Body Contouring by Non-Surgical Thread Lift
BODY CONTOURING OPTIONS
Thread lift treatment can easily help to firm up body parts that you want, ensuring you have a more youthful appearance overall. Your knees, arms, breast, buttocks and décolletage can be treated using this technique, addressing growing folds, saggy skin, wrinkles, stretch marks and other blemishes on your body. You can also discuss with our doctors about other body parts that you may want to contour as thread lift is a treatment that is extremely versatile, and can be adapted depending on the situation.
HOW IT WORKS
A fine, sterile needle will be used to help insert the PDO (Polydiozanone) absorbable threads into the selected treatment area. These threads will promote the production of fresh elastin and collagen; these proteins are needed for your skin to return to its elastic state as well as to repair itself. Over the following 6-8 months, these threads will slowly be absorbed by the body. You should notice an improvement in your skin texture after the treatment, becoming firmer and tighter while your pores shrink and the number of wrinkles reduce. Your skin tone should also appear much healthier overall.
WHY THREAD LIFT?
This non-surgical procedure can offer long term results, lasting for up to 1-2 years, and is suitable for individuals that are afraid of going under the knife. You will be able to notice a visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles almost immediately after the treatment, with no downtime needed. In addition, the treatment can act as a natural alternative to Botox as muscles will not be paralysed; instead it only relaxes them, reducing the influence of muscle actions. As muscles are relaxed, your skin will become smoother and appear youthful.
DURING THE PROCEDURE
An anaesthetic cream will be used to numb the skin just before treatment, minimising the pain and discomfort as well. This treatment takes about 50 minutes to complete, but this will vary depending on the treatment area. You might experience a sensation similar to prickling that is caused by acupuncture needling, but this is not painful and any skin redness that develops will subside in a few days’ time.
Depending on the treatment area, the threads can also vary in both length and thickness. Your doctor will offer advice about specific treatments for each area in order to get optimal results.
