Non - Surgical Facelift
Often referred to in the media as the ‘non-surgical facelift’, the Thread Lift procedure is a minimally-invasive treatment that lifts sagging areas of the face without the need for sedation or an overnight stay. It’s performed under local anaesthetic and takes as little as 30 minutes, with patients able to walk-out and return home a short while after.
How Does it Work?
The Thread Lift (suture lift) is a revolutionary treatment to tackle sagging skin or lines and wrinkles. Without the use of any incisions or surgery, anchoring sutures are placed under the skin using a fine needle to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas. The treatment can take as little as 30 minutes under local anaesthetic and requires no hospital stay afterwards.
The sutures used in the treatment are completely bio-degradable, meaning they will not need to be removed. Their principle component, polylactic acid, encourages the body’s production of collagen, meaning your skin will appear naturally fuller over time, even after the sutures have dissolved.
Frequently Asked Questions
Topical and/or local anesthetic will be used to numb the area. A small needle will be used to create a porthole for the cannula to deliver the threads. This sensation is similar to the feeling of Botox or dermal filler injections. Some possible swelling and bruising may occur but most patients report minimal discomfort both during and after the treatment.
Threads are naturally absorbable sutures inserted into the face, neck, and body. These threads are used to smooth, volumize and tighten problem areas for a more supple, youthful appearance. Our practitioners use a variety of thread lengths and sizes to treat more precisely for best results.
This scalpel-free procedure is a perfect solution for anyone seeking an instant smoothing and contouring lift. Thread lift patients see firmer, rejuvenated skin that gradually improves, thanks to its collagen boosting effects, and can last as long as 18 months. Unlike a traditional facelift, the thread lift doesn’t utilize incisions or any manipulation of the deep tissue, meaning far less downtime for patients. Some patients may see post-operative swelling and/or bruising for 1-2 days.
