Before and after images
Thread Lift is a unique treatment enabling two combined actions:
The lifting effect is immediate and discreet. It is the result of compressing and elevating tissue as soon as the suture is applied.
After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.
The regenerative effect is gradual and natural. Polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of Thread Lift is a polymer that has been used in the medical field for many years. It is particularly biocompatible with human tissues and biodegradable.
Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.
The Thread Lift treament takes around 30 minutes in a doctor’s surgery.
A local anaesthetic is applied and the doctor inserts the suture under the skin to a depth of about three to five millimetres. No incision is required, as the suture is inserted using a fine needle. It is held in place with absorbable cones oriented in opposite directions.
Once the suture as been applied, the doctor performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect.
One or more sutures may be applied, depending on the patient and the treated area.
