Today’s most groundbreaking cosmetic treatments give us a way to turn back the clock, dealing with even the most distinct signs of aging without the invasive, involved treatments of even a decade ago. There’s one prime example: Instead of getting a surgical facelift — and dealing with its month-long recovery period — more and more people are opting for a thread lift.
With a thread lift, Dr. Peymon Zarreii helps patients defy gravity with a minimally invasive procedure he can perform right here at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics in Delray Beach, Florida. If you’re interested in a way to lift and tighten your skin without going under the knife, a thread lift might be for you.
How thread lifts work
Before your thread lift, Dr. Zarreii talks with you about your cosmetic goals. You can point out any areas that are bothering you, like drooping brows or sagging jowls. Then, assuming a thread lift is the right option for your specific issues, Dr. Zarreii can personalize a thread lift treatment plan for you.
During your treatment, he uses a specialized hollow needle called a cannula to place the threads for your thread lift. Once in place, the thread lifts and anchors the skin in the area, giving you a tighter, more youthful appearance.
The threads Dr. Zarreii uses were chosen with your safety in mind. Specifically, thread lifts use polydioxanone (PDO) threads, the same ones used for absorbable surgical sutures. That means these threads are proven to be safe for your skin.
But, wait — if the thread for your lift is absorbable, won’t the effects fade once the thread does? No. That’s because when Dr. Zarreii places the thread, it triggers a healing response in your skin.
The area where the thread is placed starts to build a new network of collagen, the protein that keeps your skin taut and supple. By the time your skin absorbs the thread, that collagen support structure is in place. As a result, the results from a thread lift can last up to three years.
What to expect with a thread lift
Another reason people love thread lifts is that they’re convenient. The risk of adverse reactions is extremely low and getting your thread lift can be a quick process, so much so that Dr. Zarreii performs them for many patients over their lunch breaks.
You may have some bruising or swelling right after your thread lift, but most after-effects can be covered with makeup so you can get back to the next activities on your agenda right after your treatment.
