Photo Credit: ShutterstockGet the lift you always wanted, with the benefit of it being nonsurgical. Thread lifting  is the non surgical facelift of our time that takes less than one hour! At H Med Spa in Chicago Wicker Park, patients come in, left and right, with the complaint of wanting to fix their mid face sagging and sagging to the neck and jawline/jowls, which most of the time can be fixed with thread lift. To learn more about the easy, minimal downtime procedure, Haute Beauty got the details from our Haute Beauty experts at H Med Spa; here's what they shared.

What is thread lifting?

A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body's "healing response" and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.

What are the indications for thread lift?

Silhouette lnstaLift is indicated for use in mid-face suspension surgery to temporarily fixate mid face sagging in the cheek sub-dermis in an elevated position.

What is the downtime of a thread lift?

The treatment also has minimal downtime with most signs of treatment (ex: bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the treatment site) dissipating within 24–48 hours.

What makes a thread lift unique?

It’s the only non-surgical rejuvenating procedure that uses advanced Micro-Suspension Technology to offer immediate and lasting results very close to a mini face lift. InstaLift is also the only absorbable suture that’s FDA-cleared for cosmetic facial procedures.

Is there anything to avoid before a thread lift?

No Smoking – drinking – and aspirin and ibuprofen products.

How can you ensure a speedy recovery?

You can take Arnica starting 2 days before the procedure and continue until swelling and bruising resolve. No touching of face for 24 hours. No exaggerated facial expressions for 2 days.

What is the longevity of a thread lift?

Instalift uses absorbable micro-cones to instantly lift aging, mid-facial skin, including sagging cheeks and deeper nasolabial folds. This procedure also activates your natural collagen production to boost volume over time for up to 2 years. That means you can achieve the look you want — without surgery or fillers.
