Thread Facelift Results

A silhouette facelift is the most advanced non-surgical facelift that any cosmetic clinic can provide. The threads are made of biodegradable sutures that offer immediate tightening and gradual regenerative results.

Threads were first used for cosmetic purposes in the late 1990s. However, Canada was late to adopt this practice. Threading is a simple but difficult technique. The threads are inserted through a cannula and tucked behind the skin.

What are the threads?

They are cosmetic sutures with different polymers such as Poly L-lactic acid (PLLA) and polydioxanone (PDO) threads. The advantage of threads is the immediate lifting without adding volume to the area.

Non-surgical facelift Case 1031

The patient is a female in her mid-60. Her main complaint is the saggy skin around the jawlines (Jowl Sulcus). She is on blood pressure medication but healthy otherwise.


Firstly, we marked the entry points and injected lidocaine without norepinephrine. Then we implanted the threads on the dermal level to give more effective results. And lastly, We applied cold compressing directly after the procedure.

Side Effects

The most common adverse effects are bruising and swelling, which last about a week but vary based on the individual’s skin type.
