Are you tired of dealing with age signs like droopy cheeks and jowls? If you’re in your 40s or above, you may have started noticing these common signs of facial sagging. Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic procedures offer solutions that can help you achieve a more youthful appearance. One such technique is the Contour ThreadLift™, a minimally invasive non-surgical facelift procedure performed by Dr. Raffi Dishakjian.

Understanding the Contour ThreadLift™

The Contour ThreadLift™ is a non-surgical facelift procedure designed to lift and tighten sagging skin, specifically targeting droopy cheeks and jowls. It involves the use of biodegradable threads that are skillfully inserted under the skin to provide support and lift to the facial tissue. These threads have tiny barbs or cones that anchor them in place, stimulating collagen production and promoting natural skin rejuvenation.

A Perfect Non-Surgical Facelift for Patients in Their 40s

The Contour ThreadLift™ offers a more subtle and natural lift compared to traditional facelift surgery. The procedure helps restore facial contours and tighten sagging skin, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance without a “pulled” or overdone look.

Unlike traditional facelift surgery, this treatment is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia. This means shorter downtime and reduced risks compared to surgery, allowing you to return to your daily activities much sooner.

The Contour ThreadLift™ is highly customizable to address your specific concerns. The threads can be strategically placed to target areas of sagging skin, including the cheeks, jowls, and neck. The threads not only provide an immediate lift but also stimulate the production of collagen, a vital protein responsible for skin elasticity and firmness. As collagen production increases over time, the skin becomes naturally tighter and more youthful-looking.

Instant Results and Quick Recovery

The initial results of a Contour ThreadLift™ are visible immediately, and the full benefits become more apparent as collagen production increases over time. Over the following weeks and months, you can expect continued improvement in skin firmness and tightness.

While a Contour ThreadLift™ does not halt the natural aging process, its effects can last for several years. The procedure helps slow down the appearance of sagging skin, and the increased collagen production prolongs the longevity of the lift.

After the Contour ThreadLift™ procedure, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness in the treated areas. These effects are typically temporary and should subside within a few days.

While recovery times vary from person to person, most individuals can expect to resume their normal activities within a few days. However, it’s important to note that it may take several weeks for the swelling and bruising to completely subside, allowing the results of the Contour ThreadLift™ to become more visible.

While a Contour ThreadLift™ is generally safe, there are potential side effects that you should be aware of. These can include infection, thread migration, asymmetry, and visibility of the threads under the skin. However, these complications are rare when the procedure is performed by a qualified and experienced doctor like Dr. Dishakjian.
