Thread Lift

Quick Skin Lifting Without Surgery

Thread Lift is a lifting procedure to improve visible and early signs of aging on the face and neck.  PDO (Polydioxanone) and PLLA(Poly-L-Lactic Acid) threads are absorbable sutures which can improve early skin laxity by lifting and rejuvenating skin by stimulating collagen volume restoration.

These sutures were initially developed for use in surgery procedures and have received FDA clearance and are now recognized as a safe, minimally-invasive alternative to traditional aesthetic procedures such as full face, jaw, brow, and neck lifts.

The primary benefit to this procedure over traditional facelifts are reduced costs, scarring, healing time, and invasiveness.
