One of the first signs of aging in sagging in the jowls and neck. The conventional facelift and other facial lift procedures require surgery to lift and tighten the skin and tissues. For early stages of sagging in the face, there are non-surgical options for lifting the skin for a more youthful facial appearance. At Timeless MedSpa NYC, we offer a thread facelift that can be performed in a quick office visit with minimal recovery required.
A thread facelift uses dissolvable sutures that are placed under the skin to lift and tighten the skin. The thread lift procedure works in two ways – it mechanically lifts the skin and stimulates collagen to firm the skin. A thread facelift can elevate and tighten the typical areas a traditional facelift targets – the jowls and upper neck. Thread lifts can also be used to lift the eyebrows and midface.
To perform the thread facelift, the skin is numbed with a local anesthesia. The threads are inserted with a needle under the skin and secured in place to provide the lifting affect. There are no incisions and no scarring, so the procedure is very discreet. After the procedure, there may be some swelling, bruising and discomfort, but these effects dissipate in a few days.
Non-Surgical Threading Lift
Often called a “lunchtime facelift,” the thread facelift is a wonderful option for men and women who are beginning to experience sagging jowls or neck skin. Threading lift procedures can also be used for elevating drooping eyebrows, restoring a youthful eyebrow arch. The procedure is minimally-invasive with little to no pain or recovery time needed.
The results of the thread facelift come in stages. There will be an improvement immediately with the mechanical lifting of the skin, but the final results may take up to three weeks or longer to be apparent. The stimulation of collagen produces a healing response that can provide additional tightening and firming of the face for a lifted, youthful appearance.
If you want a minimally-invasive procedure to tighten and lift sagging jowls or neck skin, a thread facelift may be the solution. To learn more about a threading facelift and other anti-aging treatments we offer, contact Timeless MedSpa NYC to schedule an aesthetic consultation.
