Thread lifting is a non-surgical method to lift the skin. It is a technique designed to lift and tighten sagging skin by inserting special threads which stimulate collagen production in deeper layers of our skin. Thread lifting is ideal for people who have lost firmness or have mild sagging in the areas including the brows, cheeks, neck, jowls, around the mouth, and the nose.
The thread is introduced via a fine needle under the skin (virtually painless with local anaesthetic) and gradually dissolves stimulating the body’s own collagen to tighten in the direction the lift is desired. The results create an effective, natural looking, and youthful appearance that typically last 2 years.
Thread Lifts can be used alone or in combination with Sculptra® so as to both “fill” and “lift” the skin visibly taking years off mature looking skin.
Life Healthcare Group uses PDO twisted threads to perform the thread lift. Local anaesthesia is applied to the skin before introducing the thread via a fine needle. These threads dissolve and are a one-time treatment. The results are immediately visible and continue to improve as collagen production is stimulated.
