Thread Lift by Dr. OBT at Halcyon Medispa

At Halcyon Medispa, our expert Plastic & Aesthetic Surgeon, Dr. Osman Bashir Tahir (Dr. OBT), performs the Thread Lift treatment, a non-surgical facelift technique. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses sutures or threads to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. This treatment stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, improving skin elasticity and promoting a youthful appearance.

Two Types of Thread Lift Treatment Offered

At Halcyon Medispa, we offer two types of treatment – COG and Sugar Threads.

COG Threads

(Cogs or barbs) threads lift the skin and also stimulate collagen production in the treated areas. These threads have tiny barbs or cogs embedded in the skin, providing lift and support to sagging skin. They consist of biodegradable materials and dissolve over time. COG threads can last up to 1-2 years, providing long-lasting results.

Sugar Threads

Sugar Threads are another type of treatment that uses threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). Medical professionals have used PDO threads for over 20 years, and they are safe and biodegradable. The practitioner gently inserts these threads into the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. Over time, the threads dissolve, leaving behind a natural-looking lift. Sugar Threads can last up to 6-9 months, making them an ideal choice for those who are looking for a more temporary lift.
