The two latest advancements in cosmetic surgery arrive in Denver. Nicolette Picerno, MD brings innovative Contour Threads facelift procedure and natural looking Captique wrinkle filler to the market

Looking younger seems to be getting easier and the recent FDA approval and release of two new products, Captique and Contour Threads, are the latest developments in the search for a youthful appearance. Dr. Nicolette Picerno, a Denver-based double board certified facial plastic surgeon, is among the first in the city to offer these minimally invasive, cutting edge procedures. Captique is the newest hyaluronic acid entry into the U.S. dermal filler marketplace. It is indicated for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and can take years off the skin in a matter of minutes. Contour Threads are product used in a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure that elevates the midface and brow. Contour Threads achieve natural looking results without the complications of a full facelift. Both new products are offered locally at Faces First, Dr. Picerno’s Denver and Lone Tree-based practices.

A safe and effective alternative in the fight against aging, Captique is administered in the doctor’s office and takes less than 15 minutes. Results may last up to twelve months and can take years of aging off the face. The non-animal derived acid filler is injected directly into the skin and is intended to add volume to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. It is best suited for patients 30-60 years old.

Contour Threads are the most recent minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure on the market. Contour Threads are a new product approved by the FDA to elevate the midface and brow. The procedure is a safe, conservative and effective one that offers subtle, natural looking results.

Contour Threads are specially designed sutures made of clear polypropylene , a very trusted material that has been safely used in other medical procedures for a number of years. The procedure gently shifts sagging tissues in an upward direction. The procedure allows Dr. Picerno to create a relaxed, fresh appearance while preserving and enhancing the face’s natural contours. Best suited for women and men in their thirties through sixties, the Contour Thread procedure does not replace a conventional facelift; rather it offers patients an innovative, minimally invasive approach to facial rejuvenation.

Both Captique and Contour Threads are creating a buzz nationwide. The latest in the numerous facial rejuvenation options, Captique and Contour Threads address the needs of those wanting to turn back the clock without a major overhaul or serious downtime.
