Indeed, the results they aim to confer are unlike those achieved with traditional fillers—or any other cosmetic treatment in your dermatologist’s or surgeon’s arsenal. "These products represent a missing link to the fountain of youth," explains Sarmela Sunder, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. "We have surgery to address skin laxity; fillers to address volume loss; neuromodulators to address dynamic lines; lasers to address pigment and textural skin issues—but we have no definitive way to address the tone, hydration, and firmness of the skin structure as of yet."

"The best candidates for thread lifts are patients who are just starting to notice some collagen loss and would like to boost the structure of their skin," she says. "It is ideal for patients who are starting to feel as if the skin is starting to lose some of its tautness, not for people who actually have skin that is visibly sagging."

Dermatologists often say that Botox—or any injectable neuromodulator that softens lines, for that matter—is just as much an art as it is a science. "There’s a little bit of a misunderstanding about what ‘preventative Botox’ is," says Sarmela Sunder, MD, a double-board-certified plastic surgeon based in Los Angeles.
