Thread Lift in Houston TX
What Is Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a type of non-surgical facelift that provides dramatic results with minimal invasion to the body, and at lower costs than a surgical procedure. Because thread lifts require no incisions, there is no scarring to worry about, results look completely natural, and downtime is greatly reduced in comparison to more invasive surgical procedures. Doctors and patients alike are thrilled with the results of these procedures, which allow patients to save time and money, as well as reducing risks associated with surgery.
A thread lift is performed using surgical sutures made of the same safe and absorbable material used in heart surgeries, which is among the safest materials that may be implanted into the human body. Thread lift procedures are provided in the Houston area at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, a full service aesthetic medical center under the direction of respected plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo.
Two thread lift procedures have been recently approved by the FDA for use in non-surgical facelifts and minimally invasive neck lift procedures: the Silhouette Instalift and NovaThreads. Both procedures are designed to lift facial tissue and produce a younger-looking facial appearance. Both are excellent micro-invasive methods for lifting and rejuvenating. Both may be combined with other treatments, such as Botox or dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments or microneedling.
These procedures may be performed on any area of the face or body, takes 30 to 45 minutes, and requires only local anesthesia, which means that patients may resume normal activities immediately following treatment. Most patients require no pain medication following treatment.
NovaThreads™ Thread Lift
NovaThreads are absorbable threads that are absorbed by the body within four to six months after treatment. These threads may be plain or curved sutures, or contain tiny barbs that lift the skin. These threads once inserted into the skin, not only serve to gently pull the skin tighter, but also contributed to increased collagen production, improving skin tone at the cellular level.
NovaThreads may be used to create both lifting effects and skin rejuvenation through collagen production, and results last from six months to a year, so follow-up procedures must be repeated periodically in order to maintain optimal results.
Tread Lift With Silhouette® Instalift™
The Silhouette Instalift also uses absorbable threads, but these also contain absorbable trumpet-shaped cones designed to anchor and engage skin tissue, producing a lifting and plumping effect.
The Instalift may be performed in various areas, but the treatment is especially ideal for lifting and increasing volume in facial tissue, particularly in the area of the brow, cheeks, corners of the mouth, jaw line, and neck. It is also effective at treating skin laxity or crepe paper skin in areas such as the arms and above the knees. The Instalift™ longer lasting results and follow-up treatments may be required after one or two years.
Ideal Candidates for Thread Lift
A thread lift is an ideal preventative treatment on patients showing early signs of aging and is ideal for men and women between the ages of 30 and 60 whose skin is just starting to show signs of skin laxity and sagging. Those with more excessive sagging may require a traditional facelift.
