Thread lift in Iran: All you need to know
Thread lift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can reduce the signs of aging and give you a more youthful skin on your face, neck and other parts of your body. It can serve as a less invasive alternative to skin lift surgeries with almost similar results.
What is thread lift?
Thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to reduce the signs of aging. This procedure can help you get rid of mildly loose skin on your face and neck without cutting your skin.
Thread lift involves inserting special threads into the skin and pulling them to get firmer skin. The threads will pull the skin cells together, resulting in more natural youthful looks. What is even more interesting is that the results are immediate.
How thread lift works
At first, the mechanical effect that appears after pulling the thread will result in immediate tightening of the skin. Afterward, the inserted thread will promote the skin into the production of more collagen.
Since collagen makes the skin fuller and more elastic, the threads will continue to improve the skin as time passes until they finally dissolve in the skin. After thread lift, the skin will be firmer and fuller, and the wrinkles and fine lines will be gone or less noticeable.
How is thread lift procedure done?
Even though the procedure may change a bit depending on the targeted area, the main techniques are similar. Thread lift steps are as follows:
- Sterilization: after you enter the room, your skin will be sterilized with some alcohol.
- Anesthesia: Thread lift is performed under local anesthesia. The doctor will apply topical anesthetic to your skin to prepare it for the procedure.
- Thread Insertion: The doctor will insert the threads into your skin using thin needles. This step will usually take from 30 to 45 minutes.
- Needle removal: Now, the doctor will remove the needle and pull the threads. You are likely to feel some pressure as the doctor pulls the threads.
After that, the procedure will be over. There might be some swelling or bruising after the procedure. You will immediately notice a tighter, smoother, and more young-looking skin.
What is thread lift used for?
Thread lift procedure is used to treat several conditions that are associated with aging, including the following.
Thread lift for eyes

Thread lift for double chin and jawline

Thread lift for cheeks

If you want fuller cheeks, you can have dermal filler injections in the cheeks along with thread lift treatment.
Thread lift for neck

Thread lift for the forehead

Thread lift complications and side effects
Every procedure, no matter how safe and easy it is, comes with some possible complications and side effects. Thread lift side effects are not common but they are possible. Thread lift side effects may include the following:
The side effects are usually temporary and go away after few days. Thread lift dimpling is one of the possible complications, but they tend to settle after few weeks along with any unevenness.
Thread lift healing

Thread lift aftercare
As with every other cosmetic procedure, it is vital to take good care of the skin. Following thread lift aftercare instructions is necessary to maintain the best results for more extended period of time. Thread lift aftercare tips may include:
- Applying a good sunscreen on your skin when you go out and avoid direct sun exposure.
- Washing the treated area very gently.
- Not rubbing the treated area for the next 2 weeks.
- Refraining from drinking alcohol for the following week at least.
- Taking OTC painkillers when you feel pain.
- Staying away from sports for at least 7 days.
- Keeping away from steam and high and low temperatures.
- Avoiding vitamins and other supplements that contain vitamins C, A & E for the next week after the procedure.
- Going to your follow-up appointment 7 days after the procedure.
Thread lift vs. filler
Both fillers and thread lift can be used to treat aging signs. When you have mild wrinkles and skin sagging, thread lift can be a good choice for you. Thread lift will give you a natural young look.
Dermal fillers can be used for older patients who have deeper wrinkles or for patients who want to have faster results.
Thread lift vs. Botox
Unlike thread lift, Botox does not help to produce collagen and tighten the skin. Botox will paralyze the skin preventing the further development of dynamic wrinkles. If treating dynamic wrinkles is your goal, then you will need Botox instead of thread lift.
