How Flash Lift Works

WAVE is able to achieve these amazing facial rejuvenation results in the Flash Lift by using technologically advanced threads made of polydioxanone (also known as PDO). These threads are expertly placed in the skin which provides a natural-looking, tightening and lifting effect on the face.

The PDO threads we use are some of the best and most powerful threads available. Because each patient is a little bit different, we are able to select the right combination of threads to give patients the most ideal and customized results. As time passes, the PDO threads will dissolve and stimulate collagen production.

Ideal candidates for Flash Lift

While the Flash Lift delivers impressive results, it isn’t the right solution for everyone. Ideal candidates for Flash Lift are generally younger and don’t have serious signs of aging like deep lines or folds. Patients with greater signs of aging are usually better suited with a more traditional facelift.

However, patients that have only lighter signs of aging and are looking for an effective solution to look younger, Flash Lift is a wise choice. We understand how busy life can be and the Flash Lift is a fast procedure (about 30 minutes) that has virtually no downtime. This means you’ll look great without all the recovery time typically found with surgery.
