Threadlift Q & A

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology is a nonsurgical face-lift procedure that makes your skin tighter, lifted, and healthier-looking. Your dermatologist places the treads, made of natural materials, underneath your skin to stimulate collagen production and keep your skin lifted in a position that’s pleasing to the eye. The threads eventually dissolve.

What are the benefits of a thread lift?

Some of the many benefits you can expect with a thread lift at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology include:

  • Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Smoother skin
  • Tightened skin
  • Less skin sagging
  • No surgery
  • No scarring
  • Boost in self-confidence

Thread lifts are a minimally invasive alternative to surgical face-lifts. The recovery time is minimal, and thread lifts produce dramatic anti-aging results.

Is a thread lift right for me?

The Adult and Pediatric Dermatology team determines if you’re a candidate for a nonsurgical thread lift after reviewing your medical history and desired outcome. They examine your skin, discuss your treatment preferences, and let you know what to expect during and after the thread lift procedure.

What happens during a thread lift?

Your Adult and Pediatric Dermatology provider numbs the treatment area to ensure that you avoid discomfort during the thread lift. They make a tiny incision and place the threads under your skin in the targeted areas. Your specialist secures the threads in place and closes your incisions.

What should I expect after a thread lift?

After the procedure, the treated skin can be red, swollen, and tender during the healing process. You can ice the treatment area if needed or take over-the-counter painkillers. Avoid rubbing the treatment area while your skin heals.

Downtime is minimal, so you can resume your normal routine soon after treatment, but you might want to take the rest of the day off to rest. Avoid strenuous activity until your specialist gives you the OK.

You can expect immediate tightening results, with continued improvements in your skin's appearance over time as the cells regenerate.
