About the threadlift
Not everyone is looking for an invasive solution to address their loose, wrinkled skin. In fact, many can be wary of surgery because of the incisions, scarring, and lengthy recovery period that comes with it. However, with recent advancements in techniques and technology being made in the aesthetic industry, our Philadelphia, PA clients no longer have to undergo facelift surgery to reap the benefits of having a tighter, smoother complexion. Body+Beauty Lab is proud to offer patients the ThreadLift, a nonsurgical facelift performed with novathreads loaded with polydioxanone (PDO). This treatment serves to sculpt your facial appearance without any cutting or general anesthesia. Secured in the neck or jawline, this procedure addresses sagging skin around the eyes, forehead, mid-face, and mouth to create a stunning, youthful outcome. When you receive this treatment at our premier medical spa, your face will appear years younger and look rejuvenated and fresh. Call our office to learn more about the thrilling nonsurgical ThreadLift.
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads can be compared to the sutures that are used during procedures. Our PDO ThreadLift treatment stimulates your body's production of collagen to add volume and fullness throughout your face, which improves the look of sagging. Our clients typically only require one initial session to see results, but we recommend that women and men who receive this treatment return for a touch-up after 2 – 3 years. It may take up to six months for you to see your final outcomes as your face heals and adjusts to its new lifted appearance. There's no need to fear looking fake or artificial — our skilled team of estheticians are highly trained and strive to provide results that look natural and fresh.
"A friend gifted me a Hydrafacial with Judy for my birthday and I loved it! She even emailed me a few days later to find out how my skin was doing. I look forward to coming in soon and purchasing some skin care to get through these summer months."- C.G. / Google / Mar 30, 2021
"I’ve been seeing Judy for a few months now and wow! I never knew my skin could look so good. I started by getting a hydrafacial and have since been taking the most awesome advice from Judy. I thought the dark marks on my face would never go away. Just did IPL treatment and it got so much lighter! Highly recommend Judy and the establishment."- S.S. / Google / Mar 29, 2021
"I decided to go and get the Dermasleek (Hydrafacial + dermaplaning) done with Judy after a friend recommended her, and my face felt so clean and smooth afterwards. Judy let me know everything she was doing along the way so there weren't any surprises. She even followed up with me during the week just to see how my skin was reacting and feeling. I can't wait to go back and see her again!"- A.S. / Google / Mar 29, 2021
"BBL is my go-to for all things beauty and skin care. Anya is an amazingly talented injector who truly listens and works with you to achieve the results you're looking for. Michelle is such a talented aesthetician (which I will mention I am qualified to say being an aesthetician myself for 7 years). I wouldn't go anywhere else for my skincare and beauty needs. All that being said -- BBL has amazing rewards programs helping make their services affordable in comparison to a lot of other places I have been. The staff is friendly and the space itself is clean, organized and immaculately decorated."- K.A. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"I received the Hydrafacial from Judy for the first time at Body+Beauty. The place is a beautiful, calming space with all COVID precautions in place. Judy was exceptional and so welcoming during my initial virtual session and facial. She was knowledgeable and helpful during the facial and even gave recommendations for my future skin care regimen. I highly recommend Body+Beauty for skin care and will be back for future services. My skin feels brand new! Oh and they have "perks" which can add up to redeem for free services in the future!"- C.B. / Yelp / Mar 18, 2021
At Body+Beauty Lab, our experienced team provides ThreadLifts for facial rejuvenation that can be customized to address your unique aging concerns. If you would like to firm and smooth your complexion without undergoing a surgical procedure, then this treatment could be right for you. If you're interested in the benefits you could receive from this procedure, contact our office to schedule a consultation so we can determine if you could be a candidate. Potential candidates for the ThreadLift are those who:
- Desire a younger appearance
- Are intimidated by or hesitant to undergo an invasive, surgical procedure
- Would like to reduce the look of marionette lines or other wrinkles
- Have loose, sagging skin in the cheeks, neck, or jawline
To start your session, your esthetician can administer a topical anesthetic to the treatment areas to ensure your optimal comfort. The threads are prepared in needles that are preloaded with a polydioxanone suture, which is then placed into the skin. After we mark your skin for precise placement, the sutures are placed through the tissues of the face and neck, then pulled to create a lifted but natural look. These nonsurgical sutures are incredibly safe and have even been used during open-heart surgery. The skin will absorb the PDO novathreads over time, which will then dissolve after 4 – 6 months. In this time, your body's natural production of collagen will help to repair, lift, and tighten the skin. If any threads are leftover from your procedure, they will be removed.
What to expect
Following your ThreadLift, you will see an immediate improvement in your skin that will continue to look better as your body's production of collagen increases and supplements your results. Your fullest outcomes will become visible about 4 – 6 months after your treatment. Unlike with surgical alternatives, there is no downtime associated with the ThreadLift. You may experience some tenderness, swelling, or bruising for up to three days post-procedure. A member of our team will go over everything you can expect to see in the weeks following. We will also provide an estimated time to receive a touch-up treatment, which is typically needed after 2 – 3 years.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does a ThreadLift cost?

During your consultation, a customized program will be created and your costs will be discussed. To save money on future rejuvenation procedures offered by Body+Beauty Lab, consider joining our exclusive VIP membership program.
How does it differ from a facelift?
A surgical facelift is an invasive procedure that removes excess skin, creates scars, and requires extensive downtime. A ThreadLift is a nonsurgical alternative that lifts the skin for a firmer, refreshed look without a lengthy recovery period. This treatment is ideal for those who yearn for a younger look but are hesitant to undergo a surgical procedure.
How long do the results last?
The longevity of your results will vary from patient to patient. Our experienced estheticians can provide you with options to maintain your youthful results. If after some time you find that you are in need of a touch-up procedure, we'd be more than happy to refresh your look.
Can I combine other procedures?
You can combine your ThreadLift with a range of other treatments. In fact, many of our clients opt to receive BOTOX or a wrinkle filler along with their procedure to smooth out additional lines and folds throughout their face. Be sure to discuss all of our concerns and goals with your esthetician to guarantee that your best results are achieved.
