Face lift surgery are among the preferred procedures especially after a certain age. Over time and due to various factors, loosening, sagging and deep wrinkles may occur in our skin, which becomes difficult to resist gravity. With each passing day, it is becoming much easier to erase these corrosive effects of time from our face. One of the latest methods in this regard is the non-surgical skin lift method with Thread Lift.
A thread lift is a minimally non-surgical procedure that involves the use of special threads (usually made of biodegradable materials such as PDO or PLLA to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face or neck. During the procedure, these threads are placed under the skin using small incisions.
The threads have tiny barbs that anchor the skin and provide an immediate lifting effect. Over time, the threads stimulate collagen production, further improving the results. Thread lift is more invasive than French lift and provides longer lasting results.
Thread Lift and French Thread Lift are different process. In the Thread Lift process, thread that can dissolve in the body are used, while in the French Thread Lift, multi-layered ropes covered with polyester inside and silicone material outside, with a 20% stretch margin are used.
It can be applied to the following parts in the face area;
In the body area;
After the process area is cleaned, local anesthesia is provided by applying anesthetic cream. The purpose of local anesthesia is for the patient to feel comfortable and relaxed during the procedure and not to feel pain. The threads are placed under the skin by entering the attachment area (although it varies according to the process area, it is usually the area above the ear in facial process).
It is a short-term procedure that is completed between 45-60 minutes on average.
It starts to show its effects immediately after the procedure, and the targeted effects are achieved after an average of 6 weeks. It will be observed that the side effects of the process such as edema and slight pitting will regress spontaneously after 5-7 days.
The effects obtained after Thread lift have a permanence of 2 years.
These threads are made of biodegradable and absorbable materials such as polydioxanone (PDO) or polylactic acid (PLA).
The threads used in the procedure dissolve under the skin between 10-12 weeks following the process. The dissolution of the threads by adapting to human tissue provides collagen activation and improves skin quality at the right rate.
It is a procedure that can be applied to almost everyone with sagging on the face or certain body parts. It is effectively preferred in mid-face and neck sagging. In complaints such as low eyebrows, eyebrow lift is possible with Thread Lift.
There are always some risks in procedures that are not competent in their work, without providing the necessary hygienic conditions and using poor quality materials.
