A very popular treatment that is sweeping across the United States is the thread lift. This treatment is very similar to a facelift, but there is minimal to no pain and no downtime at all. However, these are just a couple of the great benefits of choosing a thread lift. Here are five reasons why you may want to use this as your choice.

It Is an Instant Lift

One of the very best benefits is that this treatment both repositions and supports sagging skin, which is common as we age. In the treatment, an absorbable mechanical thread is inserted deep into the layers of the skin. This thread is made of a biodegradable polymer, which means that over time it is slowly absorbed by the body. This helps to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and Hyaluronic acid, which provides longer-lasting effects.

There Is No Downtime

In some cosmetic procedures, the patient is required to have a week or two to recuperate. This is not true for the thread lift. At most, a person is out for a couple of days before they are able to continue normal activities.

The Long-Term Results Are Incredible

The long-term effects of using this procedure are phenomenal. Because these dissolvable threads work slowly over time, new collagen production is stimulated, which helps to provide longer-lasting effects. The skin stays plumper and more useful over time, as long as 12 months from one single treatment.

Reduces Both Wrinkles and Fine Lines

The goal of any procedure of this type is to reduce wrinkles and fine lines in the skin. The increased production of new collagen has a dramatic impact on both of these areas, helping to make a person look a lot younger and the skin looks plumper and more youthful.

The Skin Looks Tight and Great

This was just mentioned in the last point, but it is worth diving into and elaborating upon even more. Collagen is what makes the skin tighter, and the thread lift procedure can stimulate the production of collagen so that a more natural, more intimate look to the skin is what is produced. This greatly reduces facial sagging, helping a person look much more youthful.

Best of all, this is a safe and effective procedure. It usually takes less than 60 minutes to complete the procedure, and the results can last for as long as a year. It is truly worth this option over traditional facelift procedures.
