What Is A Thread Lift?

Thread lift is an aesthetic treatment that requires the use of PDO threads to non-surgically rejuvenate the face and neck.

PDO threads, also known as Polydioxanone threads, are very fine threads that are inserted underneath the skin, which then anchor and lift the skin, creating a smoothed and boosted appearance. PDO is completely safe, and has been used for many years in medical practice, including uses as dissolvable sutures. During treatment, the threads are placed and remain under the skin, and the small structures attached to the threads help to pull back sagging areas of skin. This gives an instant lift and tightening to the treated area, while the threads also trigger the skin’s structures to regenerate, creating lasting benefits for the skin over time as well.

How long does Thread Lift treatment take?

The procedure takes 60-90 minutes to complete, but every person is different and this will be discussed in your personalised consultation.

What will the treatment involve?

Following an individual consultation and examination; a dental block is administered, or local anaesthetic is applied to the area to numb the skin for several minutes. Then the thread is inserted via a cannula into position. Once tightened and correctly aligned, the thread is secured and left in place, creating an immediate lift in many cases.

How long does it last for?

The results of our thread lift procedure typically last from 12-18 months. However, ultimately the duration is different for each patient, and often depends on a number of individual factors including lifestyle, age, your individual skin type and how quickly your body naturally breaks down the threads.

Are Thread Lifts Safe?

Thread lifts are an ideal alternative to the traditional surgical facelift where the signs of skin ageing are more pronounced, often in older patients. Thread lifts give you a lifted and smoothed appearance without the need for any general anaesthetic, extensive recovery time or surgical intervention, making them perfect for a more subtle lifting procedure and far safer than traditional surgery.

The PDO threads we use are completely biodegradable and will be completely broken down after six to twelve months in a safe and comfortable procedure that doesn’t release any harmful chemicals or substances. Even after the threads in the area are dissolved, the neocollagenesis will continue, to keep the beautiful, lifted results for even longer.
