Thread Lifts

Thread Lifts

For patients looking for a minimally-invasive alternative to a facelift, we offer the convenience and effectiveness of thread lifts that help rejuvenate and tighten skin on the face and throat.

What is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a non-surgical procedure using dissolvable thread material to lift sagging skin and wrinkles on areas of the face and neck

It provides an immediate lifting of sagging skin. During the lifting process, this treatment helps to stimulate collagen production, tighten and rejuvenate the skin, and cause overall facial slimming.

How long does the Thread Lift procedure take?

The thread lift procedure takes about 1 hour and results can be seen instantly. Due to the level of swelling and bruising, the best outcome will be visible in 1-2 weeks time.

How long does a Thread Lift last?

A thread lift usually lasts from 12-36 months depending on the area treated, the number of threads used, the condition of the skin and lifestyle factors. 

Is this cosmetic procedure right for you?

    • Sagging cheeks, the mild to moderate sagging caused by the ageing process

    • Jowls, caused by age and gravity

2. If you are looking for a long lasting and less invasive alternative to the surgery.

Thread Lift Overview


Thread lift is considered a low-risk procedure with minimal recovery time, but side effects of redness, bruising, and swelling do occur.


A thread lift can be performed in about one hour and if you want to, you can go right back to work afterwards.


The cost of a thread lift depends on the number of threads used. Your initial consultation will be complementary. 

Our standard treatment uses 8 threads in total (4 each side) and the average cost is around $2,500.


Thread lifts are ideal for patients in their middle age who would like to achieve a natural looking lift without surgery. They are not a permanent treatment and last up to 3 years.

The ideal patient has mild to moderate skin laxity.  We don’t recommend thread lifts to patients with severe skin laxity as they are more suitable for facelift surgery.
