Facial thread lifting is a minimally invasive cosmetic facelift technique that can restore a younger appearance, in a similar way to a surgical facelift but without the need for surgery. The thread facelift uses specialised absorbable threads which are introduced into the skin using very fine needles to lift tissue and muscle and improve skin texture*.
A lifted appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment, however results will improve in the following days and weeks to come as the process of natural body protein synthesis begins. The overall texture of the skin continues to improve and it becomes tighter, thicker and firmer and fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away. The threads are naturally absorbed by the body within six to eight months, however this method maintains the lift long after the threads have dissolved and you can expect to see results last for up to 18 to 24 months. It is possible to repeat the procedure before the original results disappear to maintain the facelift appearance.
