What is a thread lift?

A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.

Collagen helps support “growth factors” that greatly influences the condition of our skin. In addition to being used for wound healing, collagen helps to keep our skin strong, voluminous and supple. As we get older, our bodies gradually produce less and less collagen, which leads to an 80% reduction in skin thickness by about age 70. This loss of volume and strength is a large factor in the creation of excess skin and wrinkles. As the skin grows weaker, it’s no longer able to support the tissues beneath it adequately, meaning that gravity pulls it downwards and stretches it. Infusing the skin of the face with fresh collagen when the signs of skin laxity are still mild can help to both reduce looseness (by thickening and hydrating the skin) and prevent it from getting worse (by strengthening the skin).

Our thread lift treatment is rapidly gaining in popularity amongst our clients. An injectable treatment that produces similar effects to a surgical facelift without the pain or downtime, a thread lift holds a number of benefits:

1. An Instant Lift

With a thread lift, you’ll walk out of our clinics with an instantly lifted and tighter looking complexion. That’s because a thread lift involves the placement of dissolvable threads underneath the skin. These threads contain poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is naturally broken down by the body over time. Once inserted under the skin, the threads are fixed to certain points of the face and then pulled upwards to immediately lift the skin.

2. No Downtime

One of the major downsides to a surgical facelift is the downtime involved. Generally, you’re looking at a recovery period of about a month. This isn’t the case with thread lifts. You can have this treatment in your lunch break and be back at your desk that afternoon making your colleagues wonder what you did to achieve younger-looking skin!

3. Long-term Results

In addition to instantly lifting the skin, the PLLA within the dissolvable threads also works to gradually stimulate new collagen production. This results in a plumper and more youthful complexion that lasts for approximately 12 months, as the PLLA naturally dissolves.

4. Reduced Wrinkles And Fine Lines

By stimulating new collagen production, threads work to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the areas where they’re placed

5. Tighter Looking Skin

Again, because they stimulate new collagen, threads will naturally tighten your skin, helping to reduce any facial sagging.
A thread lift is a safe and effective treatment, taking less than 60 minutes. Many of our clients find it comfortable, with a numbing cream applied to reduce any pain that may be felt from the needle and cannula.
