New procedures and innovations are always being introduced into the medical cosmetic industry to give patients more options to achieve the results they want. One of the latest anti-aging procedures is the innovative Thread Lift. It’s a non-surgical way to lift, shape and contour most parts of your face that are experiencing signs of aging — without surgery.
Gives a non-surgical facelift to areas around the cheeks, jaw, neck, and eyes, stimulating collagen in the process
Approximately 30-45 minutes.
Post-treatment, temporary soreness or face swelling can be expected, but will fade within a week or two.
$50 – $2000+
A thread lift is a non-invasive, anti-aging procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas.
1. Get immediate results; threads cause slight lifting of the skin by pulling against gravity
2. The threads cause controlled stimulation of collagen in the dermis resulting in gradual firming.
You will probably see some initial firming and lifting right after your procedure, As your body begins to naturally generate collagen, your tightened, lifted outcomes should continue to improve for the next few months. Best results from a thread lift last about a year or more.
Polydioxanone, or PDO threads, are a type of medical-grade thread often used in surgical procedures. But unlike other surgical threads, polydioxanone is very strong in addition to being biodegradable. It safely dissolves into the patient’s body within a few months. As the material gradually disintegrates, it also triggers the body’s natural healing process. The body enhances collagen production around the threads, which act as scaffolding for further skin cell regeneration. In the long run, PDO threads provide patients with an anti-aging solution that continues to reduce the appearance of aging and improves over time.
NovaThreads are fully dissolvable, and that’s what makes it a critical feature that allows Dr. Greenberg to perform this non-surgical facelift procedure. NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. The PDO thread remains under the skin. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it — a “controlled healing” that’s happening right underneath the skin. Human skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NovaThreads, we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally! Nova Threads can be used almost anywhere on the body but are particularly effective on the neck and jawline.
