How Does a Thread Lift Work?

If you have loose skin around your cheeks, neck, and jaw but don’t feel ready for the expense and recovery time of a facelift, a thread lift might make an excellent option. While it doesn’t provide the full results of a facelift, a thread lift can provide significant lifting and contouring that will last for many years.

What is a Thread Lift?

Using threads underneath the skin, a thread lift pulls up and smooths out loose skin. It targets lower face areas such as the cheeks, chin, jaw, and neck to give a more defined neckline, more sculpted jaw, and firmer features. 

At Manhattan Aesthetics, we perform thread lifts not just on the face but almost anywhere on the body. Thread lifts on the chest can correct lines and wrinkles in that area, and a thread lift can provide tightening and firmness in any area where you feel like you need it. You can enjoy the benefits of a thread lift anywhere on your body. 

How Does a Thread Lift Work?

A thread lift uses medical-grade thread material, which your provider will inject under the skin through tiny incisions. These threads have rough areas that grip the skin, allowing your provider to lift and smooth it from beneath. The threads are made of a material called PDO, which is also used in surgical procedures and has decades of medical use to prove its safety. 

These threads hold the skin in place until they dissolve after about six months. However, your results can last for several years. The presence of the threads signals the body to make collagen, so while the threads hold the skin in its lifted position, the body develops a healthy network of collagen that maintains your lift after the threads have gone.

How Much Does a Thread Lift Cost?

On average, a thread lift costs somewhere around $2200. Far less expensive than a full facelift, a thread lift offers an affordable option for people looking for a less costly option. The cost of a thread lift compares favorably to other skin-lifting procedures since, unlike the results of some other treatments, the results of a thread lift last for several years. 

Recovery from a Thread Lift

Most people return to their daily routine after the procedure with no downtime. You may have some swelling and soreness, but these should not hinder you from your usual activities. You should avoid strenuous activities or anything that might disturb the threads for about a week while they settle into place. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Thread Lift?

Most people are good candidates for a thread lift. The materials used in a thread lift are also used in medical procedures, so placing them in the skin is very safe. If you have severe sagging or loose skin, your provider may recommend a different procedure.
