Why You Should Consider A Thread Lift

By: Dr. Hyemin Pomerantz


Have you started to show signs of aging? Do you have sagging skin but don’t want to undergo a surgical facelift? If so, you might want to consider noninvasive thread lift treatments to help give you a younger and refreshed appearance.

If you are wondering if a thread lift is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Hyemin Pomerantz at VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Wellesley, MA. She will meet with you to answer questions and help determine if it is the right treatment to help meet your needs.

All about a thread lift

A thread lift can effectively firm sagging skin without surgery. It can smooth away fine lines, hanging skin, and creases.

Dr. Pomerantz uses polydioxanone threads (PDO collagen threats), which are a form of durable synthetic monofilament threads. During a thread lift, we will thread the medical-grade sutures through the epidermis to promote the body’s natural production of collagen. The threads raise sagging skin and help smooth away laugh lines.

Many people call a thread lift a ‘lunchtime lift’ because it is quick and effective with no downtime, unlike a traditional surgical facelift.

The threads used during the facelift dissolve and are absorbed as time passes. However, the Meshfill, which is a two-in-one thread and filler, encourages the body to produce collagen so you can enjoy long-lasting results from the cosmetic procedure.

Dr. Pomerantz will carry out the thread lift in one of our private treatment rooms at VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Wellesley, MA.

Benefits of a noninvasive thread lift

Without a doubt, one of the main benefits of a thread lift is that it is noninvasive, unlike a traditional facelift. A thread lift can be an excellent choice if you show mild to moderate signs of aging.

Dr. Pomerantz customizes all thread lifts to help meet patients' needs by focusing on their trouble areas. You can even pair a thread lift with other cosmetic procedures for more enhanced, long-lasting results.

Usually, a thread lift is reserved for patients between 35 to 65. It can provide the following benefits:

  • Provides smooth skin
  • Noninvasive
  • Stimulates the natural production of collagen
  • Reduces the appearance of sagging skin on the face and neck
  • Smoothes away creases along the lips and mouth area
  • Provides longer-lasting results than cosmetic injectables

Thread lift procedure

A thread lift takes around an hour to perform. Our team will sit down with you to discuss what threads will be used during your procedure. They will also let you know how many threads are needed to help give you the results you seek.

During treatment, a local anesthetic is administered to the treatment area to maintain your comfort. The threads are worked through the areas of the face using a very delicate needle. The threads are then tightened to lift the skin for a younger-looking appearance. With a thread lift, no incisions are made.

A Meshfill thread lift helps to define your jawline and reduce the appearance of sagging jowls. It can also smooth away marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
