Thread Lift (Silhouette Instalift Thread Lift)
Are you bothered by fine lines, wrinkles, and deepening facial folds? Would you like to lift skin on your face and neck that has begun to sag? A thread lift (Silhouette Instalift Thread Lift) at the Michigan Center for Cosmetic Services in Ann Arbor, MI can give you a more youthful look by lifting and repositioning loose skin. Best of all, this is a simple, in-office treatment that offers results that can last for as long as two years.
What Is a Thread Lift (Silhouette Instalift Thread Lift)?
A thread lift treatment can broadly renew an aging face by smoothing lined skin, tightening up loose areas that have begun to sag, and softening folds like the ones that frame the mouth. This non-surgical treatment involves the placement of dissolvable threads made of surgical suture material beneath the skin. The threads are placed in a way that tightens and lifts while providing immediate support from just below the skin.
Once in place, the threads also spur collagen production, which further plumps and smooths the skin. What makes our Silhouette Instalift Threads unique is that they have a cone-like shape on them that can hook into the skin in the cheeks and jowls and lift it, producing especially noticeable results. The threads placed beneath your skin will eventually dissolve.
What Parts of the Face Does This Treatment Address?
A thread lift (Silhouette Instalift Thread Lift) is used to reverse signs of aging on the mid-face, lower face, and neck.
How Soon Will I See Results?
There’s a reason why these are known as Instalift threads. They get to work right away, instantly lifting your skin and giving it a firmer appearance. But that’s not all. The look of your skin will continue to improve as your collagen levels increase. The length of your results varies by patient, but most individuals find that the improvement in their face lasts up to two years. When your results begin to fade, you can schedule a follow-up treatment.
Can I Combine a Thread Lift (Silhouette Instalift Thread Lift) With Other Treatments?
Yes, patients often opt to combine threading treatments with dermal fillers, botulinum toxin injections, and other cosmetic services offered by our practice. We can also perform a thread lift after other skin-tightening procedures like FaceTite for even better results. We can advise on how and when you should schedule complimentary services.
How It Works
Thread lifts are a swift and easy treatment, especially considering the great results they deliver. We’ll begin by cleansing the treatment area and inject the numbing medication. Because the threads are placed using a needle, we will mark the areas where we’ll insert and remove the needle. The entire treatment can often be performed in an hour or less.
Will I Have Any Special Restrictions Afterward?
You’ll be asked not to aggressively rub the treatment area for one to two weeks. You will also be asked to avoid strenuous activity for 1 week. Patients can return immediately to their regular schedules following the procedure.
Will the Threads Be Visible?
No. Your threads won’t be visible to anyone once they are in place beneath your skin. Some patients who have naturally thin skin can feel the threads if they press on the treatment area, but there is no pain or any visible sign of the threads. You won’t be able to feel them for long, as they start to settle into the tissue.
Is This Right for Me?
You Want a Comprehensive Anti-Aging Skin Treatment
Thread lifts are best suited for patients who want to tackle signs of aging like volume loss, crepey skin, sagging or a combination of those skin concerns. They can be used to tighten the midface (cheeks), lower face, and neck.
You Have Healthy Skin
One of the most important criteria is that you have healthy skin in the area you’re seeking to treatment. That means your skin should be without inflammation and free of infection.
You Want a Non-Surgical Treatment
Patients are often drawn to the non-surgical nature of this treatment, which makes it much easier to schedule and recover from. The results this treatment offers, though, can be less dramatic than those that can be achieved through surgery or minimally invasive procedures. The best candidates want a non-surgical option and understand the type of results they’ll get.
You’re in Good General Health
Ideal patients are in good overall health.
What Advantages Does This Treatment Offer?
Thread lifts are well known for their ability to help patients rejuvenate their appearance, but not everyone realizes how many different ways this treatment can be put to work. Threads can build just enough volume to fill in the cheeks. They can also sculpt the neck and jawline to reduce the appearance of jowls.
This straightforward treatment is performed in our office without the need for anesthesia or a recovery period. It can easily be worked into a busy schedule. Looking great has never been so simple.
It Offers Long-Lasting Results
A single treatment offers some patients results that last for as long as two years. That’s longer than some other cosmetic treatments, including botulinum toxin injections and certain dermal fillers.
Whether you want to tackle multiple signs of aging or you really want to focus on lifting and tightening skin that has begun to sag, this treatment can be completely customized for your individual needs. This is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. We’ll design a thread lift plan just for you once we’ve had a chance to evaluate your skin.
What’s the First Step?
It’s easy to get started with thread lifting. All you need to do is schedule a consultation with our practice, where we’ll evaluate your skin, review your medical history, and determine if this treatment can successfully address your cosmetic concerns.
