Thread Lifts and Collagen Induction
- PDO threads are made from Polydioxanone, lasts 9-24 months.
- Aptos threads are made from P(LA/CL) with or without HA. Lasting 24 months and longer.
- Gold threads; PDO threads coated with 24-carat gold for rejuvenating effects.
The benefits of THREAD LIFT
This non-surgical alternative is growing in popularity. Specialized threads are inserted and attached into the deeper tissues of the skin and, when positioned properly, create a firming and tightening effect. An very sought-after benefit of threads is the formation of collagen. Compared to surgical face lifting, thread lifting involves far less trauma. There are no visible scars. No skin is cut away.
The procedure is quick (20 to 40 minutes depending on how many threads you are having inserted) and has a very low risk of infection. The initial results are seen immediately, and results continue to improve, as the collagen and elastin form and mature. Thread lifting can last anywhere from 18 to 24 months, but some people report effects for even longer.
How does it feel?
A local anaesthetic is first gently injected to make sure you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. Following that, you’ll feel a light tugging on the skin. After the procedure, you may have some mild bruising and swelling for two to three days which ice packs will take care of.
The goal is not only lifting of sagging skin but also a regenerative process that leads to the production of a patient’s own collagen, which rejuvenates the skin. The threads generally have a skin-supporting, tightening and brightening function.
