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.

Why choose us?

Our Senior Cosmetic Physicians, Dr Gavin Scriven (a.k.a ‘Dr Gav’), Dr Tauseef Zia (a.k.a ‘Dr Toshi’) and Dr Jeremy Cumpston, are highly experienced in face thread lifting, neck thread lifting, and body thread lifting. Our Cosmetic Doctors have been performing these treatments for many years after having trained in thread lifting techniques both locally and internationally, and both having trained other doctors on how to perform Thread Lifts.

Our Senior Cosmetic Doctors commonly use 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 TGA Approved Korean PDO Long and Short Mono Threads.

With our depth of experience, we will develop a tailored treatment plan for your personal goals and our holistic medical assessment.

What is a thread lift? 

Thread lifting is a minimally invasive technique that lifts the soft tissues of the face, neck or body. The procedure involves the use of multiple biocompatible threads inserted under the skin to lift and support the underlying skin tissues, pulling the skin at specific vectors to achieve a natural-looking contoured result.

Acting as a kind of scaffolding, threads typically have unique cogs or barbs which attach to the tissue as they lift the skin, complementing the natural line of the face or neck, or other parts of the body such as the knees, arms, thighs and abdomen.

A thread lift has a two-stage lifting effect: the initial lift is seen immediately as the threads anchor to the tissues under your skin. The secondary lift is through the production of new collagen – as your body gradually dissolves the threads, it generates new collagen in their place, helping to maintain the lifting effect for years to come while also improving skin quality and appearance.

Types of threads and thread lifts 

At Pavilion Cosmetic Medicine our Senior Cosmetic Doctors use a variety of best-in-class TGA-approved threads, and after a Doctor consultation we will advise you on the most appropriate option for you depending on your treatment needs, area of the body to be treated, as well as your individual requirements and preferences. All of the threads we use are biodegradable and medical-grade and have been extensively used in surgical procedures for many years.

Dr Gav and his Doctor team are trained in the latest and most advanced types of threads. These include Silhouette Soft PLA (polylactic acid) Threads, MINT PDO (polydioxanone) Threads, APTOS (polylactic acid and polycaprolactone), and Korean PDO Long and Mono Threads.

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.
