Special temporary sutures will be used to pull the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging by provoking the body's "healing response" and causing the body to produce collagen which helps to keep the skin strong, voluminous and supple.

As one gets older, one’s body gradually produces less and less collagen, which leads to an 80% reduction in skin thickness by about the age of 70. A large factor in the creation of excess skin and wrinkles is this loss of volume and strength. As the skin grows weaker, it's no longer able to support the tissues beneath it adequately, meaning that gravity pulls it downwards and stretches it.

When the signs of skin laxity are still mild, infusing the skin of the face with fresh collagen can help to both reduce looseness (by thickening and hydrating the skin) and prevent it from getting worse (by strengthening the skin).This process provides ongoing and progressive rejuvenation for the facial tissues with improvement in the skin tone and firmness.

Recovery from a thread lift, is easy as compared to facelift. Thread lift patients can drive themselves home and look after themselves immediately after completion of the procedure because the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia; Where as facelift is a big surgical procedure with a long down time. Thread lifts generally lift the face by a few millimeters; as such, they create a more subtle and natural looking end result than facelift surgery. Patients who are dealing with mild to moderate, rather than severe, signs of skin laxity are hence best suited for thread lifts.

One may experience a little bit of soreness, redness and swelling after having a thread lift.  Patients may experience irritation, infection or their sutures becoming visible under their skin in rare cases. If this occurs, however, the sutures can simply be removed.

One has to take a few minor precautions while healing:

  • The face should not be rubbed vigorously while cleansing or applying moisturizer for at least a week

The head should be propped up slightly so that one doesn’t roll over onto his/her face while sleeping.

Yes. The ideal thread lift candidate is usually in his or her late thirties to early fifties, whereas most patients over the age of about 55 will benefit more profoundly from facelift surgery. For older patients, who are unable to have surgery for medical reasons, thread lifts can, however, provide a facelift alternative.

It's essential to know that while no lifting technique can produce lifelong irreversible results , facelift surgery will usually produce longer lasting results than a thread lift. The results of facelift surgery can last up to  ten years, whereas the results of a thread lift will generally last from one to three years.
