Lift With Thread – The Best Face Lift Alternative

A barbed thread lift is a great alternative to invasive facelifts. As we grow older, we produce less collagen, an important protein that helps keep skin firm and youthful. This often results in deeper lines, sagging skin and a lack of definition.

A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure carried out by a trained professional. It involves using thread-like structures that are inserted into the skin which help to tighten and lift drooping skin. The threads also help to trigger collagen production to give the face a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Benefits of a Face Threading Face Lift

There are many reasons why so many people opt for a facelift with thread rather than a surgical facelift.

Walk In Walk Out Procedure. Compared to other lifting procedures, a barbed thread lift can be performed in around an hour.

No Downtime. There’s no need to rest or take any downtime after a thread lift. The procedure is minimally invasive, meaning you can go back to work and carry on with your day afterwards.

Instant Results. Some other skin-tightening treatments take a while for results to show. A facelift using threads, however, is instant and there’s a noticeable improvement in the skin’s tightness and overall appearance.

Long Lasting Results. Whilst a thread lift isn’t permanent, it can last up to three years because the threads not only lift skin, they also boost collagen production.

How Does a Cosmetic Thread Lift Work?

A thread lift is a great treatment to reduce the appearance of moderate sagging in the neck, cheeks, jawline and brows. Our team will temporarily insert medical-grade threads below the skin. They will then gently be pulled and fixed into position to tighten and smooth the skin.

As well as initially tightening the skin, the dissolving threads also encourage the production of collagen. The threads won’t damage the skin and many patients won’t notice where they were inserted, meaning you can enjoy the benefits of your cosmetic facelift straight away.

Aftercare for a Barbed Thread Lift

Everyone is different, meaning aftercare will also vary from person to person. Because a thread lift is minimally invasive, you can go about normal lift straight after the procedure. However, some may experience a little discomfort or bruising after the treatment and a day’s rest may be needed. You should also avoid showering or washing your hair for 24 hours and it’s advisable to sleep on your back for a week.

When you’re at our clinic, we’ll talk you through the best aftercare for your procedure, to ensure you recover as quickly as possible and with the best results.

Barbed Thread Lift Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does a Barbed Thread Lift Last?
Thread lifts are not permanent and they usually last 1-3 years. Like many other dissolvable procedures, the medical threads are eventually absorbed by the tissue underneath the skin, meaning the effects are less noticeable.
What Is the Difference Between PDO and Barbed Threads?

A PDO Mono thread lift, which stands for polydioxanone, is another type of thread facelift. PDO threads are used to thicken and tighten skin. They’re inserted under the surface of the skin in a mesh-like pattern and gradually stimulate natural collagen production to promote a lifting effect.

Barbed threads, however, offer more lift initially. If you’re unsure about which procedure would work best for your concerns, talk to one of our team. They’ll happily guide you through your options to find the perfect treatment for you.

What Is the Best Age for a Thread Lift?
People in their late thirties to early fifties tend to see the best results when it comes to thread facelifts. A threading cosmetic procedure results in a more natural and subtle look, meaning that it works best against the signs of moderate ageing.
How Do Barbed Threads Work?

Barbed threads work by lifting loose skin to create a more youthful and smooth overall appearance. We will insert barbed threads under the skin and gently fixes them into place, securing the skin so that it looks rejuvenated. They also encourage the production of collagen which makes skin look smoother for longer. The threads gently dissolve over time, meaning the procedure is not permanent.

Do Barbed Threads Hurt?

Barbed thread lifts hurt a lot less than other more invasive surgeries such as facelifts. Even so, some discomfort can be normal for a few days after the treatment which is common in many cosmetic injectable services. Some clients may notice mild discomfort during the procedure but a local anaesthetic is used, meaning that it’s very minimal and temporary.

The level of discomfort experienced depends on the number of threads inserted during the procedure and their placement.

What Is the Difference Between a Smooth vs Barbed Thread Lift?

Smooth thread lifts encourage collagen production, whereas barbed threads also offer more lift initially. They both work to reduce the signs of ageing, including drooping skin, deep lines and wrinkles.
