeries are known to be permanent, so it’s only natural to think about the longevity of a thread lift. Thankfully, they’ve also been designed for the long term. You’ll also be given the chance to enjoy immediate results, as your skin can be lifted and supported as soon as the final suture has been placed.
The full results will develop after six months after the collagen build-up has helped your skin “heal”. The new look can last for a whopping 18 months and can be repeated as necessary. In many cases, however, only additional treatments are needed to extend the effects.
What do I need to know about the recovery period?
As previously mentioned, thread lifts are minimally invasive. Recovery is therefore easy, especially since thread lifts are performed only under local anaesthesia. You can easily drive yourself home after the procedure, with little to no help needed.
It’s normal to expect a bit of redness, swelling, and soreness immediately after, however, which may prompt you to take the rest of the day off. For many, returning to their daily routines immediately can be also possible.
Work with the Best
Thread lifts are a game-changer in the beauty industry, especially since the noninvasive procedure allows you a better opportunity to enjoy the lift effect without dealing with scarring, bruising, and bleeding. This innovative procedure often works best for candidates in the late 30s and early 50s, but it’s important to first speak to a doctor before trying. You’ll need to provide your full medical history, especially when it comes to the medications you’re currently taking. Your safety should be your top priority!
