Lip Thread Lift

What is a lip thread lift?

A lip lift involves inserting threads into a tiny incision to gently pull the upper portion of the lips. It is a quick and straightforward procedure with immediate results.

Using soluble threads, this nonsurgical procedure can help reduce wrinkles around your mouth, create the appearance of fuller lips, and boost the natural collagen production in the area for a more youthful-looking pout.

Lip thread lifts vs lip fillers

A lip thread lift is a procedure where dissolvable sutures are used to lift the corners of a drooping mouth and to help smooth out surrounding wrinkles. On the other hand, lip fillers are injectables designed to add or restore volume. Think a full, sexy pout. 

However, it’s possible to get both done for complete rejuvenation.

How does a lip thread lift procedure work?

The procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. The steps include numbing the area, marking out the points of entry, and then inserting the threads to lift parts of the lips. 

Basically, a puncture hole will be created in the skin near the edge of your lip. In order to insert the thread, our aesthetician will use a sterilized cannula prepackaged with a thread and insert it into the puncture. Another way to do this is by using a fine needle attached to the thread and inserting it directly into the skin instead of making a puncture. 

The same procedure can be done on your lower lip as well.

Different types of lip thread lifts

  1. NOVA Threads

    Patients who wish to enhance the definition and contour of their lips can benefit from this procedure.

    This procedure helps minimize fine lines along the mouth. Once the threads are in position, your body will start to produce collagen as they’re absorbed, leading to a more youthful look in the treated area that lasts months.

  2. Silhouette Instalift Threads

    These sutures are made of PLGA and have cones that grip the underlying tissues better, resulting in a noticeable lift.

Should you get a lip thread lift?

A lip thread lift is ideal for patients who want to restore a more youthful look to aging, thinning lips, but would prefer a more natural result.

However, it’s always best to get a lip thread lift from an experienced and trained treatment provider.

At Luxe, our aestheticians are both well-trained and highly experienced and have provided countless patients with unique treatment plans to give them the results they want and deserve – in the safest way possible.

Keralase is a revolutionary new treatment for hair loss (improved over PRP) using Lutronic Ultra laser and KeraFactor. KeraFactor serum has proprietary biometric synthetic versions of growth factors and proteins which promote hair growth. Ultra alone showed significant improvements in scalp revitalization.

Lutronic Ultra laser creates tiny “microchannels” in the scalp which help to increase the absorption of KeraFactor. KeraFactor is then applied and massaged into the scalp. There is minimal pain, no bleeding, and no downtime. No needles or shots are required.


KeraFactor has highly concentrated levels of growth hormones and proteins that specifically boost hair growth and affects all 4 stages of the hair life cycle. Kerafactor is coated with nano-liposomes which aid its absorption, allowing for enhanced delivery of growth hormones directly to the hair follicles. Each nano-liposome contains thousands of each specific growth factor.

Platelets have variable amounts of growth factors depending on the genetics and health conditions of the person. Platelets also contain growth factors that actually inhibit hair growth. Platelet therapy requires a blood draw, centrifuge, followed by multiple injections into the scalp. Even after numbing medication, the injections can be painful and lead to bruising or hematomas.
