Thread Lift
or Non-surgical face lift

Thread lift at Papillon Bleu Medical Aesthetic Centre

What is Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a cosmetic procedure used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face or neck using temporary sutures or threads. These threads are typically made of materials such as polydioxanone (PDO) or polylactic acid (PLA). During the procedure, the threads are inserted under the skin and then pulled tight to lift and reposition the skin.

Thread lifts are considered less invasive than traditional facelift surgery and can be performed under local anesthesia. They can help improve the appearance of sagging cheeks, jowls, or brows, and can also stimulate collagen production, which may lead to further improvement in skin tightness and texture over time.

Results from a thread lift are temporary, typically lasting around 1-2 years, as the threads gradually dissolve and the skin's natural aging process continues. It's important to consult with a qualified and experienced aesthetic physician to determine if a thread lift is the right option for your desired outcome.

Experience a rejuvenated, youthful appearance with our non-surgical thread lift! This minimally invasive procedure lifts and tightens sagging skin, providing instant and natural-looking results.

  • What to expect after dermal fillers?
    After receiving dermal fillers, you can expect some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, which typically subsides within a few days. Results are usually visible immediately but may improve over the following weeks as any initial swelling resolves. It's important to avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and alcohol consumption for the first 24-48 hours post-treatment. Additionally, follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your provider, and attend any recommended follow-up appointments for optimal results.
  • Do dermal fillers hurt?
    At Papillon Bleu, we prioritize patient comfort and satisfaction by employing topical numbing agents and utilizing cannulas for select filler treatments. These measures ensure a smooth and comfortable experience, minimizing any discomfort for our patients
  • Are dermal fillers permanent?
    Dermal fillers offer temporary but enduring skin volumization. To sustain your results, follow-up appointments are necessary, typically ranging from every 4 to 18 months based on the filler brand and formulation. Our physician will inform you when it is needed to come back again for further administration of HA fillers. Certain fillers may stimulate collagen production, extending results for up to a year or longer.
  • Can I get dermal fillers and botox at the same time?
    Yes! Combining Botox with your injectable regimen offers dual benefits for anti-aging. Botox, a neuromodulator, temporarily inhibits specific muscle movements in the upper face, effectively smoothing lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions. By relaxing these muscles, Botox ensures smoother skin in areas such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and glabellar lines. Both Botox and dermal fillers can be administered during the same appointment, subject to your suitability for each treatment.
  • When will I see the results from dermal fillers?
    The effects of your filler treatment become immediately visible, rendering your skin smoother, lips fuller, and cheeks plumper. With injectables, there's no downtime, allowing you to promptly return to your regular activities following your dermal filler session at Papillon Bleu Aesthetics. However, please avoid saunas and hot tubs for the first couple of days to ensure optimal results.
  • What are dermal fillers made of?
    Papillon Bleu, we take pride in using Teoxane fillers, which are crafted primarily from cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural component of the skin. Teoxane employs its patented RHA® (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) technology to fortify the filler's durability and longevity within the skin. These fillers may also incorporate lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to ensure a more comfortable injection experience.
