Thread lifts offer one of the most innovative ways for dermatologists to offer skin lifting procedures for the face, neck and body, that offer amazingly quick recovery times, virtually no scarring, and one of the most cost-effective cosmetic procedures on the market.
How Do Thread Lifts Work?
Soft threading, the product used by Fourways Aesthetic Centre to complete thread lift procedures, is made up of resorbing, bidirectional cones that are inserted into small incisions in the skin, just above the hairline, and are used to hold skin in place. Since these materials are made up by lactic acid and glycolic copolymer, they are absorbed back into the body within 2 years, and leave no visible scarring.
This allows for doctors to redefine the focused area of damaged, sagging or prematurely ageing skin by compressing the tissue and lifting the skin using the thread’s bidirectional cones. As it is resorbed into the body, the polylactic acids in the threads promote fibroblast activation and collagen production to restore texture and shape to the skin.
Since thread lifts are inserted into the skin through minor cuts in the skin, they are far less invasive than traditional surgical procedures. This means that patients can enjoy a much quicker recovery time and virtually no visible scarring, alongside the results of healthy, radiant and smooth skin.
Who Benefits from Thread Lifts?
Those individuals between the ages of 30 and 60 who show signs of skin damage and premature ageing would stand to benefit from a thread lift procedure. However, they are best suited to those with only mildly aged skin. For the more severe cases, more intensive procedures may be warranted.
