Thread Lift (Non-Surgical Face Lift)

What Is A Thread Lift / Non-Surgical Face Lift?

Thread Lifts use small needles to insert polydioxanone (PDO) threads into the hypodermis layer of skin, 5mm beneath the skin’s surface. A small hole is made behind the hairline or ear and the threads are pulled along clear contours. These threads cause micro-injuries that encourage skin repair and regeneration through collagen production, tissue tightening and skin lifting over time. This helps improve skin texture, elasticity and reduces the effects of lines, wrinkles and other skin ailments found on the cheeks, jawline, brow and neck. New blood vessels also develop, aiding microcirculation.

Who Is Suitable for Thread Lift / Non-Surgical Face Lift?

Those who may be suffering the effects of ageing, such as:

  • Sagging neck, cheeks and jowls.
  • Drooping eyebrows.
  • Wrinkles.
  • Crow’s Feet.

These effects can cause additional issues:

  • Concern you look older than you are or feel.
  • A reduction in confidence, self-esteem and appeal.
  • Worry that invasive surgeries may make things worse.

Thread Lifts offer a non-surgical alternative that is quick, safe and has long-lasting results.

What You Need To Know About Thread Lift / Non-Surgical Face Lift

  • You will need a pre-treatment consultation to discuss your needs.
  • Avoid alcohol, Vitamin E and Omega Fish oils for 2 days before and after the treatment.
  • The procedure takes approximately 1 hour and is performed under local anaesthetic.
  • You will be given numbing cream to cope with discomfort.
  • It can be combined with anti-ageing injections for extra precaution.


What to Expect after Thread Lift / Non-Surgical Face Lift

  • Your face may appear tighter, but within a week your face will appear natural again.
  • Bruising and swelling may occur, though should subside within 3 days.
  • Avoid putting pressure on the treated area so as not to cause thread misalignment.
  • We recommend taking 2 days off work for recovery.
  • For the first month, it’s advised you sleep on your back to give your face or neck time to settle, and avoid strenuous exercise.
  • Within 1 – 2 months, your skin will be smoother, firmer and look refreshed.
  • After 6 months, the threads will be absorbed by the body and this is when peak lift will occur, lasting 18 months – 2 years.
  • Daily skincare will also prolong the positive effects.


The Benefits of Thread Lift / Non-Surgical Face Lift

  • Thread Lifts are great for facial fat reduction, increasing cheek volume, improving texture and of course, lifting.
  • Gives the face a more defined contour.
  • The threads are safe, biodegradable and provide effects similar to Botox.
  • Does not involve incisions, deep-tissue change or lasers.
  • Does not cause dimpling, over-pulling or marks.
  • Should you not be happy with the results, they can be reversed.
