Threadlifts are the New Trend
Skin laxity can present in varying degrees. However, when women and men begin to notice falling cheeks, developing jowls, and a sagging neck, many decide it’s time for facial rejuvenation.
That being said, a traditional facelift can cost upwards of $10,000 and require weeks of recovery.
Fortunately, a threadlift can provide patients with a non-surgical and more cost-effective alternative, with minimal downtime. With so many advantages, it’s not surprising that threadlifts are the new trend to look younger and refreshed without surgery.
So, is a threadlift right for you? Keep reading to learn all about the new and improved threadlift and what patients can expect should they decide to undergo this procedure.
What Is a Threadlift?
A threadlift is a minimally-invasive procedure that lifts saggy cheeks, jowls, and necks with absorbable sutures.
This new generation of threadlifts is safer and more effective than its predecessors, which had a considerable risk of scarring, infection, and visible lumps and bumps.
The hottest trend in threadlift procedures in known as EuroThreads.
The EuroThreads are a proven medical aesthetics treatment that not only is considered the ultimate in luxurious cosmetic pampering; but it also provides superior results commonly associated with skin rejuvenation, lifting and contouring.

Why Are Threadlifts a New Trend?
Despite some success in the late-90’s, threadlifts fell out of favor and were deemed problematic by providers and patients. That’s because these older methods involved permanent barbed sutures, that if knotted incorrectly, could lead to the development of scar tissue and nodules.
However, today’s threadlifts use biodegradable, PDO sutures with cones. They are inserted with cannulas to grab and lift loose skin, while also initiating an inflammatory response.
As a result, new collagen and elastin are produced, and this added volume supports and lifts skin once PDO sutures are absorbed within six months.
What Are the Benefits of a EuroThreadlift?
A threadlift with PDO sutures is a minimally-invasive procedure that can be performed in one-to-two hours using local anesthesia. It’s an excellent option for a patient with mild- to-moderate skin laxity that is unable or unwilling to undergo a surgical facelift with general anesthesia, increased risks, and a longer recovery.
Plus, a threadlift can provide immediate and long-lasting results for up to two years, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional facelift.
Provides instant results without general anesthesia, hospitalization or an extended recovery period. Provides immediate boost to correct the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. Treatments are effective for areas in both the face and body.
This minimally invasive, in-office procedure promotes your body’s natural collagen and elastin production. Due to the insertion of threads, blood flow and lymphatic circulation increases resulting in your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
Reduces the appearance of aging through thread insertion beneath the skin like that acts as a support system while promoting collagen production. Results from the dermis augmentation are noticed after four to six weeks. Individual results vary.
What Are the Risks of a Threadlift?
In the hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, a threadlift is a very safe and effective procedure. That’s one of the main reasons threadlifts are the new trend.
However, like any elective treatment, a threadlift has the potential for mild and temporary side effects including soreness, swelling, and bruising.
