Barbed threads

Barbed threads have existed for many years now, but I was never interested in them because they were permanent threads. I had no knowledge of how they evolved over time, which could have made a subsequent lifting procedure somewhat problematic.

Today, these barbed threads are biodegradable and I believe they are a genuine alternative to a facelift. My first-hand knowledge of their evolution means that I am able to propose them safely to my patients

A Word from Doctor Hayot

After having administered a very superficial local anaesthetic to the temples, the jawline and the chin, I insert the surgical threads using a very fine needle. These barbed threads create a tightening effect when laced through the dermis and pulled taught. In terms of placement, I direct them in opposite directions (bidirectional): one upwards towards the temple region and the other downwards towards the chin.

Results are instantly visible. Volume at the cheeks is restored and the facial contour has a far more defined shape. I generally combine this treatment with Anti Wrinkles Treatment injections for the optimal anti-aging result.

Who are barbed threads recommended for?

When we age, there is a loss of skin tonicity, which leads to a slackening of the contours of the face and subsequently, the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and furrows.
The threadlift facelift uses barbed threads and offers an efficient remedy for fighting the signs of aging without needing to go through heavy, invasive and irreversible treatment. This is recommended for both men and women who wish to rejuvenate their skin and eliminate their wrinkles in a natural way. It is the ideal treatment for those who are not ready to have a surgical facelift.

This solution is an alternative to aesthetic medicine solutions like hyaluronic acid injections and Anti Wrinkles Treatment injections as well as to other facial rejuvenation surgical procedures which require downtime.

Positioning Barbed Threads

Absorbable barbed threads are an ideal solution for facial rejuvenation without the for an invasive surgical procedure.
This non-invasive technique offers me the opportunity to rejuvenate the face and reduce wrinkles and ptosis in just 30 minutes. After the initial consultation, this treatment can be performed within a lunch hour.

Barbed threads can obtain results close to a mini facelift, results are immediate and there is no downtime.
At the same time, these threads will stimulate the natural production of collagen a few months after they have been put in place. Results are gradual and natural.


  • Results are natural and the procedure is reversible: the effect lasts 18 months.
  • The procedure is quick and painless.
  • The treatment is suitable for patients of all ages and all types of skin; there is no risk of allergy.
  • The fineness of the stitches means that there is no trace of incision and there is no risk of haemorrhaging.
  • Hematoma and bruising is rare. No downtime is required with this method.
  • No downtime is required with this method.
