As time passes, our bodies experience many changes. Our skin is not immune from the effects of time, and it may become less supported over time. While loose or sagging skin can be frustrating, there are a range of treatment options available to rejuvenate your skin! By choosing a thread lift, this offers a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment method to lift the skin and promote the production of important supportive tissues. Discover the possibilities during a consultation with us at RefineU MedSpa in Oklahoma City, OK!
What Is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive method of skin rejuvenation. This diverse technique employs the use sutures or threadlike structures to target skin on a dermal level. The threads are used to lift the skin, restructuring the appearance of natural facial contours and features. Thread lifts also encourage the production of important tissues and fibers to provide skin that is well-supported for a tight, youthful appearance. We carry both NovaThread and MINT PDO threads at RefineU Medspa. Schedule a consultation with our experienced staff and they can help customize the most optimal plan for you!
What Is a NovaThreads PDO Thread Lift?
A NovaThreads PDO thread lift utilizes PDO threads (polydioxanone threads) to lift and recontour tissues. These threads are similar to those used for cardiovascular and similar surgical procedures. Not only do they effectively restructure tissues, but they are gradually absorbed by your body over time.
During NovaThreads PDO thread lift procedures, each PDO thread is carefully administered into an area of concern. They target subdermal tissues, stimulating the production of collagen.
What Is a MINT PDO Thread Lift?
MINT PDO threads are FDA approved and are one of the preferred threads, as it is a stronger thread. A successful outcome of a thread lift procedure depends both on excellent technique and the type of suture used. MINT (Minimal Invasive Nonsurgical Thread) PDO threads have a stronger lifting power. The MINT PDO threads were designed to most effectively perform a nonsurgical facelift by lifting up sagging skin to restore a more youthful V-shape. In a thread lift, threads are inserted underneath the skin to instantly and effectively lift sagging skin. The treads are mainly used on the face and neck, but can also be used on the body to lift the skin. The thread lift is minimally invasive and very safe and effective in-office procedure with little downtime especially when performed by an experienced provider. The benefits of the advantages of a thread lift include, instant lifting, natural results, non-surgical, minimal downtime, and collagen stimulation.
What Is a Silhouette InstaLift?
The Silhouette InstaLift® is an approach to non-surgical facial rejuvenation that utilizes PLGA (poly glycolide/L-lactide) suspension sutures. These sutures, which are similar to those utilized in various medical procedures, are shaped as bi-directional cones. The cone shape functions as an anchor, simultaneously keeping the suture in place as it instantly lifts the area. These sutures trigger collagen production, promoting the appearance of firmer skin. The Silhouette InstaLift may address concerns along the jawline, brows, neck, and mid-facial area.
What Types of PDO Threads Are Available?
There are different types of Nova and MINT PDO threads and each offers unique benefits. Our team in Oklahoma City offers:
