There was a time when the only option for men and women seeking deep facial rejuvenation was facelift surgery, which included time to recover. A threadlift is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift to lift aging, sagging skin and trigger your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin for a naturally refreshed, younger look. At Accents we try to provide the highest quality threadlift Detroit has to offer.
What is a Threadlift Facelift?
There are so many wonderful things that come with advancing in years: wisdom, patience, and kindness. Not all of age’s gifts are so lovely. As you age, your skin will begin to reveal your years. Lines and creases, skin laxity, and loss of volume make you appear tired and older than you feel. Until recently, reversing the signs of aging often meant going under the knife to lift aging skin. With a MINT PDO Threadlift, you can lift loose, sagging skin to a more youthful position, restoring your look and giving you the boost in confidence that improves your quality of life.
How is a Threadlift performed?
A threadlift is performed using specialized, dissolvable sutures with tiny barbs that gently lift the skin of the face and neck back to its youthful position. Instead of surgically removing loose facial skin as is the case in a surgical facelift, the skin is gently lifted from within, smoothing lines and creases and restoring the contours of the brow, cheeks, jawline, and neck.
This lifting action creates the appearance of facial tightening, while stimulating your body’s immune system to “come to the rescue,” increasing the production of collagen and elastin deep within your skin layers. Increased amounts of these vital compounds restore facial volume, naturally plumping your skin.
What are the benefits of a Threadlift?
Collagen and elastin are important in the maintenance of supple, youthful skin. As you age, your body loses its ability to produce these compounds in the same quantities that it did in your youth. This leads to thinner skin, with loss of volume and firmness. A threadlift facelift encourages your body to resume a higher level of production of collagen and elastin, creating firmer, more supple skin. A threadlift provides other benefits including:
- Rejuvenates facial skin
- Provides more pleasing facial contours
- Restores volume and firmness
- No scars
- No downtime
- No invasive surgery
What can I expect during my Threadlift?
Your threadlift will be performed in our state-of-the-art facility while you rest comfortably. Dr. Berkowitz will numb the treatment area by injecting a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. Then, the MINT PDO threads will be placed using a microneedle to guide the threads into the correct position for a very natural, fresh, lifted look. Since there are no incisions, there will be no noticeable scars. The procedure takes only about one hour to perform.
What is the recovery Threadlift performed?
You may experience mild to moderate swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the treatment site which subsides within days. Most patients find they are able to return to work the day following a threadlift treatment. Light activity can be resumed the day following your procedure. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise for two to three weeks after your treatment.
It is important that you not rub vigorously while cleansing your face or applying skincare products for at least one week following treatment. You should sleep with your head elevated for the first few days to avoid putting pressure on your face, so the lifting threads can settle correctly into place.
Will my results be long-lasting?
You will notice immediate lifting benefits from your threadlift facelift, which will gradually increase over time. The duration of your results is determined by several factors including the severity of skin laxity at the time of your procedure. Results from a threadlift facelift typically last between one and three years.
