Collagen production naturally declines as we age, resulting in the development of ageing signs. Often, the ageing signs go beyond wrinkles and fine lines, causing the skin to appear saggy.
For this case, I may suggest a face thread lift to my patients. This method is one of the ageing revision techniques that entail non-surgical means besides the face fillers, making it a safer option for patients who are wary of going under the knife.
If you’re experiencing intense ageing signs and want to get a face thread lift, wouldn’t it be nice for you to get as much information as you need about this treatment?
Look over the face thread lift review I’ll be providing in this article. Get a medical opinion on this innovative beauty treatment that can improve your appearance using a non-surgical method.
Reasons to Try Face Thread Lift
Patients seek face-thread lift treatment for a variety of reasons. One of the most common reasons is that it is a less invasive method that allows them to avoid surgery. Recovery times also become shorter since there are no surgical actions taken.
Additionally, face-thread lift usually costs cheaper than surgical facelifts. Its affordability drives patients to go for this beauty enhancement method. Besides, not only is a face-thread lift inexpensive, but it also produces comparable results to surgical facelifts.
Face Problems Solvable with Face Thread Lift
Aside from the common reasoning (i.e., non-surgical method), patients who have undergone this facial enhancement procedure typically have some issues that compel them to have it done. Take a look into the common problems divided into two main categories:
Ageing symptoms typically appear in the late 20s, when natural collagen production begins to decline. After entering your 30s, the signs become more visible, and their prevalence increases as you age.
Applying skincare can help prevent premature ageing. However, some people may develop them later in their lives despite using skincare regularly due to several factors such as lifestyle, diet, and UV ray exposure.
Fortunately, with face thread lift, they can revise their imperfections that manifest as wrinkles, deep skin folds, and loose skin. The treatment works by placing bio-degradable threads beneath the skin, effectively giving the required lift for them to appear fresh and younger than they are.
Weak Facial Features
Weak facial features can also be the reason why people are seeking face thread lifts. The thread-lifting technique can correct weak jawline, eyebrow, smile lines, and chin areas to make them appear more defined.
Patients who go for face threading due to weak facial features may or may not have ageing signs present around their skin. If they have no issues with ageing signs, they usually opt for this threading procedure to make their face more attractive by giving it a remarkable impression.
Furthermore, the inserted barbed sutures beneath will lift their skin and place it into the desired position. The lifted skin ultimately boosts their confidence and gives their face a firm and defined appearance.
Benefits of Face Thread Lift
The non-surgical face thread lift offers a variety of benefits. Based on my experience performing this treatment on my patients, it provides them with a natural and subtle lift.
Most importantly, the benefits of biodegradable thread placement go beyond giving lifting effects. Following the barbed sutures beneath the skin, the body will gradually produce more collagen. The collagen eventually remodels itself to maintain skin rejuvenation for a long time, even after the sutures dissolve, allowing them to notice the following enhancements:
- Fresh and younger-looking skin
- Fewer skin folds
- Minimised appearance of wrinkles
- Smoother-looking complexion
- Firm and defined facial contours
Suitable Candidates for This Treatment
Face thread lift treatment is suitable for everyone aged 25 to 60+ who is in good health and has started noticing ageing signs on their faces. Around this age range, ageing signs become prevalent problems that cause the skin to appear loose and result in unappealing facial contours.
Skin thins and elastin fibres break down as we age, resulting in wrinkles, deep lines, and increased skin laxity. Thankfully, by opting for this treatment, my patients can enjoy rejuvenated, younger-looking skin that boosts their self-esteem.
Face Thread Lift Preparations
Face thread lift is a procedure that involves direct skin contact. It requires special care because getting it wrong could result in negative consequences.
As a result, I oblige my patients to go through preparation before getting it done. The preparation involves the following activities:
The consultation phase entails patients who come into the clinic to address their concerns and get their skin conditions examined. At this stage, I usually will take a look into their skin issues and determine how many threads to place beneath their skin.
I usually also suggest they have realistic expectations towards this treatment. Since face threading is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment, the lifting effects are more subtle and natural compared to surgical facelifts.
Consumption Intake Regulation
Face thread lift comes into direct contact with the skin. Patients frequently experience a variety of side effects after receiving it, which include bleeding, swelling, and bruising.
Ensuring quick recovery requires coordination between patients and the performing physician. For that reason, I usually advise my patients to regulate or even restrict consuming certain foods, drinks, and medications that intensify the side effects, such as:
- Aspirin and other blood thinners
- Fish oils
- Vitamin E
Face Thread Lift Process
After understanding the preparation of the treatment, it’s time for me to explain how I usually perform it to my patients.
According to the hygiene standard, performing a face thread lift requires me to begin by cleansing the entire facial skin. The cleansing solution will remove any germs and dirt that could irritate the skin.
Following that, I will apply the numbing cream to the treatment area. Numbing cream allows patients to feel less of the painful sensations that may occur during the procedure, which is especially beneficial for patients with low pain tolerance.
Next, I will mark the thread insertion points on the patients’ skin. Based on the previous consultation phase, this will better guide me in placing the biodegradable sutures.
After that, I’ll begin inserting the barbed sutures into the skin. When inserting the very fine biodegradable threads, I use a cannula to lift and tighten the skin, resulting in a more precise insertion.
I will tap on the skin to ensure that the threads are properly placed. I usually also do this to check how the skin has been repositioned in the desired positions.
The duration of the face threading procedure depends on the areas of treatment. I usually perform this procedure under local anaesthesia for 30 – 60 minutes.
Face Thread Lift After Effect
It is common for patients to experience side effects after undergoing the thread lift procedure. The side effects are generally not to be concerned about because they usually go away in less than two weeks. The following are some of the most frequent side effects of thread lifting treatment:
- Minor bleeding
- Painful sensations at injection sites
Although it may be tempting to touch your face after the treatment, you should avoid doing so. You can’t ensure that your hand is free of bacteria, and touching your face could result in an infection.
Instead, follow these recommendations to deal with the side effects and recover properly:
- Apply icepacks around the treatment areas
- Avoid rubbing your face
- Cleanse skin with a gentle facial wash
- Avoid sleeping on your face or side
- Avoid exercising for 24 hours
One of the factors that motivate patients to undergo face threading treatment is the result. However, since this method uses non-surgical means, the results may be more subtle and natural rather than dramatic.
The expected result from this technique is improved skin complexion with less of wrinkles, deep folds, and droopy skin. The levels of enhancement, on the other hand, will depend on the preceding skin condition.
For instance, patients with fewer ageing signs may notice more visible smooth-looking skin than patients with more ageing signs. However, as ageing signs commonly become more prevalent as you get older, the final appearance should not be the only focus-instead, consider how the results could rewind your ageing process and make you look younger.
How Long Will the Result Last?
Face threading employs biodegradable sutures that are safe and dissolvable by the body. That means the inserted threads will remain temporarily beneath the skin before dissolving after an average of 12 months.
After the body completely absorbs the sutures, patients can come back for a retouch. As a result, they can regain their optimal appearance and maintain it for as long as they wish.
Face Thread Lift Choices
There are numerous brands of face-thread lifts on the market. Each brand uses a different set of ingredients and focuses on a different area of the face.
Take a look into these brands and see if one of them suits you the most:
Happy Lift™ (Revitalizing)
Happy Lift™ (Revitalizing) uses poly-L-lactic acid and caprolactone threads. When compared to PLA threads, these threads have more elasticity and lower plasticity, making them twice as strong.
Furthermore, Happy Lift™ (Revitalizing) has various uses, such as:
- Removes fine lines and wrinkles
- Creates an enhancement to the jawline
- Strengthens skin structure
- Lifts sagging eyebrows, cheeks, neck, and middle-lower face
- Smoothens nasolabial folds
- Improves the symmetry of uneven eyebrows
Ultra V Lift
Ultra V Lift employs fine threads like Polydioxanone (PDO), Polylactic acid (PLA) and Polycaprolactone (PCL) inserted beneath the skin to improve tissue structures. Over the course of 4 to 6 months, the skin tissues will produce more collagen, resulting in skin tightening effects.
MINT Lift – Full Face Lift
The Minimal Invasive Non-surgical Thread (MINT) Lift is a face threading technique that uses biodegradable Polydioxanone (PDO) sutures. Aside from that, the sutures used in MINT Lift employ 360-degree helical barbs that create strong lifting effects, allowing for smoother-looking complexions.
Mini MINT – Brow Lift & Forehead Lift
The Mini MINT – Brow & Forehead Lift uses the same technology as the MINT Lift – Full Face Lift. The difference is due to its ability to improve the brow and forehead areas by inserting Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. As a result, patients who undergo this type of face thread lift can achieve a firm and defined brow and forehead.
Youthful and refreshed-looking skin is in high demand as people realise the importance of good looks. If you’ve put aside plastic surgery and seeking ways to enhance your beauty in a natural manner, then a face thread lift could be the one for you.
