There are many ways to fight the effects of ageing, Dr Robs thread lifts are a successful option that offers less downtime than surgery.
As we age it is natural that the tissues in our face descend due to weakening of the muscles, collagen and ligaments. As a result, fat can droop down making the face look older. Understandably, surgery can be quite a daunting experience for some and not always necessary. This is why Dr Rob is offering alternate options such as thread lifts.
What is a thread lift?
A thread lift is a technique used to lift the tissues of the face back to a position that they were at years earlier. A number of threads are placed under the skin, which grip the under surface of the facial tissue. The treads are then anchored to the skin under the hairline which holds up the face in a higher suspended position.
Are the threads permanent?
We don’t generally recommend putting permanent material in the face as it can cause an allergic reaction. Some patients worry that if the thread dissolves after three months their face will start to droop again. However, the body replaces the thread with collagen, which is the natural substance giving a youthful skin stability.
Treatments such as fillers may last on average about 6 months, the effects of a thread lift can last up to a couple of years.
Are you a candidate for a thread lift?
If you have small folds in the jowl region or where the cheek meets the upper lip, a thread lift may be an excellent option for you. This is because it can provide an instant improvement of these folds which can make people look older or more tired.
The best way to find out if this is the right treatment for you is to book in a consultation with Dr Rob. We will be able to provide you with further detail about what is involved and what the likely outcome will be.
