A thread facelift is convenient, less invasive than traditional facelifts, designed for people experiencing early signs of aging, such as minor facial sagging. This is an innovative facelift procedure that can be performed in just one or two hours, often without anesthesia. During a thread facelift, the Doctor inserts thin threads into the face through tiny entry points made in the targeted area.
These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during
the procedure, they can approve the look of their thread lift while the doctor works. Once the threads are knotted, they become hidden within the skin itself, and any scarring that results will be virtually invisible.
The price of a thread lift depends on how many areas will be treated and the number of threads required for the procedure. There is no cutting, no stitching, and no surgery. Anyone could not even see where the threads or injections were inserted into your skin. You can see results after a month of this treatment and the complete result may become visible within or after 3 months. Threads will gradually dissolve over six months, but because of their collagen-boosting effects, you may continue to see some results for up to a year. The initial lifting effect can fade in as little as six months because the power of the thread is limited.
The whole procedure may take up to 1 hour to 2 hours. Your skin will be marked where the thread will go. Those areas will be injected by local anesthetic. After numbing your skin, long needles with the attached thread will be inserted into your skin and passed under the skin’s surface. The thread is then pulled taut to create tension and lift the tissue. This process is repeated until all the threads anywhere from just a few to more than 20 are placed.
Because this is done under anesthesia you will not feel any pain or discomfort after the treatment.

This process provides ongoing and progressive rejuvenation for the facial tissues. Patients who have a thread lift for stimulating collagen will notice a gradual improvement in their skin’s tone and firmness. While their threads are in place, the body’s healing response will be constantly activated Depending on the number of sittings and frequency of treatment and number of threads inserted and the type of threads inserted which will be decided by the doctor at consultation results may last up to a year.
Combination with tread:
By combining several different non-surgical anti-aging treatments, patients can achieve a profoundly positive change in their appearance For example Threads with HIFU Threads with fillers.
- Bruising, swelling, and soreness: Some patients may experience bruising, swelling, and soreness after the treatment. But this is temporary.
- A thread lift simply lifts and firms up your skin, so results are more subtle than they are with a surgical facelift, which also lifts the underlying muscles and may remove excess skin.
- If you have thin skin, the threads may be visible under the skin’s surface.
- These threads were permanently meant to stay under the skin forever and were later found to trap bacteria and cause infection.
- If you weren’t happy with the results, the removal of permanent threads could be a bigger, more invasive ordeal.
- Sometimes due to the placement of the threads and how tightly they were pulled, including visible dents or bumps, asymmetry, and threads obviously showing from under the skin or even poking out. The threads can also break under too much tension, and then the lifting benefit is lost.
