If you have excess skin and are considering a facelift, but don’t like the recovery time, then Pristine Med Spa in Ridgecrest, CA has a solution for you. While skin treatments like chemical and laser treatments can’t offer a solution for excess skin, a thread lift can: and it provides long-term results lasting up to two years.
What Is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a minimally invasive non-surgical facelift that results in a natural lift in the skin. Unlike a facelift where the loose, sagging skin is removed, the surgeon lifts it by stitching it. The process stimulates the body’s healing response, which stimulates the production of elastin, hyaluronic acid, and new collagen. This facial rejuvenation procedure is known as a PDO thread lift because the treatment process is done by using polydioxanone (PDO) thread to tighten and pull excess skin.
What Areas Can You Treat?
The combination of the process and your body’s natural response to it lead to amazing results. You can use the thread lift to:
- Lift eyebrows
- Reduce crow’s feet wrinkles
- Reduce lines and bags from the under-eye area
- Lift cheeks
- Reduce nasolabial lines
- Reduce marionette folds & fine lines from the lower facial region
- Slim the jawline
- Reduce and tighten under chin
- Smooth out necklines
What Are the Benefits?
A typical facelift requires surgery, sedation, around the clock care for at least three days, and around one or two weeks off from work. With thread lifting, you have minimal downtime. Other benefits include the following:
- Less risk due to local anesthesia
- Most can return to work after the procedure
- Minimized need for strong pain meds
- Low risk of scarring or complications
- Long-term results
What Results Can I Expect?
You will notice an immediate improvement in your skin from the lifting technique used during treatment. In about 10 to 14 days, when your body’s healing mechanism kicks into high gear, you will notice a continued improvement in your skin’s tone and texture, peaking around six months.
Is It Safe?
This FDA-approved treatment comes with minimal risks. The thread itself is biodegradable and dissolves within 12 weeks. You do not have to worry about the risks associated with anesthesia or major surgery.
How Long Does It Last?
Though the effects of the treatment peaks around six months post-treatment, the results lasts eight months to two years.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You are a candidate for the treatment if you have moderate signs of aging, such as loose skin, lines, and wrinkles, and if you have realistic expectations about your results. During your consultation, we will review your medical history. Your health and safety is our highest priority.
