Move aside, lip fillers—lip thread lifts have entered the chat! Also known as lip threading, this nonsurgical procedure is quickly growing in popularity as of late due to its resulting natural, lifted look. The client pictured here is obsessed with the nine lip threads she received that cost her less than $300—and the results last for two-ish years. Here, we dive into the trend and its benefits.
What Is the Difference Between Lip Threading and Lip Fillers?
While lip fillers add volume to your lips, a lip thread lift adds curve and definition, especially to the cupid’s bow area of your lip. Think of it like lip liner—but better! The result also appears more natural instead of the pouty look that lip fillers typically provide.
How Does Lip Threading Work?
This noninvasive procedure involves using small dissolvable threads around your lips, jaw, and jowls to smooth out fine lines around your mouth. It also helps boost collagen production! The more threads you add, the more height and/or volume. The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes—which is why it’s also gained the nickname “lunch lift.”
What Are the Side Effects?
As the procedure involves the insertion of a needle, slight swelling is common. Bruising is possible as well, but should only last for a day or two.
