What is a Thread Lift?

As one ages, facial skin is the first place where aging signs start to appear. Aging can take a toll on the skin in various ways. The skin’s connective tissues thin out, collagen and elastin fibers start to break, and eventually one can notice different aging skin concerns such as deep folds or creases, fine lines, and wrinkles, dull skin, uneven skin texture and tone, and sagging skin. 

Thankfully, all these facial skin aging concerns can be taken care of with a minimally-invasive technique called a Thread lift. A thread lift is designed to help people regain a youthful facial contour, the best facial appearance at their age. It serves as the best, non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery. 

To get the benefits of thread lift treatment in Hyderabad, consult the skin expert at Neya Dermatology & Aesthetics Clinic. The clinic has helped many people achieve a youthful look with this minimally invasive, non-surgical anti-aging treatment.

Types of Thread Lifts

Threads lifts can be done with either of the following two types of threads:

Anchoring or lifting threads (Long threads)

Such threads have small barbs/cogs or cones along the length of the thread. When the experienced practitioner carefully places these threads below the skin surface using a needle, the skin tissues get lifted and secured in their place by these cones/barbs/cogs.

Stimulating threads (Short threads)

These are free-floating threads, which means not anchored underneath the skin at any point. Therefore, they severe multi purposes like they help restore skin’s volume and even enhancing overall skin texture and tone. At the same time, it helps boost collagen growth around the inserted threads to support and strengthen the skin. An example of this type is the PDO thread which is used extensively in thread lift procedure.

What Areas/Concerns can be Treated with Thread Lift Facial Contouring?

Thread lifting can help contour different areas of the face and neck, especially:

  • Jawline- to create a youthful jawline (an enviable jawline curve) and get rid of jowls
  • Mid-face and Cheeks- to restore the mid-face “triangle of youth”
  • Forehead and Eyebrows- to reposition the eyebrows and achieve an on-trend snatched appearance if eyebrows seem heavier and lower 
  • Neck- to tighten crepey neck skin and lift the sagging or aged neck tissues.   

How is Thread Facelift Performed?

The procedural steps of thread facelift are as follows:

  • Firstly, the skincare practitioner cleans the face and neck area thoroughly with gentle soap and water to make it free from dirt, grease, and any other cosmetic products. Once done, a numbing cream is applied which shows its effect in 30-40 minutes. As soon as the treatment site gets numbed, the topical anesthetic is wiped off. In the case of using anchoring threads, the entry and exit points will be numbed with the injectable local anesthetic. 
  • Next, the face is cleaned with iodine or chlorhexidine in two passes. The face may be then marked using a surgical pen as per the vectors needed to ensure optimal results.
  • Then, the chosen medical-grade threads are inserted into the marked sites of the candidate’s face using a technique called tunneling and accordingly adjusted while the candidate lies down comfortably. 
  • The candidate is then asked to sit to assess for symmetry, and then the face is again wiped with chlorohexidine. 
  • Lastly, the candidate is asked to expose their face for 30 minutes to an LED light, which is comforting and relaxing and can help reduce swelling, thereby speeding up recovery. 

On average, the time taken for placement of anchoring threads into the skin is about an hour depending upon various factors including the degree of facelift desired. In contrast, stimulating threads take about 10-20 minutes to be placed into the skin, depending upon the extent of the facelift desired. 

The cost of thread lift treatment can vary from patient to patient. To know more about the cost of thread lift treatment in Hyderabad, consult the skin expert at Neya Dermatology & Aesthetics Clinic.

The Results and Recovery after Thread Lift Facial Contouring

Following the thread lift, one can notice the immediate subtle lifting effect on the targeted areas of the face. There is a noticeable redistribution of facial volume along with the actual mechanical lift in the skin (if anchoring threads are used). The skin continues to show improvements over time as collagen remodeling takes place. The longevity of the results depends upon how much time the threads take to get dissolved. However, the new collagen continues to create a firmer, smoother, fuller appearance.

The candidates can expect to see some bruising, swelling, discomfort, and even puckering that can take up to 5 days to settle, if anchoring threads are used while floating threads need minimal downtime.

Who is best suited for thread lift facial contouring?

Generally, the candidates suitable for a thread lift are those who are in their 30s-40s and experiencing early signs of aging including sagging skin. Individuals who want mild to moderate facelifts and those who don’t have any severe aging signs like severe hanging or sagging skin, a turkey neck, or heavy jowls are good candidates for a thread lift. The approach is even ideal for those who are either seeing no good response after the use of injectable facial fillers or are not quite ready to undergo a surgical facelift. However, these candidates must not be aged below 18 years, must not be pregnant or lactating, and must not be suffering from any autoimmune disease. Lastly, it is important for every candidate considering a thread lift to be in good overall health and have a positive outlook as well as reasonable expectations from the results of their treatment.
