How Does it Help You?

Crafted from collagen-stimulating fibres, threads incorporate integrated barbs to provide immediate facial tissue support and lift. Moreover, they gradually improve texture and elasticity in skin due to the formation of new collagen. This dual-action approach establishes thread lifts as a highly effective nonsurgical facelift. 

   

Stimulating Collagen & Elastin

___________________________

Lifting threads mechanically reposition and support sagging facial tissues, fostering a “mesh” that spurs fibroblast activity. Crafted from biocompatible materials like PDO (polydioxanone), they stimulate collagen and elastin production, progressively enhancing skin texture, elasticity, and firmness, offering multiple benefits.  

Targeting Skin Laxity

___________________________

Over the years, skin laxity becomes more pronounced, imparting an aged appearance that fails to reflect our inner vibrancy. Thanks to the collagen- and elastin-stimulating properties of the materials used to create lifting threads, you not only experience tissue repositioning but also witness an improvement in skin elasticity. 

Rejuvenation & Skin Tightening

___________________________

An inevitable symptom of ageing is the depletion of facial fat and elasticity in skin fibres, especially in the cheeks, eyes, and neck, resulting in loose skin and a heavier lower face, including jowls. Thread lifts offer a non-surgical solution to minimise these effects, providing a boost in skin tightening and tissue lifting.

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads boast a well-established reputation for stimulating collagen production via the activation of skin fibroblast cells. Once placed beneath the skin, these dissolvable threads promote sustained tightness and resilience against sagging, even after dissolution, nurturing firmness in your complexion. 

Close up patient and syringe

A thread lift procedure goes beyond mere skin rejuvenation, effectively erasing wrinkles. It also imparts remarkable skin tightening and lifting effects, resulting in a comprehensive transformation that uplifts your appearance—a lifted, ‘V’-shaped contour reminiscent of a facelift, all without the need for surgical intervention. 

BioAbsorbable threads refer to threads made from materials that are gradually broken down and absorbed by the body over time. These threads stimulate collagen production and tissue regeneration as they dissolve, contributing to a natural and long-lasting rejuvenation effect.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of threads available?

Threads can be further divided into three categories:

  • Mono threads: Smooth sutures that help rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen production. Mono threads are without barbs and are anchored to a point on the face or the scalp. They mainly tighten the skin and provide minimal amount of lift 
  • Cog threads: These threads have barbs that latch into your skin like small fish-hooks, to provide support and lift parts of your face.  
  • Screw threads: Made up of one or two intertwined  threads around the needle, these are used to help restore volume to sunken parts of your skin.

How do Threads work?

PDO Mono – After dissolvable mono threads are safely inserted into the superficial layers of skin, they leave behind a collagen structure that provides support for the skin, tightens the skin and prevents it from sagging. Due to the fibrotic reaction caused by the threads, the lifting and stretching action will continue even after the threads have been resorbed. The process of thread breakdown produces molecules of small molecular weight which subsequently induce the production of collagen and Hyaluronic acid by the skin. The resulting skin is more moisturised, revitalised and firm with a long lasting result.   

Lifting threads – Cog threads are used for skin lifting procedures in areas such as the cheeks, neck, and brows. Once they are safely inserted in the deep dermal layers of the skin, these barbed threads are then tightened and pulled back, re-suspending areas that are sagging. The barbs along the threads act as cogs to clasp the skin creating tension in the thread which lifts and suspends the facial area. Collagen is formed around the threads and their barbs resulting in an increased effect. This gives the skin a lifted, boosted and rejuvenated appearance.  

Why should you do threads?

Ageing causes loss of facial fat, especially around the cheeks, the eye area, the jowls and the neck. Accompanying this is skin ageing where the elastic fibres in the skin become thinner resulting in loss of facial elasticity. The two processes result in a longer face and wrinkles due to the “facial scaffolding”not being able to provide as much support.  

The production of collagen around the threads and their barbs helps to restore volume and improves the skin texture and elasticity resulting in a natural aesthetic outcome. 

Who is the ideal candidate?

Mono Threads  are an excellent option for patients with minimal to moderate signs of ageing wanting a non-surgical lifting procedure with minimal downtime that compliments their other skin procedures. Patients with deep expression lines even after Botulinum Toxin treatment, and those who need to limit their dosage of Dermal Fillers procedures are ideal for mono threads. 

 Thread lifts  are ideally suited for those who are experiencing mild to moderate issues of skin laxity, lines, and creases. It is also particularly suited to improving jowls and the definition of the jawline. Patients with good soft tissue volume, less facial fat and a small amount of skin to be lifted will benefit the most from thread lifts.  

Who is not suitable for threads?

Mono Threads are not suitable for patients with excessively saggy skin, or if the skin is very aged, thick or damaged.   

For thread lifting, good skin is essential as response to the treatment relies on the threads to tighten over the lifted area. Patients with thin skin may have more chances of sutures showing, rippling effect and bruising. Most importantly, thread lifts are not designed to replace surgical lifting; for patients wanting noticeable change, surgical lifting will be a more suitable option. 

How long do Threads last?

PDO threads will stay in the tissue for around 6 months, PLA threads around 12 months, and PCA threads will stay in the tissue for 12-15 months. The longer the thread lasts the more collagen is stimulated and therefore the result is much better and longer lasting. PDO and PLA threads cause fibrosis in the surrounding area and create type 1 collagen. PCA threads stimulate the production of type 1 and 3 collagen which helps to improve the condition of the skin giving a youthful appearance. 

What does the treatment involve?

After an interactive consultation, with the patient looking in the mirror and showing what type of results they hope to achieve, the direction and location of threads are planned to be placed. There are no incisions for mono threads or thread lifts. There are simply needlesticks through which the threads will be passed and placed. The location where the needle enters is anaesthetised with anaesthesia. 

During the treatment, absorbable sutures are inserted into strategically-selected areas of the face, in order to lift and tighten, and/or stimulate collagen production.  

The procedure is quick and mostly pain free.  

Is there downtime?

Mono Threads  have very little to no downtime, with minimal redness, bruising and swelling lasting 4-8 days. 

Lifting threads are a little longer in downtime. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, or minor skin displacement immediately following your treatment. This is temporary and should resolve within several days. These conditions can be controlled by sleeping with your head elevated, using ice packs and ensuring rest. You should also refrain from excessive head and neck movements and facials to assure proper healing.

How much do PDO threads cost?

Thread prices start from $550 per area.

What is the difference between PDO, PLLA and PCA threads?

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads have been around the longest of the three and have been used in surgeries since the 1980s. They’re made from a colourless polyester that breaks down in your body after about 6 months.‍ PDO threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. 

PLLA threads use poly L-lactic acid sutures with bidirectional cones made from a biocompatible polymer that has been used in orthopaedic pins, rods, screws and nails for bone fractures, and of course, sutures, for many years. PLLA threads are resorbable, acting on the deeper layers of the skin so they stimulate the body to produce its own collagen. 

PCA threads are the newest threads and are bio-absorbable, mono suspension threads of synthetic origin (caprolactone). They work by regenerating collagen over a longer time than PDO and PLA threads.
