What are Thread Lift treatments?

Thread Lifts are a non-surgical facelift treatment that uses tiny sutures to mechanically lift skin, contract fat tissue, and stimulate renewal. The result is a natural-looking tightening effect that improves the appearance of saggy and wrinkled skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the type and number of threads inserted, you will observe a lifting effect almost immediately after treatment. Results will be obvious after 2-3 months and will continue to improve as the threads dissolve over 12 months.

Results are known to last 2-3 years but may vary from patient to patient due to the ageing process.

The treatment should take no longer than 20-30 minutes in total. Depending on the lifting effect you would like to achieve, multiple threads will be strategically placed into your skin using sterile acupuncture needles. The threads will act as a frame for new collagen and will lift sagging tissue. There will only be injections and no incisions for this procedure.
Local anesthetic will be administered before the procedure so you will feel little to no discomfort.
Thread Lift treatments are considered a walk-in walk-out, lunchtime facelift. There may be slight bruising and swelling that should resolve within a few days. Our medical team can provide more advice during your free consultation.
Depending on the nature of the sagging skin, threads may be more suitable for certain types of changes. Threads can also help to achieve a more dramatic effect as it mechanically lifts the skin. Both treatments have great longevity and results, and our medical team can advise which is most appropriate for you during your free consultation.
