Suture Lifts & Face Lifts
Thread Lift is the New Face Lift
How do you know if a thread lift is right for you? First off, thread lift candidates are typically between the ages of 30 to 60 and their skin is just beginning to show signs of aging. This procedure is primarily for patients with minimal sagging, those with more advanced stages of aging would benefit more from a traditional face lift. This procedure is relatively new, and have experienced some unique changes recently. With the addition of absorbable sutures, these threads actually stay in your body! The sutures are made of a synthetic and absorbable polydioxanone, or PDO. One of the safest materials that can be implanted in our bodies. This same material is also utilized during heart surgeries.
It is considered a minimally invasive procedure for the face, neck or jowls; however, if you suffer from flabby skin on your breasts, butt, neck, upper chest or even above the skin on your knees, this surgery could be the dramatic change you are looking for.
There are a few different options to choose from while considering this procedure. Here at Integrated Aesthetics, we are happy to offer three procedures. Each one uses a unique technique of achieving the look you are after.

The Newest Procedure to Lift Sagging Facial Skin
Integrated Aesthetics is excited to announce they are offering the Silhouette InstaLift, a new minimally-invasive technique to lift sagging facial skin.
Sagging skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette InstaLift is a simple in-office procedure to re-contour your face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance.
Our physicians have received comprehensive training on this breakthrough anti-aging treatment. We can answer all of your questions about the procedure and create a treatment plan to ensure you achieve the natural-looking results you desire.
During a short in-office procedure, Dr. Cho will insert the patented Silhouette InstaLift sutures to lift the deeper layers of the skin in your mid-face or cheek area. The treatment does not require general anesthesia, and typically takes 45 minutes. You will see results right away and the recovery time is minimal.
The unique Silhouette InstaLift sutures are naturally absorbed by your body over time. The sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body while stimulating the production of collagen to aid in healthy skin renewal for natural-looking, long lasting results. Cosmetic medical techniques have advanced greatly in recent years. Many aspects of facial aging can be addressed with safe and effective procedures that offer little downtime and natural-looking results. While wrinkles, brown spots and lost volume can be treated with existing procedures, until now there was no minimally invasive way to lift the deeper layers of facial skin, one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance.

What are Nova Threads? They are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO (polydioxanone) absorbable suture. Polydioxanone suture is a sterile monofilament synthetic absorbable suture composed of materials that will provide wound support for longer periods of time compared to other synthetic absorbable sutures.
PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.
A youthful and healthy face has a natural “V-shape” appearance to it. With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts over time. Unfortunately, this can cause your facial shape to have a drooping appearance as your nasolabial becomes more prominent and the jawline looses definition. The reposition of the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it has been lost. Thanks to modern medicine, we are now able to give a lift using non-surgical procedures that can tighten and firm our facial features.
In medical terms “Selective Inflammatory Response”, it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & Microneedling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting PDO threads we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally!
Your Skin Gently Reacts to the Inserted Threads
Yes, PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.
It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin!
