Optimize Your Look With A Thread Lift in Atlanta
Facial Thread-Lifting gently lifts sagging facial and neck skin to produce a smoother, younger-looking appearance. This procedure is ideal for those who do not want to have a surgical face lift or want to have a quick procedure for a special event.
The Facial Thread-Lifting Procedure
Thread-Lift in Atlanta uses a strategic needle entry of the face and neck that pulls back the skin tissue to lift and smooth any sagging. During the procedure, Peter Abramson, a leading double board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Atlanta, inserts special absorbable, barbed threads into the soft tissue of the face and/or neck. A hollow needle is inserted into the skin to position the threads in place. The threads attach to the skin tissue of fat and pull back to instantly lift and smooth loose skin, reducing the appearance of jowls and sagging skin.
The resorbable threads are made from the copolymer L-lactide and Ꜫ-caprolactone, which is completely biocompatible with the human body and excludes the possibility of an allergic reaction. Polylactic acid, which is included in the composition of the threads, activates the production of collagen and thus provides an additional rejuvenating effect, while slowing down the aging process until the moment of their complete resorption. The effect of the procedure lasts about 2-3 years, depending on the physiological characteristics of the patient, his lifestyle and the recommendations during the recovery period after the procedure.
Is the Procedure Painful?
Thread correction refers to low-traumatic methods and is considered a relatively painless procedure. However, even a small puncture requires anesthesia. Therefore, for the comfort of patients, Dr. Abramson will use local anesthesia, which involves the introduction of an anesthetic solution into the puncture area and over the contour of the threads implantation. In patients, the implantation does not cause painful sensations., however, anesthesia can cause some discomfort, slight unpleasant sensations at the beginning of the procedure and after the procedure when anesthesia ceases.
Targeted Areas for a Thread-Lift
Many people choose a thread lift for facial areas that “sag” or look less tight over time. These areas include:
- Jowls and jawline
- Brow line
- Under-eye area
- Area between nose and mouth
- Areas around corners of mouth
How Long Will A Thread Lift Last?
Since these threads can be absorbed by your skin, you can’t expect results that last a lifetime. How efficiently your skin absorbs these threads depends on several lifestyle factors. The average person can expect the threads to remain in place for roughly 1 to 3 years.
Once your skin has absorbed the threads fully, the youthful appearance provided by the treatment may remain for another three to six months thanks to the cell turnover promoted by the threads.
