About Thread Lifts
- Often referred to as a “lunchtime lift,” a thread lift uses absorbable sutures to offer a tighter, more youthful aesthetic appearance to the face. Skilled plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas perform thread lift treatments with PDO NovaThreads as a minimally invasive procedure for patients who do not desire the downtime associated with a surgical facelift. At our Santa Rosa, CA facility, this procedure is provided in one of our spacious, comfortable treatment rooms. A thread lift works by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin in order to produce healthier, firmer skin. To learn more, contact Allegro MedSpa Santa Rosa to schedule your initial consultation and get one step closer to achieving a refreshed complexion.
"I visited the novato location and she was amazing. I had lip and under the eye injections. No bruising and perfect"- D.K. / Yelp / May 25, 2019
"My experience at Allegro MedSpa was wonderful! Kelsey performed my procedures that day and I could not have felt more reassured that I was making the right choices to meet my specific needs and desires. Her experience quelled any anxiety that crept up. I had complete peace trusting her suggestions and advice for not only treatment now but beneficial procedures in the future.😀Kelsey was patient, engaged, generous and made me feel like I was the most important person in her life for the time I was with her! I will absolutely be asking for Kelsey again in the future!"- J.D. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"I was at Allegro for some voluma in my cheeks. Kelsey was great about discussing what I wanted and suggested additional juvederm for some areas that have been bothering me. I told her I bruise easily and she kept icing my face after each area was injected. I’ve never had anyone take such care to try to reduce bruising. My appointment was yesterday and yes I have bruising, but I can’t imagine how much worse I would look if Kelsey hadn’t taken such time and care with me. I can’t wait to see how great I look once this bruising goes away!Thank you Kelsey!"- S.K. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"First let me say, absolutely amazing staff! I have been here twice, first time for a skin consultation and skin care routine. Came away with a skin care program that suited my needs as well as a friendly consultation that made me feel so comfortable. (I don't often go anywhere with out my make up on, but everyone made me feel "normal" and beautiful and accepted for me) My second time I visited the MedSpa, (along with my Aunt) I met with Kelsey! And let me say...loud and absolutely clear!.....She is truly awesome! Kind....gentle...down to Earth.....professional and very informative! This was my first time looking into any type of "refresher".....and so naturally I had some anxiety about what I should and shouldn't do. Kelsey, was sooooo patient and kind and helped me (and my Aunt) with my/our decisions...as well as what was appropriate for me and my needs. SO thankful for her advice and wisdom! Absolute hands down....I had such a wonderful experience! Thank you Allegro MedSpa!....Oh!..and the lovely girls at the desk?...All smiles and treated me like family. You guys made my nerves turn into excitement and joy! I will definitely be back again. Looking forward to it!"- S.J. / Google / Feb 13, 2020
"When treatment day arrived, I was a bit anxious as to what would actually happen and how it would feel. My pleasant surprise was that it went so smoothly with no discomfort. The staff were so pleasant and timed things so well that it felt more like a facial. The day after there was some tenderness in my neck but that had been the area of my most serious concern and needed most work. Other than tenderness there was no noticeable after effects and I wondered if it had worked at all. Much to my surprise 3 months later friends and family started noticing and commenting on my refreshed look. Up close I could see the noticeable effects and was so pleased. Be sure and use the right skin cream and you are set for the next year."- M.C. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
A thread lift procedure can be beneficial for both men and women who are wanting to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. This procedure can also reduce the appearance of sagging skin, as it gently pulls the skin tighter. It also offers immediate results without the downtime or scarring that occurs with a surgical facelift procedure. If you desire natural-looking results for firmer skin, then a thread lift may be the right procedure for you. During a consultation at our Santa Rosa, CA facility, Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas will understand your goals to decide if you are a candidate for a thread lift.
Prior to a thread lift procedure, a local anesthetic may be used to numb the area. A thread lift is performed as an outpatient procedure in one of our minor treatment rooms. The entrance and exit points will be marked before the fine needle is used to insert the thread into the tissue and the skin. The thread will then be pulled gently to tighten the skin in the right direction. The procedure lasts about an hour, but this could vary, depending on the area being treated. Following the treatment, you will be able to return home to recover.
What to Expect
Following a thread lift treatment, you may notice some slight bruising, swelling, and redness. Typically, this takes several days to go away. For most patients, results are seen immediately after the procedure. You will notice that your skin appears more contoured and lifted. We will also provide you with the appropriate aftercare instructions to allow you to recover properly and make sure you achieve optimal results. Follow-up treatments can also be scheduled to help you maintain and refresh your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a thread lift cost?
The cost of a thread lift treatment will vary based on which/how many areas of the face are being treated. At your consultation, Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas will talk with you to determine your needs and goals in order to create a treatment plan that is best suited for you. From there, they will be able to estimate your costs and provide information about your payment options and the methods we take at our facility.
Should I get a thread lift or a facelift?
Oftentimes, a thread lift is better suited for individuals with mild to moderate aging concerns. A facelift may be more ideal for patients with more advanced signs of aging and who desire longer-lasting results. A thread lift can enhance the appearance of loose, sagging skin; however, it cannot eliminate excess skin. Before your procedure, you will have a consultation to discover which procedure will be optimal for you and your goals.
Does a thread lift leave scars?
A thread lift does not require incisions like a surgical facelift does, which means there will be no scarring. The small needle that is utilized for a thread lift treatment makes tiny wounds in the skin that will heal if treated properly and leave no visible scar. We will also give you the necessary aftercare instructions to allow your skin to heal without any issues.
Can I combine a thread lift with other treatments?
Yes, a thread lift can be combined with other treatments to help you achieve optimal results. Most often, a thread lift is performed in conjunction with other nonsurgical procedures, such as dermal fillers or wrinkle relaxers. This allows for restored volume and the diminishing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for younger-looking skin.
Does a thread lift look natural?
Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas are experienced plastic surgeons who can provide a thread lift procedure that yields a desirable and natural outcome for Santa Rosa, CA patients. They will formulate a customized procedure plan that is ideal for you and your needs. This ensures that you receive results that best suit your facial structure and wanted look.
