We all experience the appearance of jowls, nasolabial folds and marionette lines over time. We also see our cheekbones sag just like our neck. These are the universal signs of aging.

The Infinite-Thread® was created to make them disappear for good.

Why thread lift is the solution ?

Because the subcutaneous tissues collapse over time.

This sagging of fatty tissues (also called hypodermis) from the upper third of the face to the lower third is responsible for the appearance of these signs of aging. It is therefore necessary to opt for a treatment which allows these tissues to be repositioned in their original location. This is exactly the purpose of the Infinite-Thread®, whose very numerous small notches catch and gently lift the subcutaneous tissues.

While it is true that several phenomena are at work, such as the melting of certain facial fat tissues, this remains moderate over time. There is even a slight increase in the total volume of fat, deep and superficial, under the skin until the age of 80. The rupture of the oval and neck, the collapse of the cheekbones, the appearance of jowls, nasolabial folds and bitterness folds is mainly the result of a phenomenon of sagging rather than melting.

You can do a very simple test to convince yourself. Lie down and look at your face in a mirror. You will see that all these signs of aging will then have almost disappeared. This is proof of the value of tissue repositioning and the fight against the effect of gravity.

Thread lift now makes it possible to meet this need for tissue repositioning by combining Infinite-Thread® with the modern technique most adapted to the patient’s needs.


Beyond being a perfectly adapted procedure, the Thread & Lift solution has many advantages:

Our solution offers the patient a visibly embellished appearance. The average rejuvenation observed by our experts is between 5 and 10 years.

This rejuvenation is the immediate result of the repositioning of the collapsed tissues to their original location thanks to the notches of the Infinite-Thread®. The folds, lines and other jowls formed by the sliding of the subcutaneous fat are greatly dissipated or even eliminated. The cheekbones are redesigned and the jawline is tightened.

But this rejuvenation is also due to recovered skin quality, after a few months. The skin recovers its tonus and is plumped. Although no studies have yet been carried out, both patients and physicians testify to this phenomenon. Our experts are convinced that this improvement in the vascularization of the skin can be explained as follows: by collapsing, the fat (hypodermis) drags the blood vessels it contains down. Vessels that communicate with the skin (epidermis and dermis) and “nourish” it. Yet, the sagging of the hypodermis stretches these vessels, which mechanically causes a reduction in their diameter. Lesser irrigation causes the skin to lose its quality and complexion. By repositioning the hypodermis, the suspension threads will allow these vessels to regain their former caliber and irrigate the skin properly again to make it recover a much higher quality. This usually occurs between 3 and 4 months after the thread lift.

This guarantee of a natural result is the consequence of several advantages of the Thread & Lift solution.

First, our Infinite-Thread® is sold only to certified practitioners who perfectly master facelifts by suspension threads. This expertise makes them able to determine the best positioning of the threads according to the needs of each patient. This positioning must correspond to the paths that the patient’s fat tissues naturally follow when they collapse. In this way, the threads will lift these subcutaneous tissues in the opposite direction along the natural axis. They are thus repositioned at their original location.

The determination of these paths, more scientifically called “vectors”, makes it possible to restore a natural appearance of youth for the patient without it being possible to notice the act.

Then, our thread does not require any surgical detachment or scalpel incision to be implanted. This absence also means the absence of scaring. There is, therefore, no reason to try to hide it behind the ear, where it is least visible, sometimes creating the unnatural appearance of a surgical facelift.

Furthermore, the patient’s tissues are not at risk with the needle that is used to implant our thread. This is an absolutely non-cutting needle called “blunt” needle. It is soft for the tissues because it cannot incise them, avoiding any risk of alteration of a nerve or a blood vessel. Moreover, in order to guarantee optimum quality and a shape perfectly adapted to the Thread & Lift facelift, we manufacture those needles ourselves.

Finally, the features of the face remain natural, at rest and in movement. The face does not widen because the suspension threads do not add volume. In addition, no wrinkles or dimples ever appear if the procedure is performed on a patient with a good indication and according to the know-how teached during our training.

Beyond the obvious search for a natural result, this criterion also makes it possible to avoid having to justify one’s choice to their entourage. The act remains between the patient and their practitioner. Your loved ones will find that you look good. They will ask you if you are returning from a holiday but will have very little chances of finding out that you have benefited from an aesthetic act.

The durability of the result depends on the quality of the threads used but also on the stability of their positioning. This is the commitment of Infinite-Thread® and the advanced techniques used by our certified practitioners.

Indeed, the loss of result after a thread lift can always be explained by 3 reasons:

  1. The absorption by the body
  2. The lengthening of the thread
  3. The lack of hooking by the cogs

As we explain on the “Our solution” page, Infinite-Thread® combines all the necessary qualities to provide 100% protection against these 3 issues.

First of all, Infinite-Thread® is made from biocompatible and permanent materials such as polyester (from cardiac sutures) and medical grade solid silicone (reference material for medical devices such as prostheses). These materials are neutral because they are not absorbed by the body and create almost no fibrosis reactions. They are the safest and most suitable materials for a permanent tensor thread.

Secondly, the Infinite-Thread® does not lengthen over time. Its materials do not distort once implanted and, above all, are not elastic. This is crucial in order to maintain the result for a long time. Indeed, an elastic thread always means that it will eventually lengthen. The thread will one day lose its ability to regain its original shape and, as with any elastic object, it will grow larger.

Finally, Infinite-Thread® has more than 800 notches along its entire length. Their number and patented shape ensure an average traction efficiency of +60% compared to other permanent suspension threads*. This traction ability also guarantees that the thread will remain positioned where your practitioner has implanted it, in order to guarantee an optimal result for many years.

*Tested by Thread & Lift in the laboratory in 2018 on more than 40 different threads

The Thread & Lift solution guarantees total discretion.

Beyond the natural result, discretion is guaranteed thanks to the complete invisibility of our thread under the skin. Not implanted superficially but in the mid hypodermis, far away enough from the muscles, it also remains absolutely painless, even to the touch.

The Infinite-Thread® creates no mark, no “bump”. It is therefore impossible for a hairdresser or dentist, for instance, to notice. (Another precision we want to bring as many patients have asked our experts: our thread is not metallic and therefore does not sound at safety gates in airports or elsewhere.)

This discretion is also reinforced by the absence of hospitalization, due to the simple local anesthesia. The procedure lasts only 1 hour and 15 minutes, the 15 minutes being for the anesthesia. The patient can then go home directly. (It is nevertheless advisable to be accompanied should you wish to go home by car.)

Finally, activities can be resumed very quickly, after only 3 to 8 days on average. The edema will then have almost disappeared and, even in the very rare case of possible bruising or hematoma, they will always be light and easy to hide with makeup.

The term “permanent” can be frightening and we are fully aware of it. It is, however, a sign of safety for the patient because it means that the body accepts the thread and does not reject it. 

In addition, choosing Infinite-Thread® means choosing a thread designed to let you change your mind at any time.

Even if the patient does not do anything, a permanent thread must be designed to be reversible and not a commitment for life. That’s why we designed the Infinite-Thread® with the aim that it can be removed:

  • Even years after the procedure,
  • And without any sequela.

This removal is made possible by the integrity of our thread and its soft materials for the body. This removal is also made possible by the fact that Infinite-Thread® is easily locatable. Its purple color makes it impossible to confuse with a natural human tissue and its composition makes it visible to the ultrasound.

The removal of Infinite-Thread® requires strict compliance with the recommendations of the Thread & Lift laboratory. This is a medical procedure for which the practitioner carrying out the removal of Infinite-Thread® is exclusively responsible.

Infinite-Thread® is CE marked. This means that it meets the very stringent requirements of the European Union for medical devices. Moreover, this suspension thread is made of biomaterials, namely polyester and solid medical grade silicone, which have been the gold-standards for permanent medical devices for more than 50 years.

These biocompatible materials are the references used by the medical industry since the 1960s.

Moreover, it is important to note that our thread does not prevent or hinder the realization of a scan or an MRI. It does not have any negative impact whatever the medical examination, concerning its realization or the reading of its results. In the event of an emergency intervention after an accident, it will never pose any problem to the doctor or surgeon.

Finally, the Thread & Lift facelift does not present any contraindications to health and safety, except for pregnant women as always as a precautionary measure. The use of laser to treat brown, red spots, or even rosacea is in no way a contraindication. Similarly, there is no risk to sun exposure, even directly after surgery.

It should be noted that radiofrequency, infra-red, and focused ultra-sound are to be avoided after any thread lift but only for effectiveness reasons. These procedures have the effect of heating and softening the subcutaneous tissues that will then lose their ability to be hooked by the suspension threads. While the threads remain intact, the quality of the result would drop. This, therefore, remains a contraindication in terms of efficacy and not in terms of safety, which remains assured.

Another important advantage of the Thread & Lift solution is that it is made for nearly all patients:

• For women and men
• For smokers and non-smokers, since there is no healing
• For light and dark skins without exception, since there is absolutely no risk of bad scarring (Keloid)
For patients who have already undergone a surgical facelift in the past
For patients wishing to benefit from a surgical facelift in the future

The only postoperative effect consists of the possible appearance of a slight edema at the temples and cheekbones.

They are the result of inflammation caused by two factors. The first is the local anesthetic that is injected during the operation, essential in order to have neither pain nor any hematoma. The second is the passage of the thread during the act.

In no case are these phenomena a response of the organism to the Infinite-Thread® itself. It is a response to the passing of the needle and the thread when it is put into position. This is why they disappear definitely on average after 15 days and do not persist while the thread is still in place.


Here is an explanatory diagram of this only postoperative effect:

Concerning the pain caused by the Thread & Lift procedure, it is very well treated by simply taking analgesics during the first 3 days following the lift. It then decreases to become only discomfort which will, on average, disappear completely after 15 days.


Here is an explanatory diagram of this postoperative pain:

There are very rare cases, in particular because of the use of anti-coagulants by the patient, where the procedue can lead to bruising or a hematoma. They will always be minimal and disappear very quickly.

Like any procedure, thread lift encounters limits. There are three of them.

The body

The first of the three limits is location. In our experience, only the face and neck can be treated.

Unfortunately, the rest of the body remains impossible to treat properly with any suspension thread. The weight of the tissues to be supported in certain areas of the body such as the buttocks renders the effectiveness and durability of the result unconvincing.

The loss of elasticity

The second limit relates to the aging of the deep layers of the facial skin.

When this aging leads to high loss of elasticity – when more than 1cm of skin has to be cut in front of the ear – this can only be treated with a surgical cervical lift. Only this procedure will allow to carry out this cutaneous resection and to make the excess skin disappear.

The deep wrinkles

The third and final limit relates to the aging of the superficial layers of the facial skin.

When there are too many deep wrinkles, a surface treatment of the skin has to be carried out such as a deep peel or resurfacing laser. Only then will the repositioning of the tissues thanks to the Thread & Lift facelift be indicated.
