If you’re looking for more lifted and youthful facial contouring but don’t want invasive cosmetic surgery, a thread lift is definitely something to consider. This is one of many advanced treatments available from the team at XBody Health, Wellness & Spa serving the community of Wayne, New Jersey. To find out what a thread lift can do for you, schedule a complimentary consultation online or by phone today.
A thread lift is a noninvasive method of lifting targeted areas of your face to create a more youthful and well-rested appearance. Thread lifts deliver an immediate lifting effect, but even better, they also enable additional lifting over time.
This approach does not remove excess skin and tissue but lifts your skin in the targeted areas. A thread lift also triggers your body’s innate healing response, creating new cells that smooth and tighten your skin through the production of collagen.
In years past, thread lifts used permanent materials to lift and hold your skin into position. Today’s threads are made of materials that slowly dissolve over time. Your practitioner places the threads in the desired area of your face with a needle after numbing medication ensures The threads are covered in tiny cones or barbs that grasp nearby tissue to remain in place.
Your body perceives the new threads as tissue damage and rushes to repair that area. This process leads to new collagen production, which plumps and smooths your skin.
You can expect the effects of a thread lift to last for one year or more. Your results depend on the degree of sagging you are trying to improve and how your body responds to the implanted threads. XBody Health, Wellness & Spa uses NovaThreadsⓇ and MINT liftⓇ threads:
NovaThreads are made of an absorbable material called polydioxanone (PDO). They come in a variety of barbed, smooth, and twisted thread types to anchor to the tissues within your face.
MINT stands for minimally invasive nonsurgical threads. These threads are also made of PDO with specialized bi-directional barbs to anchor sturdily into place until your tissues absorb them.
Thread lifts can absolutely improve sagging skin and visible aging, but there are limits to what can be achieved using this approach.
It’s also important to note that a thread lift won’t change the texture of your skin or issues like hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, or acne scarring. Laser treatments, chemical peels, or other aesthetic treatments can address these issues and work in conjunction with a thread lift.
If you’re hoping for moderate lifting and want to avoid general anesthesia, lengthy recovery, and the risks associated with invasive surgery, a thread lift might be a great fit for you.
