Thread Lift Q&A

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift is a nonsurgical facelift. During the procedure, the highly skilled nurse practitioner at Colorado Skin and Vein uses a safe and effective absorbable suture made from a complex sugar (aka PDO).


The PDO threads have tiny points that anchor and lift the sagging tissue when inserted into the appropriate layer of skin; this can instantly rejuvenate and contour the area. The thread lift also lifts the fat and stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and elastic.


The team performs the thread lift using local anesthesia, and the procedure causes minimal discomfort and downtime with no scarring.

Am I a candidate for a thread lift?

Colorado Skin and Vein’s nurse practitioner determines if you’re a candidate for a thread lift after a consultation. If you’re an adult with signs of aging in the neck, jowls, or jawline, then they may consider you a candidate for the nonsurgical treatment. 


The thread lift can also be used the lift the tip of the nose, helping the nasal bridge look straighter. It can also lift the brow. The team at Colorado Skin and Vein has excellent experience and results with these advanced techniques. Patients who follow a healthy lifestyle with appropriate skin care and maintain a healthy weight get the best results from a thread lift.

What happens during a thread lift?

Your Colorado Skin and Vein provider customizes your thread lift to match your beauty needs. They review your goals and cover all the details of the procedure at your consultation. You and your provider will determine what areas, such as brows, jowls, midface, nose, jaw, or neck, would benefit most from a thread lift.


While you relax in the aesthetic chair, your provider cleans your skin and administers a local anesthetic to ensure a very comfortable procedure. Next, your provider inserts a fine cannula into the appropriate layer of skin, carefully places the PDO thread to grab, and lifts the tissue into the desired position. 


The thread lift at Colorado Skin and Vein takes 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of areas undergoing treatment.

What happens after a thread lift?

There is minimal downtime associated with a thread lift, and you can normally resume your usual routine after the procedure. Any social downtime is usually confined to temporary swelling.


The team at Colorado Skin and Vein advises you to sleep on your back for two weeks following the procedure. They also recommend not scheduling any dental appointments during those two weeks of recovery following your thread lift. 


Your provider will give you specific recommendations about activities based on your normal routine. You should see improvements in your look right away, and results last up to 18 months.
