Many people who have tried to lose weight end up regaining it later on. If this is something you have experienced in the past you may wonder why it is so hard to maintain weight loss.

Did you know losing weight causes changes that make you feel hungry and less satisfied after eating? Also, your body goes into an energy-saving mode and burns fewer calories. This can slowly lead to the lost weight being regained.

Saxenda® can help reduce weight by enhancing the way your body regulates appetite. Your body produces a number of appetite regulators. One of these is called GLP-1. Saxenda® works like GLP-1 by binding to and activating GLP-1 receptors, to decrease feelings of hunger while increasing feelings of fullness, so you are eating less.

Thread Lift

Types of Thread Lift

There are a few types of thread lifts, the main difference is longevity, stiffness and tensile strength:

  • PDO (Polydioxanone) dissolves after 6 – 9 months
  • PLLA (Poly L Lactic Acid) dissolves after 12 – 18 months
  • PCL (Polycaprolactone) dissolves after 24 – 36 months

Considerations

Although thread lifts are advantageous, patients must maintain a realistic expectation for this procedure. While thread lifts can certainly produce visible changes, they will only be able to lift the face by a few millimeters, as such they create a more subtle and natural look than facelift surgery. Thread lifts are more suitable for mild to moderate cases of skin laxity. Once thread lifts are no longer feasible, patients may have to consider facelift surgery.

The patient needs to understand that no lifting technique is permanent, that being said a facelift surgery will produce longer-lasting results than a thread lift. Facelift surgery can last up to a decade whereas a thread lift generally lasts between one to three years.

Maintenance

To get the most out of the treatment, patients can combine thread lift with Exilis, Thermage or Ultherapy. These lasers use heat to stimulate collagen production. By combining these procedures with thread lift you can maximize the overall effect of skin firming and create even more lifting to the neck as well as the face.

While thread lifts can tighten skin, they aren’t designed to address the blemishes of the skin’s surface. As such signs of aging such as age spots, areas of uneven pigmentation and fine lines will require a different technique known as skin resurfacing. During skin resurfacing the top layer of the dermis is removed, stripping away the blemishes. A new more youthful-looking layer of the skin then grows in its place. You can do this through other lasers or fillers. It would be best to consult with the doctor on what works best for your condition.

Other Fat Loss Treatment

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that reduces fat through cryolipolysis (using freezing temperatures to break down fats). The cold does not damage other cells in the same way it does fat cell, therefore by doing CoolSculpting it will not damage the skin or underlying tissue nearby the treated area. Once the fat cells have been destroyed by freezing, they are gradually broken down and removed from the body by the liver.
