The Blog Thread Lifts Are Taking Over

If you love spending time on Instagram, then chances are you will have noticed how many people seem to be opting for thread lifts to give them a cat-eye appearance. Everyone from Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner have gone for this procedure to get that snatched look.

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift uses tiny threads to lift certain parts of your face, hence where its name comes from. It is a non-surgical brow lift, so there is minimal downtime and no painful surgery to achieve your desired look.

The threads that are used are dissolvable. The PDO or PLLA threads use either cones or barbs to hold the skin positioned once they are in place.

Before the procedure takes place, your doctor marks your skin to ensure great results and symmetry. You’ll also be given a local anaesthetic to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.

Why has it gained popularity?

Thread lifting has become a new craze among celebrities and those trying to imitate their look. Once you have had it done, you can expect it to last anywhere between 6-12 months, and this is dependent on your lifestyle. To keep your cat-eye look, you will then need to have a repeat procedure. It is best to only get this done a maximum of twice per year to avoid scar tissue and trauma.

Getting a thread lift can have an impact on your skin, and it can help keep your skin firmer even after the effects of your thread lift have worn off. The reason for this is that the thread lift stimulates the production of collagen, which is great for healthy skin. Over time, the more thread lifts that you have, the firmer your skin will become.

Other benefits

Of course, there are other reasons why thread lifting has become so popular other than the celebrity-inspired internet craze. Thread lifting can also make you appear younger and look less tired.

Over time, you may find that your eyebrows start to droop, which can make you look older. With a little help from thread lifting, it can help to turn back the clock.

It is also a quick procedure, and it only takes around 15-20 minutes to complete. You will need to take it easy for a day or two after, but that just gives you a great excuse to rest and put your feet up.
