Face Thread Lift – Look 10 Years Younger just like the world’s biggest movie stars!
Did you know that Leonardo di Caprio is 45? Or that Anne Hathaway is 37? How does Demi Moore still look as beautiful as she did 20 years ago? Your looks are very important if you’re a celebrity, and it is very important for an actor or actress is known for his/her beautiful face to keep it that way.
Makeup can only do so much in enhancing someone’s looks. Even the best makeup artists and hairdressers can’t make wrinkles, saggy skin and bad hair go away. Aesthetic clinics do a great job of ensuring that a celebrity maintains his/her good looks through a proper care routine that includes a strict diet, exercise, and cosmetic procedures.
One of the most popular cosmetic procedures for looking younger is the face thread lift. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that achieves similar effects to traditional facelift surgery. Unlike traditional facelifts though, there is minimal incision involved. Instead, a face thread lift uses threads made of special material, which improves the skin and produces a tightening effect over time. If you’re looking to get one, visit Cambridge Medical, or your nearest aesthetic clinic.
Thread lifts stimulate the production of collagen in the targeted area, which in turn improves the quality of your skin. Collagen is the main protein in the body responsible for maintaining the skin structure, and a shortage of it makes the skin lose its firmness and turn saggy and loose. Thread lifts aim to reverse this process by encouraging your skin to produce more collagen.
How do face thread lifts work?
The threads used in face thread lifts are made of one of three materials:
- PDO (polydioxanone) – this is the most commonly used material for threads and are trusted for their safety and reliability
- PLLA (poly-L lactic acid) – are effective in supporting the skin structure
- PCL (polycaprolactone) – a newer material that is assumed to be stronger than PDO threads, but is still being studied and is being used in a limited capacity
Whichever material is used in the threads, they are all inserted into the skin in a very precise trajectory to ensure that it provides a significant lift to the skin. These threads have cogs or barbs to keep them in place when inserted. Finally, the material used in the threads will gradually dissolve and will encourage the skin to produce more collagen.
Who are good candidates for face thread lifts?
Good candidates for the procedure include those who:
- Has slight signs of ageing
Face thread lifts are recommended only if you have minimal saggy or loose skin. This is mostly used for men and women aged 40 to 60 years old.
- Wants a younger-looking and more beautiful physical appearance
If you’re a celebrity or if you work in the entertainment and TV industry, then your looks are a big part of how effective you are at your job. Face thread lifts are great in ensuring that your youthful appearance is maintained.
- Have had a face thread lift before but the effects have started to disappear
Face thread lifts have effects that last a long time – about 1 to 2 years after the procedure. When these effects start to disappear, patients can undergo follow-up face thread lifts to maintain their youthful exuberance.
Why get a face thread lift instead of traditional facelift surgery?
- Faster recovery time
Unlike traditional facelift surgery which has a long recovery period (about 14 to 20 days), face thread lift surgery has a much, much quicker recovery time. Traditional facelifts are surgical procedures, and it needs a lot of time to heal the incisions made during the operation. It is also important for patients of traditional facelifts to have some take care of them for 2 to 3 days after the surgery, as it will be hard for them to move while the facelift is still fresh. Face thread lifts, on the other hand, are minimally invasive, and only minimal incisions are made during the procedure. This slashes the recovery period to just a few days, and patients can resume their daily activities in as quick as 3 days after the surgery.
- Less expensive
Face thread lifts are a fairly simple procedure compared to traditional facelifts and are also more affordable. Less anaesthesia is needed as well and since the recovery period is shorter, the patient will not have to miss a lot of days from work.
- Less risk of complications
Surgical procedures, such as traditional facelifts, carry a lot of risks to the patient due to the invasiveness of the operation. There are risks of bruising, scarring, bleeding and other complications. Face thread lifts, on the other hand, are minimally invasive, and the risks of complications are significantly reduced. Also, unlike traditional facelifts which are irreversible, face thread lifts can be reversed as the threads can be removed easily by the surgeon.
If you’re ever thinking of getting a facelift to look younger just like the world’s biggest movie stars, why not get a face thread lift? Although traditional facelifts have longer-lasting effects, they carry the risk of surgical procedures that you probably want to avoid. This is true especially if you’re a working professional, where it’s hard to set some time for recovery. As always, make sure you’ve undergone a full consultation with the aesthetic clinic to ensure that it is safe for you to undergo the procedure.
