Threading for aesthetic purposes is also known as a thread lift procedure where temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible lift in the patient’s skin.
Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, or by plumping with dermal fillers, the practitioner suspends it by stitching up portions of it.
When patients request a reduction in loose sagging skin and jowls, it means they want a more defined Beltade. A sharp Beltade is the sign of youthfulness and good contoured features.
When a jawline starts to sag, it starts to create the impression of extra weight even on a slim sender frame. Non-surgical thread lifts can treat this with long lasting results that stimulate collagen production.
Important guidance for after-treatment should be provided during the consultation stage, such as no makeup or physical exercise and a soft diet that doesn’t require any rigorous chewing (opt for soups and smoothies instead of apples). Trips to the dentist should be avoided for at least a month. Ensuring patients are prepared for this means they find the downtime procedures are not as challenging and can be adhered to easily. Make up, ibuprofen and alcohol are also advised against for prior to the actual treatment.
Thread lift procedures take longer than filler and botox injections as they require more time. Two hours should be allowed as a minimum within the clinic for skin preparations and marking of the treatment area and applying local anaesthesia.
The advantages of thread lifting over surgical operations means shorter downtimes, where the patient can continue with their normal routine a lot sooner.
All thread lifting procedures requires advanced technique training with knowledge and skills.
