Thread lifting is a non-surgical method that has been established for many years in order to lift the midface and chin/jaw-line area. If someone does not wish to undergo an invasive facelift surgery, this is the non-invasive way to counteract gravity and to lift certain parts of the face.
Since skin incisions are avoided and threads with small barbs are used instead, the method is particularly temperate. The threads that are used consist of PDO (polydioxanone) or PLC (polycaprolactone) and have been used successfully worldwide for many years. The first visible and immediate effects are a result of the threads that hook the skin and form a supporting structure for the skin that lifts and reshapes the facial structures, while the continuous effect through the disolving of the thread material stimulates collagen formation, which improves skin elasticity in the long run.
The threads are applied under local anesthesia, so that it is insignificantly invasive and uncomfortable for the patient. After application, the skin is gently massaged and cooled; the first effect is immediately visible, while there are almost no side effects other than a swelling for 1-3 days. Depending on the thread material used, the effect lasts anywhere between a few months up to 2 and a half years. Typical areas of application are the cheek / cheekbone contour (lifting), defining of the lower jaw line, lifting of the eyebrows and lifting of the nasolabial fold; the threads can also be used remarkably in the area of the body, i.e. on the abdomen, buttocks and arms. The treatment is outpatient and takes between 30 minutes to an hour.
