What Is A Thread Lifting Procedure?

Thread lifts are the latest and greatest in non-surgical rejuvenation, and they’re becoming more popular among women seeking to correct signs of aging. And while they’re a relatively new procedure, we know that you have questions about them! So we’ve pulled together some common questions and answers to help you decide if thread lifting is right for you.

What is a thread lift?

Thread lifts, also called a barbed suture lift, aims to lift and sculpt the shape of your face. It tightens your skin by inserting small medical-grade thread material into your face and then “pulling” your skin up by tightening the thread.

Thread lifts have been around since 1990 but innovations in the material used for thread lifts have led to an increase in popularity in recent years.

The typical candidate for a thread lift is in their late 30s to early 50s and is just starting to notice the signs of aging. Those who can’t have a surgical facelift because of medical conditions that make general anesthesia risky may consider a thread lift as a safer alternative.

What should I expect during and after the procedure?

After the procedure, you should be able to go about your normal activities in about two weeks. You may experience some swelling and bruising for a few days after the procedure. Some patients have complained of mild numbness in the areas where they received their thread lifts, but this usually goes away within one to two weeks.

It’s important that you avoid strenuous activity, including weightlifting and sports, during this time so that the threads can heal properly and avoid complications such as infection or sagging skin down the line.

All in all, thread lifting is an effective way to rejuvenate your face and give it a more youthful appearance.
