What is Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a minimally invasive alternative to a facelift. Performed as an outpatient procedure at our Studio City, CA office, our board-certified dermatologists, Dr. Greg Van Dyke and Dr. Jasmine Yun, offer Silhouette InstaLift® and PDO threads as a way to lift and contour loose skin on the face for a smooth and younger-looking face. These absorbable sutures help stimulate the body's natural production of collagen for a firm and healthy complexion over time. For more information about how you can refresh your look, call Van Dyke Yun Dermatology today.
"Even though this clinic didn’t accept my dad’s health insurance, we were willing to bring our dad to be taken care of Dr. Yun because of good reviews about her. My experience when visiting the clinic: The parking is very limited. It has been a couple times I visit this clinic and thankfully, I always find the parking spot. The receptionists are very helpful & friendly.First Impression on the first meeting with Dr. Yun: She is very pleasant to talk with & polite. Even though she’s wearing a face mask, I can tell that she always smiles when she talks and listens. After examining my dad’s skin, we agreed to do biopsy on the dark spot around forehead and his arm, plus cold/Cryotherapy. She surprised knowing that we would pay cash on the treatment. She seriously told us that she would not charge my father on doctor visit. I’ve never expected that she would be so generous to waive 100% fee on doctor visit. We paid cash to other doctors before, but none of them would care on how much we must spend out of the pocket. Dr Yun is totally different. It’s not all about the money (even though money is important), but she is really care about her patients (we can tell from her patients’ reviews). She is a nice doctor inside and out. I’ve never seen such a good doctor like that in my life. Even though she’s knowledgeable, but she’s not arrogant at all. She is patient & considerate. When we were about to leave, she gave us an Aquaphor sample (healing ointment just in case my dad need it). She also informed that she would call me once she received on the biopsy result. Dr. Yun kept her promise. She called me as soon as she received the biopsy result. I was surprised when receiving her phone call because I thought she would ask her assistant or receptionist to call me. I didn’t expect that she would call me on the biopsy result and arranged the schedule for the 2nd visit. She impressed me again with her loyalty as a doctor! On the 2nd visit, my dad went through biopsy again on his arm & his back and cryotherapy. Dr. Yun only charged for a biopsy on my dad’s arm for $250. She didn’t charge my dad on the biopsy on his back, cryotherapy, and doctor visit. Before we left Dr. office, we got a ’goody bag’ from Dr Yun: 4 different samples of sunscreens and an Aquaphor sample. Dr. Yun, we can never thank you enough. Oh, thanks also for spraying the cold stuff on my mom’s neck. Bless your big and generous heart! It’s worth it to find you even though I have to drive for about an hour. I strongly recommend visiting Dr. Yun on dermatology problems. If every doctor strives to be as caring and generous as her, the world would be filled with smiles and laughter instead of pain and sorrow. Sorry for the long review. I am so excited and never have enough talking about all of her kindness!"- F.M. / Yelp / Aug 21, 2022

"Dr. Yun is an outstanding physician. She knows what she is doing; gives excellent professional advice. She is a warm, friendly and caring person. After using two other dermatologists in Orange County where I live, I highly recommend her as far superior, and would not go anywhere else."- M.W. / Google / Jul 14, 2022

What is the Procedure for Getting a Thread Lift?
A thread lift can help alleviate mild to moderate signs of aging on the face, from lines and wrinkles to loose skin. A thread lift is a great way to rejuvenate and refresh your appearance without the cost and downtime associated with surgery. This minor procedure is performed in one of our private procedure 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 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.
