A thread lift is a cosmetic procedure aimed at lifting and rejuvenating the skin, typically on the face or neck, using specialised threads. 

Types of Threads Used

  • Long Lifting Threads: These threads have cogs or screw cogs that provide strong lifting effects. They are designed to lift sagging skin and reduce skin folds, helping define the jawline and reduce jowls. The sutures dissolve over time, leaving the skin in a lifted position.
  • Smaller Mono Threads: These thinner threads are used to rejuvenate the skin, creating firmness and tightening. They are different from the lifting threads and stimulate collagen production gradually, improving fine lines and wrinkles while maintaining a natural look.

Treatment Process

Long Lifting Threads
  • The threads are inserted under the skin and are tightened, lifting sagging skin upwards.
  • Immediate facial tightening is visible, and over time, the lift improves as the body senses the threads, prompting increased collagen production at the suture sites. This further enhances skin firmness and the lifting effect.
Smaller Mono Threads (PDO Rejuvenation Threads)
  • Multiple fine threads (usually in crosshatch positions) are inserted into the skin, typically in the face, jaw, and neck.
  • These threads provide structural support to the face, stimulating natural collagen production.
  • The gradual collagen production tightens the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
  • The threads slowly dissolve over time, but the results continue to improve for several months.

Expected Results

  • Improved skin firmness
  • Induces collagen production
  • Improves skin textures
  • Improves skin laxity
  • Reduces wrinkles
  • Produces long-lasting results

Procedure Overview

  • Procedure Time: 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Downtime Required: The extent of downtime may vary, but some recovery time is usually needed, and there may be temporary swelling, bruising, or discomfort.
  • Results Duration: The duration of the results can vary depending on the type of threads used and the number of threads placed. You’ll see an immediate contouring effect and improvement to skin laxity following a thread treatment. Results will continue to improve over the next 8-12 weeks as the body produces more collagen and elastin. You’ll be able to see the final results around two months after treatment, with the effects lasting for up to 12 months.
  • Cost of Treatment:
    • Long lifting threads: from $700 – $4,000.
    • Screw lifting cog threads: from $750 – $1,500
    • Mono rejuvenation threads: from $250 – $1,500.
