Thread lifts have decreased in popularity lately. They were very popular when they first came on the seen. Also known as the lunchtime lift.
I have seen some good results, but the improvement is much more subtle vs. a facelift. A facelift is a much more extreme measure, and we have all seen facelifts that make the individual look unfavorable (i.e.: surprised look, skin pulled too tight, etc.). If you do not need such an extreme procedure (not too much sagging or minimal ptosis (sagging due to weak muscles)), than perhaps the thread lift is for you.
Many spas offer this service, but beware. I would go with an accredited board certified surgeon.
