What Can A thread facelift Address?

  • Poor Skin Texture: The boost in collagen can also improve skin texture over time.
  • Early Signs of Aging: It's ideal for tackling the early signs of aging, reducing wrinkles, and fine lines.

Ideal Candidates for Thread Facelift

Ideal candidates for a Thread Facelift are those who:

  • Are experiencing mild to moderate signs of facial aging.
  • Have good skin elasticity.
  • Are generally in good health.
  • Have realistic expectations of what the procedure can achieve.
  • Are non-smokers or are willing to quit before the procedure.
  • Are looking for a less invasive alternative to a traditional facelift.
  • Can commit to a proper post-treatment care routine.
  • Understand that results, while significant, are not permanent and may require future treatments.


During the consultation, Dr. Truong will assess your facial anatomy, skin elasticity, and your specific aesthetic goals. He will then explain the procedure in detail, answer any questions you might have, and devise a personalized treatment plan. From pre-treatment preparation to post-procedure care, Dr. Truong and his team will be with you every step of the way.

Treatment Options

Alternatives to a Thread Facelift could include treatments such as Thermage, Ultherapy, or a traditional facelift. During your consultation, Dr. Truong will discuss these options and help you determine the best treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.

What happens during a thread facelift?

Your comfort is paramount during the Thread Facelift procedure. To begin, a local anesthetic will be administered to the treatment area. Then, using a fine needle, Dr. Truong will introduce the threads beneath the skin. As they are strategically positioned, they create a lifting effect. You may feel a mild pulling sensation during the procedure. Afterwards, you may experience some minor swelling or bruising, which should subside within a few days.


Post-procedure, you may experience minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness, which usually subsides within a few days. Most patients can return to normal activities within a week. Over the next few months, as collagen production increases, you'll see a continuous improvement in skin texture and firmness.

Post-Operative Care

After your Thread Facelift, it's important to avoid vigorous activities and excessive facial movements for a few days to allow the threads to settle. It's also recommended to sleep on your back to avoid putting pressure on the face. This care is crucial to ensuring the threads stay in place for optimal lifting and contouring effect.

Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

A thread facelift, also known as a thread lift, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses dissolvable sutures to lift and tighten sagging skin. It's often considered a less invasive alternative to a traditional facelift and can address a variety of mild to moderate aging-related issues, including:

  • Sagging Skin: The primary purpose of a thread lift is to "lift" sagging skin. This can be particularly effective for sagging cheeks, jowls, and necks.
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: While a thread lift is not primarily designed to address fine lines and wrinkles, the lifting effect can help to smooth out some of these lines, particularly those around the lower face and neck.
  • Volume Loss: As we age, we naturally lose volume in our face, which can lead to a hollow or sunken appearance. A thread lift can help to restore some of this lost volume by lifting and tightening the skin.
  • Skin Laxity: A thread lift can improve skin laxity by providing an immediate lifting effect, as well as promoting collagen production over time, which can help to improve skin elasticity.
  • Contouring: Thread lifts can also be used to enhance the contours of the face, such as the jawline and cheekbones.
  • Brow and Eyelid Drooping: Some practitioners use thread lifts to address mild to moderate drooping of the brows and eyelids.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to restore facial volume, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and enhance facial contours, providing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


Botox is a neurotoxin injected into specific muscles to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.

Skin Peels

Skin peels, also known as chemical peels, involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and peel off the outer layers, revealing fresher, brighter, and more evenly toned skin underneath.


Microneedling is a procedure that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing process and promoting collagen production for improved skin texture, tone, and firmness.
