Thread lifting is a safe and effective way of lifting and rejuvenating sagging skin on the face or other body parts. It is an innovative facial rejuvenation procedure designed to gently elevate sagging brows, cheeks, jowls and other areas. Due to the unique design of the threads, they act to hold the the skin in place without the need for visible scars.
A thread is inserted in to the skin and it causes a rejuvenating and lifting effect seen best after between 6 to 8 weeks. The thread can stay up to 8 months under the skin and results may last up to 18 months. It can also be used to lift loose skin around the stomach. Thread lifting is done under local anaesthesia with no cuts/incisions on the skin. At Allure Laser, Skin and Aesthetic Medicine Centre, we use the Silhoutte Soft, one of the best products worldwide for thread lifting.
Thread lifting refers to a procedure in which is mainly carried out with the objective of tackling the folds and sags found on different parts of the body including the face. Having gained acknowledgement as a solution for men and women that also bypass the healing duration and commitment required for an effective face lift, the procedure entails the placing of fine threats in the patient’s skin (Kang, Byun & Kim, 2017). The procedure is preferred by many individuals as it enables the tackling of folds and sags in various areas of the faces that might not be reached by other notable procedures.
