How does a Face Thread Lift work?

A thread lift, also known as face-lifting, is a minimally invasive aesthetic surgery. The way it works involves specifically designed multi-directional barbs evenly shared along the threads to uplift sagging tissues gently to suspend them through a special technique that allows the surgeon to realize a relaxed, fresh and yet natural appearance. Take for example that the thread is like steel and concrete, that lay a good foundation in building a house. The threads will support the drooping skin and restore natural contours of the face with a strong force under the skin. The thread dissolves after several months, but before then, they produce fibrosis which creates a new support scaffolding of collagen for the skin. A thread lift is used for the following improvements in the aging, sagging face and neck.

  • Face Lift / Neck Lift

  • Brow lifting

  • Correction of Marionette lines

  • Jowl correction

  • Reposition of sagging cheeks

  • Reduction of lip lines & lip shaping

  • Adjustment of facial and asymmetric brows

Why Choose a Thread Lift?


Besides restoring the natural facial contours, other advantages include skin color, new skin firmness, texture, and tone.


The following are the main advantages:

  • The procedure is safe, effective, requires no general anaesthesia, and has minimal downtime.

  • The redness of the skin or rough pores can be regenerated to elastic skin.

  • It stimulates epidermal growth factors and lightens the skin.

  • It removes spots and freckles.

  • It is reliable and does not react to rejection.

  • It can remove wrinkles immediately without side effects and can last for at least two years.

  • It is instant micro-plastic surgery that can be referred to as a lunch-time procedure. It involves no incisions, stitches, bruises, scars, or bandages. After the surgery, a majority of the patients can return to work and light exercise the following day. And within 1 to 2 weeks of post-treatment, they can do vigorous exercise.
