In the aesthetics industry, there is a vast range of treatments available which work to either correct, rejuvenate or simply improve the skin’s condition and health. Whether you’re undergoing a tummy tuck that drastically reduces sagging or excess stomach skin or you’re getting microblading done for those perfect brows, you need to know which treatment is most effective for your issue.
Please keep reading to learn more about the fantastic benefits of a thread lift when compared to surgical procedures. With thread lifts, you can achieve outstanding age-defying results without the high price tag or risks that come with surgery.
During a thread lift, a doctor will insert the threads into the dermis of your skin using a very fine needle. These threads hook onto the dermis of the skin, while the other end is attached at a higher point, creating a lifting effect. Once connected, these threads stay in place for up to six months before they fully dissolve and are flushed out naturally by the body.
As the threads cause pain-free trauma to the skin tissues after insertion, our body begins its natural healing process. In order to heal, new fibroblast cells alongside new collagen and elastin cells are stimulated to strengthen the wound and repair it.
A PDO Thread Lift provides ongoing rejuvenation of the facial tissues while collagen is ‘banked’. Banking collagen is a phrase given to the process of the new collagen cells being protected by fibroblasts and kept inside the tissues found under the skin for weeks onwards. This process allows the results of a thread to stay natural and outstanding for longer.
A lot of clients undergo a thread lift solely for its collagen stimulation abilities; this gradual improvement of the skin that continues post-procedure to leave the skin smooth, with improved tone and firmness. The Polydioxanone-based threads continuously activate this natural healing process until they fully dissolve after six months.
For lifting the skin, we recommend our MINT Super Thread Lift, a brilliant version of a PDO Thread Lift that’s patented modification of unique barbs can attach onto a more substantial portion of tissue, thus creating three-dimensional results.
A surgical facelift, on the other hand, dramatically lifts the skin by using a scalpel. During a facelift, a portion of skin on either side of the face is pulled back, and the tissues beneath the surface are surgically altered to return the contour of the face. Before the flaps of skin are stitched back up, any unwanted excess skin is removed. Although a thread lift is designed to reposition the fat deposits found under the surface of the skin, its nature is to trigger a natural cycle that is undergone numerously during our lifetimes.
A surgical procedure comes with downtime and risks, and these could be and are not limited to fluid accumulation, bleeding, infection, nerve injury and hair loss. However, a thread lift has next to no side effects, and most clients return to their daily activities the same day.
Not to mention, the results of a surgical thread lift can be perceived as unnatural and obvious. Many patients, as you will know through various ‘Botched Body’ programmes and articles have been left with a very tight appearance of the skin – even dampening the abilities of facial expressions.
On the other hand, with a thread lift, you are left with natural results that subtly but effectively lift the skin while promoting collagen renewal, giving the client firm, glowing and youthful skin. Client’s facial expressions aren’t affected, nor is it evident to the naked eye that extreme work has been done.
When people look for treatments to lift their face, they often turn to Botox. While Botox is a way for correcting fine lines and wrinkles and smoothing out the skin, the results are no way near as natural as those gained by a thread lift. Botox can give the face a too plump, fake appearance, even affecting facial expressions and make a client look ‘overdone’.
If you want to rejuvenate the skin while retaining a natural appearance, then we recommend Collagen Threads. This lifting treatment solely focuses on collagenesis (collagen renewal) through the insertion of un-barbed, smooth threads which correct fine lines and wrinkles. Their collagen renewal allows the fine lines to be filled naturally, leaving smooth skin that is pumped by a protein giving an extra natural look.
Hyaluronic Acid also plays a major part in the healing of the treated area. Hyaluronic Acid is already found in our bodies, making it also 100% natural. Through these natural elements that trigger the body’s natural healing process, a thread lift’s results are visible but aren’t instantly obvious. A thread lift works over several months to achieve optimum results. Therefore, these gradual changes already create a natural illusion.
We hope that we have given you an insight into the natural results of a thread lift. Because of its nature and properties, these rejuvenating treatments are able to turn back the clock on one’s skin, without the added risks and look of cosmetic surgeries.
