If you are struggling with the noticeable signs of aging, including sagging facial skin, you may feel as though you have no solutions available outside of a surgical facelift. Thanks to continued advances in the field of medical aesthetics, you have other options to consider when visiting Skintology MedSpa of New York, NY. Dr. Jennifer Walden and her team may encourage you to consider the benefits of the thread lift treatment readily available at her facility.
What Is a Thread Lift?
Thread lifts are a type of cosmetic procedure that can be used to address issues related to skin laxity, sagging, and wrinkles. The process is minimally invasive and involves the use of special absorbable threads (often made out of polydioxanone), which are inserted directly under the surface of the skin with tiny needles. These threads help provide an immediate lifting effect by tightening the skin and stimulating collagen production in order to create a more youthful appearance.
What Are the Advantages of the Thread Lift Procedure?
Thread lifts typically require minimal downtime and have few side effects when performed correctly by an experienced medical professional. They are also much less expensive than other cosmetic procedures, such as facelifts or brow lifts, making it an attractive alternative for those looking for quick results without breaking the bank. While long-lasting, they are not permanent, so future treatment may be needed to maintain the desired changes.
Is the Thread Lift Procedure Painful?
Our providers use local anesthetics on the skin before inserting the threads, ensuring that the process from start to finish is comfortable. As the anesthetic wears off hours after the appointment, you may have mild discomfort that can last a day or two but is easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication if necessary.
