Thread lifts are a popular anti-aging treatment that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. The procedure delivers immediate results and can last up to 18 months or longer. 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 procedure itself is relatively low risk and 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.
Results vary from patient to patient, but thread lifts usually last 18 months or longer. Botulinum toxin injections and many dermal fillers generally offer results that last less than a year. The best way to ensure long-lasting results is to follow your doctor's instructions for aftercare. Your skincare routine and overall health can affect how long your results last. It is also important to understand that the threads used in the procedure will eventually be absorbed into the tissue beneath the skin. The ideal candidate for thread lift is usually between the ages of thirty and fifty, while most patients over the age of 55 will benefit most profoundly from facelift surgery.
When applied correctly, a thread lift can lift the skin, tighten its structure and make it look much younger. 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. The actual yarn will be around 4 to 6 months before it is absorbed by the natural hydrolysis process. Most thread lifts last 18 months or more, and once the effects wear off, you can schedule another treatment to maintain beautiful, youthful skin. The best complementary treatments for your PDO thread lift depend on the results you are looking to achieve. Initial treatment will lift and support the skin, an effect you will notice immediately after treatment. 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.
Finally, because thread lifts are much easier to perform than facelift surgery, they are much more affordable. Strong pain relievers are rarely needed after undergoing a thread lift, making it easier for patients to return to their normal routine.
