INSTALIFT THREADS®

InstaLift Threads® can be an effective way to rid yourself of droopy skin, wrinkles, and fine lines without the need for the surgical methods necessary with a traditional facelift. At Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we’re completely dedicated to ensuring that each and every patient leaves our facility looking and feeling better than they have in years. Contact our office in Dallas, TX, to schedule your consultation with Dr. Hanz.

What are InstaLift Threads®?

While a facelift can be an incredible option for removing loose skin on the face, it also requires surgery that can be painful and require extensive recovery time.

Our team at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is incredibly experienced in performing this groundbreaking procedure to help our patients in Dallas, TX achieve an improved contour of their face. During your consultation, Dr. Hanz can create a custom treatment plan to perfectly address the needs of your face.

Frequently Asked Questions

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR INSTALIFT THREADS?

We usually recommend InstaLift threads for patients who have lax skin that is noticeably aging their face. Additionally, the treatment can be beneficial for patients hoping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can even be combined with injectable treatments in order to further enhance the results. However, InstaLift threads are typically only suitable for mild to moderate cases of loose skin. Patients with severe skin are likely better candidates for a traditional facelift.

HOW DO INSTALIFT THREADS WORK?

This procedure is performed using local anesthesia in one of our private treatment rooms. Dr. Hanz will then mark each of the entry and exit points on your face with a marker in order to ensure optimal results. At this point, he will begin threading the dissolvable sutures through the skin, lifting up the skin in the process. These sutures will stay under the skin, slowly dissolving over the coming months, which encourages the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin: two vital proteins when it comes to the overall health of the skin. In total, this can usually be completed in about an hour.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM INSTALIFT THREADS?

As soon as the procedure is over, patients are free to return home to rest. During these first few days, patients may notice some redness, bruising, and/or swelling, though these side effects should be minor and subside on their own. While results will be noticeable immediately, they will only continue to improve in the following months. Most patients can expect these results to last for about 18 months before they may begin to dissipate.

What is Lipo AI?

LipoAI's  involves identifying fat without immediate extraction, allowing Dr. Hanz to precisely target and dissolve fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues. This targeted approach not only minimizes bodily trauma and reduces the risk of vascular or nerve damage but also promotes skin tightening for smoother, more natural-looking results. By liquefying fat prior to removal, the procedure ensures a gentler extraction process, contributing to enhanced patient comfort and expedited post-operative recovery.

What is Renuvion®?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if Lipo ai is right for me?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure. Renuvion is an amazing non-surgical solution for reducing wrinkles and rhytides, but it’s not for everybody. This procedure requires recovery time and is not recommended for patients with darker skin tones but is limited to patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I, II, or III. Dr. Kevin Hanz will talk to you about your goals, your lifestyle, and whether Renuvion is the right option for you.

What can Lipo ai Treat?

LipoAI can treat various areas of the body where excess fat accumulates, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, buttocks, and submental region (under the chin). It's effective for both large and small areas, providing precise contouring and skin tightening.

    How does Lipo ai work?

    Lipo AI skin tightening treatment works by using laser energy to target the deeper layers of the skin. The laser heats the collagen fibers in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tighter, smoother skin over time.

    Why is this treatment good for my skin?

    This treatment is beneficial for the skin because it stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness. It also promotes cell renewal, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.

    Will I be asleep during the Lipo AI treatment?

    Lipo AI does not require a patient to be asleep or undergo general anesthesia. The procedure may be completed with a patient awake. Patients are given a light sedative to feel more relaxed and insure a pleasant, comfortable experience. Many of our patients prefer to avoid general anesthesia and really appreciate the awake approach. Having said that, we do offer the possibility of full anesthesia for those patients that may prefer to be more asleep during the procedure.

    What should I expect during the recovery time?

    During the recovery period, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. The recovery typically involves significantly less down time than other forms of Liposuction. Symptoms are usually mild and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. Patients may appreciate initial results in as little as 2-3 days, though maximum benefits may take several weeks to months to become fully apparent as the body heals and remodels.
