Do you look in the mirror and push up your facial skin in the mirror? Be honest.

We’ve all done it. At some point, we all wish our facial skin was lifted nice and tight. That loose, sagging skin annoys us all at some point, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be facial skin. What about the abdomen? The skin above our knees? Our love handles. That annoying loose skin is everywhere.

Thanks to recent advances in aesthetic medicine technology, now there’s a way to lift that loose skin into a tighter, more youthful looking appearance.

This is accomplished with newly advanced aesthetic threads, which when placed with a minimally invasive procedure, provide a subtle, yet effective, lifting of the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is thread lift?

The procedure is accomplished using a minimally invasive technique, where our providers place specially formulated threads at a superficial depth beneath the skin, and use the texture of the sutures to provide a gentle, yet effective, lifting of the treated skin. The threads are made up of a safe, dissolvable suture material, very similar to all other sutures used to close interior surgical wounds. Using this technique avoids the longform recovery and risks of a traditional face or body lift. Patients return to normal activities almost immediately following the procedure.

Our medical director, Leon Tcheupdjian, MD, and our threading specialist, Leslie Forrester, APRN, like to refer to the treatment as The Dynamic Duo, because the procedure yields these two key results:

1) Immediate, lasting lifting of the face, neck or eyebrow

2) Stimulate your skin to regenerate your natural collagen production that has ceased as a result of aging and hormonal decline.

Lifted, volumized, rejuvenated and youthful appearance of the face or body.

The threads are made of an absorbable suture material called polydioxanone (PDO), or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), or a blend of PLLA and polyglycolic acid (PGA), all of which are FDA-approved. These threads are inserted with a blunt cannula underneath the skin’s surface, to lift, support and bio-stimulate your skin to produce more collagen and elastin for firmer, smoother skin.

  • Both the face and the body can benefit from thread lift
  • Face and jowls (sagging, deflated appearance)
  • Sagging neck
  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Nose: non-surgical smoothing and uplifting the droopy tip of the nose
  • Sagging arms,
  • Wrinkled skin around the belly button and tummy after pregnancy or weight loss
  • Inner thighs
  • Droopy buttocks 
  • Droopy breast, combined with PRP 
  • Wrinkles on the front of the thighs and knees
  • Cellulite

Almost everyone who has noticed looseness or sagging of the skin of the face, neck or body.

Most thread lifts take anywhere from 15-45 minutes, depending on the scope of the procedure.

As the sutures dissolve over the course of six months, they trigger an uptick in collagen growth, to thicken the skin slightly. Only at the end of this six month period should it be considered the final result, not sooner.

The PDO threads are studded with tissue-snagging, multi-directional barbs that once anchored in the deep tissues, the barbed thread will snag and lift the skin by repositioning the sagging tissues to its original youthful position. As it contours, volumizes and smooths the skin, the result is accentuation of the youthful jawline and cheekbone definition, or the youthful appearance of other parts of the body.
