We all want to age gracefully. Doing that involves a lot more than what one would like to believe. Even though it is important to have a skincare regime, it is not enough to prevent skin sagging from happening. Age eventually catches up. If looking to age gracefully, one of the ways to go about it is thread lift Toronto. This procedure targets the midfacial features. After the surgery, the midface would show smooth and volume results. It is a great choice for creased and sagging skin in the midface, especially with laugh lines, jowls and marionette lines. We are here to tell you all you need to know about it.

What happens in a thread lift?

Advanced Micro-suspension technology (MST) is used in the thread lift procedure to refresh the mid-face tissues. It works to activate collagen and fibrin which in turn increases the volume of the skin. Before starting the treatment, the surgeon will educate you about the procedure. Small temporary marks will be created with a pen. It is a quick procedure as it takes about 45 minutes. Local and topical anaesthesia is used for your comfort.

During the procedure, small needle openings are made. These work as the entry site for the threads. After this, the thread is put into position with the help of an insertion needle. Polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) is used for making the sutures. The thread which has been inserted has tiny knots and cones. It helps to hold the tissues in place. With time, the threads begin to break down. By this time, the body is in the place to take over. The new collagen strength will be able to hold the tissues in place.

How many threads are used during the treatment?

No one approach fits all when it comes to thread lift. The number of threads to be used varies from individual to individual. It depends on the area being targeted and the degree of lifting needed.

Who is an ideal candidate for the thread lift?

Thread lift is an excellent option for those looking to rejuvenate the mid-face with help of a minimally invasive procedure. It helps to give an immediate lift with the development of subtle volume. The ideal patients are usually between the age of 30s and 50s. Those who have undergone injectable procedures and don’t want to go through with a facelift should consider the thread lift. For one to undergo this treatment, they should have good skin tone or elasticity with mid to moderate mid-face skin sagging. However, not everyone is the ideal candidate for the procedure. During the consultation, the surgeon will help you understand the procedure and determine whether it is a good fit.
