How Does Thread Lift Work?
Using a fine needle, threads are precisely inserted underneath the target areas to lift sagging soft skin tissue. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, targeting the threads. The doctor then applies slight pressure on the area to reshape the surface and achieve an instant lift. The production of collagen replaces depleted facial volume and gives your face a more radiant and youthful appearance. The threads continue to stimulate collagen production, improving the results over 3-6 months.
Who is a Suitable Candidate for a Thread Lift?
Thread lift is perfect for those who are in their 30’s, 40’s or 50’s and are experiencing wrinkles, mild to moderate sagging of facial skin, and loss of volume due to aging. If you don’t want surgery but prefer a non-surgical procedure, thread lift is your best option. For those who have had a surgical facelift, but are experiencing drooping skin, they can also benefit from the procedure.
Thread lifting can be used for:
- Elevating sagging brows
- Lifting sagging cheeks
- Correcting asymmetry of the face and brow
- Lifting the jowl area
Can Older Clients Get a Thread Lift?
Older clients without extensive aging and excessive skin laxity on the face can also enjoy the benefits of a thread lift, but they should have realistic expectations.
Why Should I Choose Thread Lift over Surgical Facelift?
The main difference between traditional facelift and thread lift is that the former is a surgical procedure as it involves cutting your skin and reattaching it to tighten skin, while thread lift merely uses what’s already there. The main benefits for choosing thread lift over traditional facelift include:
- Lower risk – Thread lift is not invasive like surgical procedures, which may result in complications like scarring and infection. Traditional facelift may also involve pain, bruising, and scarring.
- Lower cost – Traditional surgeries are more expensive compared to the more affordable thread lifts
- Faster recovery – Thread lift has minimal downtime, unlike surgical procedures which require longer recovery times.
- More natural results – Thread lifts only make you look younger, but surgical facelifts can leave stretched-looking skin and scars.
How Long Does a Thread Lift Procedure take?
The procedure is not as complicated and involving as surgical procedures, thus takes very little time. In most cases, about 60 minutes are usually enough.
How Soon after a Thread Lift Procedure will I see Results?
One of the good things about a thread lift is that results can be noticed after the procedure. However, they continue to improve over the next 3 to 6 months, as collagen encapsulates the threads to further fill the face.
Unfortunately, aging is a continuous process, and hence, no anti-aging procedure is permanent. The results last about one year, but the procedure can be used again in the future.
Does Thread Lift Hurt?
Unlike a surgical facelift, thread lift does not require the need for a general anaesthetic. However, most clients report slight discomfort, which is tolerable.

What are the Side Effects of a Thread Lift?
You may experience some light bruising, mild swelling, and minor redness which usually subside within a week or two. Since the procedure does not have any severe side effects, clients can resume their normal activities the next day. However, we recommend clients to avoid facial movement such as heavy chewing and some facial expressions for about one to two weeks to achieve best results.
What Should I Expect at the Consultation?
A consultation is the first step to improving your skin appearance. During the session, our doctors will assess your overall health and discuss your goals to determine if the thread lift is suitable for you. Be ready to discuss with us all medical conditions, past surgeries, current medications, and other treatments you’ve had. This will also help us to formulate a customised treatment plan that will give you the best results. We will also clarify any concerns you might have and provide aftercare information to help you maintain the results.
How Much Does the Thread Lift Procedure Cost?
At DP MediSkin, we believe that every client is unique hence formulate a customised treatment plan based on their individual requirements. Therefore, we are not able to provide cost estimation before our doctors examine the areas that need to be addressed. Also, the cost will depend on several factors, including the number of threads used.
Can Thread Lift be Used Together with other Treatments?
A thread lift treatment is generally very effective in lifting the sagging skin and smoothening the skin. However, it can also be combined with other treatments to boost results and extend their longevity. For instance, laser treatment can increase collagen and elastin production, which can make a significant difference in the appearance of your skin.
