Threadlift

A thread lift is a minimally invasive, in-office, procedure that uses temporary sutures to tighten the skin giving a subtle lifting effect. PDO threads are made of a synthetic, absorbable monofilament protein. The threads, which are thinner than hair, stimulate collagen production and lift facial soft tissues. Thread lifts can be used in the facial area as well as in the neck region. 

This procedure is ideal for people with thinner skin looking for a non-surgical, or more economical option to a traditional face and/or neck lift. 

Thread lift is a great short term solution to the problem of sagging skin as it has minimal downtime in comparison to a surgical face lift. The risk of complications are also decreased as the patient is not put under anesthesia. 

However, it is important to remember that the results of a thread lift are not as drastic and long lasting as a traditional face lift. 

PDO threads can last in the skin anywhere from 18-24 months. Individual technique and results may vary. In some case’s a touch up may be required as early as 6 months after initial treatment.

The recovery period for a thread lift is usually 2 weeks. However, patients are able to conduct everyday activities starting the same day of the procedure. Facial swelling and temporary soreness is expected for the first few days and will decrease gradually.
