Thread Lift – Skin sagging is considered one of the leading causes of skin aging on the face and body. There are surgical options to counteract this, but they are pretty invasive and carry certain risks

What Is A Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a non-surgical procedure in which polydioxanone threads (PDO) (= absorbable barbed threads) are used to remove, e.g., B. to make a face, neck, or décolleté look firmer and more youthful. Then, the fine lines are placed under the skin under local anesthesia to pull up the various tissues. It leads to a lifting, tightening, and smoothing effect.

PDO threads are completely soluble. From the moment the thread is inserted until it dissolves, the skin at the site of the PDO thread produces its collagen. It rejuvenates and tightens the skin.

A Suitable Candidate For A Thread Lift

  • Marionette lines, deep nasolabial folds, and wrinkles
  • Sagging cheeks or jaw lines.
  • Looking sad or tired due to sagging cheekbones or eyebrows
  • Uniform sagging of the skin on the legs, arms, or abdomen.

Thread Lift Aftercare – Cool Down, Rest, And Relax For Three Weeks

Of course, we will explain the exact procedure to you and accompany you immediately after the thread lift. Our experts will show you how you should behave in the time after the process so that the result is optimal in the end.

Immediately After The Treatment

Avoid touching the treated areas immediately after the thread lift. It increases the chances of a complication-free healing process.

The First Evening After The Treatment

Occasionally, the face’s redness, bruising, and swelling may occur after the treatment. To counteract these effects or to alleviate them, the skin on the affected areas can be carefully cooled with compresses. Anti-inflammatory painkillers can be taken to relieve any pain. A slight burn is also possible. These reactions are common and will subside. If you show unusual reactions, you can contact us at any time. You should put your head up for the first night and sleep on your back.

The First Five Days After Treatment

The skin around the treated areas should not be massaged or subjected to intense pressure in the first five days after the thread lift. As far as possible, we recommend avoiding strong facial movements when laughing, yawning, or similar facial movements. Regular facial expressions are, of course, not a problem.

The Following Two Weeks, Three Weeks After The Thread Lift

Visits to the beauty salon are possible again two weeks after the procedure. Finally, three weeks after the thread lift, the threads are in such a stable place that the break for all sports can be ended, and you can be active in your everyday life again. The end-of-thread lift aftercare can be sealed with a smile all over your face.


Thread lifting can successfully counteract this natural process. This modern non-surgical technique removes completely degradable threads in the connective tissue to stimulate the body’s collagen formation. As a result, the skin gains volume and elasticity, facial features tighten, and natural facial expressions are preserved. Thread lifting is, therefore, a non-scalpel facelift method. However, there are potential complications with this method as well. For example, there are reports that threads have broken during thread lifts.
