Thread Facelift Complete Guide
Why V shape is important?
We tend to have an inverted V shape as we age due to the loss of the interstitial protein matrix, primarily collagen, and the gravity effect. The thread’s concept is to defy gravity and aid in restoring a youthful V-shape face. As a result, it is critical to understand that thread facelift will fill the area and help reshape the entire face.
How to Choose between Filler or threads?
The use of fillers is a developing field, particularly for midface augmentation; the main issue with fillers is their heavyweight. It becomes heavy as fillers absorb water. As a result, the fillers will move downwards or push the tissue unnaturally. The thread is loaded on a sharp needle or blunt cannula for threads facelift (threads lift).
The procedure is minimally invasive because we insert the needle into the skin’s subdermal layer and pull the needle out, leaving the thread behind. The thread will hold the skin against its inserted direction and will function as a scaffold for a college production. Because the thread is light and resistant, it will restore the youthful V-shape of the face.

Are Threads Suitable for All Skin Types
Threads are suitable for all skin types. However, the number of threads used varies according to the kind of skin and the intensity of pull required. The threads that we used in this operation are extremely safe and Health Canada approved. Moreover, they are compatible with the body and develop a layer of collagen fibers around them. Therefore, a thread facelift results in increasing the skin’s quality and firmness even after the threads dissolve.
As a result, a thread becomes a two-pronged anti-aging weapon. Along with elevating the skin, it activates the body’s ‘healing response,’ causing a significant increase in collagen production. Moreover, it plumps the skin and makes you look healthier and younger. A thread lift rejuvenates the face tissues on a continuing and progressive basis, gradually improving the skin’s tone and firmness. While the threads remain in place, the body’s healing reaction will be continually active as it attempts to ‘heal’ the sutured regions by producing more collagen
How effective is a thread facelift?
While a thread lift is not a substitute for a facelift or even a mini-facelift, it is an incredibly successful technique for people experiencing the effects of gravity and declining collagen synthesis, which results in skin laxity and drooping – in other words, someone like myself. The shorter recovery period (five days versus the lengthy recovery period associated with a complete facelift) is the proverbial icing on the cake.
Additionally, they are low risk because of their less invasive nature, with almost little danger of scarring, significant bruising, bleeding, or other problems. Patients may occasionally encounter discomfort or infection. Additionally, sutures may become apparent beneath the skin in rare situations; Additionally, thread lifts are far less invasive than facelift surgery. They are significantly more economical, making them an excellent interim operation if you’re considering a facelift in the future but haven’t chosen yet.
The Threadlift Procedure
We advise you to stay away from all factors and materials that may increase the bruising risk such as alcohol, aspirin, and multivitamins for five days before your treatment. Moreover, please stop all OTC that might raise your risk of bleeding such as Advil and ibuprofen, aspirin, omega-3 fatty acids, green tea, or green tea extracts.
- On the day of your treatment, Dr. Kamal, Ph.D., will discuss potential issues and provide recuperation counseling.
- Dr. Kamal’s specific technique may differ.
- He will clean your face with alcohol while you sit in a reclining chair. A nurse may inject a local anesthetic onto your skin using a needle.
- Dr. Kamal will next use another needle to make a small incision and implant a device called a cannula into the small hole.
- He will secure the thread and remove the cannula.
- They’ll conclude by cutting the thread and securing it in place.
Thread facelift Recovery and post-operation
Recovery time is negligible following a thread lift. You may notice swelling and bruising for the first 24 to 48 hours, but you can immediately resume most of your usual activities. Avoid scratching your face excessively during the first week following your treatment to avoid accidentally dislodging the thread. Additionally, we recommend refraining from pursing your lips, smoking, and drinking via a straw for several weeks.
Additionally, you may wish to avoid sleeping on your side for 1 to 2 weeks and vigorous exercise and sauna visits. Prop your head on a pillow when sleeping to avoid rolling onto your face in the middle of the night.
Price of thread facelift
The cost of a thread lift varies significantly as it depends on a variety of factors, including your location, the complexity of the treatment, and your provider’s level of skill. You might anticipate paying between 1200 to more than $3,600. Because a thread lift is a cosmetic operation, your insurance company is unlikely to fund it. However, we provide payment options that allow patients to stretch the cost over several months.
