How Long Will a Thread Lift Last?

If you want to improve early signs of aging such as skin laxity, lines, and wrinkles, a thread lift may work for you. While they do not achieve the results of a facelift, thread lifts can lift the facial skin to improve firmness and smooth out lines and wrinkles.

What is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts the facial skin using fine medical-grade threads. Thread lifts cannot take the place of a surgical procedure for moderate to severe signs of aging, but they work very well for people with mild signs of aging who want to see noticeable improvements. 

How Long Will a Thread Lift Last?

The PDO NovaThreads® last for three to six months before gradually dissolving. During this time, however, they stimulate the production of collagen. This collagen forms in the skin around the threads and maintains their lift and firmness even after the threads dissolve. Your results will last an additional six to twelve months or more

How Does a Thread Lift Work?

At Manhattan Aesthetics, we use NovaThreads®, made of a medical-grade material called polydioxanone (PDO). These threads contain tiny barbs, so when placed under the skin, they will stay in place and allow for lifting and tightening of the skin. This can improve firmness and smoothness in areas including the jawline, cheeks, forehead, and brows. By placing the threads within the hairline or around the ears, the skin can be lifted without leaving any marks. 

What is Recovery Like From a Thread Lift?

You may have minor swelling or some bruising in the areas where the threads were placed. You can still go back to all of your normal activities. However, you should avoid exercise or other physically strenuous activities for several days. We also recommend that you not rub your face or sleep on your side until the threads have become established. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Thread Lift?

The best candidates for a thread lift have mild signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. This procedure is ideal for those who want to see lifting and smoothing of the face without the downtime of a facelift. By avoiding surgery and the related downtime, a thread lift fits into almost any schedule and does not require you to miss any work or activities.
