If you’ve been considering facelift surgery or a forehead lift to rejuvenate your appearance and permanently get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for Endotine Forehead lift. Unlike the ThreadLift and other types of facelift surgery, the Endotine Forehead lift is performed without sutures and can help to adjust the height and shape of the brow area to create a smooth, natural appearance.
Here’s a close look at how the Endotine Forehead lift is performed, and what its key benefits are:
How the Endotine Forehead Lift is Performed
The Endotine Forehead Lift is designed with MultiPoint Technology (MPT) and uses a sutureless process to lift and tighten the facial tissues. MPT allows the physician to create multiple points of contact with the suspended tissues, which helps to distribute tension around the face and helps to strengthen and tighten the skin. The procedure is completely customizable and adjustable, so it can address different types of skin sagging issues.
The procedure is designed to optimize the brow height and shape, and the device that holds the tissues in place remains embedded in the skin tissues. It does not need to be removed because it is made out of a bioabsorbable co-polymer.
Key Benefits of the Endotine Forehead Lift
The Endotine Forehead lift offers a number of benefits for patients of all ages. Not only can the procedure be performed quickly and efficiently, but it also provides more secure strength during the healing process. Some of the key benefits of the Endotine Forehead lift include:
Minimal excisions required – the device is suspended in the forehead without requiring excessive incisions around the hairline
Reduced tension on the scalp – unlike traditional suture-based facelifts, the Endotine forehead lift does not cause a lot of tension on the scalp, which means there is less risk of damage to the hair follicles
Tension-free closure – since there is less tension around the hairline and forehead, there is less risk of scar widening and hypertrophy.
The Endotine Forehead lift can be safely performed on most individuals, but those who have very thin bones or very thin skin may not be good candidates for the procedure. The Endotine Forehead device requires at least 3.95 mm of bone and tissue in order to be secured safely. Those with thin, atrophic scalps will not be good candidates for this procedure.
Overall, the Endotine Forehead lift procedure has been clinically-proven to offer superior fixation than traditional forehead and facelift procedures. The physician must use a specially designed drill bit and insertion tool to secure the device in place, and will achieve the best results using the Endotine Drill Bit.
The best candidates for the Endotine Forehead lift procedure are those that are not allergic to the polymer or plastic device, have thick skin around the scalp and forehead, and those that do not have thin or fragile bones.
