What Is A Thread Lift?

Thread lifts at LA Beauty Skin Center are a minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelifts. PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread Lifts allow for natural looking results, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through natural collagen stimulation.

About The PDO Thread Lifts

A PDO Thread lift utilizes absorbable polymer which makes this minimally invasive procedure highly effective. The PDO threads come in three textures: mono, screw and cog type. Mono threads are smooth and are primarily used for a subtle lift to the face.

Cog threads are textured and provide a better lift and an increase of collagen production in the treated area. Finally, screw threads are intertwined threads which provide an increased volume to the area. Which thread is right for your desired goal can be determined at your complimentary consultation! 


What Do I Need to Do Before Treatment?

Here are things you should avoid one to two days before treatment:

  • Alcohol
  • Ginko
  • Omega fish oil supplements
  • Vitamin E
  • High-intensity workouts
  • Steam rooms and saunas

What To Expect During A Thread Lift?

PDO threads are inserted into the treatment area via blunt tip needles, called cannulas, or sharp-tipped needles depending on the specific threat lift treatment. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. Then, the excess threads are cut off. A very quick and efficient procedure.

Thread Lift vs Face Lift

One of the biggest advantages of a thread lift compared to a face lift is recovery time. When a patient undergoes a surgical facelift, they are sedated with general anesthesia. It is an invasive procedure that has potential serious life threatening side effects and requires several days of recovery. Frequently, a surgical face lift will also require days to be taken off of work as well.

A thread lift however is significantly easier. It is performed with local / topical anesthesia which allows for the patient to drive themselves home after the procedure. Certain patients may have soreness, redness or swelling, but usually patients can return to work immediately as this is a minimally invasive procedure.

Who Is A Good Fit For A Thread Lift?

An ideal candidate for a thread lift is a patient in their late thirties and older. It is ideal for someone looking to restore shape and reduce fine lines.

The “fox eyes” is currently in vogue as young celebrities and models have been noticed with their transformed eye and brow shape into a more elongated, almond shape.

This puts this aesthetic trend in high demand.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

Most of our clients at LA Beauty Skin center see satisfactory results after a single thread lift treatment with a follow up schedule 6-8 months after initial treatment.

Treatments typically last up to three years but can vary depending on the patient and lifestyle.

How Long Does A Thread Lift Take?

Typically, a thread lift takes somewhere between 15 to 30 minutes. As the procedure is minimally invasive, patients are free to return to the rest of their day following the treatment.

How Much Does A Thread Lift Cost?

Pricing for a thread lift at LA Beauty Skin Center depends on the type and amount of threads needed.

The number and type of threads needed is determined during complimentary consultation.

Consultations with nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants are $50, and will be applied to the treatment cost if the treatment is done on the same day.
