Saggy skin has always been the biggest concern of patients and doctors. Droopy foreheads and droopy eyelids, sunken cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jowls, loss of jawline definition and turkey necks are the forms of aging. All the efforts to age-proof ourselves, gravity and aging find us all in the end of the day.
In our 20s, sagging in the face and neck gradually creeps up on us with early signs such as of our once sculptured and defined jawline getting lost.
In our 30s, and beyond, as the face continues to descend with nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowls becoming more prominent. Sagging in the neck is also another bugbear for patients — loose skin, crepe-y skin and turkey neck — also starts making its debut in our 30s.
Botox and Filler, Laser Treatment can easily treat the small wrinkles and pigmentation which are the other signs of aging. Only medical treatment like surgical facelifts and/or necklifts really work in getting rid of saggy skin in the face and neck. Other alternatives – anti-aging creams or facial massages will only disappoint you in the end.
One of the most exciting trends in the last few years is the rise of face thread lifts which is the closest to a surgical facelift without having to go under the knife.
What is VIEW’s FINE THREAD LITFS?
VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS are the closest non-surgical alternative to a facelift. As the name suggests, very fine threads are placed under the skin to physically lift the saggy skin and saggy face tissues. One of the most exciting trends in the last few years is the rise of VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS which is the closest to a surgical facelift without having to go under the knife.
How does VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS work?
VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS lift the skin and tissues of the face and neck via a unique two pronged mechanism which allows the face thread lifts or necklift to have a continuous lift over time.
Firstly, the threads mechanically lift the skin and tissues where they have been placed during the face or neck thread lifts. These threads may also contain additional barbs and cones for additional stability and pull. Once the face or neck has been pulled, the skin and tissues that have been lifted and pulled remain in place.
Secondly, the threads used in a the face or neck thread lifts stimulate natural collagen formation by the skin and tissues in the face and neck. This additional collagen formation gives a continued improvement in the lift and pull over time and sustain the results of thread lifts.
Am I a suitable candidate for VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS?
VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS can be done to correct signs of ageing and sagging in the face and neck, especially for older patients who find that more conservative forms of non-surgical facelifts do not give an adequate pull. Younger patients in their 20 to 30s who desire a longer lasting form of a sharper jawline (aka the ‘V face’) compared to the use of Botulinum toxin are also suitable for VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS.
When placed in the cheeks, VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS can lift saggy cheeks and prominent nasolabial folds. VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS along the jawline can improve the jawline definition and improve marionette lines and jowling. When placed in the neck, loose skin and turkey necks can be pulled up to redefine the neck.
What kind of threads are used for VIEW’s FINE THREAD LIFTS?
VIEW only uses face threads which have received US FDA and European CE approval for their use. These newer threads used in face threadlifts are also dissolvable and compromise of materials such as poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and polydioxanone (PDO), which have been used as dissolvable sutures in various types of surgery for many years now. The appeal of the newer forms of face threadlifts lies in their immediate lifting with a lunch time appeal with minimal downtime. VIEW uses a number of threads that have different characteristics and shapes from each other and mix them to make the most synergy to lift up the saggy tissues and skin for the long lasting and lifting effects.
