Thread lifts – a minimally invasive alternative to a surgical facelift – improves the shape of your face, create volume, and improves fine lines. Results typically last between nine months and a year depending on the area treated.
A thread lift is an alternative to a traditional facelift that improves the appearance of sagging skin. The treatment, originally developed in South Korea, involves inserting threads made of an absorbable material called PDO under the skin to alter the position of facial tissue and help give it a lift. The threads pull the skin into a desirable position, providing immediate rejuvenation.
Thread lifts use a series of small cannulas to insert them into the face. Mono threads feature smooth sutures that anchor to soft facial tissue, providing a slight lift. Cog threads have a barbed texture that grips onto surrounding facial tissue more tightly and encourages collagen production, while screw threads featuring intertwined sutures help improve facial volume.
Thread lifts have been around since the early 1990s. However, innovations in suture materials have made them significantly more popular and effective in recent years. The treatment lifts your skin, pulling it taut from the inside, making it appear more youthful without the need for all the usual cutting and stitching required by a regular facelift.
Thread lift results typically last around nine to twelve months, depending on your body’s ability to process and eliminate the absorbable PDO sutures. Some patients see results lasting more than a year, though this is rarer.

If you have noticed facial sagging or a structural change in your face or neck, then you might be a good candidate for a thread lift. The ideal candidates for the procedure at Colorado Skin & Vein are patients in their late thirties to fifties who are non-smokers and in good health.
