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.
"I had my first EVER facial yesterday (at the age of 62), and I was delighted with both the process and the outcome. Leigh Ann was the staff person who did the facial. She was friendly, and quickly put me at ease. She explained everything she was doing, and gave me recommendations. I did the hydrafacial with dermaplaning. My skin feels great today, smooth, soft and moisturized. I will definitely be doing this again."- S.R. / Yelp / Jan 07, 2021
"I had my first ever lip filler done last Saturday by Lisa DiLello and I am really happy with my results. I was really nervous but Lisa was professional yet personable and really put my nerves at ease. I am loving the finished look! I will definitely recommend Lisa to my friends and will book with her when I want more!"- A.C. / Google / Nov 30, 2020
"I had the pleasure of getting my first ever lip filler done by Lisa DiLello! She made me feel so comfortable before, during, and after. She explained every step and it really eased my nerves throughout the entire process. I am so happy with the results and have already recommended her to friends and family. I definitely will be booking with Lisa in the future (and when I’m ready for more lip filler)!"- I.V. / Google / Nov 24, 2020
"Where do I begin? I’m 41 and still very self conscious of the scars that teenage acne left me. I didn’t have acne for a long time, it came in quick, it came in BAD and then Accutane made it disappear. However it has left me with scars that still make me cringe. So one day I reached out to Michelle and asked her advice on what I can do to make it better. Or less noticeable. That’s when she took the wheel. (Top two pictures are before any treatment was started at all.) She started out with doing a Sublative Treatment the first session to help with my pores. Fast forward a few weeks and now she wants to give me a Frax Laser treatment. It’s starts with a numbing cream about 45 mins prior to the procedure. Then she did a Dermaplaning treatment to my face to remove the dead skin and facial hair. After that, the laser starts. This procedure has been done twice. Top two pictures are before any treatment at all. Bottom two are after 1 Sublative treatment and 2 Frax laser treatments. I cannot describe the feeling I have when my friends compliment the improvement so far. Only two people knew I was getting this done. I have been complimented by about 6-7 people asking if I didn’t anything to my skin because it looked so good! Well yes I did! I went and seen Michelle Glynn. She worked her magic and has made me feel a ton better already! I am still healing. This isn’t an overnight fix. But the work in progress is amazing and I love it. I could never thank Michelle enough for setting up the game plan and using her knowledge to help me “iron out the creases” LITERALLY. From walking into such a calm, immaculate and professional atmosphere that helps ease first time jitters to the results I have already, my trust and my face will go nowhere else but too Michelle and Body & Beauty Lab!"- J.K. / Google / Nov 23, 2020
"I have been to Jen Perry at Body and Beauty Lab three times and each time it has been amazing. She is kind and gentle and really works with you to get the best results. I highly recommend Body + Beauty Lab and Jen Perry! I actually made the mistake of going somewhere else and I had the worst experience! I will only go to Jen and I hope others will go to Jen, too:)"- A.L. / Google / Nov 04, 2020
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?

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.
