What Is A Thread Lift?
Board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter can recontour your face with a nonsurgical facelift technique using polydioxanone (PDO) threads. Known as a thread lift, this aesthetic treatment can dramatically change your facial appearance without cutting or general anesthesia. Many people find surgical facelifts intimidating because of the surgical process, high cost of surgery, and the weeks of downtime that go with them. A PDO thread lift at Xage Medical Spa can treat the skin around the eyes, the mouth, the brow, and the mid-face. If you would like the opportunity to talk to Dr. Porter about a thread lift, we invite you to make an appointment for a consultation. You can also ask about our other services like wrinkle relaxer injections or dermal fillers to accentuate your results. Call today and schedule your consultation.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Do I qualify For A Nonsurgical Facelift?
You may qualify for a thread lift if you want to look younger, even though you have some lax skin on your cheeks, neck, or jawline. If you have mild looseness (with facial folds such as marionette lines and tear troughs) and do not wish to have surgery or the downtime of a conventional facelift, you may be a candidate for a thread lift. Dr. Porter can customize your thread lift to match your personal cosmetic goals. Schedule a consultation at Xage Medical Spa in order to determine if you are a good candidate.
Our Thread Lift Techniques
In one of our private treatment rooms, we will numb your face before starting the PDO thread lift process. Dr. Porter will assess your skin and make marks on your skin with a washable marker before threading the treatment area. Then, he will insert the thread with a special medical cannula. Once threaded into your face, the unique sutures will naturally induce the production of collagen to aid in healthy skin renewal. They will also be absorbed by your body over time.
What To Expect After a Thread Lift
Your recovery time for a thread lift will not be as long as a traditional facelift. In fact, you should have zero downtime after a thread lift. You may experience tenderness, swelling, and bruising in the area for a few days. You might also see an immediate lift in your facial skin, but your skin will look better as the collagen in your skin regenerates (up to six months). Dr, Porter may suggest that you have follow-up thread lifts after 2 – 3 years.
