A Simple Solution for Loose Skin

A thread lift is a cosmetic procedure that helps lift loose skin from the face or neck for a revitalised look. 

A thread lift provides an excellent solution for those with loose skin (skin laxity) around the upper, mid, and lower face and neck, with the benefits including:

  • No surgery
  • No incisions or stitches
  • No scars
  • Very minimal recovery time
  • Immediate and discreet effects

Before deciding on cosmetic surgery, it's important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Talk to your cosmetic doctor about what to expect from the surgery and make sure you understand your recovery time and the likely results.

Why Choose a Thread Lift?

In the past, thread lift procedures used primitive technology to pull the skin and subcutaneous tissues in a chosen direction (or 'vector') to achieve a facelift with incisions and stitches required.

Today with newer techniques and better technology, it is considered a type of non-surgical facelift that works in two ways—creating both strong pulling and volume redistribution effects simultaneously through modern silhouette soft threads.

A thread lift can fix sagging skin and relax subcutaneous face tissues, similar to a mini facelift without any requirement for incisions and no scarring in front of the ears.

How Does it Work

Thread lifts are performed under local anaesthesia, with a mild sedative provided thirty minutes before the procedure to help you relax.

Before the procedure begins, the practitioner marks the area to be treated and then injects a mixture of local anaesthetic and adrenaline into the entry points. The injections ensure the patient won't feel the threads being stitched into the skin and help minimise post-procedure bruising.

Once the area is numb, the practitioner creates an entry point in the skin using a needle and inserts the threads. The threads are slid in opposing directions, pulling the skin to ensure the best possible effect. Light pressure is applied to reshape the surface, creating visibly lifted, smoother skin before the practitioner anchors the thread and finalises the procedure.

Furthermore, the threads stimulate collagen production following insertion, revitalising the treatment areas.

After the Procedure

Extreme facial movements, including avoiding chewing gum, eating tough foods, and engaging in vigorous or high-impact activities should be avoided for about two weeks.

Swelling and bruising are common and will gradually subside. Another common side effect that may result from a thread lift is 'puckering'. This term refers to small dents at the entry points of the threads; this is not a cause for alarm and usually resolves within two weeks without any further intervention.

Types of Thread lift

Face thread lift

Used as an alternative to extensive surgery. Medical-grade tiny threads are inserted and pulled to tighten loose skin and refresh the face.

Eyebrow thread lift

Lifts sagging eyelids and skin to refresh the face as well as correct alignment of the brows (asymmetry). Often used with blepharoplasty surgery for maximum results.

Jawline thread lift

Threads are inserted and stretched along the jaw and tied to the lower cheek before being anchored under the earlobes to achieve a stronger defined jawline.

Neck thread lift

Effective for removing a double chin (turkey neck) where short and long collagen-stimulating threads are used to lift and tighten excessive skin 

Pdo thread lift

Refers to a popular biodegradable polyester suture called Polydioxanone (PDO), used more for skin rejuvenation than lifting drooping skin like other procedures.

Forehead thread lift

Strategically placed threads pull the underlying tissues in the forehead, upper torso and neck to smooth out forehead wrinkles. 

Fox eye thread lift

Used to lift the corners of the upper lids (brow tail) to create a more almond shape or 'fox-eyed' look

Nose thread lift

Effective for reshaping the nose tip, bridge (or both) and nose bumps to create a straighter, more streamlined nose

Aptos thread lift

A proven type of thread used with many lift procedures as it has special multi-directional barbs that allow for greater lifting and reduced sagging of the brow, nose and forehead.

Silhouette Soft Lift

Using innovative suspension sutures and cone technology, subcutaneous tissue, skin and fat in the treatment areas is repositioned, resulting in smoother, nicely contoured and fuller skin. It also boosts new collagen production, making the skin more supple.

Mono Thread lift

Mono threads differ from standard thread lifts that use longer barbs. A Mono thread consists of an absorbable polymer created from polydioxanone, which is more durable and flexible and forms a supportive structure for the face. 

Mint Threadlift

Using superior-grade PDO threads with moulded barbs for increased anchoring, a mint thread lift provides an immediate lifting effect by creating tension in the skin. Additionally, it provides collagen stimulation, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production for firmer skin.
