The thread lift is gaining momentum with consumers. It is an alternative for more invasive, surgical procedures, which is why it has become known as the non-surgical facelift. While a facelift is typically seen to be a more extreme options with better results, a thread lift is better suited for those that need only subtle improvements. However, don’t underestimate the versatility of the non-surgical facelift; it could be all you need to look like your younger self.

What Is a Thread Lift?

This procedure, as previously mentioned, is a great alternative for the face lift. Instead of surgical incisions being made on the face, small sutures are used to lift and tighten the face. A thread lift is efficient at reducing wrinkles and fine lines.

Threads, also known as sutures, are used to tighten the face during the procedure. The body will eventually create new skin cells around the lifted area, producing a younger, more elegant look.

The results from the non-surgical facelift are natural-looking, meaning no one will be able to tell that you had work done. The results from the procedure are immediate, so you won’t have to wait months and months to see your rejuvenated face. We recommend multiple treatments for the best results, but everyone’s face reacts differently. The threads usually take a few months to dissolve, at which point you can have the procedure repeated. Results generally last up to 18 months, but individual results do vary. Once your skin has produced new cells, no one will know you ever had the procedure done.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

While thread lifts don’t offer better results for everyone, they are a better option for younger people. People who do not require extreme amount of work may be great candidates for a thread lift. It is true that more can be done with a standard facelift, but why have such an invasive procedure performed if you don’t need it? Sometimes all you need to look younger and healthier is a simple non-surgical facelift. Typically, those under 40 are best suited for a thread lift; older people, especially those over 50, may better benefit from a traditional facelift.
