Learn from and expert as Dr. Alison Abiri answers her client’s most frequently asked question about Threadlifts, the newest treatment for anti-aging.  She sees patients from Bryn Mawr, Wayne, Philadelphia and surrounding neighborhoods.

What can Threadlifts do for me?

Threadlifts can take 5 to 10 years off your face without surgery! The PDO Threadlift uses small sugar strings to create more precise tightening and lifting of your skin.  Results are more subtle than a traditional facelift, with no cutting or scarring, and with minimal downtime. It can lift and plump various areas of the face and body, virtually holding the skin in place where you want it to be.

How do Threadlifts Work?

The science of a PDO ThreadLift lays in the specialized threads being used. PDO (polydioxanone) threads are synthetic, sugar like, fibers that have been widely used for surgery for over 20 years. These threads have been modified to have hooks allowing the threads to be used to lift your skin. When injected beneath your skin and pulled, PDO threads bring your skin upward and backward, creating a more youthful look from the moment they are injected.

How Long Will My Treatment Last?

Threadlifts work in two ways.  First, the thread itself lifts and holds your skin in a more youthful position.  Secondly, threadlifts stimulate your body to produce collagen and elastin.  As time passes after your threadlift, the suture begins to dissolve; however, you still have created new collagen which will continue to give you a more youthful appearance.  Most clients will continue to see benefits from this procedure for more than 12-18 months.  Regular maintenance treatments with additional threads will help extend this benefit for 2-5 years and beyond.

How Much Does it Cost?

Treatment costs vary by location and number of areas being treated and personal goals of the treatment.  Since there is no anesthesia costs or operating room fees, the costs are significantly less than a surgical face lift or neck lift.  Will will be happy to provide you with exact costs prior to your treatment.

Loved this spa and the experience. The tranquility room is beautiful and serene and it was a pleasure to wait there until my facial began. The facial was amazing. Loved the location in Wayne, and lots of parking. Online appointments make it so easy to schedule. I definitely recommend the facial.

My wife had an appointment and she loved the entire experience, she even extended the treatment an extra 30 mins. She raved about Stacey whom she said was phenomenal. the staff treated me great, they provided me with beverages, snacks and updates while I waited. I already have an appointment for my wife to go back in 2 weeks. She was very happy which makes my life happy!!!!

Look no further, THIS SPA IS ABSOLUTE PERFECTION! The massages are heavenly and the facials are the best! [I even brought my daughter in for her first facial - I wanted it to be done right! Thank you, Dr. Alison!] While there are a handful of nice spas on the Main Line, this really is a class above; gorgeous decor, truly RESORT-class! I usually only get massages on vacation and this definitely has that vibe. Check out the pictures! I've recommended it for co-workers traveling from out-of-state (NY'ers, Californians, Chicagoans) - they love it! Fabulous gift idea! Love this place!
