Thread Facelifts improve the effects of premature ageing by reducing loose or sagging skin on your cheeks, jawline, eyebrows or neck.
Recommended for men and women over 30 years of age.
The procedure involves the use of absorbable thread or suture placed under the skin to tighten and add volume to regain sagging areas of the skin caused by collagen degeneration.
Thread facelifts are a great way to fight the effects of gravity and collagen degeneration. They suit anyone wanting to improve their looks by enhancing and highlighting features lost to premature ageing, improving sagging or loose skin on your face and neck. They involve the use of threads or sutures made from the same materials used in surgery to close wounds.
When placed under the skin, threads can be used to tighten and volumize areas of the skin that are loose or sagging.
Thread Facelifts are less invasive and more discreet than facelift surgery. The patient is fully alert throughout the procedure, which is performed without anaesthetic. Results are noticeable almost immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is it done?
Firstly a small amount of local anaesthetic is applied to the area that is being treated. Next,absorbable collagen threads are inserted under the skin with a very fine needle. No incisions are required resulting in minimal downtime. The tiny threads lift saggy skin and redefine features on the face and neck. The threads restore youthful volume to the skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
How do I know if it's suitable for me?
The thread lift is suitable for both males and females over the age of 30 who are looking to minimise the signs of ageing on the face and neck without surgery. Anyone that is interested in receiving a thread lift will have a consultation with one of our experienced doctors before the procedure, where you will discuss your desired outcomes for the treatment and the doctor will let you know if the thread lift is suitable for you. We have a wide range of non-surgical services on offer at Geniale, so we can guarantee that if the thread lift is not the right fit we will be able to find a treatment that can help you achieve your goal.
