If you want smoother, more lifted facial skin but not the surgery and recovery time of a facelift, a thread lift may give you the desired results. A non-surgical thread lift can tighten the skin, smooth out lines and wrinkles, and sculpt your facial features.

Thread lifts use a medical-grade material called polydioxanone or PDO. These threads, composed of long chains of sugar molecules, have tiny barbs that help them hold onto and lift the skin. The threads come in syringes and are inserted under the skin. The threads then attach to and pull up the skin, making it look tighter and firmer.

Inserting the threads and applying the right lift requires a skilled hand, so a professional with experience in this procedure should only perform thread lifts. While it seems fast and straightforward, a thread lift requires artistry to give you the facial shape you want.

After applying topical anesthetic, your provider will insert a thin needle or cannula under the skin and begin placing the threads. The entire procedure can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. You may feel a slight pulling or tightening sensation under the skin. As soon as the threads are in place, you can resume your daily activities.

You should avoid sleeping on your side or rubbing your face for several days after the procedure to avoid disturbing the threads. You may have swelling for a few days, but this should not keep you from returning to your usual routine. You can even go back to work right after the procedure.

Your face will immediately look firmer and more lifted. You can have a thread lift in areas including:

  • Jawline
  • Forehead
  • Brows
  • Cheeks

The threads used in a thread lift will break down after several months. However, your body responds to the presence of the threads by forming a strong, supportive collagen network around them. This natural support system for the skin remains after the threads dissolve. This lets you keep your lifted, smooth, youthful results for anywhere from one to three years.

Since a thread lift is a non-surgical procedure performed with only a local anesthetic, it does not involve the risks of a surgical facelift. People who are not good candidates for a facelift can often still have a thread lift. If you have areas of minor skin laxity or signs of aging, you may make an ideal candidate for a thread lift.
