Thread Lifts

What is a thread lift and how does it work?

Thread lifts is a procedure for skin tightening or lifting where absorbable threads are used to stimulate collagen in the skin.

What can I expect?

Tighter and firmer skin. Some amount of contouring and skin lifting is achieved as well.

What is the procedure like?

Topical anesthesia cream is applied on the area to be treated for 20 minutes. After preparing your skin, Dr Ashwini inserts the threads along the direction of the desired lift into various parts of the face. The threads dissolve within a period of 3 weeks to a month.

When do I see the results?

Results are instant.

How long does the results lasts?

Depending on the number of sittings and frequency of treatment which will be decided by Dr Ashwini Salunke during consultation (and maybe altered as the treatment progresses), results may last up to a year.

What can go wrong?

When inserted wrongly or in the wrong plane, the thread under the skin may be visible. There can be temporary bruising. Infection is a rare chance, if due care is not taken. The thread on rare occasions can be rejected and thrown out of the skin too.
