There’s no denying the compelling benefits of facelift surgery for turning back the clock and helping patients restore a more youthful appearance. However, there are many men and women who are interested in facial rejuvenation but may not be willing or able to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery. For these patients, thread lifting may be a fantastic solution. The expert team of plastic surgeons at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA is proud to offer the revolutionary thread lift as a nonsurgical alternative to facelift surgery. Discover the exciting benefits of thread lifting here, including when you can expect to see your vibrant new look.
As we age, a natural decline in our body’s production and supply of collagen contributes to a noticeable loss of skin elasticity. This – along with sun exposure, genetics, smoking, and other factors – inevitably leads to lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin. Oftentimes, these signs of aging first appear on the face, which can be particularly frustrating. While over-the-counter products may help to conceal or slow the progression of sagging skin, they, unfortunately, do little to actually correct the problem. Without a doubt, professional cosmetic treatments and procedures are the best solutions for addressing signs of facial aging and achieving firmer, tighter, more youthful skin. Common facial rejuvenation treatments in Northern Virginia include:
During your initial consultation at Austin-Weston, your plastic surgeon will thoroughly examine your concerns, discuss your desired outcome, and answer all of your questions at length before recommending the most appropriate anti-aging treatment or procedure for you.
Thread lifting is an innovative nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedure that is designed to lift, firm, and tighten the skin through the use of dissolvable PDO threads. During a thread lift, which can be performed with local or topical anesthesia in one of our in-office procedure rooms, the surgeon will first mark strategic entry and exit points on the patient’s face. Using fine needles, the surgeon will then insert delicate threads – or sutures – into the patient’s face. The threads are then pulled and secured accordingly to give the patient a lifted, refreshed, natural-looking result. Not only do the threads physically lift the skin, but they also stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, meaning thread lift results will continue to improve over time.
Sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime lift,” the thread lift offers patients the ultimate level of convenience. Following the procedure, there may be some redness, bruising, minor swelling, or irritation at the treatment sites, but these are typically mild and resolve quickly. Patients are able to return almost immediately to their daily routines, with the exception of strenuous physical exercise, after a thread lift procedure.
One of the most exciting benefits of thread lift facial rejuvenation is that it offers almost instant results that continue to improve. Patients will leave the office with a noticeably lifted, fresher look right after thread lifting. Because the dissolving PDO threads encourage the production of collagen, the skin will continue to become firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking over the next several months.
Depending on the nature and severity of your facial aging, the type of thread lift performed, and other factors, the results of a thread lift treatment may last up to a year or longer before a repeat procedure is needed. To maintain your thread lift results for as long as possible, it is important to:
