With Threads

Modern Face Lifting

It is a simple, modern, and pain-free lifting method, ideal for the treatment of mild and more advanced cases, both for men and women of all ages. Depending on the patient’s personal needs and the result we want to achieve, the treatment can be performed using PDO, COG or APTOS Threads.

In Cosmetic Derma Medicine the treatment is performed by exclusively using CE-Certified Threads, which proves their safety for medical use and reduces to the minimum the possibility of any complications.

Before – After Results

The results of Face Lift with COG Threads are immediately shown after their application, while in the case of PDO Threads, the results gradually improve over time.

In case of APTOS Threads application, the results are immediately visible as they achieve immediate skin lifting.

In all of the aforementioned cases, the improvement of skin appearance and texture continue to improve for the next 3 months, as new collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin are produced. The effect of Facial Thread Lift can last up to 2 years.

For even better and longer results, the treatment can be combined with Facial Therapy with autologous growth factors as well as with CO2 Fractional Laser, Neurotoxin and Hyaluronic Acid Treatment.

Areas of Application

Thread Facelift can target the entire face or certain areas of facial and body skin, including:

  • Face – Around the eyes
  • Lips – Cheeks
  • Neck – Chest – Arms
  • Abdomen – Buttocks – Thighs

Facial Thread Lift

How is Face Lift with PDO Threads applied?

The procedure is pretty simple and the use of local anesthetic cream is optional. The specialized Doctor inserts the ultra-thin bio-absorbable PDO Threads horizontally or vertically (depending on the needs of the problematic area) with the help of a very thin needle, and creates a grid that holds the relaxed skin and improves skin texture.

The threads are fully absorbable and the number to be used depends on the needs of each area.

The minor injuries that occur by the injection of threads stimulate local production of collagen and hyaluronic acid and that’s why the results are getting better and better over time.

How is Face Lift with COG Threads applied?

The process of inserting the threads is simple and the application of a local anesthetic cream is optional. The specialized doctor inserts the serrated COG Threads, also known as “Anchor Threads”, along a selected trajectory (predetermined according to the needs of the problem area) and then the threads are stretched, causing immediately visible straightening / lifting.

The threads are fully absorbable and the number to be used depends on the needs of each area.

The minor injury caused by the threads stimulates the local production of new Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid and for this reason the results of the method increase over time.

How is Face Lift with APTOS Threads applied?

APTOS Facial Threads are inserted one by one, individually and are suitable for direct straightening only on the face (cheeks, oval of the face, cheekbones and forehead). APTOS Threads offer immediate lifting results, due to the special technology of 3D hooks that they have.

Is Facial Thread Lift a painful procedure?

Before applying the PDO threads, an anesthetic cream is used which makes the treatment practically painless and very well tolerated.

In the case of COG and APTOS threads, injectable local anesthesia is applied, making the process painless.

Are threads safe?

The bio-absorbable injectable threads of Polydioxanone, in addition to the impressive results they give to Cosmetic Dermatology, find use in a number of other Medical Processes in the Field of Cardiac Surgery and Ophthalmology.

At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, as a specialized clinic for Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, Facial Threads used for face lifting have “CE Certification” that proves their safety for medical use, making them even safer and minimizing the occurrence of complications.

Are there any complications associated with Thread Face Lift?

Facial Threads that are used for thread lifting have “CE Certification” which proves their safety for medical use, making them even safer and minimizing the chances of complications.

After the treatment, a slight erythema (redness) may appear locally in the area of application, which resolves on its own after a few hours.

What is the difference between Thread Lift and Surgical Lifting?

Thread lifting is a painless and minimally-invasive procedure, which does not require general anesthesia, which is the case with traditional surgical lifting. It leaves no permanent scars and marks and the patient can return immediately to his/her daily activities and work.

Why choose Facial Thread Lift?

The main advantages of the treatment are the following:

  • It is a bloodless, painless, minimally invasive method
  • Its application does not require incisions and therefore does not leave permanent scars and marks.
  • The patient avoids the hassle of a surgical lifting, which requires general anesthesia and multi-day recovery.
  • No recovery time is required and so the patient can return immediately to his/her daily activities.
  • The material is absorbed within 6-8 months and so no complications are observed.
  • The effect of Facial Thread Lift is completely natural.
  • Thanks to the enhancement of the natural production of Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid, the duration of the results is significantly prolonged and can often reach 2 years.
