Sometimes, you might require a more significant level of rejuvenation than non-surgical treatments can provide.
However, if you’re not ready for a surgical facelift, then a thread lift can be an excellent option. The Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally-invasive treatment option that uses biocompatible, specially-shaped sutures to lift the skin from underneath and stimulate collagen production.
Patients with visible signs of aging are often the best candidates for a thread lift. Often, our Bellevue thread lift patients have tried injectables like Botox or dermal fillers but aren’t achieving the rejuvenating results they want. However, a facelift may be too invasive, or they may not be a good candidate for facial surgery.
In this case, a great alternative is a thread lift Bellevue facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ort can determine your best opetions. It’s important to have sufficient skin elasticity to find good results with a thread lift. Signs of aging that a thread lift can effectively address include jowls, sagging cheeks, and a sagging neck.
During a treatment session, specialized sutures are inserted just under the skin using tiny incisions. Once the threads are placed under the skin, they are lifted upwards. The textured ‘cones’ along the thread grab onto the underlying tissue and suspend it upwards, holding it in place over time as the sutures safely absorb into the body. The threads are completely discreet underneath the skin and most patients don’t even feel them in place. A thread lift can often be combined with additional non-surgical treatments like injectables or skin care treatments for best results.
Recovery from a Thread Lift is minimal, but you may require a day or two off of work or social events. You’ll likely experience some swelling and bruising, but this usually subsides quickly. You’ll see your results begin to emerge in the days following the procedure as you recover. Most Seattle thread lift patients see results that last for two to three years after treatment, making it an excellent, long-term option for facial rejuvenation.
