Cosmetic Threads

Treats areas of skin laxity in the face, neck and body

Injectable and laser treatments are great options for smaller areas where fine lines and wrinkles are your primary concern. But for areas where laxity is the problem, you need one thing-LIFT. Cosmetic Thread treatments are a less invasive alternative for rejuvenating the face, neck, and body.

Results are achieved with considerably less downtime as well as decreased risks for complications and adverse reactions. Patients are able to return to work and their daily activities quicker and without the scarring and trauma associated with previous “lifting” treatments and without many of the risks associated with dermal filler techniques.

So, what exactly are Cosmetic Threads?

These are not the threads you use to sew on a button. Cosmetic Threads are surgical sutures inserted under the skin using a small needle. After a local anesthetic, thin threads are placed under the skin through tiny needle sites made in targeted areas. Loose skin is not removed, it’s pulled back using the thread ends and then tiny subdermal, non-visible stitches are made to secure the lift. You can actually see the results as the practitioner works, making for the unique experience to approve your own look while the treatment is still in process.

Over time Cosmetic Threads dissolve completely leaving behind new, healthy collagen in their place. The more youthful look can last anywhere from 18 months to 4 years, depending on treatment area and type of
thread used.
