None surgical face lift is one of the fastest-growing non-surgical procedures in the aesthetic world.

Thread Lift an alternative to Face Lift

As a patient, you are looking for an alternative from a surgical facelift with no need for a general anesthetic with an effective, immediate, and natural result, minimal downtime, and a long-lasting result.

As a practitioner, when administrating a thread lift,¬† we want blunt needles that can be manipulated easily through small puncture wounds that leave no scars under local safe anesthetic. We want the strong thread, reliable to use and something flexible with elasticity to allow natural patient’s face movement.

Latest thread’s generation

It is possible with the last Threads generation with Aptos Threads and Spring Threads. A thread lift is less invasive than surgical procedures. Also, there are no scars. Threads are inserted through small puncture wounds

Aptos threads are made of caprolac, a material that is eliminated from the body in 360 days. L-lactic acid ( a component of the thread) provides an additional rejuvenating effect, which activates a natural, revitalising process and slows down ageing processes. The bi-directional cones of the threads allow us to achieve optimum tissue elevation and repositioning sagging soft tissues into a more vertical position for a younger look.

Spring threads are made of silicone that provides elasticity and flexibility and with polyester. Spring threads are perfectly biocompatible, safe, and neutral and do not cause any side effects. The Spring Threads’s elasticity allows dynamic stabilisation of tissues. They adapt to muscle mobility, and the result is a natural effect. They are not dissolvable threads for an extremely long-lasting result of 3 years.

Who is eligible for a Thread Lift?

The initial consultation is essential to identify if a patient is a right candidate for a thread lift. The thread lift is not a surgical facelift, so it is necessary to discuss thoroughly what will be the outcome of the procedure to manage properly patient’s expectation. During the consultation, I will go through the risks, benefits, and treatment alternatives.

Depending on age, skin quality, medical condition, fillers could be an alternative. However, fillers in older patients have their limitations. Overuse of fillers may result in unnatural contours and an overfilled appearance. Most of the time, the best result is achieved with a combination of threads and fillers when repositioning tissues and recreating missing volumes are needed.

How does it work?

A thread lift is designed to tighten sagging skin, reduce wrinkles.

The thread mustn’t disappear too soon to allow the collagenase to start and establish the formation of new collagen before the threads are completely dissolved. It is why the lifting effect is more effective and lasts longer with the not dissolvable threads.

Also, the quality of collagen produced is essential. As we get older, our collagen production decreases, and collagen I and III can be generated via the implantation of the Threads.

Collagen type I is the most predominant collagen in the human body. Collagen type I is the top choice when considering an anti-ageing solution to improve skin laxity, reduce fine wrinkles, and wound healing.

Collagen type III is the second most crucial collagen produced in the human body and works complementary with collagen type I to boost skin elastic its and firmness.

The main difference between collagen type I and collagen type III is that collagen type III is a more rigid scar-like collagen when Collagen type I is softer collagen.

PDO Threads are implanted more superficially than the proper lift threads like Aptos Thread and Spring thread. PDO threads stimulate the formation of collagen type III. Aptos Threads or Spring Threads stimulate more the formation of collagen type I. It is the ideal solution for cosmetic patients looking for not only improvement in skin laxity and wrinkle reduction but as well for smoother and more youthful skin.
