Thread lift is a procedure where multiple PDO barbed threads are inserted beneath the skin helping reposition the soft tissues and resulting in a mild to moderate lift.
In addition, and most importantly, when placed under the skin, threads can be used to stretch, reposition and recondition areas of the skin that are sagging by assisting and guiding local collagen and elastin production.
Our thread lift Sydney expert has helped many clients fight the signs of ageing with this treatment. They can be performed in several areas of the face and the body, targeting areas that suffer from looseness, or giving an overall facial rejuvenation from the forehead to the neck area.
The dissolvable threads used today are associated with significantly less risk of complications than the permanent type that were used in the past.
It’s significantly more affordable and less invasive than a surgical facelift, with no incisions, fewer risks, and less recovery time.
Thread lifts are quick, with little downtime. Most people return to work as soon as the day after the procedure.

Thread lifts cannot replace a full-face surgical lift where excess skin needs to be removed.
With our thread lift Sydney treatment we will mark your skin in the areas where the thread will be inserted. Next, a numbing agent will be used to allow placement of the thread under the skin surface with minimal discomfort. There is no cutting, stitching or surgery.
Dimpled skin may be present and resolves within a week. Also very common is a mild swelling and bruising. You may also feel resistance when moving your face especially in the areas where the threads have been placed. Soft food is advised for the first week post treatment.
After treatment swelling will be present, real results will be visible in about one month with maximum improvement in three months.
Effects of a thread lift may continue up to one year. It is important to understand the procedure limitation. Thread lift is not a substitute for a surgical lift. Results can be enhanced with other cosmetic procedures such as hyaluronic acid fillers.
Our thread lift Sydney treatment use resorbable synthetic sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are made of the same materials as those used during surgery for wound closure, and have been used for over 30 years. This means that PDO threads provide not only adequate tissue support but also predictable uneventful absorption.
Our threads are supplied from within Australia and they are approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration TGA.
