Those in Seattle who are looking for a way to look younger and more refreshed should consider a threadlift. This treatment is growing in popularity due to the fact that it can give you dramatic results without the downtime associated with a facelift. If you are looking for a way to combat mild to moderate skin laxity, this may be the treatment choice that is perfect for you.
What is a Threadlift?
A threadlift is a method of lifting sagging or drooping skin around your jawline, neck, or cheeks. The name does a great job of explaining how this procedure works – a thread is used to lift the skin and underlying structure and keep it in place. It is considered to be far less invasive than a traditional facelift procedure. Once the threads have been attached to the desired skin tissue, they can be pulled in a way that lifts the face. The result is a smoother, younger-looking version of you!
Over time, the threads begin to naturally dissolve. While this does mean that your face will begin to return to its previous state, it is likely that some improvements will remain. This is because the thread placement has been shown to stimulate your body to create new collagen, which is the body’s natural way of keeping the skin young and healthy-looking.
Who is a Good Candidate?
This procedure is far less invasive than traditional surgical methods of tightening and lifting the skin, making it a good option for a wide variety of people. Both men and women are good candidates if they are struggling with mild to moderate skin drooping. Typically speaking, the ideal candidate still has decently good skin tone. If you are someone dealing with severe sagging, a traditional facelift may be the better option.
What are the Benefits of a Threadlift?
People in Seattle are falling in love with this treatment option. It has a long list of benefits. Some of the highlights include:
- It does not require general anesthesia.
- There is little to no scarring, unlike with a facelift.
- It makes your skin look firmer and younger.
- It allows you to regain youthful facial contours.
- There is far less downtime than with a facelift.
- It is an effective way to combat the signs of aging.
- Results are more subtle and natural-looking.
How Does a Threadlift Work?
Wondering what exactly you are signing up for if you get a threadlift here in Seattle? Prior to beginning, a detailed plan will be created regarding where the threads will be placed in order to give you the best possible results.
One end of the thread is attached to the underlying structure that supports your face. The other end is higher up beneath the skin. The threads catch the desired parts of the face. They are then used to lift the sagging parts of the skin.
What to Expect After a Threadlift
Right after your procedure, which is performed in the comfort of our office, you should be able to see some improvements to your facial contours. Most people are comfortable with returning to work quickly, if not the very same day. Unlike a traditional facelift, which requires general anesthesia and a lengthy recovery period, a threadlift should not take you away from your normal daily activities too much.
There are a few things you will want to keep in mind in days after your procedure, however. It is important to be extra gentle when washing or applying products to your face. You want to avoid putting any unnecessary pressure on the newly placed threads.
Many people in Seattle are so happy with their results that they elect to have follow-up procedures down the road as needed. Due to how minimally-invasive the treatment is, a threadlift is considered to be a low-risk procedure.
