Everything falls with gravity. Over time, our faces also sag as we age. The cheeks are usually the first to droop. Then eyebrows, neck, and forehead. Due to these, an old, listless, sad countenance appears. However, while methods that rely on injectable compounds and skin resurfacing prior to cosmetic surgery are absolutely necessary for many patients, not everyone is willing or able to have the procedure. If you’re part of this group, you’ll be happy to know that a new type of procedure has been developed to fill the gap between non-invasive facial rejuvenation and cosmetic surgery – a thread lift, also known as Face lifting treatment.
A thread lift also known as face lifting treatment is a cosmetic procedure that offers a minimally invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. Thread lifts claim to tighten your skin by inserting a medical-grade wire into your face, then “pulling” your skin by tightening the thread. It aims to lift and sculpt the shape of your face. This treatment is suitable for those who can’t have a surgical facelift because of medical conditions. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly, lifting and tightening the face. Once under your skin, the threads will tighten and shape your face, essentially lifting the skin in certain areas. It stays here for several months, helping to synthesize collagen in the treated area. After natural absorption, the effects of collagen production and skin firming last. In addition to being ideal for skin lifting, threads also fight aging in another way, by stimulating the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large amounts of collagen to the treated area. This is important because collagen plays a vital role in the aging process.
Here are some of the benefits of taking the Face lifting treatment:
Thread lifting is for almost everyone, it is suitable for people of any race and gender. This face lifting treatment is suitable for those who cannot undergo surgical face lifting due to medical conditions. But if you’re terrified of needles, this may not be for you, although our experts will do everything to ensure the procedure is as calm and relaxing as possible. In general, most candidates have confidence issues due to signs of aging on their faces. If you have wrinkles or the skin around your face seems too saggy, you might be a good candidate for face lifting treatment.
You may be wondering first, if this face lifting treatment is worth it, and second, how long your results will last. This face lifting treatment is very effective as it provides immediate and long-lasting results. The initial treatment will lift and support your skin, an effect you will notice immediately after treatment. The face lifting treatment will also initiate some long-term results, such as collagen production. These results appear over time, so once you leave your appointment, you can rest assured that your results will continue to improve over time. Within 6 to 8 months, you will experience the final results. Results do vary from patient to patient, but most enjoy results that last 18 months or more.
