Thread Lift

A thread lift is a well established, non-surgical lifting treatment that uses specially developed threads and requires no cutting. The threads create an invisible supporting framework under the skin, which lastingly tightens and smoothes the skin. Those who undergo treatment can immediately resume their daily routines; results are already visible immediately after treatment and after 3 to 4 weeks. The results then last for 8 to 10 years.

How does a facelift using threads work?

A thread lift is a gentle procedure that does not involve any cutting or surgery. During the process, under a small local anesthetic, a micro-needle is used to insert the threads into the skin tissue. After the needle is removed, the thread remains in the tissue and forms a mesh of collagen and elastic tissue. Different threads are used depending on the area, such as threads with small barbs or spirals. This means that the therapy can be optimized and customized for the individual. Afterward, the skin is gently massaged and cooled. Initial effects are instantly visible. There are virtually no side effects. After this outpatient procedure, you are immediately presentable - no scars, no artificial appearance.
