Thread Lift For Youthful Facial Appearance

What is a thread lift?

For many years, facelift surgery was the only way to reverse the effects of aging, such as drooping cheeks and jowls.

However, recently, the facial thread lift procedure has become a more mainstream surgical procedure that aims to reverse the effects of sagging facial skin.

A face thread lift is one of the most preferred non-surgical solutions for dealing with droopy facial skin. It can be used to correct sagging skin along the mid and lower face.

The treatment uses fine threads to lift the face by providing an immediate lift, while at the same time activating the body’s healing processes and collagen remodeling.

Who is the ideal candidate for a facial thread lift?

Typically, a facial thread lift is ideal for individuals who desire a non-surgical option to reverse the effects of aging or to delay the onset of aging in the face.

You may be an ideal candidate if you have:

  • Folds appearing in the creases around your mouth (marionnete lines)
  • Folds appearing in the creases around your nose (nasolabial folds)
  • Mild to moderate sagging skin
  • Mild lines and wrinkles on the face, forehead, and neck.

In addition to a face lift effect, threads can also be used to lift the eyebrows and contour the jawline.

What does a facial thread lift consist of?

A facial thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that is usually completed in-office under local anesthesia.

After the application of local anesthesia, Dr Azzi will make small incisions through which threads are passed with the help of fine needles. These threads are made of dissolvable medical grade material.

The threads pull and lift the facial skin to achieve a more youthful look, similar to a facelift procedure, however, with more modest results and a quicker recovery.

How much does it cost?

The cost of a facial thread lift generally depends on the treatment plan that is developed for you. Other adjunctive procedures will also have an impact on the final cost.

During the consultation, Dr. Alain Azzi will perform a physical exam, and will review your specific needs. A member from our patient care coordination department will subsequently provide you with information concerning the cost of a facial thread lift in Montreal.
