A thread lift is a minimally invasive method that elevates drooping and mature skin, encouraging the production of collagen to achieve a rejuvenated look on the face or neck. The placement of medical-grade threads under the skin by dermatologist repositions the skin, while the threads activate the body's natural healing process to promote collagen synthesis. There are various thread types and lengths available.
Compared to a facelift, a thread lift is a gentle alternative that produces subtle modifications. Due to its speedy procedure and minimal recovery period, it is often referred to as a "lunchtime facelift".


Threads used in thread lift procedures are made of a variety of materials, including absorbable materials like polylactic acid (PLA), polydioxanone (PDO), and glycolide/lactide (PLGA). These materials are biocompatible and dissolve over time within the body.
PDO threads have been around the longest of the three .They’re made from a colourless polyester that breaks down in your body after about 6 months.
The presence of these sutures in your skin triggers cells in your body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives your skin its structure and elasticity. Loss of collagen is one of the main causes of aging skin.

PDO threads can be further divided into three categories:

  • PDO mono threads: Smooth sutures that help rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen production.
  • PDO cog threads: These threads have barbs that latch into your skin like small fishhooks, to provide support and lift parts of your face.
  • PDO screw threads: Made up of one or two intertwined threads, these are used to help restore volume to sunken parts of your skin.

We at La Derma only use USFDA Approved threads. They are completely safe and effective.


There are several types of thread lifts, including:

  • Cat or fox eye thread lift: This involves lifting the eyebrows toward the temples to give your eyes a catlike look.
  • Eyebrow thread lift: A dermatologist lifts sagging or furrowed eyebrows and tightens your skin.
  • Nose thread lift: A dermatologist injects threads to lift, straighten or slim your nose. In some cases, they may combine a nose thread lift with dermal fillers.
  • Neck thread lift: This procedure lifts the loose skin on your neck or smooths neck lines.
  • Jawline Thread or Chin Thread: To achieve a sharp jawline and reduce double chin.
  • Breast Lift: A dermatologist uses threads to lift sagging breasts without need for a surgery.
  • Butt Lift: It is used to correct sagging in the hip area and achieve desired shape.
