Thread Lift

Until recent years, the only way to address problems caused by facial skin laxity (i.e. jowls and drooping cheeks) was to get invasive facelift surgery. This is no longer the case and you’ll be happy to know that a new type of procedure has been developed to fill in the gap between non-invasive facial rejuvenation.
A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, Dr. Takhar simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.
No surgery. No downtime. Just results.
