Thread Lifting (Minimally Invasive Thread Facelift) – Laguna Beach, CA*

36 Procedures ( View All )


If you want to revive the youthful appearance of your skin without the time and expense of surgery, but longer-lasting results than nonsurgical treatments, consider thread lifting for the face and neck. At ZO Skin Centre® in Orange County, we offer thread lifting, a minimally invasive technique that mimics the effects of a surgical facelift. Using polydioxanone (PDO) thread, the same absorbable thread that has been used in medicine for over 20 years, this minimally invasive procedure lifts and tightens the face and neck. The PDO thread is specially designed to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, so the health of the skin is improved over time. If you want to learn more about thread lifting or our other anti-aging treatments, schedule a consultation at ZO Skin Centre® in Laguna Beach or Newport Beach.

Best Candidates

A thread lift may help you if you have moderate to severe signs of aging, but you would rather avoid plastic surgery. You may have tried nonsurgical treatments, like injectable wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, and laser facials, but you want longer-lasting results. A thread lift is designed to create natural-looking results that correct many concerns, including:

Double chin


Lines and wrinkles

Sagging cheeks or eyebrows

Skin folds and furrows

What to expect

After a consultation to determine that a thread lift is best for your needs and goals, a customized treatment plan will be created and your thread lift will be scheduled. On the day of your treatment, you will relax in one of our treatment rooms as a local anesthetic is injected into the areas of your face that will be addressed. After the anesthesia is active, your ZO® skin care professional will carefully insert the PDO threads. The threads will be attached to the skin tissue and then raised until the desired effect is achieved. The threads will be knotted and cut so they can blend as the skin heals. Patients may have minor redness or bruising that will resolve on its own in 1 – 2 weeks. Since the process is minimally invasive, you should not see any scarring once the skin has healed. Over time, the threads will slowly break down, and then safely absorbed and eliminated by the body. The results of a thread lift will vary in each patient, but most patients see improvement for 2 – 3 years. You should talk to your skin care professional about ZO® skin treatments and products that will help to extend your results.
