When it comes to giving the lips a fuller, more youthful appearance, you have plenty of options. Each of those options serves a specific purpose for plumping, hydrating or smoothing the lip area, and one of those options is a lip thread lift.
What is a lip thread lift?
A lip thread lift raises the droopy, saggy skin around the mouth that can make us look older than we really are. If your lip line has become flat or your entire smile seems to have dropped, then a lip thread lift may be right for you.
How does a lip thread lift work?
During the procedure, small PDO threads (just like those used in the face) are inserted at strategic places around the lips. Your aesthetician will decide where to place the threads and which types of threads to use. Some threads are better for defining lip borders, while others are good for correcting fine lines. Once placed, the threads will break down on their own over time, like dissolvable stitches. As they break down, the threads will stimulate new collagen production that will provide results even after the threads have dissolved.
How long does a lip thread lift last?
You can expect to see results last anywhere from six to twelve months.
What is the difference between a lip thread lift and lip fillers?
A lip thread lift raises the skin around the mouth to counteract the effects of gravity over the years. It also stimulates the body to produce new collagen in the area. On the other hand, fillers add volume and definition to lips that have become thin and deflated.
