As we age, the effects of gravity combined with loss of fat volume and skin elasticity can lead to unsupported areas of the face that appear to sag. If you’re looking for a non-surgical solution to lift and tighten your skin for a more refreshed appearance, a thread lift might be for you.
A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that both lifts and repositions sagging or loose skin on the face and neck with specialized threads that are carefully placed beneath the skin’s surface.
The threads are positioned to provide immediate lift, but they also encourage the body’s natural collagen production, which helps improve the skin’s texture and firmness over time.
The longevity of thread lift results varies depending on factors such as age, skin quality, and lifestyle but, on average, results can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years. As the biodegradable threads slowly dissolve, the benefits of increased collagen production can continue to contribute to the improvement of your skin’s appearance.
All thread lift appointments require a consultation with our physician to determine if this is the most appropriate option for you. Together, we can help you achieve the natural-looking lift you desire and boost your self-confidence.
A thread lift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck.
It involves inserting dissolvable threads under the skin to create a lifted and rejuvenated appearance. They also stimulate collagen production for long-lasting results.
Thread lifts are most commonly used to treat the lower face, jawline, and neck. They can also be used to lift eyebrows and improve the appearance of marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
At Halcyon Cosmetic & Skin Clinic, thread lift procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort, though some patients may experience mild discomfort or bruising after the procedure.
Most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days, although it’s recommended to avoid strenuous activities for two weeks.
Thread lift results vary from person to person, but typically last 1 to 2 years. Over time, the threads dissolve, but the collagen production stimulated by the threads can continue to provide lasting improvements.
Common side effects include bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort. In rare cases, there can be infection, asymmetry, or thread migration. Our physician is skilled and experienced, which is essential to minimize risks.
Good candidates are typically individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity who want a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation. A consultation with our physician is required to determine if a thread lift is appropriate for you.
At Halcyon Cosmetic & Skin Clinic, the cost of a thread lift varies based on treatment area, and the type and number of threads used.
Immediate improvement can often be seen after the procedure, but the full results of a thread lift may take a few weeks as swelling subsides and collagen production begins to improve the skin’s texture.
