Thread Lift

As we age, we start losing facial fat and volume, the supporting tissues of the cheeks and jaw lines weaken, and our lower face and neck start to sag. A Facial Thread Lift gently lifts sagging facial and neck skin to produce a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Facial Thread Lifting is ideal for those who are experiencing mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues. It is a safe, convenient, cost-effective alternative to face lift surgery. It can reduce sagging in the cheeks, neck and jaw line in a faster procedure with lesser risk.

The Threads

The threads used in the Thread Lift are made of soluble PDO (polydioxanone) which is a material that has been used for many years in surgery. Research has shown that PDO relaxes muscles and tendons, and also stimulates the neocollagenesis process, which encourages the production of new collagen in the skin. PDO also stimulates the synthesis of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, both of which are vital for keeping the skin looking plump and youthful.

Thread Lift Procedure

In a Thread Lift, a certified plastic surgeon inserts the soluble, barbed threads into the soft tissue of the face and/or neck through strategic needle entry points made. A hollow needle is inserted into the skin to position the threads in place. The threads attach to the skin tissue or fat and pull back to instantly lift and smooth loose skin, reducing the appearance of sagging skin. Depending on the number of areas being treated, Thread Lifting can be completed within 30 minutes to 2 hours. Because the procedure is performed under local anesthesia and patients remain conscious during the procedure, one can approve the look of thread lift as the surgeon works. The needle access points are invisible and there is no scarring.
