Thread lifts are a popular anti-aging treatment that can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. But how long do thread lifts last? Generally, thread lifts can last between 12 and 18 months, depending on the individual patient's age, lifestyle, skin type, and how quickly their body breaks down the sutures. The procedure itself delivers immediate results, but it is important to understand that while no lifting technique can produce permanent results, facelift surgery will generally produce longer lasting results than a thread lift. The results of facelift surgery can last up to a decade, while a thread lift will usually last one to three years. However, because the thread lift procedure is such a low risk, patients who like the results of their thread lift can usually choose to place a new set of temporary sutures once their old sutures are absorbed by the body.
Compared to other injectable cosmetic treatments, thread lifters stand out for their long-lasting results. Botulinum toxin injections and many dermal fillers generally offer results that last less than a year. Results vary from patient to patient, but thread lifts usually last 18 months or longer. The results of a thread lift should not be permanent. Successful effects usually last 1 to 3 years.
Like other soluble dermal fillers, such as Botox, the threads used in the procedure will eventually be absorbed into the tissue beneath the skin. Another benefit that separates a PDO lift from other anti-aging treatments is its long-lasting results. When you choose anti-aging injectables to treat the signs of aging, you'll get results, but they won't last as long as a thread lift. Most thread lifts last 18 months or more, and once the effects wear off, you can schedule another treatment to maintain beautiful, youthful skin. PDO threads have a very long lasting effect on the skin. The actual yarn will be around 4 to 6 months before it is absorbed by the natural hydrolysis process.
As such, it pulls and tightens the skin throughout this period, after which the skin remains in place and collagen continues to be produced. In general, most patients see the results of their thread lift, which lasts about 12 to 15 months in total. While the threads stay in the body for about four to six months, the results of stretching the threads can last up to a year. Your skincare routine and overall health can affect how long your results last. Initial treatment will lift and support the skin, an effect you will notice immediately after treatment.
If you have any exceptional health conditions, be sure to talk to your doctor about whether a thread lift might be right for you or not. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons advises that you skip your daily moisturizer for the first few weeks after a thread lift and sleep with your head raised to avoid tipping over newly placed sutures. There is virtually no risk of scarring, severe bruising, bleeding or other complications after undergoing a thread lift. Silhouette InstaLift threads are also designed to create fairly long-lasting results; patients can expect to enjoy the impact of their Silhouette InstaLift for one to three years. When you undergo a thread lift treatment, we will begin by cleaning and numbing the treatment area.
These threads are made from medical grade materials and have been used in the medical world to perform surgical procedures for years. There are barbed threads that can hook and lift the skin, and there are screw-shaped threads that can increase facial volume. Other threads have barbs that can hook into loose skin from below, lifting it back into place. While recovery from thread lift is not particularly intensive, patients will still have to take some minor precautions during healing. Many people want the results that come from a surgical facelift but aren't ready to commit to price or recovery. Thread lifts were first available in the 1990s but those threads could only be pulled in one direction which meant that patients sometimes got results that seemed too tight.
You will also be advised to avoid saunas and high intensity workouts during the first week after performing the thread lift. After consulting with your provider and booking your appointment they may give you some guidelines on what to do and what not to do to prepare for your thread lift. A thread lift is a type of procedure in which temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible stretch in the skin. There is no risk of scarring or severe bruising after undergoing this procedure and most patients see results lasting 12-15 months in total.
