Instant Thread Lift Treatment for sagging skin

  • Instant non-surgical lower face lift
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Safe and fully dissolvable medical threads
  • Local anesthesia only
  • Results last up to 18 months

Is your skin sagging due to aging or weight loss? The Thread Lift Facelift is a comfortable, non surgical treatment to instantly lift skin on the face, neck and body. Medical grade threads are inserted deep below the skin and have fine protrusions (barbs) to hold them in place. Physician skill and proper placement prevents the overdone, unnatural appearance often seen with surgical facelifts. The threads create an inflammatory response within the skin that stimulates your own body to create new collagen—the building block of young, healthy, tight skin. The threads are designed to dissolve naturally, and the new collagen formed in their place, continue to lift the skin for 6-18 months. Leave our office looking instantly better—with lifted skin and better facial contours.

Who is this treatment for?

This is a popular procedure for anyone whose elasticity is compromised. Elasticity is the ability of the skin to “bounce back.” As we age we lose collagen and elastin and our skin becomes thinner, less taut and begins to sag. The thread lift is ideal for mild to medium loose, droopy or saggy skin through the mid or lower face and neck. It is also popular to smooth out wrinkles that are deepening due to gravity. It is minimally invasive, safe, and is a great alternative to a surgical face lift without the pain, recovery time, risk, or expense of more invasive procedures. Results are natural and help to preserve your youthful facial contours longer.

Mid and Lower Face

As we age and our skin loses its natural elasticity, our cheeks sag and our smile lines become deeper. Lines form at the corners of the mouth and run downward, and jowls form along the jawline. The Thread Facelift pulls the skin in an upward motion to smooth out lines naturally and creates a firm and lifted appearance to counteract the look of sagging, loose skin.

Neck area

The neck is one of the most neglected areas of our body. While we pamper and protect our faces, the neck is often ignored until it’s too late. Because the skin on the neck is thin and fragile, it is prone to sagging, horizontal bands (rings) that become deep with time, and crepey skin. By inserting threads in the lower face, the neck is tightened along with the lower face for smoother, firmer contours. The neck has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to treat—and the Thread Lift shines in this area.

Non Surgical Nose Lift

This is a popular procedure for anyone whose nose tilts downward or to create taller nose bridge. Strategic placement of a thread instantly lifts a droopy or downward facing nose; giving a natural lift for a perky nose and improved profile.

FAQ

How Does the Thread Lift Facelift Work?

The Thread Lift uses medical grade threads that are fully dissolvable and safe. These threads are also used for cardiac surgery bypass grafting. The threads are inserted deep below the skin via a specially designed needle to uplift sagging skin. The threads create an inflammatory response within the skin and new collagen begins to form to further tighten the skin and create a “scaffold” effect to prolong your lift once the threads have dissolved. The treatment is painless and is usually completed in 30 minutes to 1 hour with minimal to no downtime.

What is the Recovery Time Following a Thread Lift Treatment?

As this is a nonsurgical procedure, recovery time is minimal. You can have the treatment done and usually return to work within 24 hours. Possible side effects include mild swelling and bruising that is easily covered with makeup. The face is numbed prior to treatment and patients report that it is comfortable. Treatment time lasts between 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the number of threads used. It is advised that you sleep on your back and avoid exercise for the first 3-5 days.

How many threads will I need?

Depending on the area and the degree of sagging—anywhere between 6 to 30 threads may be used. Schedule a consultation with one of our three board certified medical doctors for a personalized assessment.
