Face Lifting with Threads
As we age, our skin begins to sag and lose its elasticity. This is due, in part, to the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. While standard facelifts can help to tighten the skin, they are often invasive and require significant recovery time. In recent years, a new type of facelift has emerged that uses mono- and cog threads to lift the skin. Unlike traditional facelifts, this approach is minimally invasive and can be performed in a doctor's OPD chamber.
Facial thread lifting is the latest trend in the cosmetic surgery world. This relatively new procedure uses mono or cog threads to lift and tighten the skin on the face. The procedure can be done with local anaesthetic medicine and takes around an hour, with results that last for around one to two years. As the procedure is minimally invasive, there is very little downtime required afterwards, and patients are able to return to their normal activities almost immediately.
Threads are inserted into the skin in order to lift it. A thread consists of a tiny cord that is made of biocompatible materials. Over time, collagen production is stimulated as the threads help to attract collagen-producing cells to the area. This stimulates new collagen production and results in a more youthful appearance.
The popularity of thread lifts is due to the minimal downtime and short recovery time as well as the lack of scars. Most people return to their normal activities within a day or two. There is usually minimal swelling, which resolves in a few days. Bruising is also uncommon and typically resolves within 7-10 days.
