If you’d like to refresh your appearance and lift and tighten your skin without going under the knife, threads can give you a facelift without surgery. Threads are an effective anti-aging treatment, as they can reduce the appearance of sagging cheeks and folds. But how do beauty threads work.
What are beauty threads?
Beauty threads are dissolvable sutures that are used to tighten the skin. Threads are typically made of Polydioxanone (PDO) which is an absorbable suture that is commonly used in medical devices. Threads are typically used to rejuvenate the face and neck, but canbe inserted anywhere on the body to treat skin laxity. There are many different types of PDO threads, including the popular NovaThreads.
How do beauty threads work?
The threads are placed in selected areas below the skin and provide the structural support needed to lift areas that are starting to sag, such as the lower cheeks, jawline, and neck.
In addition to anchoring the skin, threads also trigger cellular renewal, as they stimulate the production of new collagen giving the face a gentle lift, and gradually tightening the skin. The threads are absorbed about 6 months after the procedure.
The thread lift is an in-office treatment that is performed under local anesthesia, and is virtually painless. The procedure takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.Results of a thread lift lasts anywhere from 9-12 months (learn more).
Beauty threads are an excellent option for men and women with moderate skin laxity.
