Aging into a wiser and more self-assured version of yourself is a beautiful experience. But it also brings about certain unwanted changes in your looks. Among these natural effects of aging, skin laxity plays a significant role in affecting your appearance.

With a thread lift in NYC you can address these concerns to achieve uplifted skin and younger-looking features without surgery.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon with specialization in facial procedures, Dr. Sandra Margoles has the experience, skill, and expertise to offer visible improvements through thread lift. If you are concerned about loose skin and desire a non-surgical solution, Dr. Margoles can help you achieve a more youthful appearance through this minimally invasive procedure.
What Is a Thread Lift?
Thread lift is a non-surgical procedure that resolves the look of loose skin by lifting it with specialized internal sutures. In addition to visibly uplifting sagging skin and smoothing its appearance, the absorbable sutures also stimulate your skin’s natural healing response. This boosts the production of natural skin tightening agents like collagen and continues to visibly firm up the skin weeks after the procedure. The natural boost of collagen also reshapes and restructures the features of your face and neck, while helping to restore lost volume in the treatment areas. You can benefit from uplifted, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin without intensive surgery.
The sutures in a thread lift are inserted and applied through a specialized cannula, which involves no removal of skin from the treatment areas. Thread lift an ideal alternative to surgical methods like facelift, neck lift, and brow lift that smooth loose skin and restore lost volume. If you prefer a non-surgical option or cannot undergo surgery due to medical reasons, a thread lift can help you obtain a younger-looking appearance without surgical intervention.
Due to the use of minimally invasive techniques, your treatment area is not covered with bandages after the procedure. Most patients can see visible improvements in their features almost right away, while noticing more enhanced results in the following weeks. There is minimal to no downtime after the procedure, which means that you can typically resume most of your activities right after your treatment.

How Does a Thread Lift Work?
Thread lift works through minimally invasive muscle restructuring techniques. The treatment involves the use of fine polymer threads, small needles, and a specialized device (cannula). While the specialized cannula safely delivers the fine polymers under your skin to uplift internal muscles, small needles ensure that there are no incisions required for the procedure. When a qualified provider sutures your internal tissue with the fine polymers, the procedure visibly uplifts your loose skin, smooths its texture, and redefines your features.
The polymer threads used in a thread lift are safe for the body and absorb into internal tissues overtime. They are not removed following the procedure. Besides restructuring the shape of treatment areas, these sutures also encourage the body’s natural collagen production to further tighten the skin and boost volume, continually delivering effective results for weeks after treatment.
Apart from being minimally invasive, a thread lift also does not require the use of general anesthesia and uses local anesthesia instead. You will be awake during the procedure and will be able to drive yourself home following treatment. The outpatient procedure typically only takes 60 to 90 minutes, allowing you to resume your daily tasks quickly.
