The non-surgical thread facelift you have been waiting for. Absorbable sutures produce an immediate lift to the skin from the inside out. The result? A dramatic lift to sagging jowls, cheeks and the lower face after just one session with little to no downtime.
Threads are absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone. These sutures have been used in cardiac surgeries for the past sixty years or more, and are the safest materials to be implanted in the body. How it works is a preloaded needle containing the sutures are strategically placed underneath the skin by our physicians. As the injector removes the needle, the sutures are left behind exactly where you need them most. Aside from the immediate results, the skin begins repairing itself by kicking collagen production into overdrive. The stimulated collagen helps make the results last. After four to six months, the sutures themselves dissolve without leaving any residual scar tissue. It’s important to note that, even as the threads dissolve, the visible lift and/or added volume lasts up to a year after insertion.
Threads are usually recommended for patients experiencing sudden volume loss, sagging skin or who desire a lift to the face or body.
Topical numbing is recommended. Nerve blockers can be requested when scheduling your appointment.
There are three types of threads used at Russak Dermatology Clinic. Barbs, Smooths and Twists. Each type of thread serves a unique cosmetic purpose. Barbs are predominantly used to lift the mid, lower face and certain body parts as well. Smooths help smooth out deep expression lines. Twists are strategically placed where volume loss is noticeable for instant plumping – twists are most commonly used to produce a pout lift.
Julie Russak is by far the best dermatologist I have ever visited. First off, her office is impeccable and looks like a museum. The front desk staff are always friendly and so are the medical assistants. Julie always gets the job done right and not once has she pressured me to spend any more money than I need to or suggest other procedures. If I ask her she’s very honest and professional.
