What are Threadlifts?
Threadlifts are a new and cutting-edge treatment to address signs of aging in the face and mimic the results of a facelift without having to undergo an invasive surgical procedure. During a threadlift, “threads” or lengths of medical-grade material, are inserted under the surface of the skin and manipulated to lift the features of the face from the inside out. This does all the work of a facelift without having to deal with the cutting, scarring, recovery time, and anesthesia. Dr. Armstrong loves the threadlift so much that she even created her very own proprietary threads made with specially formulated Poly-L-Lactic acid (PLLA). These threads not only physically lift the features of the face, but the PLLA in the threads stimulates collagen production to help your results improve for up to two years. Over time, the PLLA threads simply dissolve, at which point patients can consider another treatment.
What are the Benefits of a Threadlift?
There are many benefits to receiving a threadlift with Dr. Armstrong, including:
- Minimally invasive cosmetic treatment
- No invasive cutting, scarring, or anesthesia
- Threads lift the skin and structures under the skin for a rejuvenated appearance
- Smooths away unwanted fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightens loose skin around the mid-face
- PLLA threads increase collagen production over time
- No downtime or recovery period
What Can I Expect During my Threadlift Treatment?
Your threadlift will be performed by Dr. Jennifer Armstrong in our state-of-the-art facility. Before your treatment begins, Dr. Armstrong will cleanse your skin and administer a local anesthetic to your treated area. This is to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your treatment while still remaining awake. She will begin to place her proprietary PLLA threads into the skin using an injection method. Once the threads are placed, they will be manipulated to lift the skin and ultimately smooth away signs of aging. The entire treatment process typically takes less than 90 minutes to complete.
What Can I Expect After my Threadlift Treatment?
After your threadlift treatment, you may notice mild redness, tenderness, bruising, and swelling around your treated areas. This is normal and typically resolves on its own with a day or two of treatment. While you may be able to see some initial results of your treatment immediately following your appointment, the ultimate results may take up to three months to appear. This is because the PLLA in the threads takes time to build up new collagen in the body. Dr. Armstrong may recommend using medical-grade skincare products to soothe your skin following treatment and to help maintain your desired results for the long term.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Threadlift?
If you’re looking for a minimally invasive and cutting-edge anti-aging treatment that smooths away signs of aging for years at a time, a threadlift may be right for you. Ideal candidates for a threadlift are in general good health and have realistic expectations of their results.

She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
