What is a Thread Lift?
At Ageless Aesthetics, in Robins and Macon, GA, board-certified aesthetic physician Dr. Anayo Umerah offers PDO and Silhouette InstaLift® thread lifts. This treatment is as effective as a surgical facelift without the downtime, expense, and worry that often accompanies surgery. PDO and Silhouette Instalift threads are often used to address mild to moderate signs of aging. By inserting surgical-grade threads through areas of your skin that have become lax or hollow and gently pulling the threads, we can create a lifted look. Not only do the threads help to lift the skin, but they also encourage collagen and elastin growth, which are necessary for the natural healing and strengthening of the skin. In time, the threads dissolve into the body and leave the face looking lifted and youthful-looking. For more information, contact Dr. Umerah at either of our Ageless Aesthetics locations to schedule a consultation.

Benefits of Silhouette Instalift
Silhouette InstaLift is the only thread procedure of its kind to use Micro-Suspension Technology™ for immediate and long-lasting results. Additionally, it is the only absorbable suture that is FDA-cleared for cosmetic facial treatments. This makes it an ideal treatment for those who are sick of dermal fillers but aren't ready for or candidates for a surgical facelift. InstaLift lifts and tightens the mid-face while also supplementing volume that may last up to two years.
What Can I Expect from My Thread Lift?
At Ageless Aesthetics, thread lifts can be used in a variety of ways. Twist threads are often used to add volume (similar to fillers), lift threads are used to lift the face, and smooth threads are used to address lines and wrinkles. During a one-on-one consultation, Dr. Umerah will work with you to decide which threads will help you reach your goals. At your appointment, we'll have you relax in one of our private treatment rooms while we perform your thread lift using local anesthesia to help you remain comfortable. We'll start by marking the places on your face where the threads will enter and exit, then we'll use a needle to insert the threads, and finally, we will gently pull the threads to create the lifted look. You may have some soreness and redness after your appointment, which could take a week or two to heal. If you received the lift threads, you'll likely notice results immediately; however, it can take between 2 – 3 months to fully notice the results from the smooth or twisted threads. You'll notice smoother, refreshed, and youthful-looking skin for a year or longer.
Thread Lift FAQ
Does getting a thread lift hurt?
No, most patients do not find a thread lift procedure painful or uncomfortable. Before she begins, Dr. Umerah will completely numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. After a thread lift, some patients may experience mild soreness, redness, and swelling, but this typically subsides in 7 – 14 days.
Are thread lifts safe?
While a thread lift can have side effects like skin texture changes, stiffness, or irritation, these are typically rare. The FDA approved both the Silhouette Instalift and PDO thread lift as safe and effective treatments.
How long does it take to get a thread lift?
Thread lifts are quick and easy, often able to be completed in under an hour.
When will I see results from my thread lift?
Some patients can see results almost immediately after their treatment. However, on average, most patients will see increasingly noticeable improvements over 2 – 3 months until optimal results are achieved.
How long do the results of a thread lift last?
How long your results of a thread lift last depend on a variety of factors, including skin condition, age, health, and lifestyle. Generally, the results of a thread lift can last about 12 – 18 months before a maintenance procedure may be recommended.
