Threadlift Q & A

What is a thread lift?

Your team of specialists at All Island Dermatology perform thread lifts as a safe alternative to traditional facelifts. A thread lift is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical procedure to lift, tone, and tighten the skin on your face.

Your skilled provider uses temporary surgical sutures to lift up your sagging skin. Instead of surgically removing loose skin, it’s stitched up into the desired position, causing it to lift and tighten.

Your body perceives the threading as an attack, so it mounts a defense. This may sound counterintuitive, but your body responds to this “threat” by encouraging the release of collagen, a critical building block of firm, youthful, supple skin.

How does the thread lift work?

Your provider applies local anesthesia to numb the areas you’re targeting in your thread lift. The team makes a tiny incision and routes special threads under your skin and pulls them to tighten and firm your sagging, loose skin.

The clear, thin threads dissolve over time without leaving scars or any other evidence.

Am I a good candidate for a thread lift?

A thread lift is a great choice for you if the skin on your face is:

  • Sagging
  • Wrinkled
  • Sinking
  • Loose

A thread lift is best for men and women between ages 30-60 who show subtle signs of aging. If you have severe needs, talk to your provider about other ways to correct your problems.

How long does a thread lift treatment take?

It depends on how pervasive your skin issues are, but typical thread lifts take between 1-2 hours. At your consultation, your provider carefully evaluates your skin and works with you to formulate a custom treatment plan so you know exactly what to expect.

Are there side effects from thread lift treatments?

You may be bruised and sore and have some mild swelling after your thread lift, but these effects are temporary. After they dissipate, you’ll see the lifting effects of your thread lift, which have a cumulative effect over the next couple years.
