Thread lift - what is it?

Thread lifting with self-dissolving Silhouette Soft®-threads

A thread lift is a minimally invasive skin tightening and contouring procedure in which special threads are inserted under the skin to lift and tighten the tissue.

The advantages of a thread lift are manifold. Firstly, it is a non-surgical method that is less invasive than traditional facelifts. It requires no incisions or scarring and therefore has less downtime. Secondly, the results are immediately visible as the skin is lifted instantly. Thirdly, the threads stimulate collagen production, which leads to a long-term improvement in skin tightening. Fourthly, thread lifting can reduce wrinkles, tighten sagging skin and define facial contours, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

In summary, thread lifting offers a quick, effective and safe way to improve the appearance of the skin without long downtime or scarring. It is a popular option for people who want a more youthful appearance without having to undergo invasive surgery.


Silhouette Soft®-threads

Silhouette Soft is a special type of thread used in thread lifting. These threads are made of poly-lactic acid (PLLA) and have small cones or barbs that are inserted into the skin.

The PLLA material is biocompatible and is broken down by the body over time. It also stimulates collagen production, resulting in improved skin tightening and firmness. The cones or barbs on the Silhouette Soft threads allow the tissue to be lifted and tightened while providing a firm hold.

Silhouette Soft threads are used to treat sagging skin in the face and neck area. They can reduce wrinkles, define contours and give a more youthful appearance.


A thorough pre-treatment consultation is recommended to discuss your individual needs and determine the best course of action.

Who is a thread lift suitable for?

A thread lift is suitable for people who have mild to moderate signs of sagging skin on the face or body. It can be applied to a variety of age groups, however most candidates are in their 30s to 60s. A thread lift can help improve the appearance of sagging jowls, drooping jawlines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, eyebrow drooping and neck sagging.

It is important to note that not everyone is suitable for a thread lift. Those with severe skin laxity or volume loss may be able to achieve better results with other treatments. An individual consultation at our practice is crucial to determine if a thread lift is the right option for you.

Treatment procedure
  • Please do not wear make-up on the day of treatment!
  • The treatment area is cleaned and disinfected.
    If necessary, a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to minimize any discomfort during the treatment.
  • The insertion points for the stitches are marked according to the desired lifting effect.
  • The threads are inserted into the skin with a fine needle and placed along the marked lines.
    The threads have small cones, barbs or loops that anchor themselves in the tissue and thus create an immediate lifting effect.
  • After all the stitches have been placed, they are carefully tightened to lift and tighten the tissue.
    Cut off the excess thread ends.
  • The treatment usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of stitches placed and the treatment area.
  • There may be slight swelling, redness or bruising after the treatment, but this usually subsides within a few days.
  • The results are immediately visible and continue to improve over time as the threads stimulate collagen production. The body needs to be given some time to slowly lift the skin.
Rules of conduct
  • Avoid any kind of pressure or friction on the treated area for the first 24 to 48 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid intense physical activity, strenuous exercise and sauna visits for a few days after the treatment.
  • Avoid overexposure to the sun and use a broad spectrum sunscreen with a high sun protection factor to protect the skin from UV rays.
  • Avoid facial treatments, massages or other aesthetic treatments in the treated area for at least two weeks after the treatment.
Possible risks

Thread lifting is considered a safe method. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is generally well tolerated and carries only minor risks. Compared to traditional surgical procedures, thread lifting is less invasive and does not require general anesthesia or large incisions. The use of special threads makes it possible to tighten and lift the tissue without leaving large scars. Nevertheless, it is important that the treatment is performed by an experienced professional in order to minimize possible risks and achieve optimal results. However, as with any medical procedure, individual differences and reactions can occur, which is why thorough consultation and information are essential before treatment.

Schedule a thread lift consultation today and discover the possibilities for a more youthful appearance. We are available to answer your questions and give you all the information you need. Contact us now to make an appointment and take the first step towards a refreshed appearance.

Which combination treatments are possible?

There are various combination treatments that can be performed alongside a thread lift to achieve optimal results. Some possible options are

  1. Botulinum injections: Botulinum can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, particularly in the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. It can also help to improve the effect of the thread lift by relaxing the muscles and making the result last longer.
  2. Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid can be used to compensate for volume loss and fill in deep wrinkles or sunken areas. They can be used in combination with a thread lift to achieve a more complete and youthful appearance

It is important to note that each case is individual and a thorough consultation is therefore essential to find the best treatment plan & combination options for your personal needs

Dr. Conrad was recommended to me by my best friend because I have been suffering from acne scars on my cheeks for a long time. He took his time and screened my skin. Together we decided to use professional microneedling together with a skin booster to correct the scars and the result is simply brilliant! Thank you so much again!
