When it comes to facial rejuvenation, a variety of non-surgical treatments are available for helping you achieve your aesthetic goals. Whether you want to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, lift sagging facial tissue, and/or restore volume loss, Dr. Amir Nasir and our team at Lotus Cosmetic Surgery Connecticut can recommend the most beneficial treatment for your needs. Among the many solutions Dr. Nasir offers, many patients choose to get cosmetic injectables like dermal fillers or the innovative thread lift procedure. These minimally invasive options can help turn back the clock to produce a younger-looking appearance, but how do they differ?
A thread lift, such as the EuroThread Lift we perform, is often called a non-surgical facelift due to it lifting facial tissue to a more youthful position. However, unlike the surgical facelift, a thread lift works by inserting absorbable surgical threads underneath the skin, which are then gently pulled to suspend the lax tissue. In addition to the immediate lift this provides, the threads are gradually absorbed with time, which causes collagen growth for longer-lasting results.
While the thread lift repositions facial tissue, dermal fillers are designed to add subtle volume in areas to restore youthful facial contours and smooth lines and creases. Filler injections are a highly customizable solution, and they can be used for rejuvenating the cheeks, around the mouth, and in the upper face. They’re an ideal treatment for those wanting to diminish static wrinkles and improve definition in different facial areas.
The best way to determine whether a thread lift, dermal fillers, or another treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation with an experienced physician like Dr. Nasir. Some patients may be better candidates for a thread lift over dermal fillers, while others may achieve the most benefit by combining the procedures for a more noticeable transformation.
