If you’d like to have firmer, tighter skin, but the thought of having a surgical face-lift worries you, consider a mesh contour thread lift. This procedure offers impressive results without pain, anesthesia, or a long recovery. Board-certified surgeon Pekka Soini, MD, and his team at Hermosa Cosmetic Center in Chicago, Illinois, perform mesh contour thread lifts that firm, tighten, and smooth your skin. To learn how a thread lift can give you a boost of confidence, call Hermosa Cosmetic Center, or book an appointment online today.
A mesh contour thread lift, also known as a PDO thread lift, is a procedure that uses surgical sutures to lift and tighten facial skin. The threads also stimulate the production of new collagen in the treated area.
Collagen gives youthful skin its firmness and strength, but collagen production declines as you get older. By replenishing collagen, a thread lift has a rejuvenating effect on the elasticity and volume of older skin.
Unlike full cosmetic surgery, a thread lift doesn’t require the removal of excess skin. The threads eventually dissolve, but due to the replenished collagen, a mesh contour thread lift offers results that can last up to three years.
You may qualify for a thread lift at Hermosa Cosmetic Center if you’re generally healthy and you have concerns such as the following:
A thread lift can also lift and smooth skin on the neck and chest. Depending on your personal goals, your provider at Hermosa Cosmetic Center may recommend combining dermal fillers with a mesh contour thread lift for optimal anti-aging results.
A thread lift doesn’t require anesthesia or recovery time. During the procedure, your provider at Hermosa Cosmetic Center uses a long, sterile needle to place the threads underneath your skin. To complete the treatment, your provider gently pulls the threads, elevating, and tightening your skin.
You may experience some mild swelling following your thread lift; this should subside within a few days.
Compared to a surgical face-lift, a thread lift holds minimal risk. However, there is some risk of irritation or infection, or of the sutures showing beneath the skin. Removing the threads can address all of these concerns.
