Just a few years ago, patients wishing to address the signs of facial aging only had the option of undergoing a facelift. Sometimes this option appeared too harsh and pulled back. With improving surgical techniques, surgical facelifts remain a popular and effective procedure today; with natural-looking results. Yet many patients no longer want to wait until they “look old” to benefit from cosmetic procedures. By seeking procedures like ThreadLifts or Fractora when the first signs of aging occur, patients can take a proactive approach to aging, maintaining a refreshing, youthful appearance before signs of aging are visible.
The ThreadLift: The ThreadLift procedure is the newest in non-surgical facelifts. Surgeons use sutures (surgical threads) to make the face appear firmer and more lifted. The surgeon makes tiny incisions and a specially designed surgical thread is gently fed into the patient’s skin, and once set into place, pulled to the desired appearance. In this minimally invasive procedure, the need for anesthesia is eliminated. Ideal candidates for ThreadLifts include people who have minimal signs of aging and need just a little lift. If major signs of aging are already apparent, more traditional, surgical options may be the best way to achieve a more youthful appearance.
Loss of collagen is one of the reasons skin starts to hang. Fractora uses heat to rebuild collagen underneath the surface of the skin for a renewing, younger looking face. It additionally provides lifts to the neck, jawline, and jowls, with no anesthesia, incision or downtime. Over time, a new collagen remodel to tightens the skin. This results in healthier, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. Additionally, we recommend the procedure for those with minimal signs of aging.
A growing popularity for cosmetic surgery and the demand for minimally invasive procedures is expanding. Many medi-spas and doctors who are not plastic surgeons by trade are now performing surgeries. Above all, it is important to choose a doctor who has the necessary training to perform your procedure. Then, relax and enjoy the results.
