Thread Lifting

Thread lifting is a gentle treatment method for tightening skin on the face in which different polydioxanon (PDO) threads are introduced into the skin. This method leaves no scars and does not require downtime. Four different thread types are used in this treatment:

  • Non-dissolving threads
  • Self-dissolving threads
  • Threads with barbs
  • Threads without barbs

Depending on the results of your skin analysis and the nature of the treatment area, different threads and treatment techniques are used. The combination leads to a lifting and rejuvenation of the corresponding tissue and can be applied to the following areas:

  • Eyebrow
  • Cheek
  • Chin area
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolleté
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Absence of scars
  • Visibly tighter skin immediately after treatment
  • Stimulation of the production of collagen via the thread and rejuvenation the skin sustainably
  • Absence of downtime, as compared to a surgical facelift

The time required depends on the treatment area and can take between 30 and 60 minutes.

A local anesthesia is applied to the areas to be treated. The threads are inserted and anchored subcutaneously, i.e. under the skin, with the help of a very thin guide needle. The needles are then removed and an invisible thread scaffold remains behind. This stable network, through the tension of the threads, both strengthens the skin tissue and stimulates the build-up of the body’s own collagen. The resulting tighter skin has a very natural appearance. The threads are broken down within 6 to 8 months.

You will see a positive effect immediately after the treatment. The full desired effect is visible after approximately 12 to 16 weeks. Expected results can range from a good to very good improvement in skin tightness.

Please avoid sauna, sports and sunlight on the first day after treatment. In the first week you should also avoid thermal laser treatments.

The collagen structures stimulated by the body after the treatment are slowly degraded by the aging process after about two to three years, so thread lifting can be repeated without any problems. The number of threads to be used depends on the area to be tightened and the client’s wishes. There are no restrictions on the number of treatments?

After treatment, temporary redness, slight skin irregularities, and swelling may occur. These are normal reactions to the treatment that can be covered well with make-up and usually disappear by themselves within a few days.

As a rule, no downtime is expected. You can perform your daily activities as usual.
