1. What is a thread lift?

Before the advent of thread lift, facelift surgeries were the only procedures that were done for people suffering from saggy facial skin causing drooping cheeks and jowls. The excess skin was removed and the remaining skin was pulled and stitched back together to make it more taut and uplifted.

The thread lift procedure uses temporary sutures to lift the saggy skin and keep it pulled up which produces a very subtle but noticeable ‘lift’ in the face. This procedure does not involve removing any of the extra skin.

One more added advantage of thread lift is that it induces the natural healing response of the body which leads to more collagen deposits at the site of the sutures.

2. How does a thread lift work?

A thread lift is a non-surgical procedure done for saggy skin, that is done under local anesthesia. Absorbable PDO (polydioxanone) sutures are used for the upliftment of the face.

These sutures are inserted into the skin of the patient and are then pulled upwards and tightened. This causes the subsequent upward pulling of the loose skin. This process also triggers the natural healing response of our body and makes the thread lift procedure an ongoing process that maintains the contours of the face and keeps the skin from becoming loose and saggy again for a long period of time.

Reduced wrinkles and fine lines and tighter-looking skin.

A thread lift is a very effective procedure that allows you to get rid of all the wrinkles and the fine lines that come with the aging of the skin. It also helps to get rid of the loose and saggy skin by making it more taut and smooth.

Instant lift

The procedure produces an instant lift in the skin and you can see the difference between your previous skin and after the surgery as soon as you come out of the procedure room. As it is minimally invasive, you do not have any scar marks on your face that need to heal.

Long term effects

A thread lift produces long-term effects when it comes to skin tightening and making your skin look younger because it also activates the natural healing process of the body and signals the body to keep depositing collagen in the treated areas which makes all the effects last for a very long time.

Short duration of the procedure

The thread lift procedure is very safe and effective and can be performed in about 30 to 45 minutes and does not require a lot of time.

No downtime

Its minimally invasive procedure reduces downtime which means you can resume all your daily activities very soon.

Suitable for people who can not undergo other surgeries

The thread lift is a very good option for people who cannot undergo other face lifting surgeries because of their health issues as it is done under local anesthesia as compared to general anesthesia that is used for other surgeries.
