NON-SURGICAL AND MINIMALLY INVASIVE
procedure that uses special suture threads to “lift up”
sagging skin on the neck and face
ThreadLift is primarily used to address sagging skin and loss of skin elasticity in the face and neck. Laser Light currently uses this procedure to lift sagging cheeks, reduce the appearance of jowls, tighten the forehead, and lift the eyebrows.

The idea behind ThreadLift is similar to a facelift, but without the surgical removal of excess skin or surgical repositioning of the tissues beneath.
During treatment, we will make small puncture incisions at the treatment site. Then, small PDO threads will be inserted under the skin by using a very thin cannula.
The number of threads will depend on the specific problem being treated. For example, in order to lift sagging skin around the cheeks and jaw, your provider may utilize three, or even more, threads on each side. One of the benefits of using more threads is that they can cover a larger area, providing a lifting effect that is more dispersed and looks more natural.
After the desired amount of tightening has been achieved, the protruding ends of the threads are clipped off. The threads underneath the skin are completely invisible.
Yes! What makes ThreadLift so effective is the presence of tiny barbs that protrude along the entire length of thread. When the thread is pulled, the soft barbs latch onto the tissues and skin, to pull on the entire area. Because no single point sustains the brunt of the pulling, the resulting lift is very uniform, and the treatment area looks smooth and natural.
Further, because the PDO threads are very soft, no one will be able to feel them under your skin.
No, the procedure is very comfortable and typically don’t feel any discomfort due to the local anesthetic. Further, due to the decreased trauma to skin and underlying tissues, the recovery from this treatment is much more comfortable than from a surgical face lift.
