Thread lifts are a convenient facial rejuvenation alternative that requires no
general anesthesia, hospitalization or long recovery, and gives immediate results that
continue to improve up to 2 months after the procedure.

The best candidates for a thread facelift are in their 30s to 60s and have relatively good
skin tone. During a thread facelift, the cosmetic surgeon inserts thin threads into the
face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads attach to the skin
tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Almost immediately, treated
areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated
appearance. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they
can approve the look of their thread lift while the surgeon works. Once the threads are
knotted, they become hidden within the skin itself, and any scarring that results will be
virtually invisible..

Hair follicles absorbs this light and heat up damaging from its shaft to bulb significantly impeding its ability to re-grow. Numerous hair follicles are treated simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair reduction alternatives. Laser hair reduction requires multiple treatments as it works best when hair are in an early growth stage and all the hair are not in this phase at the same time.

1.One 10-minute treatment
A few tiny injections and within days there's a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.
The Anatomy of the Wrinkle the lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. You may have heard the expression "wearing your emotions on your sleeve," but in reality you wear them on your face. If you're angry or annoyed, for example, you knit your brows together. Underneath your skin, your facial muscles contract, cause a pleating of the overlying skin, and then, as anyone can see, you're frowning.

After years of crinkling and wrinkling, those start to linger longer and can become more pronounced. For women, whose faces tend to be more animated than men's, and whose skin is typically more delicate, these lines may appear exaggerated and more permanent.Improvement may continue for as long as a month, and could last up to 4 months.

 2.ANTI AGEING WITH BOTOX AND FILLERS TREATMENT
The aging process is a natural phenomenon and can be treated with the help of anti-aging treatments that includes Botox, fillers and IAL system. All the treatments are safe and use the minimum invasive technology to treat the skin. 

BOTOX
Botox is the most hassle free and safe anti-aging treatment that can diminish the wrinkles. An outpatient treatment that not only smoothes the wrinkles but also softens the creases formed on the skin. A pain-free procedure approved by FDA offers you instant recovery and helps in restoring the beauty of your skin. The treatment works by relaxing the muscles that contract and develop wrinkles. The wrinkles will get smoother in a couple of days after availing the Botox. Botox injections are only a temporary solution that only lasts for a limited time period (generally 6 months to 1 year). The patient will feel minimum discomfort during the treatment because of the needle used in the process that is injected into the skin. Although, the treatment will show immediate results but full visible results will be noticed only after a week or two.

FILLERS
Fillers offer a temporary solution and a firm, wrinkle free skin & also diminish scars and spots. The top layer of skin has proteins that have elastin and collagen in it. These two proteins are responsible for offering you a smooth and soft skin. With age this protein tends to lose its elasticity and leaves out fine lines and scars on the face. Berkowits in Delhi, offers fillers that can smooth and erase the lines formed on skin. The result lasts for four months to eight months and additional sessions are required during the year to witness beneficial results. The fillers Restylane and Juvederm are clinically proven and offer drastic results. Stay away from the wrinkles and fine lines & experience a youthful skin.

The product is adaptable and offers visible improvements on the skin. IAL system improves softness and prevents the formation of wrinkles for prolonged period. It acts as an antioxidant that helps in maintaining the younger look.

3.Botox & Fillers
Botox and Fillers, which can both be effective treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. What’s the difference between Botox and fillers? Botox and its newer competitor, Dysport, are made from the botulinum neurotoxin, which blocks the action of nerves on muscles. Both Botox and Dysport are used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles caused by muscle activity.
Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles you see when you animate your facial muscles, such as the “11” between your eyebrows when you frown or the lines across your forehead when you look up or raise your eyebrows. The smile lines in the corner of your eyes, also known as crow’s feet, are another good example of dynamic wrinkles.

Botox treatment
The procedure involved to do a Botox treatment is quite simple. A very tiny needle is used to inject the Botox into the wrinkle-producing muscles. No anesthesia is required and the injections usually take only 10 to 15 minutes. There is no recovery time or down time though you may see some temporary redness or bruising at the injection site. On average, it takes three to five days to start to see an effect and up to 3 weeks to see the maximum results from Botox. Results usually last about three months.

Fillers
Fillers are complementary procedures - they are not the same thing as Botox and should not be thought of the same. While Botox is used to treat dynamic wrinkles, fillers are used for static wrinkles and to enhance volume.
Static wrinkles or lines are those that can be seen even at rest, such as the nasolabial fold that runs from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth on each side or marionette lines.
Fillers are used to 'fill' these static lines and folds. It is important to note that these static wrinkles have multiple causes: loss of volume of the face as we age or sagging due to gravity. Some static wrinkles are accentuated by muscle activity, such as when nasolabial folds deepen when smiling. Fillers can also be used to plump or augment the lips and treat lipstick bleed lines.

Commonly used fillers include:
Collagen: A natural substance known as a protein and is the main component in cartilage, teeth and bones. Brand names include Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast.
Hyaluronic acid: Also a natural substance found in your body; high concentrations are found in soft connective tissue and in the fluid surrounding your eyes as well as in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. Brand names include Captique, Perlane, Restylane and Juvederm. 
Calcium hydroxyl apatite: found naturally in human bones. Brand names include Radiesse.
Polylactic acid: A synthetic material that when injected, stimulates the body’s own production of collagen. Brand names include Sculptra
Filler treatment
Filler injections usually require local or topical anesthesia and can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes or more depending on the area being filled. You should stop any NSAID pain relievers, including aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen and Aleve, for at least one week before the procedure to minimize bruising and swelling and avoid scheduling any important social events for at least several days after the injections.
Fillers are temporary, lasting anywhere from six months to more than a year, and need to be repeated to maintain your results. It is not uncommon to see patients who have a combination of static and dynamic lines, so often Botox and filler treatments are used together in facial rejuvenation. Your plastic surgeon should be able to examine you for both dynamic and static wrinkles and give you an opinion on.

Cosmetic laser skin resurfacing is a method for diminishing the appearance of imperfections on the skin’s surface. During the laser skin resurfacing procedure a laser is used to dissolve the molecular bonds of the damaged skin cells layer by layer until a smoother, more uniform skin appearance is achieved. The procedure may also be referred to as laser skin rejuvenation because of its anti-aging benefits, or laser peel because the damaged layers of skin are peeled away.
Laser skin resurfacing removes skin layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or with other cosmetic surgeries on the face.
