Lift Your Facial Skin And Stimulate Collagen Production

A threadlift is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure designed to lift and tighten sagging skin, primarily targeting areas such as the cheeks, jowls, and neck. During the procedure, dissolvable sutures are strategically placed beneath the skin to support and lift the underlying tissue, promoting a more youthful appearance. Over time, these sutures stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and firmness. The threadlift offers a minimally invasive alternative to traditional facelift surgery, with reduced downtime and natural-looking results.

Threadlift Treats:

  • Sagging cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Loose skin along the jawline
  • Mild to moderate facial wrinkles and folds
  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Marionette lines (lines running from the corners of the mouth to the chin)
  • Neck laxity

How Does A Threadlift Work?

Threadlift works by utilizing dissolvable sutures made from materials like polydioxanone (PDO). These sutures are strategically inserted beneath the skin using a thin needle, creating a supportive matrix for the underlying tissues. Once in place, the sutures act as a scaffold, lifting and repositioning the skin to a more youthful position.

Additionally, the PDO sutures stimulate the body’s natural healing response, triggering the production of collagen and elastin fibers. Over time, this increase in collagen production helps improve skin elasticity and firmness, further enhancing the lifting effect. As the sutures dissolve, the newly formed collagen provides long-lasting support for several months to a year.

  • Stimulates collagen production for improved skin elasticity
  • Can be performed under local anesthesia
  • Less risk of complications compared to surgery
  • Adjustable and customizable to individual needs
  • Gradual and long-lasting effects
  • Suitable for various areas of the face and neck
  • Generally well-tolerated with minimal side effects

Threadlift FAQs

Who is a suitable candidate for a threadlift?

Ideal candidates for a threadlift are individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity, typically between the ages of 30 and 60, who desire facial rejuvenation without surgery. It is essential to have realistic expectations and be in good health with no contraindications to the procedure.

How long does a threadlift procedure take?

The duration of a threadlift depends on the extent of treatment and the areas being addressed. On average, a threadlift takes around 30 minutes to an hour to complete. However, more extensive treatments may require additional time.

How soon can I see the results of a threadlift?

While some initial improvement may be visible immediately after the procedure, the full results of a threadlift become more apparent as any swelling subsides and the skin adjusts to its new position. Most patients notice progressive improvements in skin firmness and texture over the following weeks and months, with optimal results becoming evident within a few months.

How long do the results of a threadlift last?

The longevity of threadlift results varies depending on individual factors like skin quality, aging process, and lifestyle habits. In general, the effects of a threadlift can last several months to a year or more. While the sutures used in the procedure eventually dissolve, the stimulation of collagen production can contribute to longer-lasting improvements in skin firmness.

Is the threadlift painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the threadlift procedure. Local anesthesia is usually administered to numb the treatment area, ensuring a comfortable experience. Some individuals may feel slight pressure or a sensation of tugging as the sutures are inserted beneath the skin, but any discomfort is typically mild and temporary.

What is the recovery process like after a threadlift?

A threadlift involves minimal downtime compared to a facelift. After the procedure, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort, which subsides within a few days to a week. Most individuals can resume their normal activities within a day or two, although strenuous exercise and excessive facial movements should be avoided for a few weeks.
