Sagging skin can make you look older than you are and give off the impression that you’re tired, sad or angry. A thread lift can offer similar results to eyelid surgery, brow lift and facelift without the downtime and anesthesia risks. These non-surgical alternatives use strategically placed sutures to provide a visible lift to the skin’s tissues, restoring a younger appearance.

How Can Thread Lifts Help Me?
A thread lift subtly lifts the skin instead of surgically removing the loose tissue like a facelift or brow lift. Thread lifts use stitches made with specific material to pull the skin slightly for a tighter appearance. Once the sutures are in place, they offer secondary benefits by pushing your body to “heal” the area by creating more collagen.
Collagen is a protein found in abundance in your tissues when you are young, but you start to produce less of the vital compound starting as early as your 20s. The “fountain of youth” protein keeps your skin supple, voluminous and strong. A thread lift harnesses the growth factors of collagen. The body directs a surge of collagen to the area where the sutures are located for an infusion that improves the structural integrity of your skin and reduces laxity by restoring volume for ongoing rejuvenation.
Dr. Horvath offers thread lifts for several areas that have lost volume and have loose skin, including:
- Eye area (Foxy eye thread lift)
- Facial contours (Silhouette lift)
Thread lifts are often called a “lunchtime lift” because of the quick procedure and zero downtime required afterward. Candidates should have mild to moderate wrinkles with loose skin and be in good overall health. These non-surgical options can address jowling, sagging eyebrows, prematurely loose neck skin and more.
Thread lifts can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane and PRP treatments.
