6 Questions About Thread Lift Treatment

Thread is a great option if you’re noticing that your lower face is looking a bit heavy, losing definition around the jawline, or seeing jowls and marionette lines forming. If your skin is starting to sag and lose its bounce, a Thread Lift might be just what you need.

Our medical practitioners get a lot of questions during skin consultations about Thread Lifts. Here are some of the most common ones we’ve been asked recently:

1. What Does a Thread Lift Do?

The Thread Lift uses PDO threads that physically lift your skin. These threads are made of complex carbohydrates that gradually and safely break down and are absorbed by the body. This means the results are long-lasting but not permanent.

Before the procedure, a powerful local anesthetic is applied to numb the treatment area. Then, a medical practitioner places the threads strategically to lift your skin.

2. What Happens to the Threads in a Thread Lift?

Great question! The threads are made of complex carbohydrates, similar to those used in medical sutures, which the body can gradually and safely break down. When the threads break down, your face won’t suddenly drop. It’s a gradual process, so you won’t wake up looking drastically different one day. Most clients opt for another treatment about 12 to 18 months later.

3. Which Thread Lift Lasts the Longest?

The longevity of the threads varies from person to person, depending on factors like metabolic rate. We use Hiko threads at our clinic, known for their quality and effectiveness.

4. Are Thread Lift Results Immediate?

Yes, you’ll see immediate results after a Thread Lift. Plus, the results can improve over the following months as new collagen is stimulated, leading to smoother and firmer skin.

5. Does a Thread Lift Hurt?

The treatment shouldn’t be painful. We use local anesthetics to ensure our clients are comfortable throughout the procedure. You might feel some pressure and movement in the treated area, but it shouldn’t be painful. Some clients who had the procedure elsewhere found it painful but were pleasantly surprised by their experience with us. Choose a clinic with experienced practitioners who use local anesthetics to ensure a comfortable treatment.

6. Thread Lift or Mini Facelift? This depends on your goals and suitability for each treatment. Here’s a quick comparison:

  • Mini Facelift: A surgical procedure performed by a surgeon who makes cuts, tightens the tissues, and removes excess skin. There might be some scarring, but it’s usually minimal. Ideal for moderate skin aging, typically recommended for those in their late 40s to early 50s. It’s important to consider the risks associated with surgery, such as infection and complications from anesthesia.
  • Thread Lift A less invasive option, ideal for those who don’t want surgery. It produces more natural-looking results and is usually best for men and women in their mid-30s to mid-60s, though there can be exceptions. During the procedure, a practitioner places threads into your tissue using a cannula, lifting your skin and stimulating collagen production. The threads are made of complex carbohydrates, the same material used in heart surgery, which gradually breaks down and is absorbed by the body.
