Aging can take quite a toll on your skin. While there are cosmetic treatments out there to target fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin poses a different problem. In fact, the only option that patients have had to tighten drooping skin such as jowls have been cosmetic surgery. Of course, we know that not all patients want to undergo invasive surgeries in order to get results. That’s why we are providing thread lift here at Loop Dental Care. Thread lift is a simple solution that can restore firmness back into your skin without needing surgery.
About Thread Lift
While cosmetic surgery actually removes loose skin in order to provide a tighter appearance, thread lifts suspends the skin with stitches to lift and tighten. This procedure also stimulates the body’s natural healing response to produce collagen, a substance that helps keep skin supple and firm.
As we get older, our bodies naturally lose collagen, which results in wrinkled, sagging skin. By stimulating the production of collagen we can provide a natural approach to treating loose, aging skin. Not only will thread lift provide instant results, it will also continue to provide rejuvenating benefits as it stimulates collagen production. While thread lift treatment won’t be able to provide the same drastic results as surgery it can lift the skin several millimeters and be a great alternative to surgery.
The Benefits of Thread Lift
The most obvious benefit is that this simple treatment provides patients with a way to combat aging and improve the appearance without resorting to expensive and invasive cosmetic surgery, which also requires a long recovery period. Unlike cosmetic surgery, which is performed under general anesthesia, thread lift only requires local anesthesia. This means there is less post-treatment recovery time. In most cases, patients can even drive themselves home right after.
You can also return to work immediately after treatment; however, you can expect to experience some redness and soreness after your thread lift procedure. Some patients choose to take the day off to rest. Of course, since there is no recovery time, this makes it a great treatment option for those who can’t take time off work. Furthermore, because this treatment is non-invasive there is virtually no risk of certain side effects such as bruising, bleeding or scarring.
