Thread-lifting of the lower face and neck has recently become one of the breakout beauty trends for women of all ages - from older women wanting to improve the loose, crepe skin of the neck and jowls, to younger females simply looking to beat the signs of aging by having preventative treatments to sustain their youthful appearance. By combining multiple modalities of radiofrequency and ultrasound energies, collagen producing sutures, and injectable fat-burning enzymes, we can tighten the skin, reduce sub-mental neck fat and improve the overall skin quality. My younger patient here was interested in a non-surgical approach to tightening the skin of her lower face to enhance her natural jawline definition. Using threads made of a material called PDO, I place the collagen stimulating sutures superficially under the surface of the skin to lift and tighten the tissue. By inserting these in an overlapping or ’scaffolding’ method, she will see significant lifting and tightening over 6-12 months as this placement technique creates a collagen network that will tighten and smooth the area. Further improvement will be seen as we continue her customized treatment plan with a series of @Thermage_US and @Ultherapy treatments, which will also contribute to her goals of looking younger, longer.
