What is a thread lift?
The threads are made from Polylactic acid, a naturally occurring substance that has been used in medicine for over 25 years. The Polylatic threads are inserted into the subcutaneous tissue, which is 5mm underneath the skin’s surface, and boast a special patented design. Over time they gradually stimulate collagen production to restore facial volume and smooth out deep lines and wrinkles.
You will enjoy a dual effect following your Thread Lift treatment, first you will see an instant 1-2cm lift created by the threads. Then six to eight weeks after your treatment you will see a rejuvenating effect due to increased production of collagen, which is caused by the breakdown of the thread. The threads are completely biodegradable and will be safely absorbed by the body over ten to eleven months.
Is a thread lift right for you?
Thread Lifts are recommended for people who are looking to combat signs of ageing caused by reduced collagen production. A Thread Lift is a great alternative to surgery and gives long lasting results, from 12 to 18 months, and can be combined with anti-ageing injections too.
Thread lifts treat a variety of conditions
Hollow cheeks – loss of volume from our cheeks is very ageing but a Thread Lift can trigger collagen production which fills the hollow.
Jowls – as we age and gravity takes its toll, jowls can form around the jawline and can create the effect of excess skin.
Sagging cheeks – the mild to moderate sagging of cheeks is caused by the ageing process but can be rectified by Thread lift treatment.
Deep wrinkles – folds and lines around the nose and chin are caused by fat pads in our face slipping due to age.
