Recontour, tighten, and lift facial skin
Our board-certified dermatologists, Dr. Greg Van Dyke and Dr. Jasmine Yun, offer a minimally invasive, in-office alternative to a facelift called a thread lift that uses dissolvable sutures in the face to lift, rejuvenate, and smooth sagging skin.
"I was referred to Dr Yun when her office was near Woodland Hills several years ago. I travel from Ojai to Studio City to maintain my relationship with Dr Yun now as I find her to be the kindest, most talented dermatologist I’ve been lucky enough to find. I’m 63, I’ve had a few! She is patient and kind from skin cancer to micro needling, never upselling, yet keeping me informed always of new products. The staff is very efficient and courteous and runs the office impeccably. I can’t imagine being in anyone else’s hands for my dermatology needs. Do not hesitate to see Dr Yun. Seriously!"- L.M. / Google / Jan 18, 2023
"Went in to see Dr. Yun for the second time and she was absolutely amazing. Her demeanor and tone towards you makes you feel really comfortable and I’m glad I’ve found her here on yelp. Extremely satisfied with the level of service i received at this place and will be sure to return in the future."- A.K. / Yelp / Nov 19, 2022
"I recently received IPL treatment (three sessions) from Dr. Van Dyke and was delighted with the results! My dark spots have visibly lightened and my skin tone is definitely brighter and more even. I will absolutely come back for any future dermatological needs. Dr. Van Dyke is both personable and knowledgeable - and his front office is courteous and efficient. Thank you, Dr. Van Dyke, for an excellent client experience!"- M.F. / Yelp / Oct 30, 2022
"I was having a prolonged reaction to something and needed to see a dermatologist ASAP. I looked through tons of reviews for various places and had a hell of a time getting in anywhere. I finally came across Van Dyke & Yun Dermatology and I’m so glad I did. I was able to get an appointment within the week. I saw Dr. Yun’s PA and she was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The staff there was welcoming and friendly. I was in and out pretty quickly with some advice to help my reaction, which worked. Would definitely recommend."- L.S. / Yelp / Oct 19, 2022
"I’ve seen dermatologists on and off, mainly for acne in Irvine. Now that I moved to LA, I did a lot of research to find a new dermatologist that I could trust and develop a relationship with. I finally landed on this office from seeing great photos and reviews on Yelp.I was a little said to not be able to see Jasmine, but I think my issue was small enough to give their PA Charlotte a chance since I was told she worked with Dr. Yun for several years. And I don’t mind giving other doctors a chance. The staff was great and very kind and professional. And the decor is modern and cute as well.Charlotte was friendly and professional. She immediately figured out what was going on and knew exactly what to do. I think I was in and out in 10 minutes. I was very happy with my visit. And I recently had a follow up visit, and it was also quick and painless as well. I’m confident that my issue will be solved and gone soon. I love that there is a parking lot even if it’s small. My costs was $95 per visit, and I think that’s a very fair price for their expertise and service."- C.L. / Yelp / Oct 10, 2022
How does a thread lift work?
At Van Dyke Yun Dermatology, the thread lift procedure uses Silhouette InstaLift® and PDO (polydioxanone) threads to contour loose skin on the face, including sagging cheeks, deeper nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth), an undefined jawline, and saggy jowls. Over time, the presence of these absorbable sutures stimulate the production of collagen for a firm and healthy complexion.
What can I expect during my thread lift procedure?
Our thread lift procedure is performed in one of our private exam rooms in about an hour while you are awake. Local anesthesia may be used to numb your face for added comfort. We will mark the points of entrance and exit on your face, then we will use a fine needle to insert the thread throughout your skin and tissue. By carefully pulling the thread, we will reposition and tighten your skin. Once your thread lift is completed, you will be sent home to recover. While you might experience some redness, bruising, or swelling for a few days, you will likely be able to see results from your thread lift directly following your procedure.
Your smooth skin and contoured appearance can last you several years with proper care. To maintain your results, Dr. Van Dyke or Dr. Yun may suggest additional threads in the future.
What are the advantages of a thread lift over a face lift?
FDA-cleared Silhouette InstaLift is a great way to rejuvenate and refresh your appearance without the cost and downtime associated with surgery. It is less extreme and very natural looking, with immediate results lasting several years.
