Thread Lifts at Amavi Medspa in Bay Shore, NY
If you yearn for a younger-looking appearance but are eager to avoid surgery, we offer thread lifts at Amavi Medspa in Bay Shore, NY for gently “lifting” and smoothing skin on the face. We perform thread lifts using FDA-approved NovaThreads®.
Considered a facelift alternative, NovaThreads utilize hypodermic needles preloaded with polydioxanone, or PDO, a suture that is used for cardiothoracic surgery and one of the safest implant materials to be used in the body.
PDO thread lifts are gently placed under the skin in carefully selected areas of the face. Once inserted, the threads trigger the body’s natural healing response and stimulate new collagen production. PDO threads are fully absorbed by the body within four to six months, so there’s no risk of scar tissue. Best of all, since the threads stimulate new collagen growth, the skin-renewing benefits of thread lifts can continue up to 18 months per treatment.
NovaThreads can be used anywhere on the face, but are extremely effective at rejuvenating the areas around the mouth, chin, and neck.
Thread lifts at Amavi Medspa in Suffolk County, NY can help create younger-looking skin by:
- Smoothing lines and wrinkles on the face, mouth, and neck
- Stimulating new collagen growth
Frequently Asked Questions about Thread Lifts at Amavi Medspa in Suffolk County, NY
What happens during a thread lift at Amavi Medspa?
We gently insert a hypodermic needle under the skin that is preloaded with a PDO thread. We position the needle so it is parallel to the surface of the skin and then pull the needle out, leaving the thread in place under the skin.
How does a thread lift at Amavi Medspa in Suffolk County work?
The threads help to rejuvenate the face in two ways. First, the threads can provide an immediate lift to the skin. Second, thread lifts trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating new collagen growth for long lasting rejuvenation.
How long does it take to get a thread lift at Amavi Medspa?
Thread lifts are considered a “lunch-time” procedure, and can be performed in about 30 minutes.
Are there any side effects with thread lifts?
Thread lifts are made of PDO, one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. PDO threads are fully absorbed by the body within four to six months, which means there’s no risk of scar tissue. You may experience some redness, swelling, and slight bleeding immediately following your procedure, but these side effects subside quickly on their own.
