Thread Lift has been a staple in the aesthetics industry for decades, renowned as a nonsurgical intervention for skin rejuvenation. It has been becoming more sought after in the last few years as the techniques and technology have had radical advances in their ability to reposition aging skin. These absorbable sutures are known to integrate and be absorbed into your tissues while stimulating collagen. Thread lifting is an in-office procedure done under local anesthetic with minimal downtime and can offer impressive, natural-appearing results.
At Ocean Drive, we recognize that we may have some clients who may not be quite ready for a surgical intervention or possibly would like to maintain the surgical lift they have already achieved with minimal downtime. We are also very aware that the aesthetics industry is moving radically towards regenerative technologies.
We all want to optimize our bodies' own ability to maintain functionality and reverse the effects of aging. Collagen stimulation is integral in that process.
How We Rejuvenate Facial Features With this Treatment
InstaLift thread lift is the first FDA-approved absorbable suture for facial procedures. It's indicated for mid-face correction and volume replacement but can also be used in many other applications. Brow positioning, recreating a more youthful and lifted brow, can be difficult, as the brow can be a difficult area to treat outside of surgery. InstaLift is a powerful combo of collagen stimulation and repositioning, making it an ideal procedure to lift the brow and create a more open and bright eye appearance. InstaLift neck and jaw contouring will address lower face laxity, powerfully lifting the jowls and upper neck tissues.
With Thread Lift Vero Beach patients can experience Ocean Drive's commitment to premium results and individualized long-term treatment plans, now enhanced by the advanced technology of InstaLift.
Which is better for facial rejuvenation?
As we age, we lose the ability to stimulate collagen beginning in our twenties, which steadily declines annually by about 1% per year. At our practice in Vero Beach Thread Lift directly stimulates tissue collagen, enhancing skin rejuvenation. There are many different types of threads used for thread lifting. PDO threads are all over social media and are offered at other facilities. Ocean Drive recognizes the importance of state-of-the-art technology and superior products for our clients, which is why we are offering InstaLift threads. InstaLift threads are exactly that: state-of-the-art technology and superior material.
InstaLift utilizes PGLA threads (poly lactic co glycolic lactic acid). This material, in contrast to the PDO threads, does not begin integrating until about six months, whereas PDO threads are hydrolyzed by that time.
Collagen stimulation is maintained for over a year with PGLA, and the effects are known to last up to two years. Thus, PGLA threads are superior to PDO threads, offering longer-lasting collagen stimulation, longer-lasting lift, and less inflammation.
The InstaLift technology, distinct from any PDO thread design, features proprietary micro-suspension cones in deeper skin layers, offering more stability in the Thread Lift than any PDO treatment. These cones are bidirectional as well, which translates to more control and precision over contouring. The suture delivery method is also far superior to any PDO delivery method, ensuring precise placement in the desired tissue plane.
