If you want to revive the youthful appearance of your skin without the time and expense of surgery, but longer-lasting results than nonsurgical treatments, consider thread lifting for the face and neck. At ZO Skin Centre® in Orange County, we offer thread lifting, a minimally invasive technique that mimics the effects of a surgical facelift. Using polydioxanone (PDO) thread, the same absorbable thread that has been used in medicine for over 20 years, this minimally invasive procedure lifts and tightens the face and neck. The PDO thread is specially designed to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, so the health of the skin is improved over time. If you want to learn more about thread lifting or our other anti-aging treatments, schedule a consultation at ZO Skin Centre® in Laguna Beach or Newport Beach.
"Jamison is awesome! I went in for Botox and wanted it to look natural. It looks amazing! He spent time to discuss the look I was going for as well as my skin care issues. He put me on a skin regimen and super excited to see results which I’m already feeling. Will always go back to Jamison for Botox and ZO for skin care."- M.F. / Yelp / Dec 29, 2022
"Honestly this review is long overdue. I’ve been on a skin care program that was customized for me by NP Jamison, and my skin has NEVER looked this amazing. Jamison is super knowledgeable about each content of the products which really helps him to create a program for you. He’s super sweet. I absolutely love my skin. I never have to wear moisturizer because I’m just so naturally hydrated, but never oily, since being on this program. It is a bit pricey for products to get started, but worth it. I love it!"- R.P. / Yelp / Dec 16, 2022

"May & every staff I had the pleasure to talk to are awesome. I’ve been seeing May for my skin damage and she put me on at home - program, explained every little step, what to expect and she was telling the truth - my skin transformed to a smooth spotless wrinkle free healthy baby skin. May really cares about her clients and whenever I have a question, I text her and she responds right away. You see all these before and after pictures but their regimen really works and you will not regret spending your $$ and time. Having a great result with an amazing mentor and staff - what do you want more? So happy and grateful. Thank you!"- M.T. / Yelp / May 12, 2021

A thread lift may help you if you have moderate to severe signs of aging, but you would rather avoid plastic surgery. You may have tried nonsurgical treatments, like injectable wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, and laser facials, but you want longer-lasting results. A thread lift is designed to create natural-looking results that correct many concerns, including:
Lines and wrinkles
Sagging cheeks or eyebrows
Skin folds and furrows
What to expect
After a consultation to determine that a thread lift is best for your needs and goals, a customized treatment plan will be created and your thread lift will be scheduled. On the day of your treatment, you will relax in one of our treatment rooms as a local anesthetic is injected into the areas of your face that will be addressed. After the anesthesia is active, your ZO® skin care professional will carefully insert the PDO threads. The threads will be attached to the skin tissue and then raised until the desired effect is achieved. The threads will be knotted and cut so they can blend as the skin heals. Patients may have minor redness or bruising that will resolve on its own in 1 – 2 weeks. Since the process is minimally invasive, you should not see any scarring once the skin has healed. Over time, the threads will slowly break down, and then safely absorbed and eliminated by the body. The results of a thread lift will vary in each patient, but most patients see improvement for 2 – 3 years. You should talk to your skin care professional about ZO® skin treatments and products that will help to extend your results.
