Aging is a natural part of life, and with it comes skin that isn’t as bouncy or firm as it was in your youth. While getting older and wiser is worth celebrating, sagging skin—especially in your cheeks or forehead—can dampen your confidence and how you perceive yourself. Impressions Face + Body offers thread lift procedures to give you the radiance and facial support to leave you feeling rejuvenated in no time.

What Is a Thread Lift?
Thread lift treatments involve the placement of threads of surgical suture material just beneath the skin. Once in place, these threads lift and support the skin from below. They fill in facial lines and folds to restore the patient’s youthful facial contours. They also jumpstart collagen production, which further renews the skin.
After they’ve helped rebuild the infrastructure beneath the skin, the threads dissolve naturally and safely. This usually happens after about six months.

How to Prepare for Your Thread Lift
During Your Thread Lift Procedure
Thread lifts are a simple, straightforward treatment that is often performed in less than an hour. We’ll start by cleansing and numbing the treatment area and making a few marks on your skin that will guide us as we work. We’ll then use a needle to lay several threads just below the skin's surface in the treatment area.
The way that we place the threads and the shape of the threads that we use will depend on what your cosmetic goals are. Spiral-shaped threads, for example, are an excellent choice for building facial volume. Rough-hewn threads that resemble the shape of barbed wire are ideal for hooking into loose skin and lifting it, and smooth threads injected in a mesh-style pattern serve as a framework for collagen to grow on, plumping and firming the skin.

Thread Lift Benefits
Apart from being non-invasive, ensuring a quicker recovery period, thread lifts effectively rejuvenate the skin, addressing various signs of aging. The process not only brings back youth and vitality to your skin but also enhances the natural beauty of your eyes, smile, and other facial features by lifting sagging skin. One standout feature of the treatment is the gradual and natural results. Over the course of six months, your skin sees improvement without the overt signs of a procedure.
What sets this treatment apart is its customizability. No two thread lifts are alike. Whether you're primarily concerned about sagging cheeks or lined skin on your neck, the treatment can be tailored to address your specific needs. Another significant benefit is the natural-looking results; with improvements that develop gradually over six months, you'll never appear as if you've had work done.
