As a non-invasive facelift, there’s no need for general anesthesia. Technological improvements make this procedure manageable with local anesthesia for minimal discomfort.
During the treatment, the surgeon will go about lifting the skin by making small punctures where the thread will be placed. They will also outline the placement path of the thread to create the best lift for the patient’s facial tissues.
The threads will then tighten the skin, reduce lines and wrinkles for full facial rejuvenation.
Altogether, the procedure usually lasts for about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated.
Threads can be placed through the cheeks, brow, and forehead area, and around the neck to give the same benefits as a surgical facelift. Hyaluronic acid can also be added around the treatment area to add further volume and elasticity to the face.
