A “thread lift” is a non-surgical facelift that uses biodegradable, medical-grade thread to lift sagging muscles and skin on your face. A thread lift can be performed on the midface, jawline, neck, around the brows, or around the mouth to eliminate smile lines.
If your skin has started to sag and you want to tighten it back up, you may be a great candidate for a thread lift. The best candidates for this procedure are in their late 30s-early 50s and are in relatively good health. Those who are unable to have a surgical facelift are also the ideal candidates for a thread lift.
During your treatment, you can relax in a reclining chair. Your skin will be prepped with a topical anesthetic and then a thin needle will insert the threads under the skin. This is a relatively painless procedure that only takes 30-45 minutes. Immediately after the threads are inserted, you will feel a light pressure under the skin. There may be mild swelling and bruising for a week after your procedure, but the pain is minimal.
Once the swelling reduces and the threads settle, you will be able to see the gorgeous results of your thread lift: lifted, tighter skin, and a more youthful appearance. These results can last anywhere from 1-3 years, depending on your skin type and how your skin ages.
