Thread Lift

Non-Surgical Facial Lifting



As we age, gravity and muscle action create changes in the tension and elasticity of facial skin. This leads to sagging skin, wrinkles, creases and deep grooves around the mouth and in the forehead. Many patients are concerned with correcting these outward signs of aging as well as other physical imperfections in the facial area.

or many patients treatment with soft tissue fillers, such as collagen, Restylane and Radiesse, can be inefficient and require repeat treatments. This is because these patients need more than soft tissue replacement, but are not ready for a full facelift.

Threadlift
Many physicans now offer a new, more economical, non-surgical procedure called a Threadlift which can give a lasting lift to sagging facial tissues without the expense and prolonged recovery of a full facelift. The procedure is safe, simple, conservative and leaves no visible traces of the procedure on the skin. It can make a patient look five to seven years younger.

How does Threadlift work?
The Threadlift uses a patented suture material called APTOS thread made of Proline. The unique feature of this suture is the hundreds of tiny barbs that are laser cut all over its surface. The procedure is done using local anesthesia and can take from thirty minutes to one hour. Your doctor gently threads the APTOS suture through your sagging tissues and then retracts it. This gentle retraction causes the barbs to lock onto and lift the sagging tissues, allowing your doctor to reposition them under the skin. Once in position, your body begins generating new collagen around each barb to hold them in place.




LiposuctionWhat about scars?
Since the procedure is performed with needles there are no incisions and therefore no visible scars.

How long do the results last?
Most Threadlift patients are happy with their results which are holding tightly after about five years.

What is recovery like?
Following a Threadlift downtime is minimal. You probably  won't even need bandages. However you may want to apply some ice to reduce swelling. Most patients assume full normal activities in two to three days

To find out if you could be a candidate for a Threadlift,
please schedule a consultation with our doctor.


Who are the best candidates for a Threadlift?Liposuction
The best candidates are patients with
Mild to moderate sagging of soft tissues of the face  and neck
Premature aging and sun damage
Weakly pronounced aesthetic features and contours
A flaccid, flat face

How long does the procedure take?
The procedure only takes about
thirty minutes and is performed
using local anesthesia.

How many treatments will I need?
One treatment is all that is needed.

What areas respond the best to a Threadlift?
Eyebrows can be elevated
Cheeks can be lifted
Jowls can be elevated and reduced
Neck and jaw lines can be tightened

How does a Threadlift differ from a conventional facelift?
A Threadlift is a much less invasive procedure. As a result, it only requires local anesthesia so there is much less risk and no recovery due to the general anesthesia that is required for a facelift. A Threadlift is done on an out-patient basis in your doctor's office. And the final difference is that a Threadlift is much less expensive than a facelift.
