Face Thread Lift, Before & After Treatment – What To Expect

Thread lift

Are you interested in face thread lift before and after results? This blog details everything you need to know if you’re considering this effective anti-ageing treatment.

No one likes getting older and the visible signs of ageing tend to show up more prominently on your face than anywhere else. With so many treatment options available it can be difficult choosing between them.

The thread lift is extremely popular thanks to its natural and long-lasting results. But before you book any aesthetic treatment, you should find out what to expect so you can decide if the treatment is right for you. 

This blog is all about face thread lift before and after results and will provide all the information that you need.

What Is A Thread Lift?

Thread Lift

A thread lift procedure lifts your facial features to enhance your face and create a more youthful appearance. It reduces wrinkles and fine lines whilst promoting the production of collagen to add more volume to your skin. 

It’s a non-invasive procedure that takes just 30 minutes and works by using specialist surgical sutures to gently pull your skin tighter. 

The threads are inserted under your skin’s surface to create a lift for a smoother, tighter appearance. While the results are not permanent, they can last for up to 2 years.

You won’t feel any pain during the procedure but the treated area might feel tender immediately afterwards and you could experience some mild swelling. This will subside after 1-2 days and can be managed with mild pain relief if needed.

You will be advised about what to expect from your face thread lift before and after, and you should follow all advice given very carefully. 

You can find out all the information about face thread lift before and after advice in a previous blog here.

What Are The Benefits?

There are lots of benefits that you will notice when comparing your face thread lift before and after results.

Before the procedure, fine lines and wrinkles will be visible. Your skin may appear ‘hollowed out’ because your collagen levels are depleting and your skin may be sagging.

After a thread lift you can expect:

  • Tighter, Firmer Skin – The treatment replaces lost volume and encourages collagen production to tighten and firm your skin.
  • Reduced Sagging Of Jowls, Cheeks & Eyes – The threads tighten sagging skin tissue, this will reduce the appearance of sagging jowls, cheeks and eyes. 
  • Plumper Skin – Because the threads increase collagen production you will have plumper skin that is more radiant and youthful in appearance
  • Naturally Lifted Appearance – This non-invasive treatment provides natural results when compared with a non-thread lift before and after treatment. Other procedures can leave your face looking frozen and unnatural or are very invasive and require surgery.

Concerns That A Thread Lift Can Help With

The thread lift can be used to improve the appearance of your face, eyes and jowls. They rejuvenate your skin and are effective at lifting any sagging skin you might have.

As well as lifting your skin, it’s clear to see when comparing the effects of a face thread lift before and after, that they are great for facial rejuvenation too. 

The use of the threads provokes your body’s healing response, stimulating your body’s production of collagen in the treated areas. This is really important because of the vital role that collagen plays in the ageing process. 

Collagen helps to support growth factors that greatly influence the condition of your skin. It’s essential for your skin to be strong, voluminous and supple. 

Face Thread Lift Before & After Examples

The best way to understand the results is to see face thread lift before and after examples, and Elite Aesthetics have many!


As you can see from the face thread lift before and after pictures here, the skin is noticeably tighter and more voluminous. And the client’s skin looks brighter and rejuvenated with a healthy glow. 

The results from a thread lift will typically last up to 2 years. If you’re happy with your results then you can repeat the procedure without risk.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
