EuroThreads is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical lifting technique, ( also known as thread lifting) which utilizes dissolving sutures to lift and tighten the facial skin and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. The threads used during the procedure promote the natural production of collagen for a rejuvenated appearance that continues to glow even after the threads have dissolved. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michele Sasmor is pleased to offer EuroThreads thread lifting for the faces of our Newburyport, MA area patients who are in search of a lifted look that does not require surgery. Schedule a consultation at RiverSong Plastic Surgery to learn more about this exciting offering.
EuroThreads candidates are interested in a refreshed and rejuvenated look without going under the knife. This procedure is effective in combating the signs of aging and can be utilized on the lips, jowls, cheeks, neck, and other areas of the face. Patients often combine the treatment with other noninvasive procedures to amplify their results. Complementary procedures include injectables, microneedling, and chemical peels. EuroThreads are FDA-approved for nonsurgical wrinkle reduction and are scientifically proven to stimulate the production of collagen as the body dissolves the threads. During a consultation, Dr. Sasmor will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure by assessing your skin and analyzing your aesthetic goals.
Your procedure will be performed at our Newburyport, MA facility in the comfort of one of our well-appointed treatment rooms. After you are comfortable and your skin is numbed with topical anesthesia, Dr. Sasmor will insert the threads through predetermined entry points, using a sterile needle and precise techniques. When the threads are in place and the needles removed, Dr. Sasmor will gently massage the tissue in the direction necessary to elevate the treatment area. The threads will remain in place until they are absorbed naturally by your body. The number of threads that will be needed to complete your procedure depends on your aesthetic goals. The RiverSong Plastic Surgery team will discuss this with you prior to your procedure.
What to Expect
After treatment, you may feel mild discomfort and experience redness, swelling, and bruising. These are the common, albeit mild side effects that are associated with the procedure. These side effects will quickly subside in the coming days. Cold compresses can be used to control swelling and discomfort during this time. Some results will be obvious within a few hours of the procedure while optimal results may take up to a few weeks to appear. Many patients choose to combine, at a later date, additional nonsurgical services in their treatment plan in order to further amplify their new results. A follow-up visit may be needed so that Dr. Sasmor can ensure you are healing well and your procedure has achieved the desired outcome.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is one treatment enough?
Many of our patients find that just one treatment with EuroThreads is enough to achieve their desired result. However, a repeat treatment may be necessary to fully reveal the youthful lift they are interested in. Dr. Sasmor will help you decide how many treatments you will need and how long your results will last during a visit to RiverSong Plastic Surgery.
When will I see results?
How quickly your results will be fully revealed depends on a number of variables. Some patients notice results within hours of the procedure while others observe final results a week or more afterward. It may take up to five days for swelling and redness to fade, at which time your results should be obvious.
How much does the procedure cost?
The cost of your procedure will depend on the size of the treatment area and the number of threads needed to achieve your desired result. These factors will be determined during your consultation. After a treatment plan is created, a member of our team will be able to give you the cost of your upcoming procedure and explain your options for payment.
