If you’re looking for a lift, you’re far from alone. Our skin loses connective tissues like collagen and elastin as we age, leading to wrinkles and skin laxity. But while many of us are interested in lifting skin, only a small group are interested in taking the surgical route. Those seeking non-invasive skin lifting have found great success with thread lifts.
At Radiance Medspa Wheaton, we offer thread lifts using two technologies – PDO NovaThreads and Silhouette InstaLift. Schedule a consultation to learn more about which treatment method is ideal for your aesthetic goals.
You may have heard of “string facelifts” in the past, as well as the negative side effects that could accompany them. While this treatment method has been used for some time, the materials involved in a Silhouette Instalift or PDO Novathreads lift are entirely different. These soluble materials dissolve over time to offer an improved version of facial threading. The materials are FDA-approved and yield predictable, safe results with a significantly lower risk of scarring.
Silhouette Instalift stimulates the production of fresh collagen, while also providing an immediate lift. The thin strings dissolve naturally over time and provide lifting for the upper face, lower face, and along the jawline. Your provider will work with you to develop a custom treatment plan prior to placing the threads. Results typically last between 2-3 years. The InstaLift also helps to enhance results from other noninvasive treatments, including Botox, fillers, and laser resurfacing. Visit our Silhouette InstaLift page to learn more about this treatment option.
NovaThreads are PDO (polydioxanone) absorbable sutures. These types of sutures have been used by surgeons for many years. NovaThreads come preloaded in hypodermic needles so that they can be easily implanted in the skin. NovaThreads trigger a healing response within the skin. After the threads have been inserted, the body reacts by creating new collagen in the area. This leads to natural lifting and tightening of the skin, and leaves you looking like the best version of yourself. This type of controlled healing delivers subtle and gradual results. Visit our PDO NovaThreads page to learn more about whether this thread lift might be right for you.
