Book Appointment

Address problems caused by facial skin laxity

When used as an aesthetic treatment a thread lift results in instant skin lifting and tightening. It promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and more elastic skin.

Because a thread lift is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face. These include the:

  • Neck
  • Cheeks
  • Jaw line
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines

Before & After

Thread Lifts in Ann Arbor produce results after a few days and provide results that last for 2 to 3 years after treatment. 

BEFORE TREATMENT

1

Before treatment starts, we will apply a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic to the treatment site. The needle used during this treatment is so fine it will not cause any pain. However, we provide anesthesia to ensure you feel no discomfort during the treatment.

Since thread lifts are non-invasive, there isn’t a lot you need to do to prepare. However, there are some precautionary measures you can take to ensure the best results from your treatment. Here are things you should avoid one to two days before treatment:

  • Alcohol
  • Smoking
  • Omega fish oil supplements
  • Vitamin E
  • Aspirin, Ibuprophen, blood thinners

DURING TREATMENT

2

Once the anesthetic has taken effect, your treatment will begin. The threads are inserted via blunt tip needles, called cannulas. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. Then, the excess threads are cut off.

A thread lift is customized to your unique skin type, skin texture and aesthetic goals. Depending on the area you want treated, you may receive three or four carefully placed barbed threads. Different threads are used for varying degrees of lift, skin tightening and cellular rejuvenation.

AFTER TREATMENT

3

You should hold off on any dental treatments for the first two weeks after your thread lift.

Holding your mouth open for an excessive period of time can affect the results of your treatment. Moreover, you’ll want to sleep on your back for the first couple of weeks. This ensures you don’t put too much pressure on one side of your face.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG DO THE THREADS LAST?

How long the threads last depends on a number of factors, including the thickness of the threads, the quality of the threads and your body’s rate of metabolism. However, most of our clients find that the threads have dissolved within six to nine months.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Some results of the treatment, such as skin lifting and some of the contouring effects, are visible immediately after treatment. In fact, your skin may look tighter when you walk out of our office than it will a week later.

WHEN WILL I SEE THE FINAL RESULTS?

The final results of your thread lift will be seen within one to two months of your treatment. How long it takes you personally depends a lot on your age. Your age is one of the leading factors in how quickly your body produces new, healthy collagen. Collagen is the protein responsible for plumping up your cheeks, filling in fine lines and smoothing out wrinkles.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Most of our clients enjoy satisfactory results after just one treatment. Come in six to nine months after your first treatment so we can determine if you need a follow-up treatment. After that, you shouldn’t need another treatment for three years.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A THREAD LIFT?

If you’re looking to correct uneven pigmentation, lines, wrinkles, gaunt facial features or skin laxity of the face, you are a good candidate for a thread lift. You are a particularly good candidate for this treatment if you want an instant facial lift but don’t have the time or money to commit to a traditional facelift.

WHICH TREATMENTS COMPLEMENT A PDO THREAD LIFT BEST?

The best complementary treatments to your thread lift depend on the results you’re looking to achieve. If you are extremely concerned about lines and wrinkles exacerbated by facial motions, neuromodulators work best. If you’re more worried about static lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are the perfect complement for your thread lift.
