Collagen-stimulating Face and Neck Thread Lifts
As collagen-stimulating threads are designed to provide lift when strategically placed within the skin, these non-surgical threads allow the correction of age-related changes in the skin such as volume loss and skin sag in the areas of the face and neck.
Understanding how thread lifts can help you
As we age, we naturally produce less and less collagen. Our skin begins to lose volume and thickness, causing wrinkles and creases to appear. As the skin’s support structure weakens, our skin begin to sag due to gravity.
Collagen-stimulating thread lifts work by anchoring into the skin and creating a gentle pull to provide a “lift”. The strategic placements of threads will correct any skin laxity, contour the face and neck, as well as restore collagen by stimulating its production. This prolonged collagen stimulation helps strengthen the skin’s structure and improve its firmness.
Non-surgical face lifts are recommended for both men and women over 30 years of age looking to undergo a non-invasive natural alternative to a surgical face lift.
Which areas can collagen-stimulating threads treat?
These non-invasive threads can be used to treat various parts of the face and neck including:
- Jaw line
How does Thread Lifts compare to Surgical Facelifts?
As with any other non-surgical option, the results of a thread lift cannot be directly compared to a surgical facelift performed by a plastic surgeon. Since threads can only anchor the tissues where they are placed, the amount of lift achieved is usually by a few millimeters. Therefore, it is ideal for those who are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity, and prefer a more natural result compared to facelift surgery.
Non-surgical face lifts using threads can be performed in less than a couple of hours and without the need for heavy sedation or overnight hospitalization, so can be much more affordable than a surgical face lift. Another advantage of thread lifts is that it is considered a low-risk procedure due to the fact that there is virtually no risk of scarring, excessive bruising, swelling, bleeding or other complications. This also means that there is minimal recovery time. This is why thread lifts is a great alternative for those who are not ready to have a surgical face lift procedure.

Threads We Use
Silhouette Soft is a type of cosmetic thread used for facial rejuvenation and contouring. The thread is made of a soft, biodegradable material and is inserted under the skin using a needle. The thread creates a lifting effect and helps to tighten and smooth the skin, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The threads are attached to the underlying tissue using cones that anchor the thread in place, providing an immediate lifting effect. Over time, the body’s natural healing process stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to further tighten and smooth the skin. This leads to a long-lasting improvement in skin quality, with results that can last for up to two years.
Mint PDO (Polydioxanone) is a type of thread used in cosmetic procedures for skin rejuvenation and lifting. The threads are inserted under the skin using a needle and are made of a material that is gradually absorbed by the body over time, causing the skin to lift and tighten. The threads are made of polydioxanone, a synthetic, absorbable material that is commonly used in surgical sutures due to its biocompatibility and strength. Mint PDO threads are a popular choice for non-surgical facial rejuvenation due to their effectiveness, safety, and long-lasting results.
Aptos HA threads are a type of facial rejuvenation treatment that uses fine, absorbable threads to lift and tighten sagging skin. The threads are made of a biocompatible material called polydioxanone (PDO), which is commonly used in surgical sutures. In addition to the lifting and tightening effect, Aptos HA threads are also infused with hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in the skin that helps to maintain moisture and plumpness. The HA in the threads provides additional hydration to the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
