THREAD LIFTS: A NEW WAY TO LIFT SAGGING FACIAL CONTOURS
Infinity Skin Care has recently introduced the Thread Lift procedure, a breakthrough facial rejuvenation procedure that lifts sagging facial skin without the need for surgery and with no downtime!
Thread Lifts entail a minimally-invasive, in-office procedure that provides to add lift and volume to the lower face by lifting the deeper layers of the skin. After the immediate lifting of the tissue, a gradual regeneration of collagen adds volume, with results that improve over time.
The best Thread Lift candidates are patients who are noticing laxity in their mid-face and jawline and have adequate volume, such as young patients who havent yet lost a lot of volume and want the lift and volume provided from the threads to maintain their youthful contours; or older patients who have been maintaining their youthful contours with fillers and Sculptra but are still noticing laxity and desire more lift. Older patients who have not been maintaining their contours in some way and have significant wrinkles and laxity are not likely to get the results they seek with threads alone as their first rejuvenation procedure.
The procedure itself takes about an hour, uses local anesthesia, and feels similar to filler injections with
comparable side effects such as bruising and swelling. In addition, there is a tight feeling and some temporary pulling which relaxes after about a week and they are completely absorbed by the body over the next 4-6 months. This process stimulates the production of collagen, one of the building blocks of skin that diminishes with age.
A pre-treatment consultation is required to determine if patients are a candidate for the Thread Lift procedure.
