When it comes to reversing the hands of time and regaining youthful skin, many are hesitant to consider surgical solutions due to their invasiveness, associated risks, and lengthy recovery times. Enter the thread lift, a minimally invasive and increasingly popular procedure that promises subtle yet transformative results. With the advancements in medical technology, thread lifts have become a go-to choice for those looking for immediate results with minimal downtime. Here at the Kagan Institute, Dr. Kagan is proud to offer this innovative treatment. Let's delve into the details to see if a thread lift might be the right fit for you.

The Underlying Science

Thread lifts are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves using threads made of polydioxanone (PDO), a biodegradable synthetic material. These threads are carefully inserted under the skin using fine needles. Once in place, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The real magic happens when these threads stimulate the production of collagen, a naturally occurring protein that adds volume and elasticity to your skin.

Unlike surgical facelifts, thread lifts do not remove any skin but simply reposition it, offering a natural-looking result. The procedure usually takes about 30-45 minutes, making it convenient to fit into a busy schedule.

Comparing Thread Lifts to Traditional Facelifts

Traditional facelifts undoubtedly offer dramatic results but come with a host of possible disadvantages. Thread lifts, on the other hand, provide a middle ground where you can enjoy the benefits of a lifted appearance without the surgical downsides. While the effects may not be as long-lasting as a traditional facelift, the safety and convenience of thread lifts make them a compelling alternative.

Upon your arrival at our office, Dr. Kagan will conduct a comprehensive consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals and determine your eligibility for the procedure. The procedure is done under local anesthetic with or without oral sedation and usually takes about an hour.
