How Does A Thread Lift Tighten Loose Facial Skin?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


There’s no doubt that facelift surgery remains the most effective solution for reversing moderate to severe signs of facial aging. For men and women who may not be ready, willing, or able to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery, however, nonsurgical thread lifting can be a fantastic alternative. Renowned board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi and the acclaimed team at VIP Plastic Surgery are proud to offer the revolutionary thread lift treatment in Las Vegas, NV for patients seeking a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation treatment. Discover the benefits of thread lifting here, and find out whether the procedure may be right for you.

How to tighten loose facial skin

As we age, most of us will begin to notice fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin. While sun exposure, gravity, smoking, and other factors contribute to these frustrating signs of aging, it is the body’s natural loss of collagen and elastin that triggers pronounced skin laxity with time. Generally speaking, facelift surgery is undoubtedly the best way to tighten loose facial skin. However, many men and women desire a less invasive and more convenient alternative to facelift surgery. For these patients, a thread lift procedure may be an appropriate option.

What is a thread facelift?

Thread lifting is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure that physically lifts and tightens loose skin with dissolvable threads for a firmer, fresher, more youthful appearance. Common treatment areas for thread lift include:

  • Brow
  • Cheeks
  • Around the eyes
  • Around the mouth
  • Jowls
  • Neck

During a Las Vegas thread lift treatment, which can be performed in the office in about 30 – 45 minutes, Dr. Khorsandi will carefully insert fine, surgical-grade threads into targeted areas of the face using a hollow needle. The threads not only work to lift the skin, but they also promote the production of new, healthy collagen fibers for healthier, firmer, more supple skin in the long term. Following the procedure, patients are able to resume the majority of their normal activities within 1 – 2 days with minimal bruising, swelling, and discomfort.

How long does a thread lift last?

One of the most compelling benefits of a thread lift procedure is that patients can typically enjoy their striking new look for up to 1 – 3 years before a repeat treatment may be needed. Furthermore, the collagen-boosting effects of the threads used in thread lifting mean patients will continue to see their results improve over time.

Who qualifies for thread lift?

Patients considering thread lifting in Las Vegas should be:

  • In good overall health
  • Nonsmokers
  • Have mild to moderate loose skin on the face and/or neck
  • Desire a nonsurgical alternative to facelift

During your initial consultation, Dr. Khorsandi will carefully examine your face, assess your degree of skin laxity, discuss your concerns and desired outcome, and determine whether thread lifting may be right for you. In many cases, thread lift can be combined with additional treatments, such as injectable dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, for a more complete and dramatic transformation.

Thread lift in Las Vegas can turn back the clock without incisions, scars, or a lengthy recovery
