"Outstanding doctor! She finally found a diagnosis for an issue I've been dealing with since August of 2021. She was the only dermatologist who came to see me in the hospital to perform a biopsy, that the hospital would not do. She is very compassionate and caring! Most importantly takes her time with you, not like other doctors who makes you feel rushed. Highly recommend!"- L.P. / Google / May 11, 2022

How Nonsurgical Facelift Works
The Thread Lift is an outpatient procedure performed at Imperial Dermatology, generally taking about an hour. Prior to starting your treatment, Dr. Bartos will apply a topical anesthetic and mark the treatment areas. The area is marked, numbed with a tiny amount of local anesthetic, and then a needle will be used to place the dissolvable threads into your skin to produce a tighter, suspended appearance and create your desired lift. The threads contain tiny, absorbable cones, which help stimulate collagen production to add youthful-looking volume. After your procedure, you should have very little required downtime. You might experience some mild bruising and swelling, but these effects should dissipate within a few days.
