Have you noticed your skin beginning to droop and sag overtime? Does your skin lack the youthful volume that it once had?
As we age, our skin continues to lose hydrating properties that keep our skin looking youthful and firm. If you are searching for a solution for lifting and firming your facial skin, but are not willing to undergo invasive surgery, the professionals at Franklin Skin and Laser can help. We offer the revolutionary thread lift to tighten and firm your skin without the need for surgery.
What is the thread lifts?Threads are new and advanced threads that are FDA-cleared for safely and effectively correct volume loss within skin. The threads are made using polydioxanone, which is recognized as the safest threads to be used in the body. This is a minimally-invasive procedure that works to instantly lift sagging skin, smooth away wrinkles, and refine your facial contours with no required downtime. These revolutionary threads do not require anchoring to the bone like with old threads. This is beneficial for minimizing side effects or adverse outcomes. Once delivered, the threads activate natural collagen production overtime and are then absorbed by the body in 6-18 months – leaving you with noticeable and natural-looking results. This is the perfect solution for improving sagging cheeks, brows, and other areas of the body for a rejuvenated and younger-looking appearance.
How Does it Work?Prior to treatment, an initial consultation is required in order to create a plan for treatment that is tailored to your unique skin needs. Treatments are performed using the specially designed threads. These threads are composed of hypodermic microneedles that contain an absorbable suture. During the procedure, the threads are gently inserted into specific areas of the skin. The skin is then lifted and repositioned for a more youthful appearance. Once the threads are in place, the skin tissue reacts to the threads on a cellular level by encouraging natural collagen production. Following treatment, as the threads work to encourage the natural production of collagen and healing, you can continue to notice continued Improvements in the appearance of your skin
ResultsFollowing the thread lifting, you may experience slight discomfort which can be managed with basic pain reducers such as advil. The results from the thread lift can be instantly noticeable and continue to improve in about two weeks following treatment as your skin continues to produce collagen. Results form a thread lift last longer than the life of the thread. However, additional threads can always be inserted long after your procedure if needed. This cutting-edge and effective procedure can have you looking and feeling younger without the need for surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Traditional hair removal methods, like shaving, waxing, and plucking, all cut, shorten, or remove the actual hair from the follicle for temporary results. After a few days or weeks, the hair grows back, and you have to repeat the treatment process to maintain your results. Laser hair removal treatments are so effective because they work differently.
The laser energy emitted by the device is attracted to pigment. It targets the pigment in the hair follicle, heating the follicle and damaging it so that it stops growing hair. After completing the recommended number of sessions, you will notice a significant reduction in hair growth. This device can help clients achieve their desired results, that being hair-free and smoother skin, without negatively impacting the surrounding skin in any way.
Are the treatments painful?
The Candela GentleMax Pro® is known for delivering a comfortable laser hair removal treatment. We will take every step to promote your comfort throughout the treatment, and with that in mind, you can schedule your appointments with confidence, knowing that you won’t have to endure significant discomfort to achieve hair-free skin.
What areas can it treat?
The Candela GentleMax Pro® laser device can help clients eliminate unwanted hair from virtually anywhere on the face and body. Some of the most common areas include the arms, legs, back, chest, and face. We can even remove unwanted hair from intimate areas for men and women and perform full-body treatments. You’ll have the option of treating one or multiple areas throughout your treatment plan, and we can customize your treatments as needed.
What kind of results can I expect?
With each treatment you schedule, you’ll notice less hair in the treatment area. You’ll also experience the surprising benefit of laser hair removal: skin rejuvenation. The laser energy can help rejuvenate the skin in the treatment area as it targets and destroys hair within the hair follicles by increasing natural collagen and elastin production.
How long do treatments take?
One of the many benefits of the Candela GentleMax Pro® laser system is that it can deliver quick treatments. You can schedule your treatments and get back to your daily activities in less than an hour. Typical treatments can take 30 minutes. Once we learn more about the size and number of areas that you want to treat, we can give you a better idea of how long to plan for your treatment sessions.
How many treatments do I need?
The total number of treatments you will need to achieve your desired results will depend on many factors, including the number of hair follicles in an active growth phase in the treatment area at your time of treatment as well as the size of the area or the number of areas you want to treat. Once we learn more about the areas you want to treat, we can customize your treatment plan accordingly.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we can give you a better idea of how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired results. We offer seven package sessions as well as complementary touchup treatments for up to two years after completing those sessions. We can give you more information about what your treatment plan may look like and our complementary touchup sessions at your consultation.
Who is a candidate?
Because this device can treat a wide range of skin types and tones, most clients will qualify for treatment. However, laser hair removal requires pigmentation. The laser light targets pigment, so if there is no pigment in the hair follicle, the treatment will not be effective, and the laser device won’t effectively destroy the follicle.
For that reason, certain hair colors may not respond to the treatment process. Our complimentary consultations provide the perfect avenue for you to learn more about laser hair removal and discuss your desired treatment areas. Then we can evaluate your hair and skin color in person to confirm your treatment eligibility and move forward with the process.
