Cosmetic Threading Q & A

What is the purpose of a facelift?

Facelift surgery is widely considered the most direct and comprehensive way to treat loose, saggy facial skin along your lower face, jawline, and neck. Its primary goal is to tighten underlying tissues and muscles while gently repositioning your skin; the approach is somewhat comparable to straightening and smoothing a tablecloth over a table.

By surgically repositioning your soft tissues, including skin, subcutaneous fat, and muscle, a traditional facelift can reconstruct a more youthful, rejuvenated contour along your face, jaw, and neck.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic threading?

You may consider having cosmetic threading if you have loose, saggy facial skin that either bothers you or makes you appear older than you feel. The treatment can help improve or correct:

  • Sagging skin along your jawline
  • Creased or sagging skin along your neck
  • Droopy eyebrows or a sagging brow line
  • Deep creases around your mouth

Cosmetic threading can also correct or significantly improve noticeable jowls, a double chin, mid-face sagging, and marionette lines — the long vertical wrinkles that extend down from the corners of your mouth.

How is cosmetic threading different from a facelift?

Thanks to ongoing advances in aesthetic medicine, there’s now an easier, safer, less expensive, and much less invasive way to address loose, saggy facial skin and restore a more youthful appearance.

Cosmetic threading— commonly called a “lunchtime lift” — is a highly effective treatment alternative for people who want the cosmetic benefits of a facelift but don’t want to go under the knife.

This nonsurgical, minimally invasive facelift alternative is a quick, in-office procedure that doesn’t involve any cuts or incisions and requires only minimal recovery time afterward.

Cosmetic threading uses hypodermic needles preloaded with sutures made of a medical-grade material that your body absorbs and dissolves naturally over time. These strategically placed sutures act to instantly lift and tighten your skin from underneath while simultaneously stimulating collagen renewal and elastin production.

The team at Elite Dermatology performs cosmetic threading with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort.

How long does cosmetic threading last?

The bio-absorbable sutures used in cosmetic threading provide instant lift from the moment they’re injected, which means you see immediate results. Although the sutures dissolve completely within 4-6 months, you can still expect to see significant lifting results for up to one year.

That’s because the treatment continues to stimulate collagen renewal and elastin production long after the sutures have dissolved, leaving you with beautiful, long-lasting results.

To find out how cosmetic threading can benefit you, call Elite Dermatology today, or schedule an appointment online any time.
