Threads or Thread Lifts

The four types of threads

  1. Suspension sutures – These types of threads lift hanging skin to create a youthful look, in a similar way to a facelift. They typically last for 18 months before being absorbed by the body. However, the effects of these threads remain for much longer than that.
  2. Bared threads and anchor threads – These types of threads lift and tighten the skin. Barbed threads are thinner than anchor threads, which is why they are used for subtle lifting whereas anchor threads are used for treating specific problem areas that require extra attention. They last for 6 to 9 months.
  3. Monofilaments – Monofilaments neither lift nor tighten the skin, but they strengthen the skin instead. By stimulating the skin to produce collagen, these threads improve the skin’s appearance. They typically dissolve within 6 months and require more replacements than other types of threads.
  4. Specialty threads – Specialty threads are used in specific cases, such as for non-surgical nose jobs, or to soften deep lines and wrinkles.
