Call today to learn more about how the thread lift can revitalize your look. 

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift is a minimally invasive nonsurgical skin rejuvenating treatment. It uses special sutures or thread-like devices that lift and tighten the skin for a more youthful look.

The sutures attach to the middle layer of your skin and trigger the skin’s healing cascade during placement. As the sutures dissolve, the skin rebuilds the collagen layer, restoring strength and elasticity that prolongs the rejuvenating results. 

Types of threads and sutures available at RefineU Med Spa include:

Barb threads

Barb threads have tiny barbs that grab the skin, creating a natural lift to tighten loose skin. The team at RefineU Med Spa uses barb threads on the body, too.

Smooth threads

Smooth threads are effective at building collagen. The team uses these threads to create a mesh-like pattern that encourages smoother skin.

Twist threads

Twist threads are thicker threads and also stimulate collagen production. The team uses twist threads for the forehead, lips, nasolabial folds, and neck. 

RefineU Med Spa wants to ensure you look as young as you feel and has aesthetic experts performing the thread lift. 

What happens during a thread lift?

Your specialist at RefineU Med Spa customizes your thread lift procedure plan based on the results you want. They use a thin needle to place the sutures in specific areas around the face to get the desired look. A thread lift can:

  • Lift saggy cheeks
  • Smooth out forehead wrinkles
  • Lift loose skin on the neck

They clean your skin, apply a numbing cream, and insert the threads. A thread lift takes about an hour and requires little to no downtime. 

Can I delay a facelift with a thread lift?

A thread lift may delay or prevent your need for a facelift. The team recommends the nonsurgical facelift if you have mild to moderate skin sagging and want to restore a more youthful look. 

The thread lift also makes a good choice for people who can’t get a surgical facelift because of their medical history. 

How long does a thread lift last?

Results from a thread lift may last a few years. Protecting your skin from the sun can help prolong the results.
