Our skin loses elasticity and muscle tone as we get older, resulting in a flabby or sagging appearance. VIOLA threads are synthetic absorbable PDO surgical sutures used to enhance the appearance of the treated area temporarily. The non-surgical procedure is designed to lift and tighten loose facial skin while triggering the body’s healing response to trigger collagen formation. This results in a firmer, plumper, more youthful, and natural-looking look.

We offer VIOLA threads for men and women at Dr. Joshua Halpern’s plastic surgery office in Tampa, Florida.

What Are the Benefits of VIOLA Threads?

With a VIOLA lift, you get an instant lift. As soon as you finish getting your procedure, your skin will look more lifted and youthful in appearance. Further, unlike a standard facelift procedure which often takes several weeks of downtime, a VIOLA thread lift offers reduced recovery time. It’s an ideal procedure for anyone with a busy or demanding schedule.

Besides the quick recovery time, patients can enjoy the results for a longer time than radiofrequency treatments and injectables, usually over a year. VIOLA threads are also a cost-effective way to achieve a more rejuvenated appearance.

While VIOLA threads may be an alternative to facelift surgery for qualifying patients, others may benefit more from Dr. Halpern’s traditional facelift or Millennial Facelift℠.

What Happens at My VIOLA Thread Consultation?

During your consultation, your specialist will evaluate your skin condition, particularly the areas you are worried about, and discuss your goals. Your medical history will also be reviewed, and a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific situation is designed.

As part of your consultation, you will be provided with detailed information about how the treatment works, what to expect, and the estimated costs of your VIOLA thread lift.

How Are Viola Threads Performed?

A VIOLA thread procedure involves the placement of PDO dissolving threads deep underneath the surface of the skin to produce a subtle but visible lift in the skin.

How Are Viola Threads Different From a Facelift?

Unlike a traditional facelift, the VIOLA lift procedure is quick and minimally invasive. A facelift is an excellent way to address moderate to severe facial sagging, but it also carries a lot of expense and downtime.

Another notable difference is that VIOLA threads are highly customizable and versatile. It can treat virtually any area of the face, including the cheeks, chin, jawline, upper neck, nasolabial folds, crow’s feet, and under-eye area.

What Is Recovery With VIOLA Threads?

The VIOLA threads procedure requires little recovery time. Patients may expect to experience some mild swelling and possible bruises, but nothing too serious.

Because VIOLA threads help promote collagen formation, your results will continue to improve with time.
