From non-surgical treatment to an actual surgical procedure, both techniques of Thread Lift and Facelift restore youthfulness and revive ageing skin. It is true that both treatments do improve any sagging skin found on the jowls, cheeks, and neck, but they do not substitute for each other.
In this discussion, we will explain the differences between a thread lift vs a facelift to help you decide which might be the best option to correct facial ageing.
This is a surgical procedure that will tighten and lift skin due to a loss in elasticity. This procedure is a more invasive, permanent solution to ageing in comparison to the thread lift.
Many people that opt for having this procedure do so because they can afford it and have enough time to recover afterwards.
Not to be confused with a traditional facelift, the thread lift thread lift has risen in popularity due to it being non-invasive, with no downtime meaning you can go straight back to work.
A medical-grade threading material will “pull” and “lift” the skin to tighten and reduce wrinkles, without invasive surgery that requires long recovery times.
Being a low-risk procedure in comparison to a surgical facelift, the only side effects are redness, bruising, and swelling. Not only this but it only takes about 30-40 minutes to perform a thread lift and will target the following areas:
– Jowls and jawline
– Under-eye area
Thread lift vs facelift
A thread lift is less invasive than a facelift and many would say it’s a better, more cost-effective way to have a facelift, appealing to those who want a “quick fix” to their wrinkles and fine lines.
If you’re considering having a thread lift or facelift, it’s important to have realistic expectations. A facelift will not stop you from ageing altogether, however, the results will last for years. The thread lift results commonly last about 2 years and is a much more affordable option.
