Dermal Thread Lifts in Chesapeake, VA

Key Takeaways:

  • Dermal thread lifts use polydioxanone sutures to rejuvenate your youthful appearance and offer natural contouring.
  • Most patients can recover from a dermal thread facial rejuvenation procedure in a day.
  • Dermal threads combat the signs of aging by inciting new collagen production.
  • Dermal thread lifts may be a less-invasive and non-surgical option to plastic surgery.

The effects of aging will eventually hit everyone, but you don’t have to simply accept them. You can address the sagging skin around the face and the neck with minimally-invasive procedures that could leave you looking radiant and refreshed.

A dermal thread lift could be exactly what you need to feel confident and shine as the person you know you are. If you are ready for a change, it’s time for a dermal thread lift. With minimal downtime and no major incisions (like what you would find with a surgical facelift) required, getting the change you want is easier than you might think. Learn all about what a dermal thread lift can offer and discover how Dermacare can help.

What is a Dermal Thread Lift?

Think of a dermal thread lift as a minor facelift. While it is not as invasive as a facelift, it still provides a subtle lift in the skin for a more youthful appearance. The procedure works by using fine sutures to pull the skin back slightly, causing a lifted effect. This also incites a healing response to targeted areas, causing the body to direct collagen to specific areas and working to counteract the visual effects of aging with natural-looking results.

Dermal Collagen Threads

As we age, we tend to produce less collagen, but a dermal thread lift is designed to propagate collagen production. By using the body’s natural features, we can counteract the visual effects of aging by reducing looseness and strengthening the skin to help prevent the condition from getting worse.

What is the Difference Between a Thread Lift and a Facelift?

A thread lift is a minor and less-invasive version of a facelift. The central benefit of a thread lift is the reduced recovery time. A surgical facelift procedure requires heavy sedation, and aftercare requires constant care for about three days. Plus, a facelift takes about one to two weeks to heal enough to return to work.

A thread lift, meanwhile, is nowhere near as intense, with patients being able to drive themselves home immediately after the procedure.

Recovery From Thread Lifts

Recovery from thread lifts is easy, thanks to several factors working together.

  • The procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
  • Soreness, redness, and swelling are common, but most patients can return to work the following day.
  • Pain medication is rarely needed, allowing for an easy return to one’s daily routine.

Full-Face Thread Lift

A full-face thread lift is a procedure designed to target the problem areas of your entire face.

  • Utilizes temporary, dissolvable sutures to lift skin
  • Allows areas to be lifted without leaving scars or removing any tissue
  • Stimulates collagen production in the skin

Eyebrow Threading Face Lift

You can target a thread lift specifically at the eyebrow if you like.

  • Non-invasive
  • Uses barbed sutures threaded into the skin to lift the brow area and support collagen production

Neck Threading

Neck threading is designed to counteract sagging skin in the neck area.

  • Can be a solution for mild to severe neck sagging
  • There are many techniques for neck lift thread insertion, and the best for you depends on your unique skin conditions.
  • Minimum discomfort and downtime

Jowl Threading

Jowl threading focuses on the lower face and jawline for a firmer and tauter appearance.

  • The entire procedure can be performed in under an hour.
  • Does not involve repositioning of facial muscles
  • Results can last up to two years.

How Long Do PDO Threads Last?

PDO threads last approximately one year in most cases. However, this is an average time frame as the length of time is highly dependent on the patient, which areas were treated, and how aftercare was performed.

What is the Average Threading Facelift Cost in Virginia Beach?

The cost of a threading facelift in Virginia Beach tends to range between $1,000 and $2,500, though the exact cost will depend on how many threads are needed and exactly where the procedure is being performed on the face or body.
