threads in st. louis

Reverse sagging skin to reveal youthful skin.

Lift and restore your face without going under the knife with PDO or InstaLift threads at The Lifestyle Center. Threads are an innovative way to give a natural lift to the skin on your face, neck, and body, helping you appear years younger. By inserting the threads beneath the skin, we’re able to pull and shape your face to reduce skin laxity and other signs of aging.

Extremely safe

Threads are medical-grade sutures that are so safe, surgeons even use them for open-heart surgery! After 4 to 6 months, your skin will absorb the threads.

Instant results

The moment you step out of our office, you’ll notice the skin-tightening effects of your PDO thread procedure. Even after the threads are gone, you’ll gain long-lasting results with the help of collagen stimulation.

Zero downtime

With threads in St. Louis, you won’t have to worry about taking off work or extended periods of downtime. When you’re done, you can return to your regular daily activities.

Ready to know which thread lift is right for you?

InstaLift Threads

Do you know how you suck your cheeks in & them upward to get the look you want? With Insta Lift in St. Louis, you can achieve this result without having to manipulate your face. This innovative FDA-cleared non-surgical treatment is a great alternative to filler and going under the knife.

PDO Threads

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin).

Step-by-Step Process


You may notice some slight bruising, but you won’t have to worry about downtime. Within 4 to 6 months, your skin will absorb the threads.

How it works

A thread lift will do an excellent job of pulling the jawline, jowls, and chin right back up close to the bone, instead of drooping. A thread lift creates a much more youthful-looking facial profile without the need for dramatic surgery.

Lift and tighten

Using the Novathread needle, we insert the PDO threads directly under the skin. They work as a natural framework for your skin.


Within 4 to 6 months, your skin will absorb the threads, boosting the healing process and promoting collagen production. Even after the threads dissolve, the new collagen will continue fighting against signs of aging for long-lasting results.
