A Threadlift may be right for you. A Threadlift procedure involves your surgeon threading sutures underneath your skin. The sutures promote collagen formation and eventually dissolve on their own, leaving new, supportive collagen and giving you a fresher, younger look.
The ideal patient has some sagging of the face but not yet ready for a full facelift. The area is anesthetized with local anesthesia. A small incision is made to introduce the suture. There can be bruising that lasts up to one week to ten days after the procedure. There will be swelling of the face that can last a few weeks. The results can be enhanced by adding fillers, fat transfer, or laser resurfacing with a PDO threadlift.
PDO threads are passed under the skin and they have barbs that hold them in place. It takes less than 30 minutes to do and lasts over 6 months to 1 year.
The set cost is $2500 for the threadlift procedure.
This procedure is done on an outpatient basis under local anesthetic. It takes about 30 minutes, and you will only need one treatment, unlike most filler and laser treatments. Downtime after a Threadlift is minimal and any swelling is usually calmed by application of ice packs on the treated area.
