If you want to lift that saggy skin that’s come on due to aging, but you aren’t ready for surgery, a EuroThreads® lift is your best option. Raisa Howard, NP, provides this remarkable procedure that involves injecting resorbable surgical sutures just under the skin to stimulate collagen growth and strengthen the areas that support your skin. Call LA Skincare Center in El Segundo, California, to find out more about how you can look younger with this effective, minimally invasive treatment.


How does a EuroThreads lift work?

EuroThreads is made from biodegradable polymers known as polydioxanone (PDO) sutures. These threads are often used for medical applications, such as cardiothoracic surgery.

The threads are fully absorbed by the body within 4-6 months. They cause no scar tissue.

When these threads are injected just under the skin, they raise and tighten sagging skin. The threads pull at lax tissues, giving you an immediate more youthful look. The process continues to boost your youthful, lifted look by stimulating the production of collagen, a protein that contributes to the elasticity of your skin, and enhancing blood vessels.

The EuroThreads also cause fat tissue to contract, further tightening your skin.

How does a EuroThreads lift give you the look of a face-lift without surgery?

A EuroThreads lift offers the least invasive and most cost-effective way to achieve the look of a face-lift, without actually going under the knife. EuroThread fights off the signs of aging, including:

  • Facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, lines around the mouth, and nasolabial folds
  • Creases under and around the eyes
  • Sunken or loose cheeks
  • Slack neck tissue
  • Sagging jowls and jawlines

EuroThreads can also treat sagging skin on the body, such as loose skin on the upper arms and stomach. Ask the team at LA Skincare Center about how a EuroThreads lift can boost your look.

How does a EuroThreads lift mimic a nose job?

A traditional rhinoplasty, commonly called a nose job, takes weeks and months to recover. A EuroThreads lift can lift and strengthen the tissue that surrounds your nose to improve its appearance and give a profile that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Raise your concerns about your nose’s appearance with Raisa to find out if a EuroThreads lift is your solution.

What should I expect during a EuroThreads lift?

A EuroThreads lift involves no incisions or blood loss. Raisa gives you a local anesthetic to reduce sensation as she inserts the threads in strategic places using a specially made needle. The threads are not visible to the eye, but they are effective in anchoring the skin and lifting it upwards.

The procedure lasts about 15-30 minutes, depending on your treatment plan.
