Are you looking for a non-surgical solution to sagging facial skin?

A thread lift is your perfect solution! A thread lift is a revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics, but threads themselves have been used safely for decades for various applications, like treating gynecological disorders or suturing incisions after medical procedures. When used as an aesthetic treatment, there are a few things you should know.

First, it mechanically results in instant skin lifting. Second, it contracts fat tissue to result in instant skin tightening. Third, it promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and more elastic skin.

Thread Lift

A Thread Lift is a procedure that uses dissolvable sutures to rejuvenate and lift sagging skin. The threads help to redistribute fat pads under the skin for an instant skin tightening effect. Over time, the threads promote collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin on a cellular level. All of these processes work synergistically to provide overall improvement of skin quality and texture while decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.

This type of lift will restore that “beautiful V-shape” to your face and have the same benefits as the smooth threads, giving you an immediate benefit that increases over a 6 month period. The threads are fully absorbed in about 4-6 months for results that last up to 12-24 months. Threads are often used with dermal fillers to create a scaffold under the skin which will provide multiple short and long-term benefits of total facial aesthetics.

Smooth Threads

Smooth threads are placed under your skin in a hashtag pattern which brings back the lost blood flow to the area which will repair and tighten the skin. Smooth threads can be used to smooth wrinkled, crepey skin by replacing and adding collagen and elastin to damaged areas. These threads will build a solid foundation of new collagen production providing natural results.

Smooth threads are absorbable surgical polydioxanone (PDO) threads that can be used virtually anywhere on the face or body. Thinner than hair and made of protein, the threads are inserted below the skin to elicit a mild injury that the body responds to by adding structural proteins (fibrin, elastin, collagen), resulting in a smoother, plumper appearance.

Treatment Areas

The threads cause the fat tissue to contract, and this, in turn, results in skin tightening and a facial slimming impact. The procedure stimulates collagen growth and regulates the blood vessels to enhance skin microcirculation. The body absorbs the threads within six months, and the effects last for almost a year due to the cellular rejuvenation effect.

The areas that can be treated using thread lift include:

  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Buttock
  • Forehead or brow
  • Nasolabial folds, or the line that runs from the nose to the mouth
  • Eyebrows, under eyes, and crow’s feet
  • Upper and lower cheeks
  • Neck, jawline
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Marionette lines, or the lines at the corners of the mouth that run down the chin
