Tallahassee Non-Invasive Face Lift Threading

Our Tallahassee thread face lift is one of our alternatives to traditional facelift surgery.

The goal of a thread lift is to tighten the skin via the insertion of impermanent material into the body, which is then tightened, resulting in skin that is lifted. It’s a procedure typically for the face or breasts. For the face, we can perform this technique on most areas where you might find signs of aging. We can consider thread lifts for the forehead, eyebrows, under your eyes, jaw, cheeks, and neck.

Because it is not an invasive surgical procedure, you do not require a general anesthetic. Some may consider this a safer approach than a facelift. As it does not require sedation, the cost of a thread lift should be less than a facelift, too. And on top of this, you should be looking forward to a quicker recovery time. With a traditional facelift, you’ll need to think about taking time off work. A thread lift, however, is also sometimes referred to as a lunchtime facelift. Our team can complete a non-surgical face lift threading in our Tallahassee location in under an hour.

Recovery time for a threading face lift is short. You may have some bruising for 48 hours or less, but you will be able to return to work and daily life with only a few restrictions.

To avoid accidentally dislodging the sutures, you should avoid rubbing your face for about a week. Avoid strenuous exercise, sleeping on your side, and saunas for a couple of weeks. We may also advise you not to purse your lips (such as while smoking or drinking through a straw) for several weeks.

A thread face lift in our Tallahassee office should interest anyone looking for a skin rejuvenation procedure. Our team can use the procedure to restore your natural beauty and give your skin a helping hand.

Tallahassee MINT PDO Threading

The thread in a MINT lift face lift is polydioxanone, medical-grade thread material. This is the type of thread used for suturing. Our highly trained team uses the PDO thread to “stitch” the skin and draw it tight. The PDO threading process performed in our Tallassee location is minimally invasive and the threads, used in surgeries since the 1980s and improved over time, break down in the body naturally after approximately 6 months.

One of the benefits of PDO threads over other techniques and materials is that these sutures trigger fibroblasts in your skin to produce more collagen, the protein that gives skin elasticity. Enhancing the production of collagen can reduce the signs of aging.

There are three types of PDO threads used in thread lift procedures. You can expect our trained practitioners to use the correct PDO threads to help you achieve the best results as safely as possible.

  • PDO mono threads – these threads are smooth and stimulate collagen production.
  • PDO screw threads – these are intertwined threads that we use to restore volume where required.
  • PDO cog threads – used to support and lift parts of your face, these threads have barbed areas to latch onto your skin.


MINT (TM) threads are popular threads used by our Tallahassee team. Marketed as a “safe solution to sagging skin,” these Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Threads (MINT) are a complex sugar polydioxanone or PDO, which is a safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. These threads are designed specifically to be robust, while minimizing recovery time.

In addition to MINT(TM) threads, our Tallahassee team will also consider the use of polylactic acid (PLA) and polycaprolactone (PCA) threads. These are more recent than PDO threads and tend to stimulate even more collagen production than PDO threads. These threads are absorbed by the body in a year or more and have their own areas where they are best used. They are good at lifting sagging skin for a moderate facelift with some improvement in texture and elasticity.

Our professionals are trained to recognize which thread would work best to achieve our clients’ goals. And we will communicate clearly with you to ensure that we are all on the same page regarding what is possible and what is likely.

As thread lifts are not as invasive as surgical facelifts, some of our clients opt for this procedure alongside other anti-aging procedures, including but not limited to dermal fillers.

We are in the business of restoring, enhancing, and protecting your natural beauty. If you’re looking for lasting results, this is also our goal. How long the effects of a non-surgical facelift thread lift will last, will depend on your age and the condition of your skin. You can rely on our trained professionals to provide the best techniques possible, to be straightforward about what you can expect, and to help you achieve optimum results.
