Thread lifting and medical aesthetics: implantation methods and efficacy

Thread lifting and medical aesthetics: implantation methods and efficacy Thread lifting is an evolving procedure that is finding a firm place within the armamentarium of the modern medical aesthetic practitioner. It is a procedure that appears to be gaining recognition as a credible treatment modality, with the potential to successfully lift, contour and suspend sagging tissue of the face and neck in appropriately assessed patients. Patients opting for thread lifting can avoid a conventional surgical facelift, which is associated with considerable health risks and downtime. In this article, the author will explore an array of thread materials and outline the properties of absorbable, non-absorbable and mixed-type threads. This article will also examine the morphology, efficacy and safety profile of the materials discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Thread lifting is an evolving procedure that is finding a firm place within the armamentarium of the modern medical aesthetic practitioner. It is a procedure that appears to be gaining recognition as a credible treatment modality, with the potential to successfully lift, contour and suspend sagging tissue of the face and neck in appropriately assessed patients. Patients opting for thread lifting can avoid a conventional surgical facelift, which is associated with considerable health risks and downtime. In this article, the author will explore an array of thread materials and outline the properties of absorbable, non-absorbable and mixed-type threads. This article will also examine the morphology, efficacy and safety profile of the materials discussed.
