Forget Brows: Women Are Now ‘Thread’-Lifting Their Faces

BY LISA WILLIAMS The Newest Extreme Dermatology Promises Dramatic Results With Less Downtime If eyebrow threading makes you uneasy, honey, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Queen of off-kilter beauty extremes (remember vagina steaming?) Gwyneth Paltrow has another treatment for you to think about: The Threading Face-Lift. A recent GOOP article on her popular blog explored the ins and outs of the “under-the-radar” method for anti-aging which was approved by the FDA ten years ago. So what exactly is the draw of giving your face the ‘thread-lifting’ treatment? That would be the fact that’s it’s scalpel-free, has a lower downtime and is relatively low-cost compared with other, more invasive treatments, but comes with a bigger payoff of greater lifting capacity compared to run-of-the-mill lasers and creams. Blame silent screen-era director D. W. Griffith for the cult of perfection in Hollywood (and the rest of the world): His pioneering closeups arguably led to generations of actors (supposedly everyone from Marilyn Monroe and Greta Garbo to Burt Lancaster and John Wayne) becoming plastic surgery guinea Continue Reading

Is Skin Lifting Without Surgery Possible?

Try googling for “face lifting without surgery” and you will see links to non-invasive skin tightening treatments (there are so many!), botox, fillers and even tutorials on facial exercises or workouts. Face gyms, they call it, involves anything from rolling a ball over your face, to slapping exercises, facial sculpting with jade. Muscle manipulation is believed by face gym fanatics to improve the appearance of sagging faces, and hopefully this reshapes one’s face to a more youthful visage in time. Whether 30 minutes of facial exercises is able to noticeably lift sagging skin remains to be seen but truthfully, I am skeptical of it, because it reminds me of older ladies I see at the gym who are even stronger than I am, but still have loose, crepey skin all over. Also, there is no certainty of anything. For example, how long will I need to do facial exercises before I can expect a visible facelift effect? At least for non-invasive skin lifting treatments such as the FDA-approved Ultherapy, I Continue Reading
