Why Neck Thread Lifting?

It’s inevitable that as we get older we start to notice sagging skin on our face, neck and body, coupled with changes in the texture and quality of our skin.

Thread lifting offers a non-surgical solution to correct these age-related changes and can achieve outstanding results with low downtime.

Common concerns that can be treated by threads for the neck are:

  • Lift and tighten sagging skin under the chin, also known as the ‘double chin’.
  •  Lift and tighten skin to the front of the neck, reducing what is commonly called the ‘Turkey neck’.
  • Improve skin texture and give an overall tightening to the neck.
  • Soften the deep horizontal lines in the neck that commonly form with age.

Why choose us?

Our Principle Cosmetic Physician and Medical Director, Dr Gavin Scriven (@dr.gavscriv) and his team of Senior Cosmetic Doctors such as Dr Toshi Zia and Dr Jeremy Cumpston each have extensive experience in Thread Lifting on the face, neck, and body after training in advanced techniques both locally and internationally.

At Pavilion Cosmetic Medicine our team of Senior Cosmetic Doctors specialise in a variety of different types of threads to address our clients’ individual concerns and depending on the face, neck or body area; including APTOS, Silhouette Soft, MINT and Korean PDO Long and Mono Threads. With our depth of experience, we will develop a tailored treatment plan for your personal goals and our holistic medical assessment.

Key benefits

  • Minimally invasive alternative to surgical procedures
  • No incisions or scarring
  • Provides natural-looking lift and tone to the face, jowls, neck and brow
  • Stimulates collagen to improve the appearance of lax skin on the neck, arms, abdomen and other areas
  • Provides immediate, high-impact results that continue to improve over time as collagen forms around the threads
  • Limited downtime
  • Long-lasting


The initial lift from a thread lift is seen immediately. A secondary lift effect is achieved around 3-6 months later as the threads integrate with skin tissue and collagen forms around the threads. 

Best results can take between 6 weeks and 6 months to appear and will last up to 3 years.

Treatment Details

What to expect


A Doctor consultation is required prior to treatment. Our Doctor will listen to your concerns, assess your degree of ageing and skin laxity, and develop a personalised treatment plan aligned with your needs and aesthetic objectives. You will also be explained the procedure in detail, we will answer any questions you may have, and give you an understanding of the potential results a thread lift could achieve for you.

During consultation, you will be advised of the thread type suitable and how many threads are required to achieve your desired results.


The procedure is performed in our clinic and does not require any incisions or sedation. Local anaesthesia will be injected at entry/exit points and the procedure itself is typically comfortable; you should feel no pain and little discomfort.

The threads are inserted just below the dermis using a long, soft needle or cannula. The skin is gently remodelled and the threads tightened into position. The unique little cones or barbs on the threads connect with tissue and retain skin in the new compressed position. The sensation of threading is much like a standard dermal filler procedure using a micro-cannula.

A thread lifting procedure takes about 60 minutes.

Downtime and Recovery

Downtime and recovery are significantly less than traditional surgery, ranging from 2-7 days depending on the extent of your procedure and the area treated.

The most common side effects are mild swelling, bruising and tenderness, which should subside 3-5 days after treatment. Less common risks include infection and nerve damage – always make sure you see a qualified doctor experienced in the thread lifting procedure to help mitigate these risks.
