A non-invasive treatment to lift areas of the face that have started to lose volume due to ageing, threadlifts restore shape and boost collagen regrowth.
What are threadlifts?
Threadlifts use specialised surgical threads to lift and rejuvenate sagging skin. These threads can be used to lift skin at the cheeks, jowls, mouth and neck. They are made from a special material that, over time, is broken down as it improves healing and collagen production in the skin.
How do they work?
When placed, the threads re-suspend areas that are sagging. Along the area that enters the tissue, there are cone-like shapes which latch into the tissue as the threads tight, lifting the skin. There’s an immediate improvement as the threads are placed.
The threads cause the tissue to respond as if there was an injury, which is a benefit as the healing process boosts collagen, naturally rejuvenating the skin. The final results appear after 10-14 days. The threads naturally dissolve and the results last around 18 months.
What does the treatment involve?
We will arrange a consultation where you can discuss the areas of concern and what results you are after. We can plan your treatment specifically to your needs. Once you are happy with your treatment plan, we will book in your appointments.
During the procedure, we use local anaesthetic to reduce any discomfort. The threads are inserted using a needle and are tightened, creating the effect that you are after. The lift is noticeable at once. Once we are happy with the position of the threads, they are trimmed.
You may notice mild tenderness after the treatment, but any should fade after a couple of days.
