A thread lift is an innovative, minimally invasive alternative to a facelift. It involves inserting thin dissolvable threads into the cheeks or neck to lift and tighten sagging facial skin. The effects may last for several years and carry none of the risks inherent to invasive surgical procedures.
At Studio 360 Med Spa and Boutique in Highland Village, Texas, we offer thread lifts performed by an experienced, licensed provider. Book a consultation to see if this transformative, minimal-downtime procedure is right for you!
What Is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a safe and minimally invasive procedure to help lift, tighten, and contour the face and neck. We use EuroThreads, a technology that’s been FDA-approved for medical use for decades and for cosmetic use since 2015. The threads are made of polydioxanone or PDO, a biodegradable polymer used for medical sutures, which is why this procedure is sometimes called a PDO thread lift.
During the procedure, the dissolvable EuroThreads are strategically placed under the loose skin. These threads consist of sutures with tiny barbs that keep the skin in place after lifting for immediate results. Overtime, the sutures also promote the formation of new collagen, making your skin thicker and firmer.
This treatment is highly effective in treating any areas on the face and neck where sagging occurs, such as the cheeks, neck, jawline, jowls, and more.
Thread lifts have a high patient satisfaction rate and few side effects. When weighing your options for facial rejuvenation and contouring, a thread lift can be a great temporary alternative to plastic surgery. The benefits of a thread lift with EuroThreads include:
- Minimally invasive and non-surgical
- Quick treatment times
- Very little downtime
- Fewer risks than surgery
- Faster results
- Thread lifts can be combined with other treatments, such as Botox
Why We Use EuroThreads for Thread Lifts
Thread lifts are a great alternative for those looking to lift sagging skin and maintain a more youthful appearance. The incisions made to insert the threads are so small that they don’t leave any scarring.
While not a permanent solution, the results can last up to seven years before requiring follow-up treatments.

Ideal Candidates for Thread Lifts
Good candidates for a thread lift procedure are healthy men and women with mild-to-moderate skin laxity and signs of aging. Most of our patients are approximately 35–45 years old. A thread lift may also be suitable for someone who’s had a facelift in the past and wishes to continue to slow the aging process.
Thread lifts address the following conditions and areas:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging cheeks
- Loose and saggy neck area or “turkey neck”
- Nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Smoker lines
- Sagging jawline and jowls
- Neck lines
Thread lifts are not recommended for people with excessive loose skin, who are obese, who have facial implants or permanent fillers, or who are immunocompromised or have diabetes.
Before & Afters
The results from thread lifts with EuroThreads are immediately noticeable and continue to improve for a month after treatment. Following your thread lift treatment, your skin will immediately appear tighter and more contoured. Any redness, swelling or bruising, will subside within a few days.
What to Expect from Your EuroThreads Treatment
Before undergoing thread lifting with EuroThreads, we recommend you:
- Avoid alcohol the night before
- Relax and avoid stressors
- Steer clear of inflammation triggers in your diet
- Avoid blood thinning medications and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for a week before your treatment
At your appointment, your provider will discuss your aesthetic goals, evaluate your skin and explain the thread lift process, answering any questions to ensure you’re comfortable.
Then, the area to be treated will be thoroughly cleaned and a local anesthetic applied for your comfort. Using a fine needle or cannula, your provider will carefully insert the dissolvable threads beneath your skin. These threads are then gently lifted to achieve the desired effect, enhancing facial contours and stimulating collagen production for long-term rejuvenation. You may feel a tightening or tugging sensation.
After the procedure, which typically lasts less than an hour, you’ll have time to rest and view the immediate results in a mirror. A member of our team will discuss aftercare instructions, including avoiding strenuous activities for a few days. Before you leave, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress and answer any further questions.
From entry to exit, our team is dedicated to your comfort, satisfaction, and stunning results. Welcome to the rejuvenating experience of a thread lift at Studio 360 Med Spa.
Recovery and Aftercare
After a thread lift, you might experience some slight swelling, redness, bruising, and sensitivity in the treatment area. These side effects typically aren’t severe enough to require bed rest or time off work.
For a week after your appointment, avoid vigorously rubbing your face and sleep on your back with your head slightly elevated. You might also be advised to avoid using certain skin care products, saunas and high-intensity workouts for the first few weeks after treatment.
Cost of a Thread Lift in Texas
The cost of a thread lift treatment varies according to how many threads are being inserted. For example, treating only one area such as your neck will be less expensive than treating both your neck and cheeks. A thread lift in Texas can range from $1,200– $4,200 per treatment.

How long do EuroThreads last?
EuroThreads are not permanent and tend to last for about a year and a half. However, it’s important to remember that individual results may vary and some individuals may enjoy the results for longer than others.
What are the side effects of EuroThreads?
Some of the side effects patients may experience include swelling, bruising, redness, and pain at the treated area. In very rare cases, patients may experience an adverse reaction to the threads; this can be rectified by removing them.
How many sessions of EuroThreads are required?
You will see results immediately after your first thread lift treatment and there’s no need for multiple treatments. However, since the treatment isn’t permanent, you might want to have it done again once the sagging returns.
Can you feel the threads in your face?
No, the threads placed under your skin during a thread lift are so small that you won’t notice them after the treatment and once the area has healed. These threads will also start to dissolve within six to eight months.
