Aging is a privilege, but that doesn’t mean you should accept the wrinkles you see in the mirror each day. You can redefine your best and hit the refresh button on your appearance with proven treatments that restore your skin’s youthful elasticity and radiance. That’s where we come in.

At The Youth Fountain, we offer thread lift treatments, which are exploding in popularity right now for their ability to impart dramatic age-defying improvements without surgery and with minimal to no downtime. Thread lifts can give you that years-younger look you’ve been dreaming about, or admiring in others. You may have heard of thread lifts, and that they involve sutures placed underneath the skin. If that sounds invasive or makes you cringe a bit, we’re here to reassure you that there’s truly nothing to worry about. A thread lift is a well-tolerated and efficient procedure. Here’s how it works:

A Thread Lift lifts and smooths the skin with absorbable sutures, which are placed under the skin to provide support and structure to lax, sagging areas . The sutures will dissolve over a period of six months, but they keep working by stimulating new collagen growth for further skin tightening and lifting benefits lasting up to two years following treatment.

By the way, the healing response triggered by thread lifts not only results in new collagen growth, but also increases the size of your small blood vessels (which allows them to bring in more nutrients), improves skin texture and elasticity, and more.

The thread lift procedure starts with the application of a topical anesthetic, followed by a disinfectant, and then injection with a local anesthetic, so you feel comfortable throughout the procedure. The threads are then inserted beneath the skin. Once the threads are anchored, they are gently pulled to actually lift the skin. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes, but can take longer depending on the size of the treatment area and how many areas are being treated.

A few tips before your Thread Lift:

  • Avoid alcohol and other blood-thinning substances such as vitamin E, omega fish oils, and gingko at least one to two days before and after the procedure. One week before the procedure, any blood thinning medications should be discontinued, with the guidance of your physician.
  • One day before and two days after the procedure, it is important to avoid saunas, steam rooms, or heavy exercise.
  • For the two weeks following your procedure, you should avoid any activity that requires you to open your mouth excessively. You should also sleep on your back to let the swelling subside and keep the sutures properly aligned.

Best of all, your incredible results can last for up to two years! Thread lifting is a significant yet natural-looking way to reclaim your youthful glow. Drs. Rada and Emil Shakov bring their extensive expertise and compassionate care to every procedure, and your results will show it.
