Thread Lift in Houston TX
- SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT
What Is Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a type of non-surgical facelift that provides dramatic results with minimal invasion to the body, and at lower costs than a surgical procedure. Because thread lifts require no incisions, there is no scarring to worry about, results look completely natural, and downtime is greatly reduced in comparison to more invasive surgical procedures. Doctors and patients alike are thrilled with the results of these procedures, which allow patients to save time and money, as well as reducing risks associated with surgery.
A thread lift is performed using surgical sutures made of the same safe and absorbable material used in heart surgeries, which is among the safest materials that may be implanted into the human body. Thread lift procedures are provided in the Houston area at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, a full service aesthetic medical center under the direction of respected plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo.
Two thread lift procedures have been recently approved by the FDA for use in non-surgical facelifts and minimally invasive neck lift procedures: the Silhouette Instalift and NovaThreads. Both procedures are designed to lift facial tissue and produce a younger-looking facial appearance. Both are excellent micro-invasive methods for lifting and rejuvenating. Both may be combined with other treatments, such as Botox or dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments or microneedling.
These procedures may be performed on any area of the face or body, takes 30 to 45 minutes, and requires only local anesthesia, which means that patients may resume normal activities immediately following treatment. Most patients require no pain medication following treatment.
NovaThreads™ Thread Lift
NovaThreads are absorbable threads that are absorbed by the body within four to six months after treatment. These threads may be plain or curved sutures, or contain tiny barbs that lift the skin. These threads once inserted into the skin, not only serve to gently pull the skin tighter, but also contributed to increased collagen production, improving skin tone at the cellular level.
NovaThreads may be used to create both lifting effects and skin rejuvenation through collagen production, and results last from six months to a year, so follow-up procedures must be repeated periodically in order to maintain optimal results.
Tread Lift With Silhouette® Instalift™
When you look in the mirror, are you unsatisfied with the appearance of your mid-face? Perhaps you are bothered by lax or sagging skin in the cheek area or loss of youthful volume due to the natural aging process. If so, we have the treatment for you! Now offering Silhouette InstaLift in Houston, Bellaire, Katy, Pearland, and Sugar Land, Texas.
Silhouette InstaLift is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment that uses Micro-Suspension Technology™ to lift the facial skin, including sagging cheeks and deep nasolabial folds. It also boosts volume by stimulating natural collagen production over time through the use of micro-cones.
Micro-cones are placed in the deepest layer of the skin, which provides an instantaneous and lasting lift for over two years. These patented threads then are gradually absorbed by the body and stimulate collagen production over time for up to 2 years, so you can enjoy a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
The Silhouette InstaLift is most suitable for patients aged 40-60 who are seeking natural-looking mid-face rejuvenation. If you are tired of having to undergo repeat filler treatments but are not yet ready to undergo surgery, this treatment is a great option!
The benefits of Silhouette InstaLift include:
- Non-surgical and minimally invasive
- Minimal downtime
- Long-lasting results
- Lifts lax, sagging skin
- Restores youthful volume
- A boost in confidence
What to Expect
The Silhouette InstaLift treatment is performed in the office and takes less than one hour to complete. The treatment area will be cleansed, and a local anesthetic will be used to numb the mid-face area. Dr. Olga Bachilo will then mark the areas that she would like to target, and the Silhouette InstaLift sutures will be placed in the cheek and/or along the jawline. Once placed, the Silhouette InstaLift sutures and cones are “locked” in place with a gentle massage to create an immediate lifting effect.
There is minimal downtime, though patients may experience temporary swelling, bruising, pain, or mild soreness at the treatment site. Cold packs can be wrapped and applied to the skin, and acetaminophen may be taken to reduce swelling and discomfort. Most side effects dissipate within 24-48 hours. We advise that you avoid excessive exercise and movement, direct sunlight, and UV light exposure for two weeks. You should also avoid facial or facial massage and sauna for 3-4 weeks. For any questions or concerns regarding healing, feel free to reach out to our office at 713-766-4643!
Ideal Candidates for Thread Lift
A thread lift is an ideal preventative treatment on patients showing early signs of aging and is ideal for men and women between the ages of 30 and 60 whose skin is just starting to show signs of skin laxity and sagging. Those with more excessive sagging may require a traditional facelift.
