Our new threads have been used for decades as stitches for wound closure, and are now being used for mini non-surgical face lifts. They work by stimulating your own body’s natural healing response, which increases collagen, blood vessels, oxygen and fibrin to tighten the skin and iron out fine lines.
There are 2 types:
For skin rejuvenation, tightening and reconditioning without lifting. These can be used just about anywhere! They are placed quite superficial and are so fine, yet have a huge effect on the body’s own collagen stimulation to iron out fine lines, oxygenate dark areas such as under the eyes, and create youthful skin. There is minimal discomfort following treatment and the effects continue over time.
“non surgical face lift”
For reduction of mild – moderate skin laxity and deeper lines by providing mechanical support and physically lifting the tissue.
These are placed deeper and require local anaesthetic. The threads are placed for a natural looking and immediate lift, most commonly across the cheeks to lift from the jawline to reduce deep lines and sagging from cheeks, nose to mouth and corners of the mouth, as well as for eyebrow lifting. The threads naturally dissolve within 9 months as the effect gets greater and greater as the body’s natural healing process continues, lasting a couple of years. Following treatment, there may be slight discomfort and a feeling of tightness in the area treated.
For best results, a thread lift will follow cheek fillers used to add volume to the face first.
