How Thread Lifts Provide Amazing Results

While it may be natural for skin to lose elasticity and tightness with age, when this happens, it can add years to your face. At Medweight, Lasers & Wellness Centers in Irvine, California, our experienced providers have an innovative solution to restore your skin and give you a more youthful appearance: thread lifts

Without the need for anesthesia, incisions, or a scalpel, thread lifts can rejuvenate your face and give you back the smooth skin you used to have. 

What are thread lifts?

Thread lifts are minimally invasive treatments that use surgical-grade threads made from high-density polydioxanone to tighten and lift your face. Using a needle, your provider places threads — which are dissolvable — into areas with loose skin. Each thread is then pulled tight, drawing up your skin and holding it in place.

The process is repeated until your desired look is achieved. It takes about 6-8 months for the threads to dissolve, but since the treatment stimulates your body’s production of collagen and elastin, the effects of a thread lift can last up to three years. 

The best part of a thread lift is that you have noticeable improvements immediately after your treatment. What’s more? Your skin keeps looking better and better as you heal and more collagen is produced, with optimal results showing about three months after treatment.   

Areas thread lifts can treat

At MedWeight, Lasers & Wellness Centers, our team uses thread lifts to treat almost any area of the face and neck where you have sagging skin, including: 

Thread lifts can also be used to treat other areas of the body with sagging skin, such as your tummy, arms, and legs. Many patients come in for treatment to tighten loose skin after significant weight loss or pregnancy.  

Seeing us about a thread lift

Thread lifts are an excellent alternative to surgical facelifts. Their speed, convenience, and minimal recovery are helping thread lifts gain popularity as more and more people turn to thread instead of a scalpel. 

Not everyone is a candidate for a thread lift, however. Before recommending any treatment, your provider at MedWeight, Lasers & Wellness Centers reviews your health history and evaluates your skin. 

If you’re a candidate, we schedule your lift. We can also set up a maintenance schedule to help keep your appearance seamless. If you desire, we can also make customized recommendations for additional services to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
