A surgical facelift is not the only option to restore your youthful face anymore. Other than fillers to plump up lost volume and Botox to relax hyperactive muscles, now there’s an emerging procedure that fights the effects of gravity and collagen degeneration, without going under the knife: thread lift.
What is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is an innovative, non-surgical face lift procedure popular in NYC. It involves sewing fine threads with tiny cones into the face, beneath the subcutaneous layer of fat. This gently lifts sagging skin without the patient going under the knife.
Our skin can naturally repair itself—and by inserting threads into it, we can make skin heal itself by naturally creating new collagen.The thread lift is ideal for people experiencing early signs of aging, such as minor sagging.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved this cosmetic procedure in early 2015. It’s estimated to be the biggest cosmetic trend of the decade.
The Thread Facelift Procedure
Our very own Dr. Leslie Gerstman of NYC will perform the non surgical facelift procedure. During the treatment, she will insert thin threads into the face through small incisions, then attach the threads to the skin tissue, pulling them back to lift and smoothen the face.The treated areas will lift up almost immediately.
Once Dr. Gerstman and the team knot the threads, the threads become hidden within the skin, and there will be no visible scarring.
The whole procedure can be done in only a maximum of two hours, often without anesthesia. Because you remain conscious during the treatment, you can approve the look of the thread lift while we work.
