Thread Lifts or Silk Lifts have actually been around for quite a while, but have been gaining more and more popularity recently as an easy facelift alternative. Because of how quickly Contour Thread Lifts are performed and the little down time that is involved, many people refer to it as the “lunch hour facelift.”
Using a hollow needle, a surgeon inserts a “silk-like” thread under the skin, starting near the cheekbone. Since a needle is used, the Thread Lift incisions are minimal and shouldn’t leave any trace of scarring.
When attached, the surgeon can gently tug on the thread to adjust and tighten skin around the eyes, neck, lip, or brow. New collagen forms around each thread to maintain the lifted effect. Four threads are the minimum number needed to lift even the most moderately sagging skin. Results of Thread Lifts are generally compared to those of mini facelifts.
A thread face lift has many advantages over traditional facelifts, besides being able to have it done on a lunch break. Contour Thread Lifts are cheaper and safer than more invasive facelifts. Thread Lifts require only a couple of days of recovery and the results are immediate. Because the procedure is only minimally invasive, there is no need for anesthesia. This means you can actually use a mirror and direct the plastic surgeon where to pull your skin

Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The Mesolift process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. As your skin ages, circulation decreases, and the resulting reduction of oxygen and nutrients hinders your body's ability to flush out toxins. This is what drives premature aging and causes the skin to develop an ashen appearance.
After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. Mesotherapy can be used a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-aging regimens, including botox, laser resurfacing, peels, antioxidants, topical creams and facelifts.
Mesotherapy is also a highly effective rejuvenating treatment. The procedure can be used to tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms and hands. In Europe, women often start treatments in their thirties, but Mesotherapy can prove valuable during any stage of a woman's life.
