Barbed sutures inserted into the face to make a lifting impact or alteration and firming of the soft facial tissues. This non-surgical procedure is helpful for those with soft faces or aging of the mid-face, jowls, brow and neck. Selective regional lifting is possible. Threads are available in varied configurations: short, bi-directional threads (APTOS, Feather lift); or long bi-directional slings (barbed suture lift), or long uni-directional threads (contour threads). Different threads produce completely different effects (such as firming or lifting). These threads will be employed in conjunction with ancient open facelift surgery or endoscopic techniques. This procedure may take approximately 1 hour.

Once your skin has well round the threads inserted throughout associate "InstaLift," we recommend pairing your thread lift with a treatment like ultherapy.

Ultherapy that is commonly named as being a “nonsurgical facelift is safe enough to be applied to virtually any area of the face and neck. By combining this procedure with a thread elevate, you can maximize the overall amount of skin firming you receive and create more even lifting by treating the neck as well as the face.
