You can achieve immediate results naturally! No Surgery, No Scars, No Bruising

Thread lifting is a non-surgical facial treatment that is designed to rejuvenate your face and neck area by tightening and lifting the skin, making it look younger and smoother. This subtle face lift is achieved by safely inserting small nylon-like threads under the skin, then tightening and pulling back to re-suspend any sagging skin. 

This technique adds a supportive structure to skin which has begun the ageing process, working to improve loose facial skin, enhance features and defy gravity.

Is Thread Lifting for Me?

Thread lifts can be used to treat any area of the face and neck. This treatment is ideal for those between 30 – 50 years of age, who are experiencing mild to moderate signs of loose or sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and signs of ageing.

If you are not suitable for surgery due to a medical condition, then thread lifts are an excellent option for consideration. The procedure only involves local anaesthetic as opposed to general anaesthetic.

How Many Treatments Will I need?

Thread lifts are a safe and non-invasive procedure and after the sutures have dissolved, you can repeat a thread-lift if necessary.

You may require maintenance lifts every 6 – 12 months, depending on your specific needs.

Does a Thread Lift Hurt?

There will be a low level of discomfort during the procedure, however local anaesthetic is applied around the suture site. After the procedure, you may experience discomfort, swelling and mild bruising around the area. This is normal and will subside.

post treatment care

Recovery time after a thread lifting procedure is minimal. You can experience mild discomfort in the first two days, this is normal and will start to recede.

To obtain optimal results during recovery we suggest:

  • Do not touch or wash your face for 12 hours post treatment
  • Ice the treated area for up to 5-7 days if you experience slight bruising or swelling
  • Restrict facial movements on the first day and ensure to rest for a full day after treatment
  • Refrain from heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for 3 weeks after treatment. Straining or pressure of any kind can misalign the threads.
  • Refrain from pulling, massaging, scrubbing, squeezing or exfoliating your skin for at least 3 weeks.
  • Over the counter pain killers can be taken to relieve any mild pain, however avoid aspirin for 2 weeks after treatment.
  • Avoid applying heavy makeup or facial creams for up to 48 hrs.
  • Avoid drinking with a straw or chewing gum for up to 2 weeks.
  • Sleep on your back to prevent swelling.
  • Do not undergo any dental procedures within 3 weeks post treatment.
