A Thread Lift through VG Plastic Surgery South Korea can produce similar effects to a surgical face lift, without the down time. This procedure offers a great alternative for those who are not wanting to go under the knife for a younger looking face.
A thread lift is considered a minimally-invasive treatment, it does not involve cutting or stitching, however, it does involve injecting the thread underneath your skin to “lift” it up, creating the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore tightening the face.
Benefits of Thread Lifting
Patients who undergo the Thread Lift procedure enjoy a more definitive V-shaped face with minimal effort and zero recovery time. This means that patients can go back to normal activities on the same day of the procedure.
Because the Thread Lift involves the use of threads, not surgery, there is no need for incisions and therefore no scarring. As the threads dissolve tissue elasticity is improved and regeneration is encouraged to create a smoother facial contour. Cell generation and collagen synthesis diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and enhances the V-line.
This method is simple, yet it’s effectiveness can be seen very quickly, making it a suitable treatment for those with busy lives.
Overview of Threading Procedure
Firstly, a numbing cream will be applied to the area that is meant to be treated. It takes up to 20 – 30 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect. The doctor will then mark out the positions of the threads to achieve the best possible results.
The doctor will begin by inserting a thick hollow needle into the facial skin, targeting under the fat layer. One end of the thread is carefully tied to firmer underlying internal structures while the other end goes underneath the skin.
As the surgeon withdraws the needle, the filaments on the sutures are deposited into the sagging parts of the face. The doctor then tugs on the threads to elevate droopy skin and sets it to a more youthful-looking position. The procedure is relatively simple and can be done in just an hour or less.
