How Much is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a non-invasive way to lift and firm the skin of your neck, cheeks, and jawline. It's an option for people who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but may not be ready to commit to a surgical facelift. The cost of a thread lift depends on how many sutures you need, and the number of areas you plan to treat.

A numbing cream is applied before the procedure to prevent discomfort, and local anesthesia is often used to numb specific areas of the face. The doctor then creates a small hole in the skin and inserts the threads. The barbs on the threads act like little fish hooks that attach to the connective tissue. The threads are pulled in a certain direction to lift the area of the skin, which also triggers collagen production. The results of a thread lift can be visible immediately, and will continue to improve over the weeks and months following treatment as the skin continues to produce new collagen.

The threads are made from a flexible, absorbable medical thread called polydioxanone (PDO) or poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA). At Water’s Edge Dermatology, we use FDA-cleared, barbed PDO threads. The doctor can use different types of threads, including smooth, twisted or barbed, to achieve your desired result.

Good candidates for a thread lift are experiencing early signs of aging, such as droopiness in the brow, cheeks and jowls or sagging skin of the neck. They don't want to undergo cosmetic surgery or have a traditional facelift, and they don't have certain conditions that would make a facelift dangerous.
