Do you want to rejuvenate your facial skin without going under the knife? Thanks to modern medical advancements, there’s a fantastic option called thread lift. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we offer this convenient, effective, and budget-friendly alternative to help you achieve smooth, firm skin with elevated contours.

Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening With Threads

Facial threading, also known as a thread lift or a barbed suture lift, is a minimally invasive solution for lifting and rejuvenating facial skin. It’s a quick, budget-friendly, and safe way to breathe new life into your appearance, all in under an hour. Ideal for those concerned about signs of aging or sagging in specific areas like the forehead, brow area, under eyes, cheeks, or jawline, this procedure uses medical threads to gently lift and tighten your skin. It involves no downtime, so you can return to your daily activities right after!

Thread Lift Treats:

  • Sagging forehead
  • Drooping brow area
  • Under-eye concerns
  • Cheek and neck laxity
  • Jawline and jowl issues
  • Nasolabial folds around the nose
  • Marionette lines around the mouth
  • Other facial wrinkles and creases

Facial Thread Lift vs. Facelift

Thread lifts and facelifts are both cosmetic procedures aimed at rejuvenating the face, but they differ significantly in terms of invasiveness, cost, and downtime. A facial thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting medical threads beneath the skin to lift and tighten sagging areas. It is a quick and cost-effective option, often appealing to those looking for subtle improvements without the extensive recovery associated with surgery.

On the other hand, a facelift, or rhytidectomy, involves making incisions to lift and reposition the deeper facial tissues and remove excess skin. It offers more dramatic and longer-lasting results than a thread lift but comes with a higher cost and a longer recovery period.

While a thread lift suits individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity, a facelift is better suited for those with more advanced aging concerns and a willingness to undergo surgery.

Facial threading isn’t a permanent solution, but its results can last for years. For those in the early stages of aging, it provides a low-risk way to test how a more permanent procedure might enhance their appearance. Many of our patients have marveled at the natural, youthful look achievable through facial threading. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can help you determine which option best fits your needs and goals.

How Thread Lift Works

Thread lift utilizes specially designed medical threads made from biocompatible materials such as polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are strategically inserted beneath the skin’s surface using fine needles. Once inserted, they create a subdermal support structure. Over time, the body naturally reacts to these threads by producing collagen, which enhances skin elasticity and firmness. This collagen formation results in a tightening effect, lifting sagging areas and improving the overall texture and appearance of the treated skin.

Advantages of Thread Lift:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Lower cost compared to facelift surgery
  • Quick treatment with minimal downtime
  • No need for general anesthesia
  • Reduced risk of scarring
  • Natural-looking results
  • Stimulates collagen production for long-term improvement
  • Ideal for mild to moderate skin laxity
  • Suitable for various facial areas
  • Minimal discomfort during and after the procedure

Thread Lift Treatment in Hampton Roads

Before your thread lift session, you’ll consult with one of our plastic surgeons to discuss your goals and expectations. On the day of the procedure, your face will be cleansed, and local anesthesia will be applied to ensure your comfort. Once you’re numb and comfortable, your surgeon will begin the thread insertion process. They will use fine needles to insert the medical threads beneath your skin in precise locations.

The threads have tiny barbs or cones that grip onto the skin and provide the lifting effect. The number of threads and their placement will depend on your specific needs. As the threads are positioned, your surgeon will adjust them to achieve the desired lift.

The threads create a supportive network under your skin, immediately lifting sagging areas. Over time, these threads stimulate collagen production, further improving your skin’s texture and firmness.

The entire procedure usually takes less than an hour, making it a convenient option for busy individuals. Afterward, you may experience mild swelling or bruising, but these side effects are temporary and typically subside within 24 to 48 hours. You can return to your daily activities almost immediately, with the full benefits of a rejuvenated, lifted appearance becoming more apparent in a few weeks. The final results last a year or more.
