A 'thread face lift' is a non-surgical procedure that provides a gentle lift for patients who want to treat facial sagging. The temporary sutures produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. The presence of the thread also helps to stimulate collagen production, which provides various levels of lift as well. This can pull the skin back slightly and tighten the face.

A thread lift is considered a 'lunchtime' procedure, which is relatively quick. However, some swelling and bruising may occur, so it might be best to not make any big plans on the day of your procedure.

The effect of a thread lift should last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the thread used.
