As we age, our skin undergoes substantial changes on a microscopic level, including decreased collagen production and diminished beneficial fat reservoirs. These alterations are responsible for the development of fine wrinkles, deep furrows, sagging, and reduced prominence of aesthetically pleasing features. Traditionally, correction of these unwanted signs of aging required invasive surgery to physically cut and reposition the skin. Fortunately, advances in technology have led to the invention of non-surgical, FDA-approved skin tightening procedures which can help tackle these issues and restore youthful contouring of your face and neck.

Subdermal skin tightening is a new exciting technology in which radio frequency is used to heat the dermis with an internal probe stimulating collagen production and subsequent steady skin

non-surgical face and neck lifts procedures performed include:

Thread lifts are another innovative technique where absorbable sutures are inserted in the subdermal plane and as they are absorbed by the body they stimulate collagen production and tightening of the skin.

Armed with an arsenal of non-invasive face and neck lifting procedures, Dr. Hooman Khorasani can help you counteract the effects of gravity and age to elevate the brow, restore cheek contour, soften smile lines and nasolabial folds, improve jowl lift, and reduce neck crepiness. Regardless of your particular aesthetic objective, we will work with you as a team to transform your goals into reality.

To find out if a non-surgical face and neck lift can give you a renewed and refreshed look, visit Dr. Khorasani at our New York City practice. To request a consultation, text message us securely, or contact our Manhattan office by phone at 347-574-8500.

What is FaceTite®?

FaceTite is a new procedure that is comparable to a surgical facelift. The difference is it is far less invasive, which means no hospital time, less recovery time, and minimal scarring. Using radio-frequency energy, sometimes combined with gentle liposuction, FaceTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, which was previously only attainable through a surgical procedure such as a facelift.

What is a non-surgical face and neck lift?

Contrary to traditional surgical lifts of the face and neck, thread lifts utilize specialized sutures to non-invasively elevate the skin to restore youthful smoothness and contouring. Thread lifts are composed of a biodegradable substance with excellent tensile strength. This particular formulation allows for an immediate lift of the targeted areas without the risk and complications associated with more invasive surgeries or first-generation thread lifts. As the threads are naturally absorbed by the body over the course of several months, they stimulate the production of new, healthy collagen to sustain the initial lifting effects.

An area of constant study and research, modern thread lifts have undergone novel structural changes to maximize their safety and cosmetic efficacy. Each thread possesses surgical-grade strength, which allows for instantaneous lift of the targeted area. New generation sutures are composed of an absorbable material to mitigate the complications associated with the first iteration of thread lifts. In addition to ensuring maximal safety, the biodegradable structure of contemporary threads also stimulates the production of new, healthy collagen to restore the skin’s natural elasticity.

What areas of the face and neck can be treated with non-surgical thread lifts?

These versatile threads can be used to counteract an array of age-related changes on the face and neck. Introduction of these specialized threads in the forehead serves to elevate the brows and diminish the appearance of heavy furrows in the area. The benefits of threads inserted near the temple are three-fold: improved contouring of the cheek, a softened smile, reduced marionette lines, and elevated jowls. Finally, threads placed in the neck restore its youthful profile and reduce deep wrinkles.

Please note that this lifting procedure does not address the fine lines, discoloration, or texture irregularities associated with the passage of time. Patients seeking to comprehensively improve the wide array of age-induced skin changes may want to consider adding laser skin resurfacing to their non-surgical thread lift. Please visit our Laser Skin Resurfacing page to determine if our modern, non-invasive laser therapies can help maximally rejuvenate and refresh your skin.

What types of threads are used for non-surgical face and neck lifts?

Committed to providing the least invasive and most effective procedures to his patients, Dr. Khorasani is pleased to offer Silhouette InstaLift and EuroThreads to lift your face and neck without the risks of more invasive surgery. Depending on the desired aesthetic results, one or both of these specialized threads will be used during your non-surgical face or neck lift. Rest assured that the recommended thread combination capitalizes on Dr. Khorasani’s extensive experience rejuvenating the skin and is individually selected to optimize your cosmetic outcome.

Silhouette InstaLift

These proprietary threads are composed of poly-L-lactic acid and glycolide polymer, two biodegradable substances that stimulate the production of collagen. These compounds are woven together to form a single suture that is enhanced by the placement of small cones and knots. This unique structure maximally lifts the targeted area while simultaneously provoking a wide-scale increase in collagen production to prolong the results of the procedure.

EuroThreads

EuroThread sutures contain a different absorbable compound called polydioxanone. The malleability of this polymer allows it to be packaged in a variety of formulations, including: smooth, barbed, and twisted. Smooth threads are best suited for the correction of decreased skin elasticity, barbed threads are excellent for softening wrinkles, and twisted threads are optimized to restore lost volume.
