4 Reasons The “Lunchtime Lift” is Back & Better Than Ever

The Thread Lift, also known as the “Lunchtime Lift,” was made popular by Gwyneth Paltrow in the early 2000’s. While she boasted fantastic results, the Thread Lift was a new procedure and had a few kinks to be worked out. But now, around a decade later, the Lunchtime Lift is back and better than ever. It has been dramatically improved and is helping people across the country lift sagging skin and feel young and vibrant again.

This skin lifting treatment is a popular choice in Hollywood, LA, New York, and other major cities, but the IZAR Wellness Institute brings the Thread Lift to SouthPark, Charlotte in its Medical / Anti-Aging Center.

First Off, What Exactly is Thread Lift?

As we get older, our skin begins to lose elasticity and we begin to see the signs of aging. Frown lines, crows feet, jowls, and wrinkles can make us appear older than we feel. Thread Lift allows us to do something about it!

Under local anesthetic (making it virtually painless!) your doctor will insert a needle into the affected area and injects threads, which are able to take hold under the skin. These threads can be pulled in one or two different directions, repositioning the skin instantly. The sutures that hold these threads in place dissolve over time and the skin repairs itself, creating new collagen which secures the lift.

4 Reasons to Get a Lunchtime Lift

When we say the Thread Lift procedure has improved, we mean it. Anti-aging medical professionals have been hard at work making it more effective and even safer.

The Procedure has Improved Dramatically

When first introduced, the skin could only be stretched and placed in one direction. Since then, the materials that are now used allow doctors to manipulate tissue in multiple directions. This creates a more natural and functional appearance than ever before.

In addition, the original treatment placed permanent anchors under the skin. This increased the risk for infection. But since then, dissolvable sutures have been introduced. Not only does this cut down on infection risk, it promotes a healing response can help hold the skin in place for long periods of time!

It’s Quick, Minimally Invasive, and Has Very Little Downtime

A typical Lunchtime Lift only takes about one hour to complete. For a procedure that provides such dramatic results, that is an incredibly short amount of time. Since the Thread Lift requires no surgical incisions, you can leave immediately after the process is completed and swelling subsides after only a few days! This is a huge advantage over a facelift, which requires approximately two weeks to recover.

It’s Way More Affordable Than a Surgical Facelift

On top of the extra time spent recovering, facelifts are much more expensive! In some cases, a facelift can cost about ten times more than a Thread Lift. While its results aren’t permanent, they can last 18 months to a few years, proving that long lasting, dramatic results can be achieved without a huge price tag.

The Materials are FDA Approved

We use only the safest, highest quality surgical materials. The procedure utilizes PDO absorbable sutures, which are fully absorbed by the body within four to six months. Did you know that the sutures are among the safest materials in the medical field to be put in the body? This same material is used for open heart surgery and other cardiothoracic surgeries.
