As you age, you may notice that the structure of your skin weakens and that you lose facial fat, resulting in sagging skin in the areas of the eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, neck and eyes. A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to safely and instantly raise the loose skin on neck, improving your facial volume and appearance to give you a more youthful look. This treatment is one of the fastest and most effective ways to tighten and lift loose skin.
When you receive a neck lift, our dentists will gently insert a series of sutures, or “threads,” into your skin. These threads create an inflammatory response, which increases collagen production and heals the skin in your neck, resulting in a lift of the skin to create a tighter and more youthful appearance. The threads inserted into your skin are designed to absorb after a few months, so no scar tissue will be left behind following your treatment.
Benefits of thread lifts include:
• Instant lifting of the skin
• Results that are immediately noticeable
• Cellular renewal due to collagen stimulation
• Improved skin texture
• Improved skin elasticity
• Fine line reduction
• Skin tightening
Please note that while your results will be immediate, they will be more apparent one to two weeks after treatment when any potential swelling and bruising from your thread lift has receded. Your appearance will continue to improve over the next several months. Results from thread lifts have been known to last for up to three years.
