THREAD LIFT IN NEWPORT BEACH, CA
As we age, our skin loses elastin and collagen, resulting in loose skin and lines and wrinkles. However, not everyone who is showing these signs of aging may want to undergo invasive surgery such as a facelift. A thread lift is an alternative procedure that can help to lift sagging skin for a more youthful appearance.
WHAT IS A THREAD LIFT?
A thread lift is a facial rejuvenation procedure that uses delicate surgical threats to elevate sagging skin on the face. It is commonly used to lift sagging brows, cheeks, and jowls for a more youthful facial appearance. There are no facelift incisions made, and no visible scars.
TRADITIONAL THREAD LIFT
The thread lift was removed from the market almost a decade ago. The original thread lift was around in the late ‘90s and was performed on patients until the mid-2000s. The sutures used in the past were permanent barbed sutures, which had a history of not providing enough hold and would sometimes snap.
NEW THREAD LIFTS
Today, updated technology has brought back a newer, safer version of the thread lift such as the Silhouette InstaLift®, which uses biodegradable dissolving sutures with soft cones. These new sutures ensure the lifting necessary to hold your skin. The FDA has approved them for lifting the mid-face.
SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT® is the newest non-surgical facelift procedure aimed at lifting sagging skin and reducing the signs of facial aging. In one simple 45-minute procedure, requiring no surgery and no downtime, you can walk out looking years younger.
It is a minimally invasive facelift procedure which uses fine biodegradable sutures placed deep beneath the skin to lift and tighten. This suturing technique allows our doctors to reposition sagging tissue to a more youthful position. The sutures are inserted through tiny holes. No actual facelift incisions are made. Local anesthesia is used to ensure there is no discomfort during the procedure. The results are immediate. Results can last up to two years, but will vary patient to patient.
The InstaLift® has been approved by the FDA for the mid-face. Areas of improvement can be seen in the cheeks down to the jowls and chin line.
Any man or woman who is showing signs of facial aging resulting from skin laxity who wants to improve their appearance without having a surgical facelift. The InstaLift® is also a good alternative when non-invasive treatments aren’t enough.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN INSTALIFT TREATMENT?
A local numbing agent will be used to ensure the procedure is completely comfortable. Dr. Nichter or Dr. Horowitz will then make a needle entry point into the skin to insert the thin filament. They will then lift and secure the deeper layers of the skin. After just a short 45-minute procedure, you will immediately see the result.
Both Dr. Horowitz and Dr. Nichter are fully trained on this minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure and can answer any questions you have. If you would like to schedule a consultation, please call 949.565.2121 today.
