Thread Lift

The first thread lifting system approved by the FDA and Health Canada.  A very safe non-surgical procedure that is done by a fully trained experienced physician to help lift sagging skin and produce new collagen in the face and neck. The suture thread system can be done in about 1 hr and will give immediate lifting results on sagging skin to rejuvenate the face. The threads are produced in the USA and subject to rigorous sanitary and quality controlled conditions. Results will last between 18-24 months. This procedure also activates your natural collagen production to boost volume overtime for up to 2 years. Dr. Seit at Rejuuv has been trained in threads and was picked as one of 10 Physicians in Canada to learn and help train other physicians in 2018. Dr. Seit has extensive experience and expertise with all the different thread lifting techniques.

Thread Lift is offered in our Toronto, Markham and North York medi spa.

Why thread lift?

Thread lift procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery. Thread lifts claim to tighten your skin by inserting medical-grade thread material into your face and then “pulling” your skin up by tightening the thread.

Thread Lift is offered in our Markham, Toronto, and North York location.

how does thread lift work?

Here’s a step-by-step guide outlining exactly what happens during a thread lift procedure:

  • Your practitioner identifies the areas of sagging skin and marks out where each thread will be placed.
  • Local anaesthetic is applied to the treatment areas to make it a comfortable, pain-free experience.
  • Your practitioner inserts PDO (Polydioxanone) threads underneath your skin using a cannula. These threads are very fine and have small, cone-like structures running along their length.
  • The threads are shaped and moulded into place before being pulled back and tightened. The cone-like structures latch onto skin tissue and re-suspend sagging areas.
  • The threads are then trimmed to ensure they’re secure and invisible inside the skin.

A thread lift procedure usually takes between 30 and 45 mins. There’s little to no downtime, meaning you can return to work and your daily activities right away. There are also minimal side effects involved, aside from mild tenderness, swelling and bruising which should subside after a day or two.

Who is Thread lift suitable for?

The typical candidate for a thread lift is in their late 30s to early 50s. A person who is generally in good health and is just starting to notice the signs of aging may benefit the most from the subtle impact of a thread lift.

Those who can’t have a surgical facelift because of medical conditions that make general anesthesia risky may consider a thread lift as a safer alternative.

What to expect?

  • Some visible swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the treatment site dissipating within 24-48 hours
  • You will notice an immediate lift
