Thread Lift in Houston TX


What Is Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a type of non-surgical facelift that provides dramatic results with minimal invasion to the body, and at lower costs than a surgical procedure. Because thread lifts require no incisions, there is no scarring to worry about, results look completely natural, and downtime is greatly reduced in comparison to more invasive surgical procedures. Doctors and patients alike are thrilled with the results of these procedures, which allow patients to save time and money, as well as reducing risks associated with surgery.

A thread lift is performed using surgical sutures made of the same safe and absorbable material used in heart surgeries, which is among the safest materials that may be implanted into the human body. Thread lift procedures are provided in the Houston area at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, a full service aesthetic medical center under the direction of respected plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo.

Two thread lift procedures have been recently approved by the FDA for use in non-surgical facelifts and minimally invasive neck lift procedures: the Silhouette Instalift and NovaThreads. Both procedures are designed to lift facial tissue and produce a younger-looking facial appearance. Both are excellent micro-invasive methods for lifting and rejuvenating. Both may be combined with other treatments, such as Botox or dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments or microneedling.

These procedures may be performed on any area of the face or body, takes 30 to 45 minutes, and requires only local anesthesia, which means that patients may resume normal activities immediately following treatment. Most patients require no pain medication following treatment.


NovaThreads™ Thread Lift

NovaThreads are absorbable threads that are absorbed by the body within four to six months after treatment. These threads may be plain or curved sutures, or contain tiny barbs that lift the skin. These threads once inserted into the skin, not only serve to gently pull the skin tighter, but also contributed to increased collagen production, improving skin tone at the cellular level.

NovaThreads may be used to create both lifting effects and skin rejuvenation through collagen production, and results last from six months to a year, so follow-up procedures must be repeated periodically in order to maintain optimal results.


Tread Lift With Silhouette® Instalift™

The Silhouette Instalift also uses absorbable threads, but these also contain absorbable trumpet-shaped cones designed to anchor and engage skin tissue, producing a lifting and plumping effect.

The Instalift may be performed in various areas, but the treatment is especially ideal for lifting and increasing volume in facial tissue, particularly in the area of the brow, cheeks, corners of the mouth, jaw line, and neck. It is also effective at treating skin laxity or crepe paper skin in areas such as the arms and above the knees. The Instalift™ longer lasting results and follow-up treatments may be required after one or two years.


Ideal Candidates for Thread Lift

A thread lift is an ideal preventative treatment on patients showing early signs of aging and is ideal for men and women between the ages of 30 and 60 whose skin is just starting to show signs of skin laxity and sagging. Those with more excessive sagging may require a traditional facelift.

Our Testimonials


I had the best experience at Dr. Bachilo’s office!
Bellaire, TX

I decided to try Coolsculpting for the first time on my chin. I was a bit nervous to have the procedure to get rid of my double chin, but OMG I can already see it working! Dr. Bachilo was awesome! She explained how everything works, what the machine does and the sensation I would experience during and after the treatment. I’ve made my appointment to do Coolsculpting on the belly next.

Great doctor
Houston, TX

Last month I went in to see Dr. Bachilo to get Dysport injections for my wrinkles and fillers in my cheeks and chin. I was very worried as it was my first time having this procedure done, I didn't know what to expect but Dr. Bachilo was very patient with me she took her time explaining and answering all my questions she made me feel very comfortable.

Wow! I am so pleased with Dr.Bachilo’s expertise!
Houston, TX

I was so thankful for her honesty and knowledge of products/procedures that I was wanting to have done. She guided me to the correct breast implant size and recovery was a breeze. When it came to my concern of wrinkles and lines she was extremely understanding and actually listened to me. She explained the different fillers and Botox products, which I am so pleased in everything she did to make me look younger!!! I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so!! Just go and she how wonderful she is!

Exceeded my expectations
Sugar Land, TX

I believe it is essential to find a professional who is in tune with patients’ needs, responsive, can perform the necessary measures and do what is best for the client without heavily promoting additional services. Dr. Bachilo not only met my meticulous expectations, but also exceeded, so I will be back as needed.

Facial Fillers
Houston, TX

I hated wrinkles on my forehead, and nasal labial folds. I had filler injected around nasal labial folds and around corner of my mouth. Botox injection into my forehead. I couldn't be happier with the results. After many comments about why I look so much younger I will definitely have it done again.
