Minimally Invasive face and body lift

Thread lift is a procedure where loose is tightened by temporarily suspending in place with anchoring sutures.  It requires making tiny little incisions and inserting self absorbing or dissolving sutures at appropriate angles to lift loose skin.  As the threads slowly dissolve overtime, the suture reabsorption process stimulates the area to produce more collagen and overtime, increasing firmness, overall tone and texture of the treated area.  It is helpful for those with moderate degree of skin laxity who do not want or are not ready for surgery. Thread lifts have little down time and produce quicker results. There are different types of threads; Mono threads, Cog threads and Screw threads.  Nova, Mint and Miracu are brand names in the industry.

What are the risks of doing a thread lift?

In general complications from thread lift are uncommon as it is a low risk procedure.  There is a possibility of bruising, pain or discomfort in treated area, erosion of the skin exposing the tread and infection, nerve trauma, and immune reaction such as granuloma formation.

How long do the effects of thread lift last?

The lift produced by PDO and other threads can last about 12 months.  When paired with other collagen inducing treatments to augment remodeling of the tissue treated.

What to avoid prior to getting thread lift

It is best to avoid medications that have the effect of thinning the blood such as Vitamin C, E, Omega 3 fatty acids or fish oil and certain herbs such as Ginkgo Biloba.  Ice and Arnica tablets may help minimize swelling associated with the procedure.
