THREAD LIFT

WHAT IS A THREAD FACELIFT?

A threading facelift is a less invasive option to traditional facelifts for people experiencing signs of aging. The procedure can be done within 1-2 hours with anesthesia. During a facelift threading, the surgeon inserts thin threads into the face through tiny entry points. These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face giving a rejuvenated appearance.

CANDIDATES FOR THREAD FACELIFT

The suitable candidate is within 40 to 60 who have good skin tone, begin to experience sagging in their face or neck but do not have drooping facial areas or loose skin that might require surgical facelift surgery. If signs of aging are minimal, a thread lift may be a good option to make cosmetic enhancements while avoiding surgical facelifts.

PDO THREAD LIFT

NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT
POO threads offer the very latest technology for soft, natural-looking thread lifting is a non-invasive procedure. The POO thread lift is designed for effective facial rejuvenation without surgery, which means less downtime at a comparatively lower cost with lower risk and minimal aftercare following treatment

The procedure helps to reverse the key effects of aging such as wrinkles, saggy skin, deep creases, folds, and poor skin texture. It can improve the profile of a flabby face, raise cheeks or eyebrows, help to prevent eye bags and laughter lines, lift sagging neck skin, raise the smile and angle of the mouth and even tackle smoker’s lines.

The non-invasive procedure yields amazing rejuvenation results and is practically painless. It leaves no scar or cuts at all.

WHAT ARE PDO THREADS?

PDO stands for Polydioxanone and this refers to the material used to make the threads used in the lifting procedure. The PDO threads offer several specific benefits:

  • Threads produce Β no damage to the tissue

  • Excellent safety record – the same thread used in cardiac and other surgical sutures

  • Ultra-fine threads are naturally broken down within the body over 6-8 months, although the results naturally β€˜wear off’ over around 18 months transparent material invisible within the skin

Results of PDO Thread Lift

The PDO lift has a series of benefits

  • naturally improves skin elasticity and texture

  • reduces wrinkles

  • produces more defined facial contours

  • rejuvenating and lifting effect

  • covers prominent forehead veins

The mono threads have a screw system that creates asymmetrical and even lifting effects with multi-directional cogs which avoid the danger of over-pulling or dimpling.

PLLA THREADS

PLLA stands for poly-L -lactic acid, a substance that has been used for many years in Sculptra, an injectable facial rejuvenation treatment that works to stimulate collagen for a younger look.

Now PLLA is available in a thread format, which is used in a very different way.

Compared to injectable treatments, thread lifting is a procedure that directly addresses the structure of the face through an immediate lifting effect, accompanied by a longer-term regeneration of collagen and natural volume.

Lifting Effect
Threads are carefully positioned beneath the skin, then manipulated to tighten and lift the tissues. This is a gentle, non-invasive procedure that provides some of the benefits of a facelift – tighter, firmer skin with better definition to the facial features – but with much more subtle and natural-looking results.

Regenerating Effect
PLLA threads also work within the skin to stimulate renewal and rejuvenation, adding natural volume which tightens the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through the production of collagen and improved blood circulation, contracting the tissue. The regenerative effect is gradual and happens over the 2-3 months following treatment. When the threads are in place, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body so that it produces new collagen. This boosts volume in the skin, making it appear firmer. The volume builds gradually and naturally for a fresher, more youthful look.

Results of PLLA Thread Lift

  • reduces wrinkles, lines, and creases

  • lifts and tightens saggy or flabby skin, improving definition

  • naturally improves skin elasticity and texture

  • produces more defined facial contours such as cheekbones

  • can sculpt more pleasing features e.g. angle of the mouth

Advantages of PLLA Threads

  • Long-lasting results – generally longer lasting than PDO threads

  • Super-fine – less visible after the procedure

  • Transparent – invisible through the skin

  • Excellent safety record over 30 years

  • Naturally broken down within the body over about 18 months

  • Results last around 24 months and wear off gradually

  • The procedure can be repeated as required in the future, adjusted to best tackle ongoing facial aging
