Threads provide gentle lifting for patients who want to treat facial sagging but are not ready for a surgical facelift. Their presence under the skin stimulates collagen production around the thread, ultimately providing variable levels of lift.
They are made from the same material as absorbable stitches and break down over 6 – 18 months depending on what type of filler is used. Despite this being a ‘lunch time’ procedure, swelling and bruising is a possibility and your schedule should allow for this.
Doctor Bianca has been working with absorbable threads since they first entered the South African market. She has seen the best results when they are combined with wrinkle injections and dermal filler. The ideal candidates are patients in their 30’s, 40’s and early 50’s.
