A thread lift uses specialised surgical threads to lift sagging skin, giving a tighter and more youthful appearance. The threads are made from Polylactic acid, a naturally occurring substance. The Polylactic threads gradually stimulate collagen production to restore facial volume and smooth out deep lines and wrinkles. A thread facelift is a convenient and less invasive alternative to traditional surgical facelift.
- Tightens and lifts saggy facial skin
- Stimulates collagen growth
- Safe with minimal downtime
The procedure typically requires about one hour.
Our doctor will evaluate your skin condition and then decide on the threads and mark strategic points on your face as guides to create that natural rejuvenated look suitable for you.
Before the treatment, our therapist will gently cleanse the areas to be treated. Local anaesthetic will then be used to numb the target areas.
After numbing takes place, the doctor will proceed to insert the threads through the marked guides. The threads are adjusted along the way to fit the face, optimising the lift for desired results.
The marks will be gently wiped away and an ice pack will be placed over the treated areas to reduce any minor and temporary discomfort.
Q: Does the treatment hurt?
You may experience some mild discomfort during treatment, however the local anaesthetic will help to minimise any pain caused and to prevent any soreness.
Q: How long does it last?
The results can last up to 18 months. The threads are completely biodegradable and will be safely absorbed by the body over time. Factors such as exposure to the sun and lifestyle choices may affect how long results last. An ongoing effective daily skincare regime is crucial to help promote and achieve optimum results. Wear a minimum of SPF 30 daily to help protect your skin against sun damage and ageing.
Q: When will I see results?
Your skin will look immediately firmer, with lines and wrinkles appearing softer. Gradual results will also be seen over time as the Polylactic acid gets to work for a natural look. Collagen production will be stimulated and lost volume will be restored.
