Thread Treatments

Eyebrow Lift

Thread treatments are a natural way to lift and stimulate collagen and elastin. Whether you want a natural lift (no fillers) or want to continue to slow down the effects of aging in between filler, threads are a good treatment. It is best to use thread treatments when you first start to see the signs of saggy skin.

 

To perform the thread treatments the face is divided into three sections. Only do one section at a time and most patients focus on one area of concern.

 

1. Eyebrow Lift - for sagging eyebrows

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

2. Mid Face Lift - to gently lift the cheeks which can move any eye contouring up and gently pulls the cheek up

 

3. Jowl Lift - corrects mild sagging at the jawline

When Carol performs any thread treatments after the initial treatment (lift) she will see you in two months to touch up the threads to ensure you have received the desired results.

Benefits of Threading:

  • Restore a youthful natural appearance

  • Long-lasting results

  • Little to no downtime

  • Minimal to no scarring 

  • No incision

  • May be repeated as necessary

  • Softens sagging, folding, or hollowing in the mid-face

  • Softens jowls along the jawline

  • An excellent alternative to surgical options

  • In-office treatment that lasts 45 to 90 minutes

“Awesome! Highly recommend. It lifted my cheek area and tightened my face to create a youthful appearance.”

Medical Micro-needling Treatments

 

When your skin is healthy it will look its best. Skin Rejuvenation supports healthy skin. Medical micro-needling is an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment. It is used both preventatively - to slow the aging process, or correctively - to improve age-related skin issues.


Specifically, medical micro-needling improves:

  • Wrinkles

  • Elastin & collagen production

  • Lax/saggy skin

  • Premature aging

  • Thin skin

  • Hyper-pigmentation - discoloration

  • Sun damage

  • Rosacea

  • Scars

  • Stretch marks



Medical micro-needling uses needles that reach the dermis to produce a natural wound-healing process created by a small handheld automatic device that contains tiny micro-needles and passes over the skin creating tiny micro-wounds. In skincare, there are two levels of Micro-needling - cosmetic & medical. Read our blog to understand the differences.

At SkinTrust we have four levels of medical Micro-needling. We recommend a series of treatments for optimum results.

Basic Micro-needling

Micro-needling is performed using a base of hyaluronic acid to guide the device and plump the skin. Excellent to keep your skin healthy, slow down the aging process, firm your skin if you have lost weight, reduce wrinkles, and improve Rosacea.

 



Combined Modality Treatments

Age-Defying Micro-needling

Signs of age appear on our skin when we lose moisture, collagen, and elastin. This two-part treatment restores youthfulness to your skin. Excellent to correct early aging issues or for dehydrated skin.

Dual Micro-needling

Combining the dynamic dual of medical micro-needling with micro-current stimulates more blood flow, lymph drainage, collagen & elastin production - all resulting in increased wound healing and healthier skin. Excellent to improve lax or saggy skin and aging issues.

PRP Micro-needling

By including PRP (platelet-rich plasma) in the micro-needling treatment you get the ultimate in skin rejuvenation. PRP or growth factors are an additional level of skin rejuvenation. Excellent for all aging issues including discoloration, skin laxity or sagginess, stretch marks, and scars.

Keracell Recuperate

With each micro-needling treatment, we recommend using the Keracell Recuperate to enhance the healing process. This growth factor serum is formulated with DUO Fusion stem cell technology and copper peptides that assist in the recovery process and enhance the results. We are offering a 10% discount when purchased with a micro-needling treatment.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments

PRP Eye Treatments

This natural treatment using your plasma regenerates extra cells and harnesses the healing power of your own blood. It will improve skin quality, eliminate eye hollowness, or reduce under-eye puffiness. A series of treatments is recommended for best results.

PRP Facial Injections

These injections are recommended in areas of your face where you are starting to see the signs of aging. As a natural skin rejuvenator, they improve your concerns while slowing down the signs of aging.
