24K Gold Thread Facelift – Your Next Spa Treatment?

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on September 8, 2008

A Japanese beauty company has unveiled a unique facelift treatment designed to reduce wrinkles, tighten up the skin and even boost collagen production – all with the power of 24 Karat Gold.

The facial treatment costs nearly $3,000, and involves inserting permanent gold threads directly under the skin.  This encourages the facial tissues to produce more collagen as a result of the injury to the skin.

The threadlift technique is already used as a mini-facelift, but this treatment is different than the conventional facelift because of the golden threads used to create the ‘mesh’ framework.  Gold threads are implanted into the skin to create an invisible net; this helps support the skin tissues while strengthening the skin fibers.

The gold facelift only requires local anesthetic, and the procedure can be performed in a few hours. TrendHunter.com reports that the same process can be used to tighten up the skin on the hands, legs, abdomen and buttocks.
