The importance of facial contours
Contours of the face have received significant attention in the last decade as facial contouring with make-up has become mainstream. When we first meet someone, our brain immediately scans their face and they do the same with ours. We look for information about the other person such as their age, gender, and emotions. Facial contours are a big part of this quick facial scanning by our brain.
Thread lifts are becoming an increasingly popular method of achieving desired facial and neck contours with minimal invasiveness and down time. While they cannot replace a surgical facelift, they are ideal in circumstances where facial aging is prevalent enough to be noticeable, but not significant enough to require surgical correction
How Thread Lifting is done
Thread lifting is a short procedure performed comfortably with local anesthetic in approximately one hour with immediately apparent results. Little to no recovery period is required as there are no incisions and minimal bruising and swelling to be expected. Most patients return to work the next day and are surprised at that significant immediate lift and contouring achieved.
Often times, other procedures can be performed in conjunction with thread lifting to optimize results and appearance. These can include sub-mental liposuction (removing fat from under the chin in the neck) or facial volumization with fillers or biological stimulators such as Sculptra or Radiesse.
