Who is a Candidate?
Healthy individuals who wish to tighten or lift loose or lax facial skin but do not wish to undergo a traditional facelift may be able to benefit from a Euro Thread Facelift. A consultation with Dr. Chao is the best way to determine if this treatment option is right for you.
The Euro Thread Facelift Procedure
During treatment, a single needle or cannula that contains a thread is individually inserted into the dermis, and upon removal, the thread is left in place. Depending on the thread type, the thread is either left in place to promote collagen production or is pulled in an intended direction to product an appearance commonly associated with lifting. This process is repeated in the areas of concern on the face and neck
These treads are individual biodegradable, surgical sutures that are pre-inserted into a needle or cannula. Attached to them are tiny cones, which lift and tighten from underneath the skin. Euro Threads are completely absorbable, so they will naturally dissolve over time.
Results and Recovery
Following your Euro Thread Facelift, patients can see immediate results in the treatment area, with continued improvement for up to 2-3 months.
There is a slight chance of infection or bruising at the injection site and a possible but rare chance for thread extrusion. Results will vary and can last anywhere from 18 months to two years. Additional threads can be used to maintain results.
