What is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift uses fine sutures to elevate sagging skin structures and provide a non-surgical lift to the skin. The procedure takes far less time than its surgical counterpart and comes with little to no recovery. With a thread lift, patients can expect a naturally refreshed and revitalized appearance as well as a boost in self-confidence.

What Concerns Can Be Addressed by a Thread Lift?

  • Skin laxity
  • Wrinkles and creases
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Laugh lines
  • Hollow-looking, sunken cheeks
  • Drooping jowls
  • Loss of elasticity in the brows

How Do Thread Lifts Work?

During treatment, dissolvable threads are injected below the skin’s surface to tighten and lift sagging contours. The threads also stimulate the renewal of collagen and elastin, proteins responsible for skin suppleness, hydration, and resilience. When placed strategically, the threads can accomplish many of the same goals as a surgical facelift.

What are the Different Types of Thread Lifts Offered?

Silhouette InstaLift

This treatment can be instrumental in restoring definition to the cheeks and jawline. Performed under local anesthesia, the InstaLift uses sutures lined with bi-directional cones to trigger collagen and elastin regeneration from within while effecting mechanical lifting on the surface level.

Les Encres

Les Encres thread treatment relies on dissolving threads (Polydioxanone, Polycaprolactone, or Poly-L-lactic acid) to tighten and lift age-depleted regions of the face and neck. The threads — both smooth and barbed — are the same ones used during other medical procedures, such as cardiac surgery. Much like the Silhouette InstaLift, Les Encres threads stimulate a collagen and elastin reboot.

Am I a Good Candidate?

For a thread lift, ideal candidates for a thread lift desire firmer, tighter skin but are not quite ready for an invasive surgical facelift. They seek a viable anti-aging solution that comes with limited downtime and no scarring. As with any cosmetic procedure, patients should be of sound mind and body and have realistic, positive outlooks. Dr. Nassif and his team of skilled medspa practitioners will conduct a thorough consultation and physical evaluation to determine your candidacy and create your unique treatment plan.

What Happens After My Treatment?

After your thread lift, there is very little downtime to contend with. Patients are able to resume their normal activities without restrictions. Minor soreness and swelling may occur for the first few days, however. It is advisable that patients avoid strenuous exercise for the first 7 days in order to give their thread lift time to settle. 

Clients can see improvements in skin laxity and wrinkles right away, although collagen renewal results will appear more gradually with time. Results typically last 6-12 months.
