Thread Lift vs Facelift Sydney
With the emergence of new cosmetic medical techniques, traditionally invasive facelifts may no longer be necessary to treat the appearance of sagging or dull skin.
Have you noticed that the delicate skin on your face has begun to sag? Whether due to age, genetics or environmental factors, the skin on our faces loses elasticity and volume over time. Facelifts have been a traditional fix for this issue, however many people don’t want to undergo this heavily invasive surgery. Thanks to developments in cosmetic medical technology and techniques, you can now experience the effects of a facelift without the need for invasive surgery techniques. It’s called a Thread Lift. At Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine in Sydney, our medical professionals are highly trained and experienced in performing this technique and we have an array of satisfied patients.
A Thread Lift is basically exactly as it sounds. It involves the use of threads to lift the contours of your skin into a more aesthetically pleasing position. The threads are inserted from the scalp down toward the chin and jawline. Small cogs in the thread grip the surrounding tissue allowing the face to be lifted back into its original position. Because of the technicality of the procedure, it is vitally important that it is performed by a qualified and experienced cosmetic medical practitioner.
There are a range of benefits that a thread lift offers over a traditional facelift. Some of them include:
- Less invasive than a traditional facelift
- Less risk involved
- Is a discreet procedure and scarring is virtually invisible.
- Can be used when skin sagging is not severe enough for a face lift.
- Shorter treatment time; can be performed in 1-2 hours.
- Because of the shorter treatment time, the procedure is often less expensive than a traditional facelift.
- Less down time involved
- Can be performed under local anaesthetic which allows for a quicker recovery time.
The cost of thread lift depends on the areas of the face being treated and how many threads need to be used. One of our highly qualified medical staff will be able to determine the cost and your suitability for the procedure.
