Your smile is an integral component of your facial esthetics, and while the color and symmetry of your teeth help create a beautiful smile, the surrounding facial features frame it. Any improvements to your smile enhance the beauty of your entire face, while firmly defined facial skin highlights the attractiveness of your smile. With this in mind, your Marco Island, Florida, dentist is delighted to add a new minimally invasive skin tightening procedure as part of its slate of personalized cosmetic dentistry services. Rapidly gaining popularity as an alternative to more invasive facial procedures, V Soft Lift® Rejuvenation & Lifting Threads quickly firm facial areas displaying sagging, wrinkles, fine lines, folding, hollowing, and other age-related facial skin concerns.
V Soft Lift® Rejuvenation & Lifting Threads are FDA-approved for contouring facial features and strategically building skin volume. Made of a complex sugar-based substance called polydioxanone (PDO), the threads are designed to be inserted into distinct facial areas and then maneuvered in ways that tighten the overlaying skin. The procedure delivers immediate lifting and tightening results that also help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. While the inserted threads naturally dissolve over time, they also stimulate neovascularization and collagen and elastin production in the treated areas, which adds longer-term volume and skin texture improvements.
With six years of clinical research and 30 years of use as sutures in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery, the FDA approved the treatment for contouring facial skin features in 2020.
V Soft Lift® works with a selection of different threads and three techniques, which can be combined or used separately depending on skin type, treatment area(s), desired results, and other factors. Thread types include smooth, cogged, and barbed, which come in varied sizes to account for differing skin thicknesses, treatment locations, and treatment goals. The lifting technique typically relies on cogged or barbed threads that anchor into the skin for ease of contouring. The smoothing process uses smaller smooth threads that are inserted in a hashtag pattern to generate uniform collagen production in the targeted area. Patients can also combine the smoothing technique with dermal filler treatment for an even greater boost in skin volume.
The facial contours that frame your smile are just as important as the teeth and gums themselves. When conducting a smile analysis, your Marco Island dentist assesses the surrounding facial tissues and other facial features to determine how they might complement each other. Adding V Soft Lift® treatment to other cosmetic dentistry options, such as dental veneers, crowns, or professional teeth whitening, ensures you will light up the room with the most beautiful smile possible.
Dental provision of professional facial esthetic treatments—such as V Soft Lift® —should not be surprising because dentists receive extensive training in facial-muscle dynamics, safe injection methodology, and esthetic mouth contouring . Island Tower Dentistry’s Dr. Jonathan Van Dyke is trained and experienced in administering cosmetic Botox and dermal filler injections and recently received training from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics in PDO thread lifting.
