Facelift with collagen thread is a rejuvenating lifting therapy favored by its high safety and effectiveness in increasing collagen production, visibly rejuvenating the skin. Many ladies and men would like to have smooth and youthful skin but are still wondering whether they should lift the face with thread or not, and they do not know which cosmetic thread is right to treat it. Is it suitable, is it harmful, and how much does it cost? All will be answered below.
1. What is thread facelift?
Thread facelift (also known as collagen facelift) is a procedure that inserts specialized medical threads into the dermis layer of the skin. This is the layer that contains elastin and collagen, which is the area where wrinkles and sagging of the skin form. Instead of surgical removal of sagging skin, collagen thread or bio-threads will be used to create lifting force to stretch the skin, and at the same time stimulate the body’s self-healing response to cause the body to produce collagen in the treatment areas. Therefore, facelift with biological thread helps to fill wrinkles and repel signs of aging.
The small spikes along the sides of the thread will help it stay fixed in the skin in the direction of pulling up. Then, the thread will stimulate the body to strongly produce new collagen by causing an inflammatory reaction on the young fibroblasts. Then, the generated collagen will follow the spikes on the thread to gradually support the sagging tissue and stretch the sagging skin to create a smooth, youthful skin.
Collagen dramatically affects the condition of our skin. In addition to being used for wound healing, collagen also helps keep skin healthy, plump, and supple. If there is less collagen, sagging skin and wrinkles will appear. Based on the principle of stimulating the production of collagen under the skin, the collagen thread lift method helps to rejuvenate the skin continuously and affects the deep tissues to make the skin firmer.
2. Who should use thread facelift?
Those who are suitable for thread facelift therapy include:
- Young people who have sagging skin on the cheeks and forehead due to muscle weakness or various reasons.
- Women between the ages of 35 and 45, when the skin has many obvious changes due to aging.
- Those with older ages should use thread facelift therapy in combination with lifting surgery for the most effective results.
There are many other factors to evaluate whether a person is suitable for thread facelift therapy: conditions such as comorbidities, such as hemophilia, or whether the patient’s skin is infected or unwell or not.

5. Notes when choosing a place for thread facelift
The rate of facial nerve damage is 0.7 – 0.9%. Therefore, the doctor’s role is very important in performing the minor surgery. A good and experienced doctor will be able to control all situations when performing a facelift. He or she can manipulate the thread deep into the dermis layer most accurately to help limit the level of invasiveness. Also, the doctor will avoid touching surrounding sensitive areas or facial nerves.
