Are non-surgical facelifts painful – a deeper look into thread lifts

Do you ever find yourself looking in the mirror tugging at the skin on your face wondering if there’s a way to turn back time, without having surgery? You’re not alone. 

The good news is that you can give your face a lift, without a surgical procedure. Thread lifts are non-surgical and offer a rejuvenating solution that delivers natural-looking results without the need for invasive measures. Let’s take a closer look at what’s involved and if it’s painful. 

Thread lifts – the procedure

At The Practice, our experienced professionals can help you turn back the clock without scalpels and lengthy surgical recovery time. 

Over the years, the natural production of collagen and elastin in our bodies decreases, leading to a loss of skin firmness. A thread lift is designed to rejuvenate and tighten the skin on your face and neck, restoring a more youthful appearance.

What’s involved in the procedure? Medical-grade threads with small cones are skillfully placed beneath the skin. These threads strategically reposition and suspend the skin, gently pulling it back to achieve a firmer and lifted effect. Unlike traditional surgical facelifts, a thread lift introduces more subtle yet impactful changes.

The threads also stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This process promotes an increase in collagen production, a crucial element in combating the signs of ageing and maintaining skin firmness. In essence, a thread lift is a holistic approach that not only provides visible improvements but also encourages the skin to naturally rejuvenate itself over time.

Thread lifts – The benefits   

Thread lifts offer various benefits, making them a popular choice for facial rejuvenation. Some of these advantages include:

Immediate results: Enjoy visible improvements right after the procedure.

Quick recovery time: Experience a fast recovery period compared to traditional surgical facelifts.

Low risk of scarring: Minimise the risk of noticeable scarring, promoting a more natural outcome.

Minimally invasive: Benefit from a less invasive approach compared to extensive surgical procedures.

Affordability: Thread lifts are generally more cost-effective than surgical facelifts.

Local anaesthetic: The procedure typically requires only local anaesthesia. 

Safety and effectiveness: Considered safe with a low risk of complications when performed by experienced professionals.

Different treatment options: We offer various treatment options to suit individual needs.

Are there any downsides to thread lifts?

Not everyone qualifies for this treatment, especially those with severe cases of loose facial skin. Individuals in their late 30s to 50s experiencing early signs of ageing and seeking subtle, non-dramatic results without undergoing cosmetic surgery may find thread lifts most beneficial.

It’s important to note that thread lifts are not a permanent solution. The threads are eventually absorbed, and the results become less visible over time. The longevity of a thread lift varies between 6 months and 3 years, depending on individual factors. However, the procedure can be repeated to maintain the desired effects.

Are thread lifts painful?

While the thought of a facial procedure like this might sound painful, thread lifts are designed with your comfort in mind. At The Practice, we believe in making your experience as pleasant as possible. Our skilled professionals administer local anaesthetic to ensure you experience minimal discomfort. While some patients may encounter mild pain following the procedure, this discomfort can be effectively alleviated with over-the-counter pain relief.
