Thread Lifts

A thread lift is a simple and quick procedure to give a lift to sagging skin on the face or neck without surgery. This technique uses ‘Threads' or sutures to suspend the skin and provide a subtle lift and definition to the face. It is especially useful for people with bulky faces who need contouring and lifting of the face.

Who is the ideal candidate for thread lifts?

If you have mild to moderate sagging of skin over the face, or want some definition of the jawline, and are not willing to go under the knife, you should opt for thread lifts after consultation from the dermatologist. Threads can also help to improve the appearance of double chin and jowls.

Frequently Asked Questions

We like to assist our clients with a knowledgeable and in-depth collective approach to answer for all your queries and fears with our FAQ mega-base.

How does thread lift work?

The thread lift uses Polydioxanone (PDO) threads, much like the sutures used by surgeons in surgery. These threads tend to last up to 180 days inside the skin. When inserted into the skin, they not only give mechanical support to the skin but also helps to stimulate new collagen formation and remodelling along their length and help the skin tighten in that direction. The formation of this collagen increases blood circulation and makes the skin look younger and supple.

How is the procedure done?

During the consultation, the dermatologist determines the number of threads to be used during the surgery. Before treatment, the doctor marks out the problematic areas, and determine the vectors or directions in which the threads should be inserted. A numbing cream is applied over the treatment area. Then, the threads are inserted into the skin. Post-treatment a cooling mask is applied.

When can the results be seen?

The results are seen immediately, however, as the threads stimulate collagen, there is further improvement and tightening in the skin which maximises over a period of two months post-treatment.

How long do the results last?

Thread lift results last up to a year after treatment, and much longer in some patients. Regular diet and exercise, along with a healthy lifestyle help with the longevity of this treatment.

Can these treatments be combined with anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers?

The ageing of the face happens over different layers of the face. The threads help to reposition the soft tissues, and the fillers replace the lost volume. Antiwrinkle injections help to relax the lines. So, all these treatments are synergistic and help to complement each other.
