There’s a new option for lifting and tightening sagging facial skin without going under the knife. Late last year, the FDA approved a new variation of a once-popular procedure, called a thread lift, making the use of temporary, absorbable sutures a viable option for those who want to achieve similar results of a traditional facelift without the surgery or downtime.
Threads improved technology uses resorbable sutures, composed of biodegradable polymers, that have been used in cardiovascular surgery for decades.
Threads are inserted subcutaneously instantly lifting, tightening and contouring areas suffering from volume loss while simultaneously stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin where treatment has occurred.
The sutures are inserted into the skin and can instantly tighten and lift problem areas with volume loss like the cheeks, jowls, lips and neck, while stimulating the body to build collagen in the area where the sutures are placed. Attached to the fine threads are tiny cones, small umbrella like attachments that lift and tighten from underneath the skin while simultaneously causing inflammation, which helps to stimulate collagen growth over time.
— Used alone, results can last up to 18 months, but we often use the absorbable suture lift in combination with fillers, lasers and other nonsurgical facial treatments to create the most natural looking and longer lasting effect.
Threads can also be used for body contouring, lifting sagging and lax skin above knees, abdomen, chest, and more!
