The Thread Lift
The thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure widely used in skin rejuvenation to tighten and firm the face and body to reduce the signs of aging for a more youthful overall appearance*. It’s a popular choice to correct sagging skin of the face and neck including the jaw line and jowls. The mini-lift provides a more defined silhouette similar to that of the standard facelift though with a more subtle, natural-looking result and less the downtime*.
How does it work?
A series of fine biocompatible and bioabsorbable medical-grade Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are carefully positioned just beneath the skin to lift sagging skin and redefine the jawline*. This stimulates your body’s natural collagen production and restores skin structure, density and elasticity*.
Who is it for?
This treatment is ideal for anyone looking for the results of the traditional facelift without the extensive risk or downtime. Since there are no incisions made there’s no risk of scarring and patients can resume regular activities within a few days following the procedure.
How long does it last?
You will see an immediate lift that will improve in the six months following your treatment as your own collagen is activated for a more pronounced lift. The threads naturally breakdown in about 15 to 18 months time though some patients report improvement for up to three years following the procedure.
