Aging is inevitable, and it happens to everyone. Despite your best efforts, the ravages of time will eventually show on your face, so you may be wondering if a facelift is right for you.  Before you head to the surgeon, learn about thread lifts – your non-surgical facelift option.

A facelift used to be the gold standard procedure to turn back the clock. The surgery can significantly improve your looks, but It’s an invasive procedure with lots of recovery time. What if there was a way to get the benefits of a facelift without going under the knife?

The New Gold Standard

Have you heard of a thread lift? The thread lift is a non-surgical, cosmetic facial procedure taking the cosmetic enhancement industry by storm. It was virtually unknown until actress Gwyneth Paltrow spoke about her experience. 

According to several US surgeons, thread lifts can cause adverse side effects like scarring, and your sutures could split.

Fortunately, modern technology advances have made thread lifts much safer for tightening your saggy or loose skin. The procedure is FDA approved, and the dissolvable threads provide the safest and most affordable facial rejuvenation option. The thread lift doesn’t require surgery and is minimally invasive, so it’s an extremely safe way to improve the skin on your jowls, face, and neck. 

The latest thread lift procedure is different from the European version Paltrow endorsed. We now use dissolvable instead of permanently sewn thread, and that reduces your risk of infection. Because the lines dissolve, bacteria under your skin won’t have a foreign material to inhabit indefinitely. When the bacteria don’t have a place to hide, your immune system will eliminate them. 

What to Expect

Your practitioner will use a local anesthetic to numb your treatment areas. 

Then, we’ll use a needle to pass the threads underneath the deep layers of your skin. The lines have tiny cones on them, which securely grasp your skin beneath the surface, then pull it back to lift, smooth, and tighten your face. 

Since thread lifts are non-surgical, we won’t make any incisions, so the procedure is far more comfortable for you. 


The downtime with a thread lift is minimal, so your recovery time will be three days or less, and the results can last up to six months. You experience side effects like bruising, bunching, and swelling, but that will quickly fade.
