Thread Formula 1

Mild Laxity

Threads are placed to reposition the fat pads of the cheeks leading to a higher cheek and a softer nasolabial fold. For many, placing filler in the nasolabial crease is not the treatment of choice. Threads placed here will lift the cheek making a more natural looking face softening this crease.
The amount of threads used can range from 2-4 per side.

Thread Formula 3

Intense Laxity

Thread Formula 3 includes the same steps from Formula 1 and 2. Threads are placed to reposition the fat pads of the cheeks and the jawline plus we add them to the jowls for full face repositioning. The additional lift to the jowls thins the face by repositioning the heaviness from the bottom of the face in an upward vector. Although you will not get the exact results of a surgical face lift, patients have reported they notice the shape of their face looks much more youthful.
The amount of threads used can range from 8-10 per side.

Thread Formula 4

Skin Texture

We use specialty threads to address the texture of the skin by injecting smooth threads in a mesh like fashion to create support under the skin. As the threads dissolve they build collagen improving the quality of the skin. This approach can be used on the neck and body. We recommend combining this with one of our bio stimulating fillers for elevated results.

A Thread Lift, also known as a thread facelift or non-surgical facelift, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. It involves the use of biodegradable threads that are inserted into the skin to provide a subtle lifting effect. Thread lifts are often chosen as an alternative to traditional surgical facelifts for those seeking a less invasive option with shorter recovery times.

The threads used in thread lifts are typically made from biocompatible materials, such as polydioxanone (PDO) or polycaprolactone (PCL). These materials are absorbable by the body over time and have been used in medical sutures for years. During the procedure, your injector inserts the threads under the skin through small incisions or entry points. The threads are usually equipped with tiny barbs, cones, or anchors that help grip and lift the skin. Once the threads are in place, they are gently pulled to lift and reposition the skin in the desired direction. This lifting action addresses sagging skin, jowls, and other signs of aging. Additionally, the threads stimulate collagen production in the treated areas, leading to gradual improvements in skin texture and firmness. The immediate lifting effect of the thread lift becomes noticeable right after the procedure. Over the following weeks to months, as collagen production is stimulated, the skin continues to improve in appearance, becoming tighter and more youthful.

Here’s what you can expect from a Thread Lift:

Step 1: Your journey begins with a consultation with one of our expert injectors who specialize in thread lift procedures. During this consultation, you will discuss your concerns, goals, medical history, and any previous cosmetic procedures. Our injector will evaluate your facial features and recommend the most suitable approach for your needs.

Step 2: The injector will create a customized treatment plan based on your facial anatomy and desired outcomes. They will determine the type of threads to use, the areas to be treated, and the number of threads required.

Step 3: On the day of the procedure, the injector will clean the treatment area and might apply a local anesthetic or numbing cream to ensure your comfort. The threads are then inserted through tiny incisions or entry points in the skin. Your injector will guide the threads into place, lifting and repositioning the skin as needed.

Step 4: You’ll likely notice an immediate lifting effect as the threads are adjusted. However, keep in mind that the full results will become more apparent over the following weeks and months as collagen production is stimulated and the skin gradually tightens.

Maintenance and Follow-Up: To maintain the effects of the thread lift, you might need additional treatments over time. Your injector will recommend a follow-up schedule based on your individual case. The longevity of results depends on factors like the type of threads used and your body’s response to the treatment. Some threads dissolve over time, while others provide longer-lasting effects due to ongoing collagen stimulation. Results can last anywhere from several months to around two years. A well-performed thread lift should provide natural-looking results, with improvements that enhance your facial features while maintaining your unique appearance.
While thread lifts are safe, there is a potential for side effects, such as infection, visible or palpable threads, asymmetry, and bruising. Thread lifts are less invasive than surgical facelifts, so the downtime is generally shorter. However, some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort at the thread insertion sites can be expected. Most people can return to their regular activities within a few days to a week.
