Thread Lift

A thread lift is a nonsurgical procedure that lifts sagging, aging skin and stimulates collagen production to give your face or neck a more youthful appearance. Plastic surgeons place medical-grade thread under the skin to pull the skin into position. These threads activate the body’s natural healing response, triggering the increase of collagen. Threads come in several different materials and lengths.

Unlike a facelift, a thread lift is a nonsurgical procedure that creates subtle changes. It’s often called a “lunchtime facelift” because it’s such a quick procedure with minimal downtime.

There are several types of thread lifts, including:

  • Cat or fox eye thread lift: This involves lifting the eyebrows toward the temples to give your eyes a catlike look.
  • Eyebrow thread lift: A plastic surgeon lifts sagging or furrowed eyebrows and tightens your skin.
  • Nose thread lift: A plastic surgeon injects threads to lift, straighten or slim your nose. In some cases, they may combine a nose thread lift with dermal fillers.
  • Neck thread lift: This procedure lifts the loose skin on your neck or smooths neck lines.

Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.

The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars
  • Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
  • Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids

Microneedling Radio Frequency

Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate facial skin.

The treatment is a form of controlled skin injury. The damage stimulates the growth of healthy new skin, which can benefit common skin issues like acne scars and wrinkles.

Compared with treatments like chemical peels and dermabrasion, radiofrequency microneedling is minimally invasive. Read on to learn about the procedure, side effects, and benefits.

The skin that grows back is thicker and smoother. This can target:

  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • stretch marks
  • appearance of large pores
  • acne scars
  • scars from injury or surgery
  • hyperpigmentation

BOTOX

Botox injections are shots that use a toxin to prevent a muscle from moving for a limited time. These shots are often used to smooth wrinkles on the face. They're also used to treat neck spasms, sweating, overactive bladder, lazy eye and other conditions. Botox shots also may help prevent migraine.

Botox is a toxin, but when doctors use it correctly and in small doses, it can have benefits. It has both cosmetic and medical uses. As a cosmetic treatment, Botox injections can reduce the appearance of skin wrinkles.

Manufacturers make Botox injections with very small doses of Botulinum toxin. The drug can temporarily paralyze muscles, which can benefit people with various muscle or nerve disorders.
People often request the injections in the following areas of the face:

  • wrinkles between the eyebrows, called frown lines, glabellar lines, or elevens
  • wrinkles around the eyes, known as crow’s feet
  • horizontal creases in the forehead
  • lines at the corners of the mouth
  • “cobblestone” skin on the chin

RF Tightening

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, also called radiofrequency skin tightening, is a nonsurgical method of tightening your skin. It involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen.

Thermalift was the first type of RF available for skin tightening, but now many companies offer similar technology.

Some of the most common types of systems in the United States include:

  • Exilis
  • Profound RF.
  • Thermage
  • Thermi

Laser Toning

Laser toning is an effective and safe cosmetic procedure that helps correct several skin issues. It uses a low-strength laser beam to lower the melanin pigment in the deep skin layers to treat various skin disorders like hyperpigmentation.

Anyone planning to receive a cosmetic correction/augmentation treatment should be well aware that this is an era of passing fancy and that the trend is also typically followed by the doctors/specialists.

Lasers have appeared to be a wonder cosmetic amplification tool and its beam gently vaporizes the skin tissues to treat various skin issues including:

  • Pigmentation
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Unwanted tattoos
  • Acne scars
  • Birthmarks
  • Blemishes
