Thread lifts are recommended for younger and middle aged patients who are not yet ready for a full facelift. A thread lift is not appropriate for patients with a large amount of loose, excess skin around the face and neck. The best candidates are men and women who are just beginning to experience the effects of ageing.
Patients who choose this course of treatment can usually postpone or eliminate the need for facelift surgery. A thread lift can be combined with other dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections by Dr Mooney for optimum results.
During a thread lift procedure Dr Mooney uses a fine needle to loop fine threads beneath the skin. The threads are inserted in a transverse pattern, where they can be raised and adjusted in order to lift the skin to a more flattering position. Each individual thread is attached to the tissues of the face, and over time, the threads become secure as the bodies own collagen begins to anchor them into place.
As a thread lift only requires a tiny opening in the skin, there is little or no scarring following treatment. The end result is a subtle, but noticeable improvement in facial contour.
