Nonsurgical Thread Lift Glasgow
A thread-lift is not a face-lift. A face-lift is a surgical procedure (there are many varieties) which is much more substantial in terms of cost and recovery time, but also in terms of effect. The ideal age-group to consider a thread-lift is adults between 35 and 55 years. Occasionally older people may benefit, but ultimately it is not the age, rather the tissue quality that will determine whether an individual is suitable for a thread-lift or would be more appropriately managed by a surgical procedure.
The PDO variant is immensely popular in Korea and the benefits can now be found around the world.
There are 3 types of threads:
- Basic – Straight pieces of unaltered thread. We use many of these to form a ‘net’ in the desired area. Over time, these are broken down completely, at the same time producing new collagen and an improvement in the texture, tone and quality of the skin
- Screws – Straight pieces of thread are coiled into a spring shape. The result is a thread which provides more surface area contact over a given length while at the same time giving a gentle lift.
- Cogs/Barbs – These threads have little cuts made at angles along their length, the resultant barbs or cogs actually holding the tissue and giving a stronger mechanical lift. As with the threads above, the material (PDO) is slowly broken down and new collagen formation stimulated
