Face Lifting : Beat Your Age

A surgical facelift is no longer the only option for lifting and contouring a face. A non-surgical facelift is used to lift the sagging skin on the face and also neck using surgical suture threads.

The benefit of a thread lift is the absence of conspicuous scars and the short downtime from daily activities. Thread lift helps to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. A thread lift is performed within one hour.

What Thread lifting can do?

Thread lifts can be a great way to rejuvenate and regain youthful contours to areas such as the brows, cheeks, jowls and the neck area. They can also be used to give youthful tone to areas on the body such as the breasts, buttocks and upper arms, places are more vulnerable to sagging and loss of volume due to weight loss, poor muscle tone, or the aging process.

The Benefits of A Thread Lift include shaping and lifting and can give impressive results that last from 18 months up to 5 years, depending on the type of thread used. Thread lifts are a good option for those aged 30 to 60 years, for whom gentle sagging may be apparent, but collagens deposits are still enough for regeneration. Younger patients who want to improve their facial contours or those with facial asymmetry may also consider this treatment.

How Thread Lifting is performed?

In this threads are used for lifting sagging eyebrows along with those eyelids, cheeks, Nasal Flare, lips, Jowls, Neckline, and deep Nasolabial folds are also lifted. While techniques vary according to a patient's specific needs, the doctor's training, and the type of threads used, thread lifting generally involves the use of a thread that is infused under the skin in a way that helps the skin be lifted.

Before a thread is inserted, markings are made to determine the proper point of entry, directional vectors and exit point. Based on the type of thread (single direction or bi-directional, for example) the entry and exit points will vary.

You might be a candidate for thread lift, if:
  • Aged between 35 and 45 years.
  • Have a prominent jaw, a minimally sagging mid-facial appearance
  • Bags under the eyes or on the neck.
A full facelift involves 18 APTOS threads and the threads needed per region would usually be 2 for each brow, 3 for each cheek, 2 for each jaw line, and 2 for each side of the neck which amounts to 18 threads.

The results are immediately visible and go on to improve in the next 2 months as collagen remodeling takes effect. The threads are invisible, although can sometimes be palpated (felt with the fingers) in certain areas. Some patients feel minimal discomfort such as a sensation while chewing or smiling or slight ache, but this fades within the first week. Slight dimpling, bruising, and swelling are normal within the first few days, but improve readily as the sutures are absorbed. The incisions made for the entry and exit points are tiny and heal without unsightly stitches.

Dr.Rekha’s Skin and Slim Centre provides all the advanced treatment and procedure with the help of Leading Skin Specialist and other staff.
