The Liquid Facelift

A liquid facelift can dramatically reduce unwanted fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, looseness and volume loss on the face, with natural-looking results.* “The Liquid Facelift” is fully customized and tailored for your face and addresses your own unique cosmetic concerns.

The treatment is non-surgical, meaning, there are no incisions, no required anesthesia. This results in a reduction in the chances of complications, commonly associated with surgical lifts. There is generally no downtime as one may return to work or daily activities immediately.*

While some improvement is evident on Day 1, full and optimal results are typically achieved about 3-7 days following treatment.* Depending on the injectables and fillers used, results can last up to 18 months.* Although repeat treatments will be required to maintain your youthful results, as is the case with traditional facelift surgery, the cost is generally significantly lower.

Non-surgical menas there are no incisions, no required anesthesia, no possible complications that surgery might bring.

Utilizing a variety of injectables and dermal fillers, “The liquid facelift” can reduce:

  • Frown Lines (Glabellar lines)
  • Forehead Wrinkles
  • Crow’s Feet (wrinkles at the corners of the eyes)
  • Lip Lines (Perioral wrinkles)
  • Smile Lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette Lines (vertical wrinkles from lip corners to chin)
  • Volume Loss in the Cheeks (sunken cheeks)
  • Under Eye Hollows (tear troughs)
  • Buccal Hollows (sunken in face below the cheeks)
  • Receding and Reduced Sharpness of the Jawline (mandible)
    and much more

Improvement due to facelift, especially in areas around the mouth.*

The Threaded Facelift

A Thread-Lift, also known as The Feather Lift, is a delicate cosmetic procedure to gently lift sagging facial skin to produce a smoother, more youthful appearance.*

If gravity has started to take its toll on your face, a thread lift may be a less invasive alternative to a traditional face lift to rejuvenate the face without the risks and downtime associated with typical face lift surgery. As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces. The supporting tissue of the cheeks weakens, facial fat is lost, the jawline that used to be firm and tight forms jowls, the edges of the mouth drift downward towards the chin, and the lower face and neck sags. A thread lift procedure uses various different types of suture threads to help lift and tighten the skin. This process helps to raise the outer brow area, reduce jowling along the jawline, and reduce sagging in the cheeks, nasolabial (nose to mouth) folds and the lower eye areas.*

Throughout the procedure, patients can give feedback to the physician by looking in a mirror and describing if they feel particular areas need more lift

Thread-Lift Procedure

The thread-lift procedure involves very fine surgical sutures being inserted in to the soft tissue of the face to lift and support sagging areas. The threads are attached to the fat underneath the skin, and will then be adjusted to tighten and smooth the contours of your face.* The excess thread is trimmed so it does not appear above the skin surface.

A thread lift is performed under local anesthesia. Throughout the procedure, patients can give feedback to the physician by looking in a mirror and describing if they feel particular areas need more lift. The doctor can then attach more threads to these areas. Because there are no incisions made with a thread lift, there is no scarring on the skin. A thread lift procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the number of areas being treated and the type of threads used.*

There are fewer potential side effects to a thread lift procedure as the treatment is not as invasive as other face lift procedures. The area treated may be sore with some swelling, bruising or puffiness for a few days. Recovery is generally quick, with most patients returning to work the next day or two.*

It is particularly important for your practitioner to have a thorough understanding of facial anatomy in order to know where to carefully place the threads.
