Thread Lift

Book Your Thread Lift Consultation today!

A Thread Lift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to lift and rejuvenate sagging or ageing facial and neck tissues. It involves the use of specialised medical-grade threads that are strategically placed beneath the skin’s surface to provide support and lift specific areas on the face. These threads are typically made of materials like polydioxanone (PDO) or polylactic acid (PLLA), which are biocompatible and gradually absorbed by the body.

Why have Thread Lift Treatment?

Thread Lifts offer several benefits for individuals looking to address sagging or ageing skin without undergoing invasive surgery.

  • Non-Surgical: Thread Lifts provide a non-surgical alternative to traditional facelift surgery, reducing the risks, downtime, and scarring associated with surgery.
  • Immediate Results: While the full effects continue to improve over several weeks, some lifting and rejuvenation is often visible immediately following the procedure.
  • Minimal Downtime: Unlike surgery, Thread Lifts typically involve minimal downtime, allowing individuals to return to daily activities more quickly.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Thread Lifts provide natural-looking results, as the threads discreetly lift and support the skin without drastically altering one’s facial features.
  • Stimulates Collagen Production: The presence of threads in the skin stimulates collagen production, improving skin elasticity and texture over time.
  • Customisable: Thread Lift treatments can be tailored to address specific areas of concern, such as sagging cheeks, jowls (sagging of skin by the jawline), or brows, allowing for a personalized approach to facial rejuvenation.
  • Long-Lasting: While not permanent, the thread lift results can last for several months to a couple of years, depending on the type of threads used and individual factors.

It’s important to note that the specific benefits and duration of these results may vary depending on factors, including the type of threads used, age and skin condition.

A consultation with a qualified and experienced medical professional is essential to determine whether a Thread Lift is suitable and to discuss the expected outcomes based on individual needs and goals.


At Silicon Dental and Facial Aesthetics, we will administer local anaesthetic during the procedure to make this treatment as comfortable as possible. You might experience mild swelling, bruising, or soreness where the threads were placed for 3-7 days, which can be managed with analgesics as required.

While the full effects continue to improve over several weeks, some lifting and rejuvenation are often visible immediately after the procedure. This can last anywhere between 18-24 months, depending on the area of treatment and the type of thread being used.

Thread Lift treatment uses Intraline PDO threads, made from the highest quality PDO (Polydioxanone), a colourless, biodegradable, synthetic polymer. Polydioxanone has been used in a surgical context for over 30 years and is relied upon for suturing in cardiovascular and orthopaedic procedures due to its robust, safe, and reliable performance. Intraline PDO threads are specially designed for precise insertion and effective dermal retention, providing optimal results.
