When looking for a treatment to smooth fine lines and make your face appear ageless, there are plenty of options out there, such as Botox® injections, fillers, and more. While all of these options are great, if you’re looking for a treatment that will visibly tighten skin and promote collagen production for healthier skin, a thread lift in Austin, TX, can provide you with longer-lasting results.
How Does a Thread Lift Work?
A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that inserts threads to reposition the tissues of the cheeks or neck to create tighter skin. The threads are biodegradable and biocompatible, so they are safe for the body. They act as a foundation for the tissue, preventing it from sagging. Plus, in addition to the threads tightening the skin, they also help promote blood flow and collagen production–which naturally slows with age–resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.
How Long Do Results Last?
You will notice results soon after having the threads placed and may notice your results improving as swelling from the procedure subsides and collagen and blood flow increase. These results may last between one to three years, making it a great treatment option for those looking to improve fine lines and tighten skin while slowing down the process of aging.
For patients who may not want to undergo treatment multiple times a year, the results from this procedure do last longer than other leading cosmetic treatments. Plus, they don’t have to be removed; their biodegradable nature allows them to break down naturally over time.
