It’s no secret that gravity and environmental factors take a toll on our skin as we age. Sagging and wrinkles can make us look older than we feel. Thankfully, there are many anti-aging treatments that can address these issues, including cutting-edge thread lifts at Beauty Medica. But do they work well for people over 50?

What are common signs of aging in people over 50?
Our skin loses some natural elasticity over time. This can lead to wrinkles and mild to moderate sagging in several areas of the face and neck, including the jowls. Signs of facial aging can cause people over 50 years old to appear tired and worn out, even if they’re actually healthy. Factors like sun exposure and smoking can make these problems even more pronounced.
Although aging is a natural process, it’s important to take steps to relieve these issues. Individuals who feel self-conscious about these problems might find thread lifts beneficial as part of their anti-aging routine in Houston.
How does a thread lift help?
A thread lift is designed to target wrinkles and loose skin in the mid-to-lower face. It works by inserting absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) sutures to lift the skin, so it looks firmer and younger. This minimally-invasive aesthetic treatment can create a youthful appearance without undergoing plastic surgery or a traditional facelift.
Although facelifts are considered the “gold standard” for facial rejuvenation, thread lifts offer many more advantages to people over 50. Some include:
Minimally-invasive: A thread lift can treat mild to moderate sagging skin without incisions or invasive measures.
Flexible options: PDO threads are made for individuals with all kinds of cosmetic goals in mind – from those who want to prevent wrinkles to those who want to alleviate known signs of aging.
No general anesthesia required: Because thread lifts don’t involve surgery, you won’t need anesthesia before treatment.
Very effective: Research has shown that thread lifts can provide wonderful results for at least several years, even in patients over 50 years old.
Almost instant results: Thread lifts can give you a lifted appearance in no time at all. No one should notice you’ve had work done after your anti-aging treatment.
What is involved with a thread lift?
Beauty Medica begins thread lifts by numbing your face with local anesthesia, so you feel comfortable during treatment. Dr. Sorkin marks the points where the PDO threads will enter and exit the tissue. We then use a thin needle to insert the thread and carefully tighten the area. Patients are excited to see an immediate difference in their appearance and confidence.
