Are you fed up and frustrated with loose, saggy skin? Do you want a non-surgical way to reduce wrinkles and give your face a natural-looking lift without going under the knife? The Thread Face Lift could be the answer for you.
Thread Lift vs. Face Lift?
A Thread Lift is a non-surgical thread facelift procedure that lifts and smooths the skin on your face, neck or jowls. Using a fine thread to pull the skin tighter whilst also stimulating the natural production of collagen, the PDO Thread Lift gives you a significantly younger, firmer appearance.
Also known as the “one stitch facelift” or “puppet facelift”, this revolutionary non-surgical facelift threading treatment offers you the results of a surgical facelift without the pain, recovery time or risks associated with traditional cosmetic surgery.
The “threads” are inserted under the skin’s surface into the sub-dermis during the thread lift facial procedure. These tiny threads anchor to the skin, keeping it in place as the threads are raised to create a smoother and tighter appearance. Made from PDO (Polydioxanone), they also stimulate a collagen production response.
This non-surgical face lift threading lifts and tightens your skin, giving back its strength and elasticity and providing you with a noticeably younger-looking appearance. Mostly, the Patient is happy with the downtime because it just only needs 3-4 days to heal.

Benefits of a Thread Lift Facial
From the age of around 25, collagen production in the skin slows down and continues to decrease as we age. Collagen is the substance that gives your skin its elasticity, strength and bounce—creating that smoothness and firmness that we associate with a youthful complexion.
This reduction in collagen causes your skin to lose some of its elasticity, resulting in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging of the skin.

If you wanted a facelift effect for many years like around 10 – 15 years, then surgery was the only way to go.
How to get the Thread Lift Journey at Lumina Aesthetics?
If you’re considering a Thread Lift then the first step is to book a consultation with Lumina’s Doctor.
During your consultation, Lumina’s Doctor will ask you about the results you’re looking to achieve from your Thread Lift procedure and answer and questions you might have about the treatment. They’ll help you understand what to expect from the procedure, discussing potential results, benefits and risks, so that you can make a fully informed choice on whether this treatment is right for you.
At Lumina Aesthetics Clinic, the PDO thread lift is one of the most popular services we offer. Patients are excited about the opportunity to shave years off their faces, but they have many questions regarding what to expect.
If you are considering this thread lift, here are 10 things to expect after the procedure :-
1. You Can’t Exercise After a PDO Thread Lift
Unfortunately, you must avoid exercising for seven days after your treatment. You can still walk at a moderate pace. However, you must avoid performing vigorous cardiovascular exercise or resistance training. If you have any questions about what makes up moderate exercise, please connect with our patient care coordinator at anytime, they will assist and answer your questions.
2. You Can’t Take Certain Vitamins and Medications
In the seven days following your anti-aging treatment, you must stop taking any nutritional supplements or medications that can thin your blood. Nutritional supplements you should stop taking include vitamins A, C and E, garlic supplements, Gingko Biloba and fish oil.
If you feel the need to take medicine please show your routine medication to Lumina’s doctor, so they can show you how many doses that you took after the thread lift procedure.
3. You Will Have a Follow-Up Appointment
Seven days after your thread lift procedure, you will come in for a follow-up appointment. This is the perfect opportunity to ask us any further questions you have about your “recovery” process. It also gives us the opportunity to talk about maintenance or touch-up treatments if your results aren’t suit your expectation.
4. You Can’t Consume Alcohol
Unfortunately, you can’t consume alcohol within seven days of your treatment. Alcohol elevates your blood pressure by flushing an excess of water and nutrients from your body. It is crucial that your body has enough water and nutrients to build up new collagen after your treatment.
5. You Must Avoid Saunas
During the 10 days after your anti-aging treatment, it is important to avoid changing your body temperature too much. A sauna may be relaxing, but you’ll have to wait 10 days after your treatment before you can enjoy one.
6. You Must Wait to Have Other Aesthetics Procedure
After your PDO threads, you have to wait for the treatment to take effect before you can receive other anti-aging treatments. If you are interested in platelet-rich plasma therapy, microneedling, or dermal fillers, we strongly recommend scheduling these treatments before your thread lift.
Moreover, you should definitely schedule certain anti-aging treatments before your thread lift. For instance, radiofrequency (RF) treatments, laser treatments, and IPL treatments must be scheduled for 10 weeks after your thread lift.
7. You Are Free to Wash Your Face After Treatment Very Gently
You can wash your treatment site gently with a gentle cleanser starting on the day of your treatment. However, you must avoid rubbing or massaging your face for two weeks after treatment.
8. You May Need to Schedule Your Dental Appointments Before The Thread Lift Procedure
If you are having a dental procedure or routine cleaning performed, reschedule your appointment. It is important to not open your mouth too wide for three to four weeks after treatment. We strongly recommend that our patients do not attend a dental appointment within two weeks of your thread lift. Or you can make it sooner for your dental appointment, do it before your thread lift procedure.
9. You Will Experience Long-Lasting Results, If….
The results of your treatment will continue to improve for one to two months after treatment. Most of our patients find that their results improve for six weeks after treatment. The skin lifting effects are fully visible immediately.
And between six and nine months after your treatment, your threads will dissolve. However, the results of your treatment will last around one to two years past this point. For even more dramatic results or longer-lasting results, some of our patients come in after their threads initially dissolve. If you come in for a touch-up treatment, your results can last up to three years.
Remember, this is non – surgical procedure, the more you maintain the results can be last, the lack of the maintain, you can’t see the results, because ageing never stops, you need to prevent it.
10. You Can Extend the Results of Your Treatment, If….
We strongly encourage our patients to care for the health of their skin. To extend the results of your treatment, drink between 1 – 2 liters of water daily. The collagen and elastin that support the shape and texture of your skin require adequate hydration to remain healthy and strong. Moreover, you should stop smoking and wear sunscreen.
If this seems reasonable to you, and you’d like to discover if you are a good candidate for this treatment, we invite you to schedule your consultation. We’d love to meet you and create a beautiful plan for your aesthetic needs.
