Thread lift FAQ
Tinkable offer thread lifts which are a brilliant alternative to the facelift, using no incisions or cuts
What is a thread lift?
As previously mentioned, the thread lift does not require any cuts or incisions for the procedure to be carried out, thread lifts act as a regenerator and rejuvenator for the skin’s structure.
The threads are introduced into the skin through a thin needle that lifts the tissue and the muscle of the face, essentially improving the overall skin texture.
How does it work?
The threads are made from soluble polydioxanone (PDO) which is a chemical that has been used in medicine, particularly in surgery for many years. While research shows that PDO has the ability to relax muscles and tendons, it can also stimulate the neocollagenesis process, which acts a stimulant thus producing more collagen in the skin. The chemical also encourages the synthesis of Hyaluronic acid and elastin in the skin, both of which are important for the overall look of the skin keeping it plump and youthful.
The thread is then inserted into the skin through a thin needle. Varying on the area that needs to be treated, the thread can be introduced into the skin itself, the muscle or even the subcutaneous fat. Almost immediately after the treatment, certain areas of the skin appear lifted, the best part yet? The results continue to improve following the treatment for up to 6 months.
What areas are available for treatment with the PDO threads?
The face and neck are where the threads have the most effect. When injected at the upper part the face, the threads can effect on wrinkles on the forehead, sagging brows, drooping cheeks, folds and wrinkles on the skin and a sagging jaw line.
What are the expected results?
The results from the thread lift can be seen almost immediately after the treatment; your skin will have an enhanced, natural appearance and of course, lifted. Following the treatment, roughly ten to fourteen days, the process of the natural body protein synthesis starts and continues over a period of two years, keeping the skin’s texture smooth.
Please bear in mind that after this procedure it is common you will experience bruising, however, the degree of the bruising will depend on the area that had been treated.
