Dr. Russell Morrell and Dr. David Maisey may recommend a thread lift to improve your overall appearance and give you the look you desire.

As you age, you may notice that the support structure of your skin weakens and that you are losing facial fat, resulting in sagging skin in the areas of the eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, neck and around the eyes. Thread lifts can correct these issues to restore your appearance and are one of the quickest and most effective ways to tighten and lift loose skin.

When you receive a thread lift, we will gently insert a series of sutures, or “threads,” into your skin. These threads create an inflammatory response to increase collagen production, healing the skin in your face and lifting loose skin to create a tighter and more youthful appearance. The threads inserted into your skin are absorbed after a few months and no scar tissue will be left behind.

Benefits of thread lifts include:

  • Instant skin lifting
  • Immediately noticeable results
  • Cellular renewal through collage stimulation
  • Improved skin texture and elasticity
  • Reduction of fine lines
  • Skin tightening

While the results of your treatment are immediately noticeable, they will be more apparent after one to two weeks, when any potential swelling and bruising from the procedure has receded. Your appearance will continue to improve over a period of several months, and results of thread lift treatments have been known to last for up to three years.
