Thread Lifting for Youthful Skin at Refine Uganda

Thread Lifting

Thread Lifting is a minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable, barbed sutures to offer a tighter, more youthful aesthetic appearance to the face and neck. It works by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin in order to produce healthier, firmer skin. It can also mechanically lift tissues where the barbed sutures are placed.

What causes skin sagging?

As we get older, our bodies gradually produce less and less collagen, which leads to an 80% reduction in skin thickness by about age 70. This loss of volume and strength is a large factor in the creation of excess skin and wrinkles. As the skin grows weaker, it’s no longer able to support the tissues beneath it adequately, meaning that gravity pulls it downwards and stretches it.

How Thread Lifting works

Temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the specialist simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.

What does Thread Lifting treat?

· Early loosening of the facial structures

· Jowls

· Sagging eyebrows

· Premature loosening of the neck skin

Why choose Thread Lifting?

· Reduced recovery time compared to surgery. Patients can drive themselves home and look after themselves immediately after having their procedure.

· Due to the non-invasiveness, Thread Lifting is low risk with virtually no risk of scarring, severe bruising, bleeding.

· If one experiences irritation, infection or their sutures becoming visible under their skin, they can simply be removed and the patient’s face will return to its prior state.

· Because thread lifts are much easier to perform than facelift surgery, they are much more affordable.
