If you are looking for a minimally invasive treatment to tighten lax skin on your face and neck, a thread lift may be just what you need. A thread lift is an innovative, effective treatment that gives the face an instant lift using absorbable sutures. But how long does a thread lift last?
What Is A Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a minimally invasive skin treatment in which temporary sutures are used to lift the skin and reposition facial tissues that have descended. The procedure is typically done using biocompatible polydioxanone PDO threads.
How Does A Thread Lift Work?
A special needle is used to insert the PDO threads under the skin. The threads remain beneath the skin when the needle is removed and are absorbed over time. The sutures stimulate collagen which makes the skin firmer and more toned and provides a subtle lift for the cheeks, jowls, and neck.
How Long Does A Thread Lift Last?
The effects of a thread lift typically last 1-3 years but there are variables that can influence the longevity of the results.
PDO threads are absorbable so the speed with which patients metabolize the threads will impact the duration of the thread lift. Threads stimulate collagen which adds volume to the skin, and helps maintain the lifted appearance of the face over several months.
The placement of the threads and the skill and experience of the surgeon are other factors that can influence how long a thread lift lasts.
Am I A Good Candidate For A Thread Lift?
If you have loose skin on your face and neck, but you’re not quite ready for a facelift, you may be a good candidate for a thread lift.
