Looking younger and having smoother, tighter skin is a top beauty goal for many patients. As we age and expose our skin to the sun, harsh elements, and certain lifestyle choices, it can begin to reveal certain signs of aging.
Wrinkles, loose skin, and shifting facial contours can cause your overall appearance to change and look older and tired. Thankfully, there are many options to help rejuvenate your appearance and enhance your overall look. Some of the best ways to target and reduce these unwanted side effects of aging are through procedures that slim the face, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve skin laxity.
But with so many options, it can be difficult to figure out which is best for you. In particular, procedures like facelifts and other plastic surgery solutions are often the first thing people think of when it comes to cosmetic anti-aging. While these are often solutions that work for many, there are plenty of other options to explore. At the Bonakdar Aesthetics, we offer a wide range of customizable services such as Threadlift procedures to patients that want to boost collagen production and achieve anti-aging results.
The Mini Threadlift is a non-surgical treatment option that can help target common signs of aging and help lift and re-contour facial skin. It stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, which helps to naturally reverse blemishes that develop over time, such as sagging skin or wrinkles and fine lines.
In our late twenties, our bodies start to produce less and less collagen, which means free radicals start to form beneath the skin. Sun damage, smoking, changes in the body, and changes over time can all cause free radicals to form and increase the appearance of aged or tired skin.
Threadlift is an innovative treatment option that is unlike a facelift, as it doesn’t involve surgery or deep sedation. It’s recommended for patients who want to see improvement in the mid-face region, such as under the eyes and around the cheeks, as well as the lower face and jaw and neck sagging.
Threadlift uses temporary sutures to target facial sagging and loose skin in the mid-face area.
The threads are made using a safe and absorbable material composed of a biocompatible material called polydioxanone (PDO). These are inserted in strategic areas throughout the face to give a noticeable and visible lift to the skin. The threads are pulled taut and lifted upwards to achieve the patient’s desired contouring effect. The threads dissolve on their own, while simultaneously stimulating tissue deep within the skin to help produce collagen naturally.
While Threadlift procedures target some of the same areas and achieve similar results to some of our facial fillers, the Mini Threadlift procedure is not a dermal filler. It uses temporary sutures to achieve the desired result, as opposed to needles and injections, like fillers.
The Mini Threadlift treatment process begins with a consultation with Dr. Bonkadar. The process takes around two hours in total, with 15 minutes for prep and imaging, 45 minutes for numbing, and around 30 to 45 minutes for the actual treatment.
During your consultation, you will be able to discuss your desired results, current facial management treatment (such as fillers or past cosmetic enhancements), and previous medical history. Your initial treatment will be planned and scheduled.
From there, you will be able to let the results settle in before scheduling additional appointments down the line. Many patients opt to have treatments every 6 to 12 months for maintenance. Oftentimes, these are combined alongside filler treatments to achieve the best possible result.
The results of Mini Threadlift treatments will vary based on each customer’s unique needs, skin laxity, and facial structures.
Typically, patients will see a lift immediately after the sutures are placed, with improvements over time as collagen production is naturally stimulated. This typically lasts 12 to 24 months, depending on the extent of treatment and the area.
