What is PDO thread lift? This procedure involves using various lengths of thin sterile needles to embed PDO dissolving threads under the skin. These threads are placed strategically under the dermis where it acts as a frame for lifting and tightening loose and sagging skin. The material from which these threads are made from, polydioxanone, is a safe substance that keeps the skin in a new tightened state for 3 to 4 months while collagen production begins. All PDO sutures are FDA-approved and one of the safest materials that can be used in the body.
The result will be a fresh, well rested, firmer look. And in the process, the threads will support new collagen formation her lasting results. This procedure takes over where Botox and Fillers can’t help. For the right candidate, the results are amazing. You can see below, the how it lifts and tightens the area of the jawline.

“Where do I start…?” is the question we often hear from clients, overwhelmed by the many options available to improve their skin, and ultimately their appearance. “Chemical peels, micro-needling, IPL, Fractional Skin Resurfacing, Botox, fillers, topicals…what does it all mean, what should I do, where do I start???” Relax, it’s going to be OK, we’ve got this!
To really see what’s going on with the health of your skin, we start with a skincare consultation using a VISIA Skin Analysis. It gives us, and you, a very clear picture of your skin, from the top surface down to 3mm. The damage that lies under the surface may not be a problem today, but it will be down the road. Here’s how the VISIA works. It scans your skin by taking a series of 3 quick pictures and digitally captures key visual information. It measures skin pigmentation, pore size, porphyrins (bacteria), UV spots, photodamage (typically from sun damage), texture (smoothness) and wrinkles. These categories are further analyzed as percentile scores. The higher the percentile, the better. It compares your skin’s features to others of the same sex, age, and skin type and will also provide you with your “TruSkin” age. For example, a 45-year-old woman with excellent skin may be evaluated with the skin of a 38-year-old, and vice versa.
After you have celebrated or cried, (we’ve seen both) an esthetician will customize a treatment plan that works for you, both short and long-term, depending on your lifestyle, budget, etc. You will be given a folder with your VISIA images and results, recommendations, costs and a treatment plan. We never want to sell you something you don’t fully understand.
The bottom line, knowledge is power! An educated client is always our goal. When you can see what’s going on with your skin and understand what it means, you can then address it, select a plan, and start seeing visible improvements. We are here to help you navigate the many treatments, without being pushy. Take the first step to healthier, more beautiful skin, call our office and schedule a Visa Skin Analysis! We are your skin care experts servicing Fenton, Grand Blanc, Flint, and more. You can also Book Online right now.
When you think about aging, specifically the face, you probably think about lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. These are very common concerns for most people. Back in the day, if a woman (or man) wanted to improve their appearance, a face-lift was pretty much the only option. Some face-lifts are done well, but some result in an unnatural pulled appearance, or what we call a “windblown face”. While face lifts have their time place, we now know that restoring VOLUME into the face conveys youth, and can take years off your appearance! Let me explain. When you were younger, you had nice, round “apples” for cheeks. As we age, we not only lose the fat pads that create the apples, we also lose some of the bone that supports it as well. The results are cheeks that look flat and deflated, with the possibility of now looking “bottom heavy”. (Gravity…it’s not our friend). When you add volume back into the cheeks, it’s like a mini face lift. The good news? It’s fast, it’s easy, it’s relatively painless and it’s NOT surgery! No down time is one of the reasons so many people are choosing filler versus surgery. (Not to mention the cost). Another thing to consider is that age doesn’t matter. If you’re over 18 and have always wanted a little more fullness in your cheeks, we can do that too!
What is this miracle in a syringe? It’s Voluma XC, one of the many Juvederm products. (Voluma is made especially for cheeks). We love it because of its ability to lift, restore and sculpt, and we are impressed with its longevity. It can last up to 2 years! The results are immediate, subtle, and natural. Voluma is made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that’s found in the body, making the chance for any reaction or allergy very low. It is injected with an ultra-fine needle, and there is lidocaine added to minimize discomfort. Patients sometimes experience temporary swelling or slight bruising, but not always. If you have cheeks that leave you flat, we know you will LOVE Voluma!!
