Thread Lift - A Non-Surgical Lift

You will be happy to know that in this modern era, facelift is not confined to surgery. Face lifting can be achieved via surgery, injectables and thread. While injectable facelift has been discussed before, we would like to concentrate on thread lift.

This technique is actually not new but constant refinement to the technique is being carried out to enable the effect of the lift to be better and longer lasting.  The procedure is carried out in an outpatient basis. After the consult, numbing cream is applied onto the face to minimize discomfort. Fine thread is then introduced in an aseptic technique to suspend the supporting tissue on the face. As the thread used is fine and self-absorbable, they do not need to be removed. Depending on the condition of the patient, this procedure generates high satisfaction amongst its users and the down time is minimal. The procedure takes 30-60 minutes to complete and the patient can go back to work immediately after the procedure.

Thread lift is an option to patients who wish to have a facelift without undergoing surgery. Like many other non-invasive procedures, it can be performed on an outpatient basis and the downtime is minimal. It is no wonder that it is one of the most popular facelift currently.
