Threads Lift

Threads Lift is a minimally invasive surgery for face lifting. In this operation, insert medical threads into the face and tighten the threads to pull the skin. Threads lift is a low-risk procedure with a short recovery time, but it can cause side effects of turning red, bruising, or swelling. The procedure only takes 45 minutes and you can return to work immediately if you want. The results of Threads Lift last from 1 to 3 years. For the best results, doctors recommend receiving not only Threads Lift but also other types of anti-aging procedures.

What is Threads Lift?

Threads Lift is a cosmetic procedure aimed at lifting and carving the shape of the face or chest. Threads Lift uses a temporary medical suture to tighten the skin. Threads Lift has existed since the 1990s, but the recent increase in the popularity of Threads Lift has led to innovation in the materials used in the procedure. The best Threads Lift candidates are in their late 30s to early 50s. Those who are healthy and have just begun to notice signs of aging can benefit the most from Threads Lift.

How does Threads Lift work?

There are two threads lift procedures. The first one is simple. Thread a thin, meltable suture under your skin, and the doctor can pull your skin tight around your forehead, neck, or torso. After the procedure, the body’s healing reaction is triggered. You are not injured by a thread under your skin, but your body detects suture substances and stimulates collagen production in the affected area. Collagen can fill gaps in sagging skin and restore younger elasticity to the face.

Threads Lift Procedure

The procedure is performed with the patient leaning back. Along with local anesthetics, alcohol is also prepared for surgery, so we will apply it to the skin. Thin needles or cannulas are used to insert threads under the skin. It may take 30 to 45 minutes to insert the thread. When threads are inserted, you can feel light pressure or tightness under your skin. The procedure is completed within a few minutes after the injection needle is pulled out.

After Threads Lift

In the case of Bleparoplasty surgery, the patient’s recovery time is relatively short. The day after surgery, bruises and swelling can occur, but they usually disappear soon. During the first 48 hours, you can use a cool compresses to reduce bruises and swelling around your eyes and face. Walking and light activities can help heal. The thin bandages over the incision will usually be removed in a few days, with threads remaining for about a week.

Most people can go back to their normal activities after about 7 to 10 days after surgery. Two weeks after eyelid surgery, most of the bruises and swelling will be disappeared.

Conclusion

Collagen helps cultivate factors that greatly affect skin condition. Collagen is not only used to recover wounds, but also keeps the skin strong, voluminous, and flexible. As we get older, our bodies produce fewer and fewer collagen. This action reduces the thickness of the skin by 80% until about 70 years old. Decrease in volume and force is the biggest factor in making wrinkles. As the skin weakens, the skin can no longer hold the tissue well below it, which means that gravity pulls and stretches the skin down. With signs of skin relaxation still light, injecting fresh collagen into the skin of the face can have a great effect.
