Transform Your Look with Thread Face Lifting

This non-invasive cosmetic procedure provides an innovative solution to reduce wrinkles, increase skin firmness, and tighten the contours of your facial structure. During treatment small dissolvable threads are strategically placed beneath the surface through tiny incisions or punctures for them to anchor onto underlying structures; this creates increased support that lifts sagging skin and gives it newfound definition.

Thread Face Lifting: Is it the Best Option for You?

  • Preferably you have not had a facelift within the past six months.
  • You are not allergic or have adverse reactions to lidocaine or other anesthetic products.
  • You are free from active skin infections.
  • You can refrain from physical activities for at least one week following the procedure.
  • Those who are not pregnant or lactating.

Explore the Procedure Details

This procedure utilizes small threads made of a biocompatible material such as Polydioxanone (PDO) or polylactic acid (PLA), to provide an instant, non surgical facelift, and firming. The threads are injected into the face to lift sagging skin, tighten wrinkles and create facial definition and contour. Once the threads are inserted, the patient's natural healing process then begins, helping the body produce collagen to fill out and firm the face for a smoother, more youthful look.

Experience a Smooth Recovery

Following treatment, there may be some redness and swelling in the treated area. However, this typically fades within 24-48 hours. During the first couple of days of recovery, it is advised to sleep with your head elevated and refrain from any vigorous activity. You may also apply ice and/or over-the-counter medication, such as ibuprofen, to alleviate discomfort or pain. After the swelling has resolved, the body’s natural healing process begins, and collagen is produced around the sutures, resulting in smoother and more youthful skin.

Within a week of the procedure, you can expect the threads to start settling and contouring the face, leading to an enhanced, rejuvenated appearance.

Results are generally seen within one to two weeks and tend to last up to two years or longer. However, patients may also experience improved skin elasticity, reduced wrinkles, and jowls, as well as a firmer, lifted face in the short term.

What is Thread Face Lifting?

Thread Face Lifting is a minimally invasive facial treatment used to improve facial contours, texture, and firmness. It involves the insertion of temporary threads into the face and neck area which lifts and smooths the skin.

How does it work?

Thread Face Lifting works by introducing threads into the targeted area. The threads are inserted using a small needle and tightened using knots in the tissue, which in turn creates a lifting effect.

Is it safe?

It is generally considered a safe procedure with very minimal risks and side effects. All sterile safety precautions are taken to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient.

What areas of the face can be treated?

Thread Face Lifting can be used to treat a variety of areas in the face, including the cheeks, jawline, jowls, and brows.

How long do the results last?

The effects of thread face lifting typically last between 18 and 24 months, although the longevity may vary depending on several factors.
