A thread lift, also called a barbed suture lift or a PDO Thread Lift is an aesthetic procedure that aims to lift and sculpt the shape of your face or other parts of your body. Thread lifts use temporary, medical-grade suture material to elevate, tighten and rejuvenate your skin. They are made out of Polydiaxonone, a material that has been used in surgery for many decades. Thread lifts have been around since the 1990’s, but innovations in the material used for thread lifts have led to an increase in popularity in recent years. The effect of these procedures can last up to 12 months.
The typical candidate for a thread lift is in their late 30s to early 50s. A person who is generally in good health and is just starting to notice the signs of aging may benefit the most from the subtle impact of a thread lift. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia in the office setting.Those who can’t have a surgical facelift because of medical conditions may consider a thread lift as an alternative.
ThermiTight is a nonsurgical treatment that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy just below the surface of the skin. It can be used on the neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, and thighs, to treat mild to moderate sagging skin. The ThermiTight probe introduces heat into the deep tissues, triggering your body’s natural collagen-production response. It’s safe for people with all skin types and tones, and most people need just a single treatment—a unique advantage over similar RF procedures. However, the number of sessions you’ll ultimately need will depend on your skin type, the results you want, and the way your body responds to ThermiTight treatments. ThermiTight treatments can take up to three hours, depending on the targeted area and has a very little downtime. Since the incisions are small, you won’t require any sutures.. Swelling and bruising can be significant and take two to four weeks to resolve. Typically, results last three to five years. No procedure can stop the hands of time, so the treatment area will continue to age naturally—and you’ll need maintenance treatments every few years, to correct the changes of aging skin.
