The Blog WHO Magazine: ‘Thread It!’ – Dr Josh on Thread Lifts
When you want to know everything there is to know about thread lifts, you go to Dr Josh Wall, Medical Director Director of Contour Clinics.
And that’s exactly what WHO Magazine did, for its feature on the increasingly popular thread lift treatment, also known as the ‘non-surgical face lift’.
“If surgery scares you or the expense can’t be justified, we may just have an alternative – threads,” says WHO. “This treatment may help create what’s known as a ‘snatched jaw’.”
You know the look: sleek, sculpted and defined in the lower face – that’s the snatched jaw. But what exactly is thread lifting, how can it create this effect, and who is suitable for having this hot new treatment?
“Thread lifting is a form of non-surgical facelifting. Its goal is to reposition heaviness in the face, to lift it back up and create a youthful, natural appearance.
It’s mostly used in the lower face and the mid-face, and is mostly for people with mild to moderate degrees of skin laxity, who are still young (30 to 50 years) and trying to avoid a face lift.” – Dr Josh
Thread lifting uses threads just like the dissolvable ones you get in sutures at the hospital. However, these particular threads are a special kind that are used for cosmetic treatments, and they have tiny barbs. These barbs are what hold and lift the skin into a more aesthetically pleasing position. The threads are ‘injected’ into the fatty layer of the facial skin, which is very safe as there are no nerves or blood vessels in this area.
Where else can you have this treatment? Do threads work for other problem areas?
“We can treat any area of the face, really. We can lift the brows, the mid-face, heavy jowls and we can target the neck.” – Dr Josh
