About Threads Treatment

Thread lifts are an excellent alternative to the traditional facelift. A non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure, thread lifts are used to address the common problem of loss of elasticity on the face which leads to ‘sagging’ in facial areas. Many people prefer a thread lift for facial areas that look less tight over time, including jowls and jawlines, brow lines, under-eye area, forehead and cheeks. A thread lift has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly, producing a subtle but visible ‘lift’ and tightening of the face. The procedure involves the insertion of medical-grade thread material underneath the surface of your skin. The medical professional will ‘pull’ your skin up by tightening the thread. The insertion of the thread triggers the body’s own ‘healing response’ stimulating the production of collagen in the treated areas. Collagen is vital in minimising the ageing process by restoring elasticity to your skin. This procedure takes approximately 45 mins to two hours to complete with healing taking between 4-7 days.

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are resorbable mono threads. Mono threads are designed to perform revitalisation procedures, tighten, thicken the skin, improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles by stimulating the body to develop its own matrix of new collagen over the course of a few months.

They can be used on the face, neck and body. Results of the thread treatment generally last for one to two years.

A specially designed needle is used to minimise patient discomfort when inserting the threads into the skin. Some patients, however, experience mild soreness and swelling for a few days after the procedure.
A thread lift treatment typically takes between 45 mins – 2 hours.
Following your treatment, you will see visible lifting results immediately. However, the longer-term benefits, skin rejuvenation and tightening effects, will depend on your age and your body’s health response to stimulate the production of collagen. Typically patients will see results in 2-3 months. It is recommended that you have 2 treatments in the first 12 months to maximise the treatment effect.
A thread lift will generally last from 12 to 18 months.
Considered, a low-risk procedure, thread lifts require only minimal recovery time. However, during the post-treatment phase, it is not uncommon to experience bruising, swelling, bleeding and slight redness and pain at the site of the thread injection.
