Thread Lifting

 

 

Thread Lifting is a clinic based procedure that provides results of a face lift without the risks and downtime at a fraction of the cost. The technology is based on absorbable threads placed under tissues of the face and neck to provide lifting and tightening of the skin.  

How Do Threads Work
How Does Thread Lifting Work?

The threads are made of an absorbable material that takes about 4-6 months to dissolve. Studies have shown that these threads stimulate collagen production in the process of absorption.  The end result is some continued benefit after the threads completely dissolve.

Safety of Thread Lifting
Is Thread Lifting Safe?

Many are now delivered through blunt cannulas which minimize trauma and bruising. Because the threads are absorbable, the risk of infection and extrusion are minimal. Having an experienced and knowledgeable provider is the most important factor in decreasing your risks & increasing your chances of a great result.
