Maybe you are not ready for surgery, maybe you wish to have a fast result with very little downtime. Then thread lifting is your choice.
The method involves the insertion of resorbable threads under the skin of face and neck. On average you will require about three threads for the cheeks and two threads for the neck. An anaesthetic ointment is applied to the areas to be treated. After cleaning and draping needles containing resorbable threads are inserted into the skin and then directly under it, following the direction of the lift desired. After positioning of the threads the needles are removed. A typical region to treat is the cheek, another good target is the neck. The whole procedure takes less than half an hour. The result is immediately visible. There can be some bruising and swelling, which tends to resolve within days. The threads are being resorbed over time. The effect typically lasts about 6 months to maximally 1 year.
The method is quick, safe and has very little downtime. Its effect lasts 6 to 12 months.
