Who should consider a thread lift treatment? A thread lift treatment, also sometimes referred to as a lunchtime facelift, is a procedure that can be considered for individuals who have sagging skin in the eyebrow, cheeks, jawline, or neck area. It is best for young to middle aged patients between the ages of 35 and 45 who have mild to moderate skin sagging and weak facial contours.

In fact, its effectiveness in treating fine lines and wrinkles was only noticed as an incidental effect of patients receiving treatment for blepharospasm, which is an abnormal twitch in the eyelid.
