Not only is a EuroThread lift the pinnacle in luxurious cosmetic pampering, it also provides superior results commonly associated with complex surgeries. Designed to be safe and long lasting, EuroThreads are a faster and less invasive option than traditional surgical procedures.
Just like a traditional facelift, EuroThread facelifts offer skin rejuvenation, dermis lifting, wrinkle reduction, and facial contouring. The difference is how it achieves the results. Instead of undergoing operation, threads are loaded into a needle and injected under the skin in the desired area. These threads stay seated beneath the skin and act as a support system to the face while increasing blood flow and lymphatic circulation. This, in turn, promotes collagen and elastin production, which gives skin its elastic and youthful qualities.
Each individual thread is loaded into a hollow needle and sterilized. The single needle is individually inserted and then removed, leaving the thread in place under the skin. Thread types include smooth, twisted, and barbed, and all serve a different function.
There are many benefits to a EuroThread lift over traditional methods.
Usually there is little to no downtime after the procedure, although some patients experience swelling, soreness, or minor bruising.
Yes, safer than a traditional facelift, which can often leave the patient vulnerable to infections. We only use EuroThread’s signature dissolvable threads, thus lowering the risk of infection. With permanent threads, bacteria can collect and thrive on the foreign material; with dissolving threats, the bacteria have nowhere to hide from the body's immune system.
Contour threads were first approved by the FDA in 2006; however, these threads were permanent and approval was quickly revoked. Threads were then developed using a biodegradable suture, similar to sutures used in cardiovascular surgery. In 2015, the FDA approved the sutures’ use for thread lifts.
Not usually, but some side effects are possible in relation to the technique of insertion and the type of threads used. These include surface depressions, thread migration and/or extrusion, facial asymmetry, prolonged pain, and prolonged dimpling.
All threads are not created equal, so your doctor’s training in the procedure is extremely important to ensure a good outcome with minimal side effects.
Results and patient experience may vary.
