woman looking at mirrorThreadlifts, when performed by skilled aesthetic professionals, can achieve a lifted and refreshed look. Do-it-yourself or “at home” threadlifts are a growing trend among people looking to achieve cosmetic improvements while saving some money compared to a medical spa treatment. However, it is important to understand that these types of procedures can be highly ineffective, and may even be dangerous. Let’s take a look at why.

Safety First

First off, by their very nature, do-it-yourself threadlifts are performed by a person lacking medical expertise – namely, you. For safe and satisfying results, a threadlift requires a high level of skill and knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the face. Without the proper training and expertise, there is a risk of serious harm, including infections, nerve damage, and scarring.

Another reason why do-it-yourself threadlifts are not recommended is the lack of proper equipment and sterile conditions. Medical-grade equipment is necessary for a safe and effective procedure. At-home threadlifts are often performed using non-sterile equipment, which can increase the risk of infection and other complications.

Also keep in mind that you don’t get access to follow-up care with at-home threadlifts. When you have a Silhouette InstaLift™ threadlift in our office, we can monitor the progress of your recovery and address any concerns promptly.

Quality of Results

Even when you set aside these scary safety risks, do-it-yourself threadlifts simply lack the precision and effectiveness of a professionally performed procedure. We are able to precisely place the threads to achieve the desired results. Most at-home kits are not very high quality, and will not provide sufficient guidance on how to properly place the threads for the most natural appearance.

When you do the math, at-home threadlifts can easily be more expensive in the long run. While the initial cost may be lower, the need for repeated procedures can quickly add up. Additionally, the cost of correcting any issues or complications that arise from an at-home procedure can be much higher than the cost of a professionally performed procedure.
