Three amazing things you can do with threading
Thanks to gravity and our skin’s gradual loss of collagen, we can all expect our faces to sag at some point. Still, just because Father Time is pulling it down, it doesn’t mean it has to stay there. Threading is a brilliant non-invasive procedure that involves inserting surgical-grade polydioxanone (PDO) threads underneath the surface of the skin. These are strategically placed to create a lifting effect that lasts for around 4 to 6 months before dissolving. This doesn’t mean you lose your new look, however. As the very placement of the threads stimulates your skin to produce more collagen, you’ll get to enjoy a firmer look that lasts long after the threads are gone.
Something else that’s great about threads? There’s a lot you can do with them. Here are just three ways PDO threads can be uses to create a more youthful look as well as change the shape of your features.
Threads to creating a tighter jaw line
When jowls begin to make their appearance they’re usually not very welcome. Fortunately, a few cleverly placed threads can help lift them up and away. Still, many patients who don’t have sagging cheeks are seeking out thread lifts to create a tighter-looking jaw line.
The threads are inserted into the cheeks and chin and then pulled tight with the results being a slimmer-looking face with a better defined jaw. This can be enhanced even further with a little bit of filler in the chin to create a more “V-shaped” face that narrows to a point.
Threads to lift your brow
If you’ve started to notice that your brow is drooping, you’ll be glad to know that threads can lift them back up. Typically, these are inserted in the area just above the brow and the top of the forehead. Your doctor will then be able to tighten the threads to create the desired lifting effect.
A quick and easy lunch break procedure with no down time, thread lifts are also becoming popular with younger patients whose brows have yet to droop, but they’re wanting to create a more wide-eyed look like supermodel sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid.
Threads to enhance your nose
A 3D Rhinoplasty procedure involves injecting dermal filler and inserting specially designed threads to change the shape of a nose. The dermal filler can build up a flattened nasal bridge; heighten it in a way that smooths out a bump and change the shape of the tip. As for the threads, these can heighten and refine the nasal bridge, straighten slight deviations and even lift a drooping tip.
What’s great about this procedure is that it doesn’t require the removal of any vital nasal cartilage that could have an impact on your ability to breath properly later on down the line. As the procedure can “add” to your nose or pull what exists in a new direction, it’s effects limited. For example, if you wanted to make your nose smaller then it wouldn’t be for you. However, if you are a candidate, you’ll be able to “top up” your filler and replace your threads whenever necessary to easily maintain your new look.
