A thread lift is the new, innovative response to fine lines, drooping corners of the mouth, incipient jowls, and much more. This gentle lifting procedure can make you look as much as ten years younger – all without a scalpel.
A thread lift is perfect for eliminating unsightly fine lines in the face, neck, and chest area or in case of drooping corners of the mouth, jowls, or an indistinct chin/cheek area.
Local anesthesia is administered at three to five points on each side of the face. Ultrafine threads are placed under the skin (silhouette lift threads or happy lift threads for those with more pronounced findings) to gently lift and tighten the skin of the face. Firm new connective tissue forms in the locations where the threads break down after 18 months. The face is given a natural, gentle lift.
A thread lift is quick and safe and results in a gentle lifting effect after as little as 30 to 50 minutes, making you look as much as ten years younger. Beyond that, downtime is up to two days. Small bruises may occur, but are easy to cover with makeup.
