Tightening Sagging Skin - Thread Lift

Tightening sagging skin solves many problems of aging. Your smile and beautiful face do not only comprise your teeth. They involve a youthful face and a tight neck. Dr. Elseweifi in Chicago uses thread lift and dermal fillers for skin tightening. Thread lift is a great “lunchtime” facial rejuvenation procedure that can improve the appearance of sagging skin.

What causes sagging skin?

Age, gravity, sun exposure, and repeated muscle contraction affects elasticity of the skin of the face and neck. This leads to sagging skin and wrinkles of the face, especially around the mouth, and the neck.

Thread lift is an excellent and effective technique for the tightening sagging skin

What is thread lift?

Thread lift is a procedure in which fine threads are injected into the superficial surface of the skin with no incisions or cuts. The threads are made of a material called Polydioxanone (PDO). Healing around the threads result in good skin tightening. Dr. Elseweifi uses Nova Threads.

How does thread lift cause tightening sagging skin?

In Thread lift treatment, the threads are injected into the skin in specific directions. The skin is pulled to achieve skin tightening. The skin fully absorbs the PDO threads within four to six months. During that time the skin forms new collagen. The new collagen result in tightening sagging skin.

What areas respond the best to tightening sagging skin with thread lift?

Thread lift is particularly effective for the tightening sagging skin of the lower face and neck. Tightening of sagging skin in different parts of the face and neck may require different approaches.

Thread lift is particulary effective in these areas:

  • Eyebrows can be elevated.
  • Cheeks can be lifted.
  • Lip augmentation when the lips are of good volume.
  • Jowls can be elevated and reduced.
  • Neck and jaw lines can be tightened.
  • Nefertiti Lift of the neck

Dr. Elseweifi may recommend double chin removal or dermal fillers to enhance the results of thread lift.

When will I start seeing skin tightening after thread lift?

You will see immediate improvement and some skin tightening after the thread lift treatment. Over a period of 2 to 6 months, new collagen fibers form between the threads with excellent tightening sagging skin.

How long do the results of thread lift last?

After Dr. Elseweifi in Chicago performs Thread lift for tightening sagging skin, most patients have results that last for several years. Unlike Botox, thread lift does not need frequent touch ups.
