Until recently, the only way to correct unwanted drooping skin around the face was with a surgical procedure. Face lifts carry the risk of facial nerve paralysis or palsy. Sub-dermal threads are becoming the preferred non-surgical facelift treatment. Threads offer a visible lift to the skin to correct jowls or drooping cheeks and skin laxity in the neck region as well. The procedure is relatively easy. First, the area of concern is numbed with a local anesthetic. Next, a thread is inserted into the dermal layer of the skin to the area of concern. The thread is then pulled back gently to create a lift and correct unwanted laxity in the skin. The effects can be remarkable with only a few threads.
Threads incite the body to create a “healing reaction” around the thread which stimulates new collagen deposition and further tightens the skin adjacent to the thread. Eventually, the threads will be absorbed by the body but not after lifting and tightening the skin. Because thread lift procedures are much easier than traditional face lifts, they are more affordable.
There is little down time compared with traditional plastic surgery procedures. Most people return to work the next day without any signs of the procedure. Threads are made from biodegradable materials and will be absorbed by the body in 4 to 6 months typically. The results can last for one to three years because of the collagen stimulation in the skin.
I love Dr Yap! She is great and the botox I get there is incredible. I can go 8 months without needing to go back. Staff is great. Always will tell me about specials they are having. Thank you for taking care of me.
Dr. Yap recommended micro needling since I had significant scarring on my cheeks as a result of having cystic acne as a teenager as well as sun damage. I am now on my 4th micro needling session and the results have been amazing. My scarring has significantly been reduced and my skin is glowing.
I bought my wife a botox and filler package and they did a fantastic job. Erica really knows her stuff. We will be back for sure. My wife has never been so happy.
Very happy with Dr. Antony and True Radiance. I bought a groupon botox treatment. Dr. Antony did a great job administering it and he's really likeable. I will be back!
