Facial threads are the latest innovation in anti-aging treatments.
The procedure is often described as a non-surgical facelift or even a threadlift because it involves no surgical intervention, so clients require no downtime afterwards.
The normal skin aging process progresses with the formation of fine lines and wrinkles as elastic and collagen tissues in the epidermis become degraded. A loss of definition in the facial area is usually caused by skin laxity, where the elastin and collagen fibres break down and cause the skin to become less elastic. In turn, fat pads from the cheek area start to sag under the natural effect of gravity.
Repeated facial expressions can also cause folds over which the looser skin can fall. The loss of the skin’s usual elasticity leads to things like a narrower forehead and temple area, and a wider, heavier jawline.
The threads used in the facial threading procedure can either be permanent or dissolve within two years. Whether permanent or temporary, the threads leave lasting results because they are bio-stimulants. This means that they stimulate your skin’s own collagen production wherever they are placed, which also helps to create the fresh and healthful appearance that is the hallmark of a threadlift.
Facial Threading Procedure
The facial threading procedure has been carefully designed to treat the early signs of aging, using non-invasive techniques that give subtle and effective results. The procedure can be performed in merely one or two hours, and often without anaesthesia.
During facial threading, the doctor inserts thin threads into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads contain tiny barbs that attach to the skin tissue, and when the threads are pulled back, these barbs pull the skin back as well, lifting and smoothing the face.
The treated areas will be raised slightly, which eliminates sagging and gives patients a rejuvenated appearance. And because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can approve the look of their thread lift while the doctor works. Once the procedure is complete the threads are knotted and become hidden within the skin itself, ensuring that any resulting scarring will be virtually invisible.
