How Does a Thread Lift Work?

A thread lift firms and tightens loose skin by using temporary threads under the skin to lift the skin and underlying structures. A thread lift can dramatically reduce lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity with a minimally invasive procedure. 

What is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift injects threads under the skin. Also used in surgical procedures, these threads will gradually disappear but will leave behind a network of collagen proteins that maintain your lifted and firmer results

Thread lifts can be used on the forehead, the area around the eyes, and to lift the cheeks and the skin around the jaw. While a thread lift will not achieve the same results as a full facelift, it offers a solution for those with only moderate loose skin who do not feel ready for the surgery and recovery time of a facelift. 

How Does a Thread Lift Work?

An injector tool places threads under the skin through openings just large enough to accommodate the small injector. Once placed under the skin, the threads adhere to the dermal layers of skin to provide lift and support. An experienced provider like those at Slimming Solutions Med Spa can place these threads with great accuracy to achieve results that look natural but lifted and youthful. 

While over time these threads dissolve, a network of collagen fibers will grow to replace them. The presence of the threads triggers collagen production, resulting in a tighter, firmer appearance long after the threads have been absorbed by the body. The threads can last anywhere from several months to a year in the body, but enhanced results due to collagen production can last three years or more

Thread Lift Benefits

Almost No Downtime

You may see some minor swelling or irritation around the thread insertion site, but this only lasts about a day. Otherwise, you can go back to your regular activities without restrictions. When you compare results with recovery time, a thread lift gives you significant results with no real recovery. 

Takes Less Than an Hour

The entire process lasts about 45 minutes, making this a fast and easy procedure. You will only need minor local anesthesia at the site of the injections, and you should feel no discomfort. 

Lifted Skin

If you feel uncomfortable with loose facial skin, a thread lift can provide significant tightening and lift. Skilled placement of the threads will provide noticeable results that still look completely natural. You will see lines and wrinkles lifted away, and results can last for years. 

Lasts for Years

Results can last for three years or more. While using dermal fillers or other methods to get rid of lines and wrinkles can work well, they usually only last a few months. In the long term, a thread lift can save you money over repeated sessions of other treatments. 

Am I a Candidate for a Thread Lift?

Most people are good candidates for this procedure. However, people with more skin laxity may not achieve the results they want from a thread lift and may want to consider other options such as a facelift.
