If you would like to achieve results similar to a facelift without the surgery and downtime, a thread facelift can be a great option. 7 Seas Medical Spa offers thread facelifts to residents of Evans, Columbia, Augusta, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What is a Thread Facelift?
The thread facelift is a facial rejuvenation technique that uses dissolvable threads to lift the skin and stimulate collagen production for long-lasting results. This can be a great alternative for patients who would like to avoid surgery while still achieving the rejuvenation benefits of a facelift. The threads provide an instant lift to the skin, eliminating lines and wrinkles to produce a more youthful appearance. As the body breaks down the threads, collagen production is stimulated, which works to further improve skin elasticity.
How Much Does a Thread Facelift Cost?
The cost of your thread facelift will depend on a variety of factors, including the technique used and the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is a Nova Thread Lift?
The Nova thread lift is our preferred method of thread facelift. Nova threads are made of polydioxanone, or PDO, which are safely absorbed by the body over time. PDO threads are placed into the skin using a small needle, which only requires the use of local anesthesia. As they are inserted, the threads lift the skin to produce a more youthful appearance. The Nova thread lift treatment takes less than one hour to perform.
What is a Barbed Thread Lift?
A barbed thread lift is a type of Nova thread lift with specially shaped threads. The barbed threads are ideal for lifting larger amounts of skin, producing more noticeable lifting effects in the face. These may be the best option for addressing sagging skin in the cheeks and jowls, where there are larger amounts of skin to lift.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Thread Facelift?
The results from your thread facelift will be visible immediately, as the threads provide an instant lift to the skin. As the threads are dissolved by the body, collagen production will increase to further enhance skin elasticity. As a result, patients can enjoy a rejuvenated appearance for as long as three years.
How is Recovery After a Thread Facelift?
The recovery after a thread facelift is much shorter than that of a facelift and other surgical procedures. Patients can expect minor swelling and bruising in the face for a day or two. Minor soreness may persist for a few days, but patients are usually able to return to work and other normal activities within a day or two.
