How do thread lifts work?

A thread lift is a non-invasive, anti-aging procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas.

Key features:

1. Get immediate results; threads cause slight lifting of the skin by pulling against gravity

2. The threads cause controlled stimulation of collagen in the dermis resulting in gradual firming.

For more information visit our Thread Lifts FAQs page.


You will probably see some initial firming and lifting right after your procedure, As your body begins to naturally generate collagen, your tightened, lifted outcomes should continue to improve for the next few months. Best results from a thread lift last about a year or more.

Thread lifts were my secret to looking 10 years younger

When I first heard about thread lifts as an alternative to surgery, I immediately wanted to know more. The staff at Youtherapy carefully explained what it could do for me, and I knew I needed to try it. Over the weeks that followed I started noticing a huge difference and now the results are amazing!

What kinds of thread lifts are available at Youtherapy?

Polydioxanone, or PDO threads, are a type of medical-grade thread often used in surgical procedures. But unlike other surgical threads, polydioxanone is very strong in addition to being biodegradable. It safely dissolves into the patient’s body within a few months. As the material gradually disintegrates, it also triggers the body’s natural healing process. The body enhances collagen production around the threads, which act as scaffolding for further skin cell regeneration. In the long run, PDO threads provide patients with an anti-aging solution that continues to reduce the appearance of aging and improves over time.

NovaThreads are fully dissolvable, and that’s what makes it a critical feature that allows Dr. Greenberg to perform this non-surgical facelift procedure. NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. The PDO thread remains under the skin. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it — a “controlled healing” that’s happening right underneath the skin. Human skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NovaThreads, we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally! Nova Threads can be used almost anywhere on the body but are particularly effective on the neck and jawline.

What are the benefits of thread lifts?
  • Uniquely tailored and customized to meet each patient’s needs
  • FDA approved for safety; threads are gradually absorbed by the body
  • Immediate results following procedure
  • Keep skin looking plumper and more youthful
  • Can be combined with other anti-aging procedures, such as dermal fillers
