A New Type of Facelift: The Thread Lift

One thing that we always talk about here at our office and one thing that Dr. Jack Bertolino prides himself on is his unique and innovative techniques to help patients get more youthful looking skin. If you have always wanted to get a traditional facelift, but are a little bit nervous about the surgical procedure and the recovery time then you may feel at a loss for what to do. Here at our office, Dr. Bertolino offers patients a unique type of facelift called The PDO Euro Thread Lift.

What’s the PDO Euro Thread Lift?

This unique non-invasive facelift procedure uses the use of threads that are inserted underneath the skin in the face and neck. Once the threads have been properly inserted, then Dr. Jack Bertolino will tighten them which will lift your sagging skin and get rid of a variety of issues like fine lines and wrinkles around the cheeks, mouth, nose, neck, or anywhere else on the face.

Why Is It Popular?

The biggest reason why this surgical procedure is popular amongst our patients is that it is non-invasive which means that there is no surgery required or downtime. In fact, you can come in to get this procedure and then go directly afterward back to work or taking care of your family. One of the greatest things about this is that we can actually call it the lunchtime lift because it is, in fact, what a lot of patients do; they come into our office on their lunch break to get this lift and then go right back to work afterward.

Adds Contour

If you have started to lose elasticity in your skin due to sun damage or old age, then you know how hard it can be to get that perfectly contoured look. However, with the Silhouette Instalift, we will use Silhouette Instalift sutures to lift and tighten the skin around your cheek bones and the mid portion of your face to give you that more contoured appearance.

Non-Invasive

Even though surgical procedures like a facelift give patients extreme results, they are considered to be an invasive surgery meaning that it requires general anesthesia and a whole lot of recovery time. With the Silhouette Lift from Jack Bertolino, however, you can get similar results without any cutting into the face which means that you won’t have to worry about missing work and a lengthy recovery.

Limited Pain

When you get a surgical procedure like a facelift, you can expect pain medications to be your best friend for the first few weeks that you are in recovery. However, with a Silhouette Instalift, you will experience a limited amount of pain that can be treated with an over-the-counter medication like Ibuprofen or Tylenol.

Losing the elasticity around the middle portion of your face can make you look more like a bowl of jelly than an actual human. However, with the non-invasive Silhouette Lift from Dr. Jack Bertolino, you can get a contoured face that will make even Kim Kardashian herself jealous.

Facelift Vs. Silhouette Lift: What You Need to Know

faceliftAging can make you feel like a wise owl in many ways, but it can also make you look a lot older than you’d care to admit. As you age, your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin which can make your fine lines and wrinkles more pronounced. And although things such as Botox can help to temporarily get rid of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes, it may be worth considering getting something that will give you longer lasting results like a lift. However, with two different types of lifts that can help restore your more youthful complexion, it can be hard to differentiate between the two. This article will discuss all that you need to know about facelifts and silhouette lifts. Read on to learn more.

Facelift
A facelift is an invasive surgical procedure that is used to lift the skin on the face to physically tighten it. By making incisions behind the ear and at the hairline, a facelift requires a surgeon like Jack Bertolino to peel the skin away from the face and lift it. Once the skin is lifted, tiny sutures will be used to hold your skin in place. The recovery from a facelift is a bit demanding and extensive. Directly following your surgery, your face will be completely bandaged so that the skin doesn’t move or the sutures don’t come open. Once you are cleared to be sent home, you will be required to rest in bed for about 1-2 weeks. However, although the recovery is a bit grueling, the results will make you feel like you’re in your thirties again.

Silhouette Lift
As a less invasive method to help surgically lift and tighten the skin and your face, the silhouette lift requires minimal downtime. Plus, as an FDA approved procedure, the Silhouette is safe and efficient. By using specially designed silhouette sutures, the silhouette lift is anchored in the facial tissues and fastened to the scalp. The best part of this procedure is that the sutures can be tightened after a few years to give you longer lasting results.

It can be a difficult decision to decide between a facelift and a silhouette lift. However, during your consultation appointment with Dr, Jack Bertolino, you will have your concerns addressed and your questions answered.
