How Does a Thread Lift Work?

Over time, our faces can lose volume, and skin can start to sag. A thread lift lets you firm and contour your face without surgery or recovery time. If you find yourself bothered by loose skin on your face and neck but aren’t ready to commit to a facelift yet, this procedure may solve your problems.

What is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift uses threads injected under the skin of the face. These medical-grade, bio-absorbable threads adhere to the skin and lift it up and back into a more youthful position. They also redistribute fat and tissue so that areas of your face that have lost volume will look full and rejuvenated. 

How Does a Thread Lift Work?

Your provider will use a special tool to inject the threads underneath your skin. These threads have cones or barbs that help them latch onto the skin and hold it in its lifted, tightened position. The threads dissolve over the next six months. However, during that time, their presence stimulates the body to produce collagen. The new collagen matrix takes over from the threads, continuing to lift, support, and firm the skin.

What are the Benefits of a Thread Lift?

Fast and Easy

A thread lift procedure takes less than an hour, and you can get back to your regular schedule right away, making this an excellent procedure for people looking for a way to correct early signs of aging without long procedures or recoveries. 

No Recovery Time

You can return to your usual activities after a thread lift, although you should avoid rubbing your face or otherwise disturbing the sutures for a few days. You might see some swelling after treatment, but nothing like the weeks of recovery that come after a surgery like a facelift. 

Long-Lasting Results

A thread lift can last anywhere from one to three years. Even though the threads have dissolved after a few months, your new collagen network will remain to keep your skin lifted and keep lines and wrinkles smoothed away. 

Improved Self-Esteem

If loose neck or facial skin has been bothering you, the results of a thread lift could provide a boost to your self-esteem. Most people love the results they see and find that they feel better about their appearance after treatment. 

How Much Does a Thread Lift Cost?

According to Realself, an average thread lift costs $2075. This does not take into account the area where you live, your provider’s experience and skill, the type of thread used, or other variables that will affect your actual estimate. 

Am I a Candidate for a Thread Lift?

Most people are good candidates for a thread lift, which uses medical-grade threads for optimal results and safety. You should let your provider know if you have any health problems or if you have a tendency to form keloids.
