What is a Face Thread Lift?

Updated: Mar 7

The aesthetics market is saturated with procedures and treatments - many of which can be expensive, invasive, and long in terms of the treatment time and recovery.

Luckily, Face Thread Lift do not fit into this category, and instead present an affordable and minimally invasive alternative to the classic facelift. Best of all, the results can help achieve the same results as those more expensive (and more painful) surgical alternatives.

Let’s find out a bit more.

A Guide to the Facial Thread Lift

Surgical threads are used in this treatment, which is gaining immense popularity across Singapore and is slowly making its way all over the world across salons and clinics alike. The aim of a face thread lift is to sculpt the face and neck and restore a youthful complexion, all through the use of special threads which pull the soft tissue of the face back to create a more sculpted and youthful finish. The threads also promote the natural production of collagen in the skin, which we all know is crucial in building up that natural and healthy glow which we all love to see.

The treatment starts with a local anaesthetic being applied to the treatment area, to alleviate any pain or discomfort. The threads are then inserted into the soft tissue beneath the skin on your face, using a small cannula or needle to position the threads correctly. Once the threads are in place, the needles will be removed. Your treatment is over!

What happens after my treatment?

Yes, the threads stay inside the soft tissue of your skin and will dissolve slowly anywhere between 6 months and a year after treatment. By using dissolvable threads which are gradually absorbed by the body over time, the skin is allowed to develop a new connective tissue which holds the soft tissue in place even after the threads have disappeared - thus maintaining the aesthetic finish of the treatment years down the line.

Considered a very safe procedure, facial thread lifting is non-invasive and non-surgical, and is available at a fraction of the price of a classic surgical face lift.

Other benefits include:

  • The effect of the treatment is instant - you will walk away from your appointment and be able to notice the results instantly!

  • The procedure is non-invasive and enables you to return to your normal activities immediately. This makes it very easy to factor into your routine, with little required in the way of planning.

  • Face thread lifts are not painful and only take 45 minutes to an hour to complete.

What kind of thread is used?

The thread used will depend on your ideal results and your starting skin structure, with three

main types available: one to reverse skin laxity, one to lift loose skin, and one to restore volume to the face. All of these combined help to present that youthful look that anyone aged between 30 and 60 might be looking for in a treatment.
