AO Thread Lift
A thread facelift is a convenient, less invasive alternative to traditional facelifts, designed for people experiencing early signs of aging, such as minor facial sagging. This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just one or two hours, often without anesthesia.
During a thread facelift, the cosmetic surgeon inserts thin threads into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face.
Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can approve the look of their thread lift while the surgeon works.
Once the threads are knotted, they become hidden within the skin itself, and any scarring that results will be virtually invisible.
Why Thread Lift?
Thread lift is a non-surgical procedure and is an alternative option for individuals who do not want or are concerned about surgery.
The results are long term and may last for up to 1-2 years after the procedure is complete.
In addition, the effect of lifting and firming caused by the thread lift will be noticeable almost immediately.
No downtime is necessary and you may return to your regular routine after your appointment.

How is it done?
Prior to the thread lift, an anaesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area to numb the skin and minimise any pain or discomfort. Threads will be inserted in the specified area and will take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete, depending on the area treated. You will experience a small, prickling sensation similar to acupuncture needling, but it is not painful.
Threads may vary in length and thickness, subject to the treatment area. Shorter threads are generally used to treat fine lines in and around the eye area, while longer threads can fix and lift the neck and jawlines. Thicker threads may also be used as an alternative to Botox, and inserted into the muscles of the forehead.
Your doctor will advise you on treatments for specific areas in order for you to get the best results.
