The Blog New Idea: ‘Top Treatment! Thread Lifting’
For its ‘Top Treatment’ focus, Australian magazine New Idea quizzed our Medical Director Dr Josh on the procedure that transforms your jawline – thread lifting!
This is one hotly desired treatment, as it works to create results that are comparable to a facelift, but without any surgery. This is a non-invasive treatment method that manages to lift sagging skin from beneath the surface, and also doesn’t require any volume to be added.
What is this sorcery? How can you get a facelift-like result with only a few injections?
The threads are ‘injected’ into the surface of the skin at precise points, from which they will run for the length of the face beneath the skin.
“The threads we use are made of the same material as stitches or sutures, so it’s something that’s been used in surgery for about 50 years.” – Dr Josh
These threads have tiny little barbs that work to ‘grip’ the skin from beneath the surface and thereby have pulling power to lift sagging skin back upwards.
“It works by placing a thread into the fatty layer of the facial skin, which is very safe as there are no nerves or blood vessels in this area.” – Dr Josh
Sounds incredible, doesn’t it. Here at Contour Clinics, we know how effective thread lifting is for anyone concerned with noticeable skin laxity, drooping skin, deep-set lines such as marionettes and nasolabial folds, and of course the dreaded jowls. However, the possibilities are near endless!
“We can lift the brows, the mid-face, heavy jowls, and we can target the neck. There’s also been use of threads in the body as well.
Apart from the hands and feet, there’s not really any area on the body that we can’t treat and tighten the skin.” – Dr Josh
