As aging skin loses its structure (collagen and elastin), it becomes looser and begins to sag, which contributes to a tired and aged look. A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that provides immediate and long-term lifting effects. The thread itself provides an immediate natural lift, but the thread material itself also aims to stimulates natural collagen production over the next few months giving you additional progressive results.
Thread lifts assists with pulling the sagging facial skin on the cheeks, eyebrows and neck, giving a smooth and fresh look.
I now offer PDO Threads!
PDO Threads are made from Polydioxanone – an absorbable polymer. The Threads are inserted into the sub dermal level, in a mesh-like pattern, which activates collagen synthesis producing a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect. This effect lasts for 6-12 months.
The threads become a support structure for your face, allowing collagen production to increase. Overtime, the threads are absorbed by the body. Results may be seen in 6 weeks and will continue to improve over 2 to 6 months. While the threads slowly dissolve, the collagen boost is a long-term benefit, the lifting effect is temporary, lasting anywhere from one to two years.
PDO threads are safe and there is virtually no downtime. They are minimally invasive and can also be used multiple times and in conjunction with other treatments such as dermal fillers.
A Thread lift procedure is advantageous over a surgical face lift in various factors:
Minimally invasive procedure with local anaesthetic
Immediate results (lifting effect)
Long-lasting results (the threads stimulate your natural collagen)
Painless and short-duration procedure
Affordable procedure appropriate for mild sagging tissue
Dissolvable after 12–18 months rather than lifelong permanent thread lifts.
