Traditional surgical facelift procedures are no longer the only way of taking years off of your age. Beauty lift threads are now a popular, non-surgical alternative that is offered by many cosmetic therapy and beauty clinics. But what does this procedure offer and what's involved? Read on to find out more.
What are modern beauty lift threads?
The latest, modern beauty lift threads are an updated version of an already established cosmetic face-lifting method. Special lifting threads can be used on any area of the face to tackle many of the dreaded ageing effects, such as crows' feet, forehead lines, eye bags, smile furrows and excess chin sagging. The procedure is suitable for both men and women and is reputedly most effective on older people whose skin is beginning to lose its tone and elasticity.
Unlike the old-style thread lifting procedures that entail using tiny hooks and rakes within the skin to achieve the lifted look, modern thread lifting uses smooth threads of differing thickness containing polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are inserted into your skin, muscle or subcutaneous fat using a very fine cannula (needle). PDO stimulates your skin cells to produce more collagen, leaving the skin firmer, smoother, and free from wrinkles. Your skin will appear more lifted, lighter in tone, and younger. Unlike old school skin tightening treatments like Botox, which can cause an overly-rigid, immobile look to the skin, this technology uses your own natural tension lines that already exist within the skin, and this produces a much more natural result.
This painless, minimally invasive procedure will be carried out in a cosmetic therapy clinic and there's no need for overnight admission. Aside from a small amount of local bruising, there's no lengthy recovery time to go through and no residual scarring. The treatment requires no anaesthesia so there's no general anaesthetic to go through.
The effects of the treatment are apparent within a few weeks and continue to develop as the threads are naturally absorbed by the body. The modern thread lift will eventually need repeating in order to maintain its effects but is generally long lasting.
A modern beauty thread lift is the latest alternative to costly, invasive surgical procedures, which can be painful and come with a long recovery time and some scarring. Ask your local beauty therapist or cosmetic surgery clinic for more information about this procedure and look forward to a younger-looking you!
