Thread Facelift

What is a Thread Facelift?

Are wrinkles and skin sag getting in the way of achieving supple and smooth skin? Forget about applying layers of makeup to restore a youthful glow. There is an easier way to achieve a refreshed look while minimizing wrinkles and the first signs of aging. The thread facelift is growing in popularity because it addresses those fine lines and sagging without the invasiveness of surgery. Let’s determine whether the thread facelift is right for your cosmetic needs.

What is the Purpose of Lip Fillers?

You may have heard of skin threads, face threading, or a thread facelift which all refer to the process of lifting the skin without facelift surgery. This procedure is commonly sought by men and women in their late thirties and older who notice sagging skin and fine lines but do not want to undergo invasive treatments. It is certainly one of the best ways to create a refreshed look while enhancing the quality and smoothness of the skin.

What is the Difference Between a Thread Facelift and a Surgical Facelift?

A thread facelift works with dissolvable threads that are strategically inserted into the target points of the skin. The thread will join specific areas of the skin and will be pulled to create a toned and taut appearance. Only the result of the facial threading will be visible and not the thread itself.


Surgical facelifts are performed under anaesthesia and involve cutting and removing skin to remove sagging and wrinkles. It is more invasive than face threading and requires a lengthy recovery period.


Remember, threading methods include a dissolvable thread ideal for creating a fresher, youthful appearance compared to the invasiveness and the longer recovery involved in surgery.

How Will a Thread Lift be Performed?

Before undergoing the procedure, you must consult with your cosmetic professional. Areas of concern such as sagging skin and wrinkles will be examined along with an assessment of your medical history. This will help the practitioner determine your eligibility for the cosmetic enhancement.


Once you are approved for the procedure, your practitioner will apply a topical anaesthetic or injectable local anaesthetic to reduce any discomfort at the enhancement sites. Dissolvable threads will then be administered, which will give an immediately tighter and plumper skin appearance and will provide a framework for your own body’s collagen production. This framework will continue to lift the facial contours over the course of 3- 9 months and the effects can last up to 2-3 years. The threads will slowly be absorbed as the body’s collagen production and natural healing absorb the thread.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Thread Lift?

The procedure takes approximately 1-2 hours to perform, after which patients are sent home to rest and treat the swelling and bruising. It is important to relax once you have had the thread lift performed, as this ensures that the newly threaded areas remain in place and heal correctly. In only a few days, you should notice a reduction in the swelling and bruising around the target sites. Do not exercise, swim, or push yourself to work after you’ve had the procedure performed. This could create more irritation and lengthen the recovery period.

Will Facial Threading Remove My Wrinkles?

Facial threading is ideal for those who have sagging skin due to aging or sudden weight loss. It is also suitable for those who have fine lines and minor wrinkles that you wish to target and remove.


If you are a candidate for the procedure, you can benefit from its skin-smoothing results. It is a wonderful choice for those looking for an uplifted appearance. It is also beneficial for those affected by stretched skin. Once the target zones on the face are lifted and gently pulled, you will notice a significant difference in the look and feel of your skin.
