How does a lifting thread procedure work?

If you’re considering Spring Thread® permanent lifting thread, it’s natural to wonder how the procedure will work. For many, the unknown can be a source of anxiety, but understanding the process can alleviate these concerns and allow you to feel more at ease before taking the plunge. In this article, we’ll take a look at the different stages involved in a liftingthreead procedure, from the initial consultation to the post-operative recommendations.

Initial consultation:

First and foremost, your journey will begin with an initial consultation with your doctor or surgeon trained in the use of Spring Thread®. At this appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals and ask any questions you may have about the procedure. The practitioner will ask you a few questions about your health and ensure that you have no contraindications. He or she will then examine your skin to determine whether you are a good candidate for the lifting thread.


Once you have decided to proceed with tensor threading, your practitioner will explain the preparatory steps to follow. This may include taking or avoiding certain medications or topical products. Be sure to follow these instructions to ensure the best possible results.

The procedure:

On the day of the procedure, you will be welcomed in the doctor’s surgery where the insertion will take place. The procedure itself is generally quick and minimally invasive, which means that it is carried out on an outpatient basis, without the need for a general anaesthetic.

  1. Drawings and local anaesthetic: Before starting, the practitioner will draw the paths of the threads on your face. He will then administer a local anaesthetic in the form of an injection to minimise any discomfort during the procedure. This can be either at the entry and exit points of the threads, or all along the thread path, depending on the preferences of the patient and the practitioner.
  2. Insertion of the tensor threads: Once the area to be treated is numbed, the doctor will begin to insert the threads under the skin using the needle. The threads are strategically positioned to create a lifting effect and improve the areas defined together beforehand: cheekbone, nasolabial fold, bitterness folds, jowls, neck, etc.
  3. Adjustment and fixation: Once the threads are in place, the practitioner will place you in a sitting position and adjust their tension to obtain the desired aesthetic result. The threads are then cut.
  4. Cleaning and post-procedure care: Once the tightening threads have been placed, the treated area is cleaned and you will be given instructions on post-procedure care to follow at home. This may include applying special creams or following certain guidelines to optimise results and minimise the risk of complications.


Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure, although some may experience mild discomfort or temporary redness at the injection site. However, these side effects are generally minor and disappear quickly.

We still recommend that you remain calm for 48 hours after the procedure. Avoid strenuous physical activity, prolonged exposure to the sun and contact with animals for the first few days after the procedure, to allow optimal recovery without the risk of infection.


Spring Thread® permanent tightening is a safe and effective procedure for repositioning facial tissue and restoring a harmonious oval shape. By understanding how the procedure works, you can approach your appointment with confidence, knowing that you are in good hands. Don’t forget that your doctor is there to answer any questions you may have. You can discuss your aesthetic goals and determine whether this procedure is right for you.
