No Surgery Needed: Lift and Tighten Your Skin with a EuroThread Lift


Did you know that facelifts are one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States, with over 87,000 procedures performed in 2022 alone? While facelifts can effectively rejuvenate the face, they are invasive and require significant downtime for recovery. Fortunately, there is now a minimally invasive alternative: EuroThread Lift.

As we age, the elasticity of our skin reduces, and as a result, it begins to droop. EuroThread Lift is a revolutionary treatment that uses dissolvable threads to lift and tighten the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery.

Bryn Mawr Dermatology provides EuroThread Lift treatment to enhance and redefine your skin. Our team of dermatologists carefully evaluate your requirements to create a customized treatment strategy that suits your needs.

While this article spells out some important information about EuroThread Lift, we highly recommend you read the full article, here are the key points we will focus on:

What is a EuroThread Lift?

EuroThread lift is a non-surgical facelift that lifts and tightens the skin by inserting absorbable sutures into the skin’s subcutaneous tissue. The EuroThread lift can be used to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and other parts of the body.

According to a study conducted in 2017 on 100 individuals who underwent a thread lift, the primary outcome of the procedure is a tighter and more structured appearance of the skin.

The EuroThread lift is ideal for individuals experiencing early signs of aging and have mild to moderate skin laxity, and want to achieve a natural-looking lift without undergoing surgery. It is a quick and easy procedure that can be performed in our Bryn Mawr Dermatology Clinic in just under an hour.

How Does a EuroThread Work?

During a EuroThread treatment, the sutures are inserted using a thin needle, and once in place, they are gently pulled to lift and tighten the skin. The latticework of threads stimulates the body to produce new collagen, creating a newly strengthened structure that holds for 12 to 15 months. At Bryn Mawr Dermatology, cosmetic specialists use these threads to lift skin from a lower anchor point to a higher one, similar to what happens when someone pulls their skin back in front of a mirror.

The entire procedure takes less than an hour and requires no downtime. The EuroThread lift procedure can be performed with local anesthesia, which means the treated area is numbed with a local anesthetic before the threads are inserted. The results of the EuroThread lift are immediate, and patients will see a noticeable improvement in the firmness and tightness of their skin.

Is EuroThread as Effective as a Surgical Face Lift?

While EuroThread and surgical face lifts both aim to improve the appearance of sagging skin, there are some key differences between the two procedures. A surgical facelift involves the removal of excess skin and the tightening deeper tissues to provide significant and long-lasting results. EuroThread, on the other hand, is a non-surgical alternative that uses absorbable threads to lift and tighten the skin. While EuroThread may not provide results as extensive as those in a surgical facelift, it offers some benefits over surgery, including a quicker recovery time, less discomfort, and a lower risk of complications. The EuroThread lift is also much less expensive than surgery, making it a great option for those who want to improve the appearance of their skin without breaking the bank.

Ultimately, whether EuroThread or a surgical facelift is the right choice will depend on the individual’s specific needs and goals. A consultation with the experts at Bryn Mawr Dermatology can help you determine if you are a good candidate for a EuroThread Lift.

Where on My Body Can I Use EuroThread to Tighten My Skin?

EuroThread treatment can be used on various body areas to tighten and lift the skin. It can be used to lift sagging skin on the face, neck, and jawline, as well as to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. EuroThread can also be used on other areas of the body, such as the arms, knees, and abdomen, to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of sagging skin. Results may include a more defined jawline, reduced sagging skin, and a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

At Bryn Mawr Dermatology, the focus is on specific areas of the face and neck, such as:

  • The brow: Lifting the region above the eyebrows results in eyes that appear more alert and awake.
  • The mid and lower face: Lifting the cheeks and jaw area helps to tighten and raise the cheeks while decreasing the amount of sagging skin around the jawline.
  • The chin and jaw: Improving the skin’s tightness under the chin enhances the profile and shapes the jawline, giving it a more youthful look.
  • The neck: Eurothreads help establish a structural support system for the neck skin, which helps to diminish horizontal necklace lines, and accentuate the linkage between the chin and neck.

What Can I Expect After A EuroThread Treatment?

The procedure of placing the threads during Eurothread can lead to swelling and bruising around the targeted areas. However, this is the body’s natural reaction to any foreign object that penetrates the skin. It activates the healing process, which is essential for long-lasting results. Some patients may feel a pulling sensation in the treated areas, and it is advisable to avoid any strenuous activities that may put stress on the threads during the first few weeks after the procedure.

While the results are visible immediately after the treatment, it takes a few weeks for the threads to settle under the skin, and the tension to relax, resulting in a balanced and symmetrical appearance. However, the recovery time for EuroThread Lift is significantly less than that of a surgical procedure.

Our cosmetic specialists at BMD will follow up with you to ensure your satisfaction and suggest a comprehensive clinical skincare routine and additional procedures like Botox or microneedling to maintain the results.

Why Choose Bryn Mawr Dermatology for EuroThread Treatment?

Bryn Mawr Dermatology recognizes that every face ages uniquely and prides itself on creating personalized treatments for each patient. Although there is a basic procedure template for each area of the EuroThread lift, the quantity and placement of threads are tailored to the individual’s needs. The goal is to create a natural look that preserves the patient’s original appearance while reducing the signs of aging.

One of the things that sets the BMD team apart is our dedication to thorough training on new procedures.
