About the treatment
Threadlift, is a new treatment for prominent signs of ageing that results in a double lift and regenerating collagen effect. It is a minor/minimally invasive surgical alternative .
It is not a face lift but really helps with skin tightening .to a facelift and is growing in popularity, provides a discreet approach to achieving a fresher, younger-looking appearance.
As we age, a loss of collagen and elastin in our skin leads to progressive looser facial tone and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. As a result of losing elasticity of skin and a natural thinning of the face through loss of fat, this creates hollowed upper cheeks and heaviness above the jaw line (jowl) and around the chin (marionette lines). The thread lift procedure aims to obtain volumisation, lifting and skin tightening in any area the sutures are placed.
How does the treatment work?
This treatment uses PDO threads to support and lift the skin. This is the same thread used in surgeries and is very safe.
PDO threads are injected into the skin and act as a scaffold to support and tighten areas of sagging skin. The threads can be used to shape the face and tighten wrinkled skin. They also stimulate collagen and fibroblast activity.
The procedure takes approximately 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the number of areas treated.
The treated area is numbed with a topical cream prior to treatment. This minimises any pain or discomfort.
Do the threads need to be removed after the treatment?
No, the threads are re-absorbed within 4 to 6 months following treatment. The structure created by the threads continues to hold for a further 15-24 months.
How soon will I see results?
Considerable improvement will also appear after 2-3 months when new collagen is produced. The skin will become more smooth and radiant with fine lines diminished.
Is there any downtime with this treatment?
Many patients experience little to no downtime with minimal swelling or bruising. However, this can vary from patient to patient.
