Thread Lifts

A threading facelift is a wonderful non-surgical alternative to give your face a more youthful appearance. Performed by expert technicians, a thread lift can tighten areas of your facial skin that have become wrinkled or increase the tautness in areas that are sagging due to ageing. If you are searching for a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that will help you look and feel younger and more beautiful than ever, consider Secret Skin, the best thread lift clinic in Sydney.

Considering facial threads?

When we say ‘thread lift’ we are also referring to terms such as ‘suture lift’ or ‘stitch lift’. The treatment is not new but has gained popularity over the past few years with the development of new absorbable threads.

What is a facial thread?

As shown in the picture, a thread facelift involves using filaments, like a strand of hair, attached to a fine needle. The threads are inserted under the skin, leaving the suture material in the fat layer when removed. The most common type of filament used in a threading face lift is polydioxanone or PDO, a safe material that has been used in surgery for decades.

Who should use them?

Threads are safe for anyone wanting tighter skin on any of the facial areas or neck region.  Commonly treated areas include the jawline, nasolabial folds and necklines but really any area of concern can be treated with a thread lift.

How much downtime?

The short answer is next to none! Some patients may have some mild swelling and bruising for a few days after their thread facelift. Generally, we find that most patients tolerate the treatment exceptionally well and require minimal recovery time. This makes a thread lift in Sydney an excellent choice to be performed during your lunch break, for example.

Sometimes there might be some mild dimpling of the skin seen if you look closely, but for the most part, this is unnoticeable to the naked eye. There’s usually some discomfort after any cosmetic injectables procedure, but there should never be any pain.

Occasionally one of the threads may back out and be visible, just like a hair on your chin, but this can be easily pulled out with tweezers, or you can simply trim it off.

How long do the results last?

You will need to be patient to see the changes from a facial thread lift as the results gradually develop over 6 weeks.  However, the good news is that they last for up to 2 years for most patients.
