Define and Contour.
Achieve visibly firmer skin with a thread lift.
In this minimally invasive procedure, dissolvable medical-grade sutures are used to produce a subtle, but visible “lift” in the skin. The Uplift procedure simply suspends soft tissue with dissolvable threads. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly to lift and contour the face. The threads also combat aging by boosting the body’s “healing response” and causing your body to produce collagen. This new collagen creates a smoother, more youthful appearance with improved skin tone.
Instantly provides a subtle tightening and contouring effect, increasing collagen production, reducing the signs of aging, non-surgical option to facial surgery

- On the day of your appointment, keep your face clean and free of makeup.
- Do not drink any alcohol prior to the procedure.
- Do not take any aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Motrin, ibuprofen) for seven (7) days before the procedure, as this may contribute to a greater risk of bleeding/bruising.
- Avoid prolonged sun exposure on your face at least 48 hours prior to treatment.
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 3 days post treatment.
- Sleep on your back or side for the first 5 nights post-treatment to avoid putting pressure on the treated areas.
