Looking at before and after pictures from a surgical facelift allows you to see the dramatic difference you could potentially experience if you decide to have this procedure done. However, you may be concerned about the potential downsides, like extensive recovery time or scarring. If you aren’t quite ready to have a surgical facelift performed, you may want to go the non-surgical route.
A thread lift has been referred to as a noninvasive facelift. You get many of the benefits that would come with surgery and none of the downsides. For example, you will be able to experience an instant lift because of the treatment. As your skin produces more collagen in the months after the threads are inserted, you will notice as your skin looks firmer and more youthful. You will be able to enjoy these benefits without going through an extensive recovery and won’t have to worry about potential scarring.
In most cases, a person can have a noninvasive facelift performed in less than 30 minutes. Threads that will dissolve in about six months will be gently inserted under the skin. You may have a little swelling or redness in the areas where the injections were made. This can easily be covered with a bit of makeup. After the treatment, you just get back to normal life.
You can expect the results from this non-surgical treatment to last for about a year. The collagen that is produced around the threads will be left under your skin, giving your skin natural looking plumpness.
