LESSER KNOWN FACTS ABOUT THREAD LIFTS

  • Thread lifts are minimally invasive and help in enhancing the shape and contour of your face without surgery.
  • Thread lift procedures are ideal for those wanting to look younger and change their appearance significantly.
HOW IS A THREAD LIFT DIFFERENT FROM A FACELIFT?

Surgical facelifts can in no way be compared to thread lifts. Where a surgical facelift is the ultimate form of a facelift with nothing on par with it, thread lifts are ideal for minimal lifts without the need for surgery. A thread lift procedure is often done in the earlier stages of aging where one can prevent the need for a surgical lift.

Neither works as a replacement to the other. Both these treatments are recommended in highly different cases.

While minimally invasive, a threading lift is effective as long as it is carried out as an anti-ageing measure at the earliest.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT A THREAD LIFTING CONSULTATION?

At Cosmetic Skin Doctors, we believe in offering in-depth consultations to help our patrons understand the procedure in and out and the outcome that can be expected from each treatment.

Every consultation at our clinic involves our practitioners conducting a detailed analysis of your skin type, existing skin conditions, your expectations from the treatment, and the possible treatments that can give you the outcome you desire. By giving your every information related to a thread lifting procedure, we help you make an informed decision and prepare you better for the treatment.

The consultation will not only cover the treatment options and the procedures for each treatment but also the cost, the number of sessions you will require, and other related details. The doctor will also take a few before and after thread lift pictures for comparison.

You can also have your doubts resolved and your queries regarding the treatments answered during a consultation so that you are more aware of how the treatment can help you and, in turn, lay your concerns to rest.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH A THREAD LIFT?

More often than not, thread lift procedures are opted by patients to be done on the face. As part of facial thread lifts, people choose an eye thread lift, a double chin thread lift, a cheek thread lift or even thread lift for jowls.

However, facial thread lifts are not the only popular thread lifting procedures. There are also people who opt for a neck thread lift or for thread lifting procedures on their bodies apart from their faces.

Body thread lifts require thinner threads and focus more on stimulating the production of collagen rather than lifting in order to tighten the skin.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR A THREAD LIFT?
  • People looking for minimally invasive lifting without having to undergo surgery, irrespective of their gender.
  • People who wish to enhance their facial contours and shape.
  • People who need a jowl lift, cheek lift, and eye lift.
  • People who wish to improve their marionette lines or nasolabial folds.
  • People who wish to look younger and have significant changes made to their face without undergoing surgery.
The Benefits of a Thread Lift at Cosmetic Skin Doctors?

Thread lifts have become a sought-after treatment among individuals who want to give their features a notable lift. The treatment offers quick results and involves safe practices that eliminate chances of risks. While not as prominent as a surgical outcome, non-surgical thread lifting can significantly improve your appearance and make you look years younger. Some of the benefits of the treatment include:

  • Minimal risks involved due to the procedure being non-surgical.
  • Immediate results that appear natural.
  • Prominent lift to sagging skin.
  • Affordability of the treatment, as compared to surgical alternatives.
  • Stimulation of collagen production.
  • Versatility of the procedure, being ideal for the neck, jawline, cheeks, nose, brows, and more.
  • Use of safe, absorbable threads that are metabolised by the body over time.
  • Reversibility of the procedure to restore your appearance back to your natural look.
  • Procedure requiring less than an hour to complete, with minimal downtime involved.
Aftercare Following a Thread Lift Procedure

At Cosmetic Skin Doctors, our team of aestheticians carry out thread lift procedures with exceptional care to minimise risks. However, you may notice certain side effects that subside over time. Here are some aftercare tips to minimise these side effects and reduce the possibilities of further complications while you recover:

  • Steer clear of rigorous activities for a week following the procedure.
  • Keep facial muscle movement, including talking, to a minimum while you heal.
  • Avoid sleeping on your front for a week of two.
  • Consume liquids or soft foods to avoid the action of chewing for a week following your procedure; specifically, avoid hard to chew foods so that your muscle movement is contained.
  • Avoid dental treatments or massages around the treated area to keep the threads from moving out of place.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME AFTER A THREAD LIFT?

One of the best parts of a thread lift is that there is no downtime. You can walk in for the procedure and walk out once done without hassle. You can also get back to work the same day or the next day if you wish to.

However, certain activities must be restricted as a precaution. Make sure you avoid anything strenuous such as swimming or exercising for a few days after the procedure. You must also avoid applying makeup for about 24 hours after the procedure.

WHAT IS THE COST OF A THREAD LIFTING PROCEDURE IN MELBOURNE?

The current condition of your skin laxity and other such factors play a vital role in determining the amount of threads to be used. This, and the type of procedure you choose, affects the thread lifting cost in Melbourne. Relaying your requirements during the consultation and figuring out the type of procedure most suitable for you will give you a better understanding of the cost of treatment in your case.

Your doctor can help you with an approximate estimate or explain the complete cost of the procedure to you once you finalise the type of procedure and areas to be covered.

WHY OPT FOR CSD CLINICS?

By booking a consultation, you can better understand the possible thread lifting options for you.

WHAT IS A THREAD LIFT?

A thread lift in Melbourne is a popular, minimally invasive procedure for men and women, which is a convenient, non-surgical alternative to a surgical facelift procedure or neck lift, without the significant cost and downtime of surgery. PDO threads are placed under the skin to reposition the skin in a higher or lifted placement to give your face and/or neck a refreshed, rejuvenated look of younger, tighter looking skin.

One of the major benefits of a thread lift over an invasive surgery procedure is that a thread lift is non surgical and designed to complement the natural contours of the face, leaving a more natural, refreshed look. This is opposed to surgery which aims to reshape or distort the facial features, often resulting in a different look. If you are looking for a more natural looking outcome that still looks like your face, a thread lift is potentially for you.

The suture material or threads are specially designed to dissolve over time with typical results lasting 12-18 months, therefore there is no need to have them removed.

WHAT OTHER TREATMENTS CAN YOU COMBINE WITH A THREAD LIFT?

At CSD Clinics our aim is to give you the best outcome for your face or body. When you book a free consultation with us, we will talk to you about the best treatment or treatments that will give you the most effective and natural looking result with better skin quality. This could come from a combination of treatments like anti wrinkle injections or dermal lip fillers or laser treatments along with a non-surgical thread lift procedure. The medical team at CSD can also talk to you about additional face treatments and skin treatments to increase collagen production to further increase your skin quality.

THREAD LIFT PROCEDURES FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia; takes less than 90 minutes, no skin cutting or stitching, limited downtime and very natural and long-lasting and best results.

WHAT TYPE OF THREADS DO YOU USE?

CSD clinics have performed over 1,000 thread lifts using PDO threads. There are many other threads on the market like silhouette soft, mint threads and so on. However, our doctors have had the best results with extremely low side effects using PDO threads for thread lifts.

WHAT IF I HAVE ALREADY HAD A FACE LIFT?

Thread lifts (sometimes called a suture lift or stitch lift) can be performed on someone who has had a previous surgery, to touch up any sagging skin or droopy areas.

ARE THERE VISIBLE SCARS WITH THIS PROCEDURE?

Because only small punctures are made in your skin, and no skin is removed, there is usually no visible scarring.

IS THE THREAD LIFT PAINFUL?

During the thread lift there should be no pain as local anaesthesia is used. After the procedure there may be some pain behind the ears, so painkillers should be used. This usually settles after 24 hours.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

You may be a little swollen after the procedure especially on the outer cheeks. Bruising may occur in some people, but not in most cases. Swelling in most people is mild and usually lasts about 10 days.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Threads will last 12-18 months and dissolve over this time.

IS THIS LIKE A FACE LIFT?

The thread lift treatment is not like a facelift as it does not involve cutting and removing skin, and is not a substitute for that surgical procedure. The procedure is often useful for patients who have previously had a facelift, but have a few residual loose areas of sagging skin or droopy areas – it can tidy up these areas. The thread lift procedure is also useful for younger patients who are not ready for face lift surgery, or for those who do not want the scars which may result from surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

DO THREAD LIFTS REALLY WORK?

Study shows that thread lifts improve the facial structure by giving the soft tissues in the face a notable lift. The success rate of the procedure is also as high as 90%. While not as prominent as a surgical lift, PDO thread lifts do offer a significant improvement.

WHAT IS A THREAD LIFT COST?

The cost of a thread lift varies depending on the area being treated and the extent of treatment required. A consultation at our clinic can help us assess your requirements and provide an approximate cost of treatment.

WHAT IS BETTER THREAD LIFT OR FILLERS?

Thread lifts and fillers both offer varying benefits, making them both ideal depending on the outcome you desire. While thread lifts are a great way to give your skin a lift and reduce the appearance of age lines, fillers are a better option if you wish to add volume to your face.

HOW MANY SESSIONS OF THREAD LIFT?

The number of sessions required for each individual differs based on a number of factors like the severity or extent of skin laxity, skin thickness, the results you desire, the areas to be covered, and the number of threads being used. A consultation will help determine how many sessions you may require based on your current condition and the outcome you are looking for.

CAN THREAD LIFTS BE REMOVED?

Thread lifts, once carried out, cannot be reversed without an incision to surgically remove it. However, thread lifts are temporary and will lose their effect over time once they dissolve.

WHICH THREAD LIFT LASTS THE LONGEST?

While some threads used in a thread lift dissolve within 18 months, there are some that can last as long as 2-3 years. Depending on your budget and requirement, we can help you choose the right one.

WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF THREADING?

Thread lifts are a relatively safe procedure with more pros than cons. Here are some to help you make your decision –

Pros of a thread lift

  • Thread lifts provide an instant lift.
  • Thread lifts can help contour parts of the face and neck without surgical intervention.
  • Thread lifts stimulate the production of collagen, improving the effects on your skin over time.
  • Thread lifts are more affordable than surgical lifts.

Cons of a thread lift

  • Not every area of the face can be lifted using thread lifts.
  • The results are not as prominent as a surgical face lift.
  • Thread lifts are temporary.
