What is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses biocompatible threads to lift and reposition sagging skin. These threads, are inserted beneath the skin to create a lifting effect, resulting in tighter and more youthful-looking skin.
Benefits of Thread Lifts:
Thread lifts provide a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift, delivering visible lifting and tightening effects.
Thread lifts offer natural-looking results, enhancing your features without appearing overly tightened or artificial.
The insertion of threads stimulates the production of collagen, which helps improve skin elasticity and texture over time.
Unlike surgical facelifts, thread lifts involve minimal downtime and discomfort, making them an attractive option for those seeking quick recovery.
Thread lifts can target various areas, including the jawline, cheeks, neck, and eyebrows, allowing for customized treatments.
The Thread Lift Procedure:
The thread lift procedure involves the following steps:
Begin with a consultation with a skilled practitioner who will assess your goals, examine your skin, and determine if you’re a suitable candidate for a thread lift.
Local anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Using a thin needle or cannula, the threads are inserted into the targeted areas beneath the skin. The threads are strategically placed to create a lifting effect.
Once the threads are in place, they are gently adjusted to achieve the desired lift and contour.
The immediate results of a thread lift are often visible, but the full effects become more pronounced as swelling subsides and collagen production is stimulated over time.
Aftercare and Recovery:
Following a thread lift, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort. These effects are temporary and usually subside within a few days. Your practitioner will provide post-procedure care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
Duration of Results:
Thread lift results can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years, depending on factors such as the type of threads used, your skin’s natural aging process, and how well you care for your skin.
With their ability to lift and rejuvenate sagging skin, thread lifts offer a compelling alternative to surgical facelifts.

What is the product?
Silhouette InstaLift™ with Micro-Suspension Technology ™ is a revolutionary product approved by the FDA in 2015. Micro-cones are placed in the deepest layers of the skin. These bi-directional cones provide an immediate lift and long-lasting lift. Over a few months, the body heals the area in the new position by laying down collagen and fibrous tissue.
The product is gradually absorbed by your body, it activates collagen production which results in a more youthful appearance that lasts up to two years.
This procedure is commonly compared to a thread lift. The differentiators between this procedure and a thread lift are the micro-cones that provide the lift, and the actual sutures which can be absorbed by your body.
Most clients see an immediate lift to facial skin, diminishing the appearance of nasolabial folds, jowls, and sagging.
What to expect from the treatment
Prior to the treatment, the client and physician discuss the client’s concerns, expectations, potential risks, steps in treatment, and aftercare needs.
After a thorough consultation, a nurse or physician prepares the client for a local anesthetic removing makeup and cleaning the face. The procedure takes 45 – 60 minutes. It is completed by a physician who has been thoroughly trained in this procedure.
The physician injects a local anesthetic into the tissue just beneath your skin. Once the sutures have been inserted, the physician positions them precisely to achieve the lift you want.
The results are immediate and often improve in the first two months.
Clients may experience some bruising and discomfort for up to 48 hours after the procedure. Most clients find that the discomfort and bruising begin to diminish within 24 hours.
Clients are encouraged to rest for the first day and to avoid strenuous exercise for two to three weeks.
