Thread lifts have been around since the 1990s, but innovations in the material used for thread lifts have led to an increase in popularity in recent years. The typical candidate for a thread lift is in their late 30s to early 50s. A person who is generally in good health and is just starting to notice the signs of aging may benefit the most from the subtle impact of a thread lift. Those who can’t have a surgical facelift because of medical conditions that make general anesthesia risky may consider a thread lift as a safer alternative.
Many people choose a thread lift for facial areas that “sag” or look less tight over time. These areas include:
- jowls and jawline
- brow line
- under-eye area
Thread lifting is performed by guiding specially designed threads underneath the surface of your skin, targeting areas which need the most rejuvenation. These threads contain a series of tiny barbs which lift your facial skin to a more youthful position, tightening areas with crepey, loose skin. While reinforcing the underlying structure of your skin, the barbs stimulate your body’s production of valuable collagen and elastin to stimulate further rejuvenation. This is all done at the comfort of Lumina Aesthetics facility with local anesthesia, so you can be nice and relaxed during your treatment.
In general, our thread lift procedures taking about 60 – 90 minutes. The patient will be given a local anesthetic and will likely not feel any discomfort or pain. Patient comfort is a paramount concern for us, so we do everything possible to ensure that patients are well taken care of.
Our Doctor will then determine the best sites to insert the “thread” in order to achieve the desired final result. Next, Our Doctor will begin the process of inserting the threads. The specifics of this will depend on the desired final result and the Thread Lift product employed (such as Double Fix or Aptos).
This process is repeated several times in the targeted area, in order to create the desired shape and lift, again varying due to the Thread Lift product employed. In general, the entire process takes less than 30 minutes, allowing patients to resume their normal activities in short order.
ARE THREADS LIFT SAFE TO USE IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER AESTHETIC TREATMENTS?
Absolutely! Other non invasive therapies such as fillers, collagen, prp, lasers and neurotoxins are great adjunct therapies that work well with PDO threads. It is important to know what Our Doctor to do first and how long to wait in between treatments, to allow each product to work to its full potential and for the optimal aesthetic outcome.

Thread Lifting VS Facelift
It’s important to have realistic expectations whenever you choose to have any cosmetic procedure, and thread lifting is no different. Unlike traditional facelift procedures, Thread lifting doesn’t require deep manipulation of the facial tissues or skin nor does it come with a lengthy recovery period. Additionally, thread lifting is an ideal treatment for those who are interested in delaying the need for a facelift. A thread lifting, however, cannot provide the dramatic results of a surgical facelift. When performed correctly, a surgical facelift is a procedure that can yield longer term results. Unfortunately, the aging process will continue.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER A THREAD LIFT AT LUMINA AESTHETICS CLINIC BALI
Recovery after a successful thread lift is quite minimal. While there may be some visible swelling and bruising, you can go back to work right away if you’d like, as we mentioned as above.
Results should be apparent right after the threads are put into place, but you may notice more in the days and weeks right after they are inserted, as swelling and bruising starts to subside.
Results from a thread lift aren’t meant to be permanent. Successful effects typically last from 1 to 3 years. Like other dissolvable dermal fillers, such as Botox, the threads used in the procedure will eventually be absorbed by the tissue underneath your skin.
After a thread lift, you can resume your normal routine. After thread lift procedure, we advise you not to rub your face vigorously and to avoid sleeping on your side in the initial weeks following the procedure.
Our doctor will advises that you skip your daily moisturizer for the first few weeks after a thread lift, and sleep with your head propped up to avoid rolling over onto the newly placed sutures, and avoid saunas and high intensity workouts for the first week or so after the thread lift is performed.
NEW TREND IN THREAD LIFT WORLD - FOX EYE THREAD LIFT
The newest trend on the block within the aesthetics world - a look described as the ‘fox eye’, 'cat eye' or ‘designer eye’ - involves a cosmetic treatment which simultaneously lifts and elongates the upper eyelid, pulling the eye into a more almond shape, creating overall emphasis on the eyes.
As we age and our skin elasticity decreases, the effects of gravity will, inevitably, result in sagging brows - especially the lateral portion - resulting in a flat, droopy and what some people may convey as an ‘unattractive’ brow.
The fox eye trend has been seen on the likes of beautiful supermodels such as Bella Hadid and Kendal Jenner, so it is really no surprise that it’s become a most sought after look for many women (and some men) across the globe.
How can you enhance your Fox Eye results?
There are times when Lumina’s Doctor may suggest augmenting your fox eye thread-lift with a touch of Dermal Filler and or Wrinkle Relaxer(you know what toxin are 😉). This can improve the longevity of results, although this will be determined based on individual needs and is not a ‘one-size fits all’ approach.
