look as good as you feel
When looking at yourself in the mirror do you instantly notice problem areas around your lower face, neck, and chin? Has your skin started to sag and lost the firmness it once had? You may already be researching medical procedures that can target these problem areas. After all, it’s better to get ahead of the situation than to let it drag on and become worse over time. A traditional facelift may be something you’re considering, but before you pick up the phone and contact a board-certified plastic surgeon, know there are other options available to you. One, in particular, that may be of interest, is a thread lift in Charlotte.
Of course, before you fully invest yourself in any procedure, such as a thread lift in Charlotte, it’s best you have a clear understanding of exactly what all it entails and what you should expect.
Ideal Patients For A Thread Lift in Charlotte
Thread lifts offer the best results for people who are just starting to notice sagging and droopy skin. If the skin is drooping an excessive amount it may be best to consider the more traditional means of a facelift. However, if what you are experiencing is mild to moderate laxity and you’re being as proactive as possible, then a thread facelift may be the perfect treatment for you. The best way to know for sure is to schedule an appointment for an in-person consultation. This allows a board-certified plastic surgeon or master nurse injector to assess your target area of concern and provide a personal overview of not only the ideal treatment methods but also advise on the results you can expect from the treatments.

What Happens With A Thread Lift
A Thread Lift is a non-surgical procedure meant to address laxity or mild sagging of the mid to lower face. NovaThreads are FDA-approved, PDO (Polydioxanone) absorbable sutures that smooth, tighten, and lift your skin. The threads are tiny sutures placed directly under the skin to stimulate your body to build collagen in the treatment areas. When the threads are placed, they lift the skin in order to tighten it to its more natural and youthful place. The results are instant, last for years, and the best part? No scars!
Are There Any Side Effects?
This is an extremely minimal procedure. The specially designed threads are inserted and secured in the targeted treatment area. The slight trauma caused by this will result in a natural increase of collagen production by your skin. Due to the slight trauma the skin experiences, you may see some redness, minor swelling or bruising, all normal responses, and will go away shortly. You can go about your day as soon as you leave our practice — no downtime!
How Long Does It Take?
This is a quick procedure. While the exact time will depend on the target area and how many threads will be utilized, traditionally most treatments take approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Additionally, because the procedure is minimal, with no downtime, you can go right back to your normal daily activities.
What to Avoid Following Your Procedure
Following the thread lift, you’ll want to avoid rubbing and scratching at the area. It may feel a bit weird at first as the skin will be tighter than what you’re accustomed to, but after a few days, it will all feel normal. You will also want to avoid any heavy sweating, at least for a day or so. You’re not going to break any threads or cause problems. It’s just the sweating might cause some subtle irritation at first, but that will go away after a short period, and you can go back to the gym and any other activities you enjoy following the thread facelift.
