Everything you need to know about non surgical threading facelift


Xline Threads, 2022 the complete guide for safe, easy, effective thread lifting


Skin is the largest organ in the body. It needs more collagen and elastin to look healthy and keep its structure.

With aging, your body produces less amount of collagen. So, signs of aging start to appear. You may notice annoying wrinkles and sagging skin. 


Getting rid of these signs was a big concern in the past. Now, Youthful and shiny looks have become easier with non surgical facelift threading. 


What is non surgical facelift threading?


XLINE  face lift threading is a cosmetic procedure that replaces facelift surgery. It used threads to smooth away moderate to severe facial lines and lift sagging skin.


Different types and sizes of needles or cannulas insert these threads into the skin to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and get a lifted appearance.


Non surgical facelift threading has been around since the 1990s. But XLINE's continuous innovation in threads technology and techniques has increased its popularity in recent years. 


How does non surgical facelift threading work?


XLINE Threads are inserted into your skin and make it more lifted and tight. 

XLINE threads minimize fine lines, wrinkles and promote collagen for cellular renewal.


There are a lot of absorbable polymers of threads; PDO-PLLA-PCL-PLACL, and all are safe and effective in skin rejuvenation. 

But, XLINE Threads mainly developing PDO (Polydioxanone) and PLACL (Poly-L-Lactide-e-Caprolactone) threads which are more effective for mechanical non  surgical lifting and more durable because of the new XLINE polymerising technology which result in more strong threads. 


There are various types, models, and sizes of both PDO and PLACL threads;

mono threads, barbed cog threads, screw threads, molded threads, and dual needle threads. There are also threads with sharp needles, blunt cannula and LShape blunt Cannula.

Other threads include PLLA and PCA threads, which stay in your body and stimulate collagen, but are less effective for mechanical lifting because of the soft and weak tensile strength of the polymers.


Each type is designed to fit the target area and get the most promising results. For example, PDO threads are more convincing in instant lifting tissue. In contrast, PLLA and PCA threads have high durability to induce more collagen.

Finally, XLINE PLACL threads are the ideal polymer that induce the maximum collagen production with the longest durability for 2-3 years, and as well strongly lifting the saggy skin.

The result duration depends on several factors; 

  • The technology of threads: XLINE Threads usually gives longer duration than other products of the same polymer, due to the stronger tensile of threads and better specifications.

  • The number of threads: using less threads than needed will result in less effect, and less duration. The doctor should use the recommended  technique and threads for each indication to ensure the durability of the result. 

  • The Technique: even using the right threads with the right number, but wrong technique like wrong level or wrong anchoring point will result in less effect and duration. XLINE Threads ensure the efficacy of XLINE Techniques and XCodes to be the best in the world.

  • The age of the patient can affect the result and duration as well; A study published in the Aesthetic surgery journal showed that younger people get results for 3 or 4 years because their skin were healthier during the procedure time, resulting in more vital response and stronger anchoring to the tissue than older patients.
