ICONIC “LUNCHTIME” NECK THREAD LIFT IS NON-SURGICAL PROCEDURE WHEREBY TEMPORARY SUTURES ARE USED TO PRODUCE SUBTLE YET VISIBLE “LIFT” IN THE SKIN. THE THREADS ARE INSERTED BENEATH THE SKIN TO REPOSITION SAGGY SKIN OR PLUMP UP WRINKLES AND LINES.
THE THREADS USED ARE MADE FROM MATERIALS THAT ARE SAFE FOR MEDICAL SURGERIES AND PROCEDURES, WITH PDO, PCL AND PLLA BEING THE MOST COMMON TYPES. DUE TO THEIR BIO-STIMULATORY PROPERTIES, THESE THREADS CAN STIMULATE COLLAGEN PRODUCTION AND TISSUE REGENERATION WITHIN THE SKIN LAYERS AND ARE DISSOLVED AND FULLY ABSORBED BY THE BODY OVERTIME. DIFFERENT MATERIAL TAKES DIFFERENT TIME TO DISINTEGRATE.
NECK THREAD LIFTS ARE MAINLY USED TO TIGHTEN LOOSE AND SAGGY SKIN. RESULTS CAN LAST FROM AT LEAST 6 MONTHS TO 2 YEARS, DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF THREAD AND THE METHOD USED.
NECK THREAD LIFTS ARE RELATIVELY SAFE AND FAST AS COMPARED TO NECK TIGHTENING SURGERIES. NUMBING AND/OR LOCAL ANAESTHESIA OF THE TREATMENT AREA IS DONE BEFORE ANY INSERTION OF THE THREADS TO MINIMISE ANY DISCOMFORT FELT DURING THE PROCEDURE. OTHER THAN MILD SWELLING AND BRUISING AT SITE OF INSERTION AFTER THE PROCEDURE, NECK THREAD LIFTS HAVE MINIMAL DOWNTIME AND IT’S SUITABLE FOR THE GET GOERS WHO HAVE LITTLE TIME ON HAND FOR SOME SELF-MAINTENANCE.
ResultsInstant lifting and tightening of the facial area can be seen. Due to the bio-absorbable properties of the threads, stimulation of collagen production deep within the skin layer happens over time. Results can last from 6 to 36 months depending on thread material and other factors like metabolism, lifestyle and smoking.
