Threads and Soft Surgical Face Lift
Threads and soft surgeries are a new ‘non-surgical’ facelifts that can be done in almost 30 minutes. The procedure has been described as “the most discreet and effective facelift ever” by numerous cosmetic specialists
What is PDO thread lift?
Thread-lifting is a simple, non-invasive procedure that takes less than 60 minutes, with results that can last up to 2 years.
The bio-absorbable threads form a permanent support structure for the tissue of the face and neck, helping to redefine facial contours and induce collagen production.
The lifting effect is at its peak 4-6 months after the treatment, when the collagen has formed around the threads, suit age between 30-70.
how do thread-lifts work?
After a small injection of local anaesthetic at the entry point, an entry will be made by the ear then fine threads are advanced along pre-marked contours, deep into the facial tissue.
Once the threads are in place, your body starts to produce new bundles of collagen around each thread and this in turn creates a subtle yet effective lift.
There is no scarring and recovery times are a lot less than those associated with traditional surgery. You get an instant improvement but the results are best seen at 3 months
How long do the results last?
A thread lift’s lasting power depends on the age of the patient and how much sagging the thread-lift has corrected.
It should be noted that sagging will return over time, but many doctors report that the results last for anything between 2 and 3 years.
To extend the results it is possible to have additional threads inserted and your doctor can advise you when this is required.
