Many patients wish for a facial rejuvenation without having to undergo an operation under general anaesthesia.

A unique surgical technique makes all this possible. An innovative treatment that tightens and outlines the skin without scar formation.

Dr. Christian Lenz is one of the first certified doctors in Munich to offer this innovative technology and at the same time he trains medical specialists in applying thread lifting.

For whom is thread lifting suitable?

Thread lifting is perfectly suitable for both women and men with:

• slight to moderate signs of skin slackening in the facial-, eyebrow- and cheeks area

• nasolabial folds

• marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth to jawline)

• sagging neck

The material the threads are made of has been used over many years now in biomedical and pharmaceutical products (e.g. seams, bars, screws, orthopaedic oins and nails).

In addition, the material shwows an excellent biocompatibility and it is also biodegradable.

The results are instantaneously visible and last considerably longer than one year.

After an immediate lifting effect you will notice an additional lifting in the treated area in the course of the next 2-3 month.

As the threads start to dissolve collagen is formed which is responsible for a firm, taut skin.

A thread lifting treatment takes approx. 1 hour and can be performed on an outpatient basis in the clinic.

How does thread lifting work?

Depending on the findings of the examination and on the desired results, we use two different types of threads: MINT Threads (Minimal Invasive Nonsurgical Threads) and Silhouette Soft Threads.

Thread Lifting is a minimally invasive and gentle technique especially when compared to the „traditional” facelift.

A thin and absorbable thread is placed under the skin with a very fine needle. These extremely thin threads have cones or barbs to lift the skin from below and to tighten it. At the same time the threads stimulate the body to produce collagen.

MINT Threads

MINT threads are characterized by pronounced hooks anchoring in the sub-skin. This allows relifting sunken parts of the face, e.g. eyebrows, and leads to an overall more open and friendly look. Moreover, the lifting of the cheeks leads to a flattening of the nasolabial fold and hence to an improvement of the jawline contouring.

Compared to other hook-threads MINT threads have a unique design which allows lifting defined skin areas visibly and in a targeted way. As a result an instantly visible effect sets in, which further develops in the course of the following three months due to the skin’s own collagen production and the related new creation of skin.

As an additional benefit the skin texture is significantly refined during the first three months. The result: a youthful look.

Minimal invasive non-surgical threads (MINT) are the latest innovation from South Korea. Thanks to their unique design they have clear advantages over other threads.

MINT threads with hooks of Polydioxanone (PDO) are approved by the FDA.

The thickness of the threads as well as their patented barbs allow to exert an even stronger pull to lift different facial areas.

Like all threads MINT threads support the creation of collagen in the treated areas.

Silhouette Soft Threads

Besides a light lifting effect, the main focus of the Silhouette Soft Threads is to boost the production of new collagen which significantly improves the elasticity of the skin.

Typical areas of application are the so called laughter lines – vertically running fine wrinkles in the lower cheek area primarily occurring when laughing.

Silhouette Soft Threads are absorbable threads with bidirectional cones. Each cone has an even 360 degree area forming an anchorage point when inserted in the subcutaneous tissue. The results normally last one year or longer.

It is also possible to combine both threads. Silhouette Soft Threads as well as Meso Threads degrade in the course of approx. nine months which does not mean, however, that the thread lift has to be repeated after only one year.

In practice most patients usually wish a re-treatment after approx. two years. B y repeated applications this non-surgical treatment allows to prevent skin ageing and the loss of elasticity.

A juvenile facial silhouette can therefore be preserved for many years. So it makes sense to undergone a thread lift even at the age of forty.

Wrinkle treatment and wrinkle removal without surgery

Wrinkle treatment and wrinkle removal with innovative meso-filaments rejuvenates the appearance of the skin and reduces the size of pores. In the video you can see how this method is applied to a patient.

How long do thread lifting results last?

A tightening can already be observed right after the treatment. While the threads degrade in the course of the following approx. nine month the skin produces collagen.

This leads to an additional lifting, supporting and tightening effect. As a consequence of the collagen production the thread lifting result can last from two to three years.

Important things to observe before and after a non surgical thread lifting


In a consultation meeting you will of course be informed about all options a thread lifting offers as well as about the different types of anaesthesia.

Thread lifting will be performed on an outpatient basis. You will therefore be able to leave the practice the very same day after approx. one hour.

Two weeks prior to the treatment you should not take any blood-thinning drugs like aspirin nor drink ginseng tea or green tea to keep the risk of bruising as low as possible.


After the thread lifting the treated areas may be slightly swollen. You may also observe easy bruising. Please avoid direct sunlight and facial treatments for 2 or 3 weeks.

“Downtime” is not be expected so that in theory you can immediately resume your work. You should, however, avoid strong facial movements for the first days after the treatment as they could have an adverse influence on the results of the thread lifting.

Duration of thread lifting?

Depending on the treated areas and on the number of threads inserted, you should calculate approx. one hour.

When can I return to my daily routine after a thread lift?

As for activities without any physical exertion you should be able to work the next day. Light swellings and bruising will subside after approx. 3 days

Are there any risks or side effects to be considered during and after a thread lifting?

The degree of risk of this treatment is very minor. However, there are some possible side effects like light swellings, bruising and minor complaints in the treated areas. These can be alleviated with ice packs, Ibuprofen or Novalgin as needed.

What are the costs of a thread lifting?

This strongly depends on the treated areas and the number of inserted threads needed to achieve the desired results.

Can I wear make up after a thread lifting?

You can wear makeup or apply sun cream or body moisturizing cream right after the thread lifting. However, you should not rub or pull your skin to strong in the treated areas. Light bruising can be covered with makeup.

Can I expect natural-looking results after a thread lifting?

Yes, absolutely. Thread lifting allows achieving a lifting effect of soft skin tissues without surgery and hence leads to a natural result. Botox and Hyaluron for their part are only used to reduce wrinkles.

What can I do to get the best results after a thread lifting?

Immediately after the procedure, you should avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activities for a at least a few days until the slight swellings have subsided.

We will provide you with small ice packs to accelerate the subsiding of the swollen areas and to give you a pleasant feeling.

You can wash your face gently immediately afterwards, but avoid to rub or pull your skin to strong in the treated areas during the first 2-3 weeks after the treatment.

This also applies to men when shaving
