The thread lift is a minimally invasive alternative to a facelift. It combines a medical-grade threading material and the physical “pulling” or “lifting” of the skin to tighten the thread and reduce wrinkles. Targeted areas can include the jowls, jaw line, brow line, under eye area, forehead and cheeks. The treatment is performed by a medical professional and costs about $2,250 on average. The results of one single treatment will last about one to two years depending on the severity of the patient’s aging signs.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens facial tissue as a result of a loss in elasticity. A facelift is a more invasive, more permanent solution to aging concerns when compared to other treatments such as thread lifts and/or Botox. A comprehensive facelift, or the TLC lift, targets all areas of the face, including the neck, jowls, jaw line, brow line, under eye area, forehead and cheeks, and the treatment can tuck about ten years off of your appearance. The average cost of a facelift averages between $7,700 and $11,780, and the results should last 7-10 years or more.
