What is thread lifting?

Thread lifting is an effective non-surgical method of facial rejuvenation.
A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure using temporary sutures to subtly lift and tighten the skin. Instead of surgically removing loose facial skin, the doctor at We Are Beauty Clinic suspends it by stitching portions, resulting in a natural lift.
Threads not only lift the skin but also stimulate collagen production, vital for skin health. Collagen supports growth factors, keeping skin strong and supple. With age, collagen production decreases, leading to skin thinning and wrinkles. Thread lifts infuse fresh collagen, thickening and hydrating the skin, preventing further sagging.
This process offers ongoing rejuvenation, gradually improving skin tone and firmness. While threads activate the body's healing response, patients typically don't feel anything, as the sutures are small and integrated into the skin.
How does thread lifting work?
If you're considering a thread lift but still unsure, here's what happens during the procedure:
  • Your dotcor marks the areas of sagging skin for thread placement.
  • Local anesthetic is applied for comfort.
  • Fine PDO threads are inserted beneath the skin using a cannula, with cone-like structures for lifting.
  • Threads are adjusted and secured, then trimmed for invisibility.
  • The procedure typically takes 30 to 45 minutes with minimal downtime and side effects.
After the procedure, immediate results include tighter, smoother skin. Final results appear in 10 to 14 days.

Thread lifts stimulate collagen production, rejuvenating skin tone and firmness. Results last up to 18 months, with PDO threads dissolving in 6 to 12 months. Collagen production continues for another 6 months.
Due to their safety and dissolvable nature, repeat treatments can be considered if needed.
How long does thread lifting last ?
The results of a thread lift typically last from one to three years as the threads gradually dissolve and are absorbed by the body. Factors affecting the duration include age, skin type, lifestyle, and the body's breakdown rate of sutures used.
Benefits of Thread Lifts:
  • Less invasive;
  • Shorter downtime;
  • Natural-looking.
Thread lifts can be complemented with anti-wrinkle injections, laser treatments, or facial peels at We Are Beauty Clinic to address additional aging signs like wrinkles or pigmentation.
