What is Threadlifting and Why You Should Try It Out This 2022

by | Jan 1, 2022

“Threadlifting is Known as the Lunchtime Lift with little Recovery Time and Here’s Why.”

Threadlifting is a cosmetic procedure done using thin strings called threads which are placed under the skin in order to lift and fill out the area. Threads are most often used in the face, however, they could be inserted in the buttocks area as well. Most threads last approximately six months after which they dissolve. The threads lift and stimulate the tissue, causing the body to deposit collagen along the threads so when they disappear, some collagen will remain and provide additional volume and support to replace the threads.

There are two main types of threads.  Barbed threads are designed to grip the tissue so that the skin can be pulled upwards and held in place.  In contrast, smooth threads are placed to add volume but do not lift or hold the tissue.  Both types of threads are typically used at the same time to achieve lifting and increased volume.  There are several brands of threads available on the market today and they are all relatively similar.

Threadlift procedures can be performed by doctors or nurses.  The threads are placed using small needles while the patient is awake.  Threadlift recovery is minimal.  Most patients can return to work the next day which is why some people term this type of procedure a “lunchtime lift.”

Most patients that undergo threadlift procedures are in their 40’s to 50’s but younger and older patients can have threadlift procedures as well. Thicker skin typically leads to better results since thin skin can lead to some visibility of the threads in some cases.  Many patients decide to have threadlift procedures if they are not ready for facelift surgery yet or if their facial ageing is less severe.

Since thread lift results are temporary and last only approximately six months, it is recommended to repeat the threadlift procedure every six months to maintain the results.  Usually, the repeat threadlift procedures are not as involved as the initial treatment.

Threadlift procedures can be combined with other treatments as well including Botox, fillers, peels, lasers, and facials in order to get even more improvement.  These treatments complement each other so using multiple modalities is the best way to get effective and longer-lasting results.
