Thread Lifting


A subtle and effective non surgical face lift

Thread lifting treatment involves using special surgical threads to lift saggy skin and produce a visible tightening effect. It is becoming an increasingly popular treatment due to the minimally invasive and highly effective nature. Thread lifts can be used on any part of the face, including the cheeks, forehead, jowls and mouth.

How does thread lifting work?

Thread lifting is used to suspend sagging areas of skin, pulling it back slightly to produce a more youthful tightening effect. The procedure also promotes collagen and elastin production in the skin, as the tissue responds in the same way as following an injury and begins the healing process. Collagen has a rejuvenating effect and can improve both your skin and your confidence.

How long do the results last?

Following treatment, you will be able to see immediate results, with your final results visible around 10 days after the procedure. The threads are absorbed into your skin after around three months and the rejuvenated lifting effect lasts around 18 months. The treatment can then be repeated to boost your results.
