Thread Lift FAQs

Thread Lift vs Face Lift?

Expect a subtle transformation with a thread lift, unlike the more dramatic results of a facelift.  Thread lifts are effective for about 12-18 months, while facelifts can last up to a decade. While facelifts are pricier and more permanent, correcting undesired results involves additional surgery, with greater risks than thread lifts.  Extensive skin laxity may not be suitable for a thread lift; it’s best as a rejuvenation technique promoting collagen growth, potentially delaying the need for a future facelift.

What Should I Do Before the Procedure?

To minimise any bleeding and bruising, avoid alcohol and blood-thinning medications like NSAIDs before the procedure.

What Aftercare is Required?

Post-procedure, alleviate pain with paracetamol, and use the provided face bra.  Apply intermittent ice to reduce swelling.  Avoid facial skin stretching and exercise or activities for a few days, including wide-mouth activities, and refrain from dental or skin treatments for two weeks.  Sleep on your back with your head elevated for four days.

How Safe is it?

The Threads are made from  PDO (Polydioxanone), a dissolvable sugar used safely in surgeries for over 30 years.  Allergic reactions are unlikely.  Side effects, though rare, may include puffiness, bruising, infection, or granuloma. Research possible side effects before the procedure.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Potential side effects include puffiness, bruising, infection, granuloma, needle hematoma, pain, protrusion, migration, and facial nerve trauma.  Unlisted side effects may exist.

Can a Thread Lift Be Combined with Other Cosmetic Treatments?

Thread lifts can be combined with various treatments like anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, collagen-stimulating injections, PRP or PRF, and Laser Genesis.

Will Thread Lift Change My Facial Features?

Thread lifts rejuvenate the skin for a fresher, younger look without altering natural facial features.  The lifting effect is subtle and natural.
