Facial Threads & Thread Lift Cost

Also known as a stitch lift, suture lift, or facial threads the thread lift is a non-surgical way of addressing the features of the face and neck. The procedure uses fine threads, made of a special suture material, to lift certain areas of the face and neck and give them a youthful look, with less recovery time, minimal discomfort as well as avoiding the risks of undergoing full plastic surgery.

This technique originated when cosmetic surgeons began looking for alternative techniques to counteract the visual effects of ageing. They were looking for a procedure that was safer, simpler and used more effective methods than the traditional surgical facelift. The technique they developed employed a very fine thread of suture material that is placed inside the fatty layer in the subcutaneous region below the skin; this procedure is minimally invasive.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Involved with Having a Thread Lift?

    Thread lifts can be performed with or without the use of an intravenous sedative. The procedure is not particularly painful or very invasive, but some people would rather be anaesthetised during the procedure. The first task in preparing for a thread lift is to determine which areas are to be treated and then decide which directions will produce the most natural look. This is accomplished by repositioning the skin and deciding on the best positioning, then marking off the points to reposition with a surgical marker.

    After this process, local anaesthetics can be applied to the area. The anaesthetics used have two primary purposes. First, they will numb the area of operations so there will be no pain and second, they contain adrenaline which can act to stop up blood vessels making the area less susceptible to bruising.

    The threads will then be passed from the hairline or right behind the ear to the areas that are to be lifted. The location of the repositioning will decide where the threads are passed. The threads are passed into the affected area by a long cannula and are then used to pull the skin backwards to produce a proper lifting effect.

    What are the Most Common Side Effects of a Thread Lift Procedure?

    The most common side effect of a thread lift is mild swelling, sometimes bruising. While not a standard reaction from all patients, some patients do bruise or swell significantly. However, when this does occur, it is typically gone in a couple of days.

    There is also a mild amount of discomfort associated with this procedure. The cheeks naturally feel tight, and there can be some expected pain around the ears and upper jawline, especially when chewing and yawning. This “downtime” can be easily remedied with plenty of water, nourishing soft foods and oral analgesics that can keep the pain to bearable levels. There will be some tolerable soreness for up to 3 weeks.

    There are also certain complications that can arise from a cosmetic perspective as well. Occasionally, there may be an asymmetric tilt into the right or left. This is nothing to be concerned about and the cosmetic professional applying the threads can simply bring balance by applying a few more facial threads.

    Certain times, the physician performing the procedure has left the subdermal threads too close to the surface and they may be visible post-procedure. Incorrect placement of threads can also cause the skin to “pucker”, one of the more common anomalies of the thread lift. Potential puckering is something that can be minimised by ensuring the practitioner applying the facial threads is experienced at performing a thread facelift.

    A very rare occurrence is the presence of infection in the skin treated with a thread lift. Infection is very uncommon as most clinics perform this procedure under sterile conditions, as is the case at Skin Club. Hygiene is incredibly important and something we take extremely seriously, not just for patients having a thread lift, but as a general practice.

    Scarring is natural, but because the incisions are so small and the threads so fine there is very little chance that this will cause any visually identifiable problems.

    Will I look dramatically different?

    No, our practitioners work like artists, using the natural contours of your face for guidance. Your normal facial expressions will remain unaffected. During your Consultation, your doctor or nurse will discuss the best plan for you for subtle effects. When performed well a thread lift is exceptionally effective at providing a natural look, one of the reasons it’s such a popular treatment.

    How long will the Threads Last?

    Thread lifts offer a significantly long-term lift to the skin. It doesn’t last forever, though, and tissues will begin to return to their southward positions and gravity will once again start to overcome. A thread lift may need to be repeated within two years or more often depending on how you wish to address your visual appearance, but this is purely optional. However, due to the naturally subtle results provided by a thread lift, this is often a procedure that people tend to repeat. The long-lasting lift and low intensity of this facelift alternative makes it quite an attractive option, so it does not surprise it’s one that is commonly maintained over time by many that choose to have it.

    Who is Suitable for Thread Lift Procedure and Who is Not?

    A thread lift is a perfect option for those who wish to address their visual aspect without undergoing the full facelift procedure. While it’s useful to have some laxity in your skin, too much can be a problem as well. A lot of people make excellent candidates for a thread lift, and the best way to confirm if you are suitable is to book a consultation. During a consultation with us, you will have the current state of your skin and face assessed by our experienced practitioners who have a strong knowledge of facial anatomy. If you were already considering opting for a more drastic option, but haven’t yet looked into this less invasive alternative, it’s well worth your time to find out more and see if a thread lift could be suitable to address your aesthetic concerns.

    A thread lift could be ideal for anyone who:

    wants to delay a facelift procedure until it is a necessity.

    Don’t want to have surgery.

    Lack the elasticity for a facelift, a younger patient problem.

    Are unfit for a full surgical procedure.

    Some certain facial features or structures can make the thread lift especially difficult. These particulars are best explained by your cosmetic professional, but many online resources deal with providing information to those seeking a more youthful appearance.

    Even though there are some relatively unsuitable conditions for this procedure, it is best to have a consultation with a professional Cosmetic Doctor before assuming any condition can’t be addressed. Often viability largely depends on the skill and commitment of the professional performing the procedure.

    There is one condition that will render the individual unsuitable for this procedure, and this is having an unrealistic view of what a thread lift can accomplish. Those who assume they will look as dramatically different as they would with a full facelift, will be sorely disappointed with the rather subtle differences of the thread lift. In a case like this, people seeking cosmetic improvement may be better off opting for the full facelift procedure.

    As with any cosmetic procedure, another important option is to leave cute enough alone.

    What happens at my consultation?

    Our in-depth consultations are the best in the industry. It’s important to us that you acheive the results you want, and we believe this starts with a great consultation. You will never be rushed, and our highly trained practitioners will take the time to discuss aspects of your skin you may be unhappy with, your desired results, costs and timings. Our aim is for you to leave your consultation feeling confident, fully informed, and looking forward to your treatment. Never underestimate the value of the consultation process, it is far from a formality and getting the most out of this part of the process will help you get the most out of a thread lift or any other cosmetic treatment. Discussing your goals thoroughly and finding out what can be achieved helps you and your practitioner develop a plan to tackle your beauty goals in the most effective manner.

    What is a thread lift?

    A thread lift is a noninvasive procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle and visible “lift” in the skin. Unlike the traditional facelift surgery wherein the skin will be removed surgically, our cosmetic surgeon will stitch up portions of the loose skin and pull the skin back slightly. Therefore, lifting and tightening the skin. The facial threads also trigger the area to produce more collagen that is vital in the aging process, a fantastic byproduct of having a thread lift treatment.

    What are the advantages of having a thread lift?

    Although some will experience redness, soreness, and swelling this discomfort is significantly reduced after the first 2-3 days. Patients do not need to be heavily sedated during the procedure, and lower sedation requirements mitigate the risks associated with more intense sedation required for a facelift. The most significant advantage is the recovery time from the procedure. It is comparatively easier than the recovery time of facelift surgery. While it is not as intensive to recover from, for the most part, it is still important to take minor precautions during the healing process. Listen carefully to the advice of your practitioner to ensure that you can take the best care of your face while your facial threads settle, as this helps ensure the lift is maintained well and you heal as rapidly as possible without any issues caused by being a little too rough with your face too early into your thread lift recovery journey.

    Aside from being a low-risk treatment, it is also more affordable than a facelift surgery and will acheive brilliant natural-looking results for patients with realistic expectations. No lifting technique can produce permanent results. Thread lifts generally last from 1 to 3 years, which is often a more than reasonable trade-off for many patients due to the low invasiveness of the procedure and the minimal downtime associated with thread lifts.

    What are the different Thread Lift procedures?

    NovaThreads and Silhouette InstaLift relies on the biocompatible material called PDO for a safe absorption by the body. Nova Threads are barbed or straight or curved smooth sutures. It is ideal for more lifting action and excellent for collagen stimulation. On the other hand, Silhouette Instalift is more focused on lifting the skin. The threads contain several sutures interspersed with tiny “cones” that are allowed at grabbing more tissue. The PDO thread lift provides a useful tool to address some different concerns further and helps us accommodate the desires of even more patients than by only providing a traditional thread lift on its own.

    PLLA and PCL threads are also sometimes used in thread lift procedures, with different lasting periods and other traits, for example, it’s often reported that people who receive PLLA threads can feel a little harder in the skin. However, PLLA thread lifts do take 12-18 months to dissolve. During your consultation, you will be able to discuss your options and decide what may be the best choice to fit your preferences and priorities while being well suited to your needs in attaining a worthwhile lift.

    The facial threads used in a PDO thread lift are made from a substance called polydioxanone. This substance has been used extensively in biomedical applications for many years now, primarily in producing high quality dissolvable surgical sutures.

    What are things to avoid after having a thread lift?

    You must avoid rubbing your face forcefully while cleansing it or when using facial products for at least a week after having threads placed. When resting or sleeping, your head should be propped up slightly so that you do not roll over directly onto your face. Avoiding alcohol for at least a week after a thread facelift is recommended, as is avoiding aspirin for two weeks as these can both thin blood and potentially increase bruising. An aftercare guide will be provided to you after the treatment.

    How Much Do Thread Lifts Cost?

    The amount of facial threads required to be placed to provide adequate lift will vary depending on facial laxity and other factors. These considerations, along with the various types of threads you can choose from when having a thread lift procedure affects the cost. Booking an obligation-Consultation at Skin Club is the best way to find out what thread lift cost you will incur to acheive your desired lift.
