A PDO Thread Lift (NovaThreads) is a non-invasive alternative to a traditional facelift and provides skin tightening and long-term textural improvement.
NovaThreads are absorbable sutures that are placed percutaneously with minimal discomfort and downtime. The barbed threads create tightening and lifting. The smooth threads generate collagen.
CoolSculpting® employs a process known as Cryolipolysis. (“Cryo” = cold + “lipo” = fat cells + “lysis” = cell death and removal.) During treatment, stubborn fat deposits are subjected to controlled cooling.
The controlled cooling safely penetrates the skin. Subcutaneous fat cells begin to freeze. This ruptures the cell’s membrane. The ruptured fat cells are flagged for apoptosis –cell death and removal.
Over the passage of several weeks, the body’s immune system gathers the demolished fat cells. Frozen fat cells ultimately exit the body as waste. These fat cells cannot return or be replaced.
