The thread facelift is a non-surgical facelift that uses dissolvable threads to lift the skin and produce a more youthful appearance. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we offer this and other facial rejuvenation techniques to patients living in Salem, Newburyport and Boston, MA, as well as those in Hampton, Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH, and the neighboring areas.
What is a Thread Facelift?
A thread facelift, sometimes referred to as a thread lift, is a non-surgical facelift alternative that uses dissolvable threads to lift the skin. Upon insertion of the threads, the skin will be fastened in lifted position, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. Over time, the body breaks down the dissolvable threads, which stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. As collagen increases, it will continue to enhance the natural lift and volume of the skin for lasting results. The thread facelift produces rejuvenation results that are visible for years, without the recovery and extensive surgery involved in a traditional facelift.
How Much Does a Thread Facelift Cost in Boston, MA?
The cost of your thread facelift treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is the Thread Facelift Performed?
The thread facelift procedure is performed using local anesthesia to ensure that the patient remains entirely comfortable during treatment. During the procedure, a small needle device will be used to insert the dissolvable threads into the skin, lifting it into the desired position. The number and location of these threads will depend on your treatment goals. A thread facelift procedure is typically performed in under an hour.
What Can I Expect After My Thread Facelift?
After the thread facelift, the results will be visible immediately. These results will continue to improve as the body breaks down the dissolvable threads and produces collagen. Patients may notice mild bruising or swelling in the treatment areas, but these effects usually fade within a day or two. Dr. Ballenas will provide you with specific recovery instructions based on your individual treatment, but most patients have to take a few days off of work to ensure a smooth recovery. The dissolvable threads used for a thread facelift are broken down by the body in about six months, but the lift and continued benefits from an increase in collagen can last up to three years.
