The rise of noninvasive procedures has shifted the aesthetic culture. Patients now are asking for less invasive, less painful, less expensive procedures with short recovery times. Thread-lifts are one of the newest approaches to nonsurgical facial lifting & tightening.
It is an easy, fast, in-office procedure in which absorbable barbed or unbarbed suture thread is inserted into the skin through a very small incision, for the purpose of full-face rejuvenation & lifting. The latest techniques can even provide lifting for nose region, rejuvenation of the under-eye area, as well as the correction of the lip border lines.
Similar to fillers that provide a “liquid face-lift,” the downtime is minimal. Offering thread lifting for your practice is a natural progression of services needed for a successful aesthetic practice as these procedures are gaining significant popularity among patients day by day.
The cost of thread lifting procedure costs an average 1,500 - 4,000 USD and can easily be incorporated with your other aesthetic offerings in the practice. The cost to incorporate thread lifting within your practice is relatively small as it is heavily technique based procedure. And, Patient satisfaction concerning this new procedure is very high because of the results that are able to be achieved.
