Thread facelift treatments are a minimally invasive procedure using dissolvable PDO threads (Polydioxanone threads – a medical grade thread used for suturing for over 30 years) which are broken down naturally by the body over time.
PDO Thread Lifts are designed to rejuvenate, regenerate and improve your facial structure, giving you the same benefits as a facelift, but without the need for surgery.
PDO therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. It involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small cannulas.
These threads remain implanted in the skin causing micro-injuries that stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue contraction. After six months, the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place.
The procedures is usually carried out using a local anaesthetic and takes between 45 and 60 minutes depending on the treatment area. Side effects are minimal but may include swelling and bruising that lasts 2-3 days, and patients can continue with normal activities immediately after.
PDO therapy can be used on the cheeks, brow, jawline, neck, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs, and abdomen. The lifting effect is at its peak after 6 months when collagen has formed around the threads and lasts between 2-3 years.
We also do a finance option, with a deposit and monthly direct debit transactions.
Why should I have this treatment?
The procedure is most effective on skin that has minimal sagging and offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area. If you are looking for results that are more effective and long lasting than Botox and other fillers, then a thread lift is the ideal choice.
How does the face age?
A young face tends to be shaped like a ‘V”. With age the skin loses its structure, elasticity, volume, muscles and even bone mass. This means the classical youthful V-shape is reversed and becomes more like an inverted ‘V’.
The treatment method V SOFT LIFT aims to restore the youthful facial V shape. This is achieved with small, thin threads positioned in the subdermal tissue.
V SOFT LIFT offers a triple response enabling stimulation of collagen production, a durable lifting effect and tighter, firmer skin. For todays patients looking for the natural look.
How does a THREADLIFT treatment work?
Many thin threads attached to needles are inserted into the dermis in a meshwork pattern, feeling somewhat like a filler treatment. The threads are placed at specific sites for the desired lift and the needles removed. The threads provide lift and reproduces youthful facial features including thicker skin. The treatment is performed with a local anaesthetic similar to that used for minor surgery. The results are immediately visible after the procedure although the full results take around two months to develop.
What is the advantage of THREADFACELIFT treatment?
VSOFT LIFT addresses some problems associated with facial ageing that are only otherwise dealt with by invasive surgery, in particular sagging aspects of the low face, neck and jaw line. V SOFT LIFT thus offers anti-ageing solutions for those not wishing to undergo surgery. Although the results cannot be compared to surgery the treatment is more affordable and tolerable. The treatment can be combined with other treatments eg fillers and toxin and can be performed over a period of time rather than all at once.
What are the risks?
Thread lifts can cause minor side effects such as infection, bruising, swelling, tenderness, numbness and slight asymmetry.
