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 is highly trained and strives to provide results that look natural and fresh.
"Lua is my go to esthetician and Jaqueline is my go to injector! I go to Lua for Hydrafacials and she does a great job with extractions (and I have a lot to extract!!). She’s always thorough and her facials always relax me. Jacqueline is a legitimate artist. I’ve gotten botox with her and she’s given me just the right amount so that I don’t wrinkle but I don’t look frozen. She also just did my filler and did an amazing job evening out asymmetries on my face. She can take one look at your face and find a way to even it out and accentuate your natural beauty within minutes. Also I love the at B&B added another physician assistant to the team! B&B offers a variety of procedures and has a great team. Appreciate that they also have monthly specials. Thanks B&B and specifically Lua and Jaqueline for making my face look nice!!!"- J.H. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2022

""After a month of compliments about how refreshing my face appeared, how vibrant my skin looked, how much younger I seemed, I felt obligated to write this review. One month ago, I set up an account, created a profile and scheduled what I thought was just going to be a consultation about options to improve my image. Little did I realize that within an hour or so, I would walk out of Body+Beauty Lab, Philadelphia, with a newness I'd never imagined. From the first step through the Lab door to the comfort of the private room to the expertise of the technician, this experience (my first) was LUXURIOUS. In particular, the care, expertise and skill of Jacqueline Clarizio was nothing short of exceptional. Jacqueline seemed to have sculpted my face as if she'd studied it for days. Three days after my first treatment, the comments of 'what are you doing to your skin? It looks INCREDIBLE' flooded my social media platforms. I cannot thank the team at Body+Beauty Lab, Philadelphia, enough for the product and service they provide the enclave of Society Hill." And, I cannot wait to return". Sincerely, a new, loyal customer."- Q.H. / Google / Sep 08, 2022
"While I expected a great facial treatment during my first appointment at Body and Beauty lab, what I got was so much more..Lua, my esthetician, really addressed all of my skin issues and walked me through what the treatment would feel like step by step.. how it would feel on my skin.. and what to expect.. the Moxi treatment and all that she did made my skin look incredible!!! I have battled melasma (dark spots) ever sense being pregnant - (over 10 years) tried every lightening treatment and serum and treatment- after my session with Lua it was amazing my spots were so much lighter and some were gone like magic!… my skin texture is smoother- clearer and brighter! Can’t wait for my next session THANK YOU!"- E.M. / Google / Aug 15, 2022
"I have now been to Body And Beauty Lab twice. It’s been a wonderful experience both times the staff is professional friendly and knowledgeable. I got injections that times from Anya and love the car and the results I recommend it highly"- D.P. / Yelp / Aug 13, 2022
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 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 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.
