Let’s talk: Thread lift Safety


Thread lift Safety: Ensuring Safe and Effective Aesthetic Treatments

As you know, Dr. Mahsa is extremely passionate about safety in aesthetic treatments and increasing regulation across the sector. She’s a proud advocate, speaking out about the changes needed in the industry to safeguard patient health. This passion drove her to create the Threadbare Campaign, in partnership with SaveFace. In this article, we will speak elaborately on thread safety.

Dr. Mahsa x SaveFace

Dr. Mahsa and Ashton Collins, Founder and Director of SaveFace, are a force to be reckoned with—striving for change in the industry and safeguarding patients’ health. Their campaign aims to support the safe practice of thread treatments and drive up industry standards by raising awareness of improper thread lift procedure risks. This can only be achieved by educating the public on the importance of finding a regulated aesthetics practitioner.

“As one of the first surgeons and cosmetics doctors to train and perfect safe PDO thread treatments in the UK, I feel passionate about putting my 10 years of knowledge and experience to good use. Anything that supports the education, health, and safety of consumers is a worthy cause that I am keen to dedicate my time to. With the steadily increasing popularity of thread-based treatments, it is time to give threads the same care, attention, and airtime to their use in practice as other clinic-based treatments such as injectables. In the right hands, threads can be highly effective for medium to long-term lifting, contouring, and anti-ageing benefits, but sadly, more and more, I am being consulted by both patients and practitioners to correct all manner of issues due to a lack of understanding, experience, and training. We need to stomp out bad practice fast.”

What you should know about Thread Lift:


Threads provide a non-surgical solution to rejuvenate your facial profile (without increasing volume, unlike dermal fillers). A thread lift enhances and refines your features without making your face appear larger, and it avoids the extended recovery time and surgical scars associated with traditional surgery.

Results may vary for everyone, but for the vast majority, the outcomes will be significant, long-lasting, and, in some instances, quite stunning.

While a thread lift can significantly enhance the cheeks and jawline, its benefits are not limited to these facial features. Thread lifts can also rejuvenate the lips by smoothing out fine lines and stimulating collagen production, which adds definition and texture for a more youthful appearance. And let’s not forget about the infamous fox-eye look, which is not going anywhere anytime soon.

While cosmetic surgery often demands weeks of painful recovery, a thread lift usually results in only a few days of tenderness around the treated area. Most discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter NSAIDs. Any swelling is minimal and typically subsides within a few days.
