Thread Face Lifting

Published on: July 2, 2018

As we grow older, it’s a fact of life that our body changes. Skin begins to wrinkle, our faces start to droop and the youthful glow that most of us took for granted fades. But, there are ways you can lessen, or even reverse, the signs of ageing and keep your skin looking younger for longer.

One innovatory method that’s growing in popularity very quickly is thread face lifting in London. It’s simple, effective and can boost your confidence hugely after just one procedure! Here’s everything you need to know.

What is Thread Face Lifting

This non-surgical face lift is somewhat of a miracle when it comes to anti-ageing. It involves filament fibres being inserted under the skin that are incredibly strong, very pliable and completely safe for use.

After around 6-8 months, the fibres naturally dissolve, producing water and carbon dioxide which are absorbed into the skin and are completely harmless, causing a subtle inflammation and promoting the creation of new collagen. It’s pretty incredible!

We offer two different types of thread face lifting at The London Cosmetic Clinic; PDO and Silhouette Soft.

What Does it Do?

Thread face lifting in our London clinic has instant results that can last for up to 2 years. It helps to increase collagen production – which we all know is a key to youthful skin – and tighten pores. Loose, sagging skin is lifted and brightened, whilst the reparative process that doesn’t happen so naturally as we grow older is activated. Silhouette Soft can also reshape the face, defining areas such as the facial contour and cheekbones.

It can be used to treat a number of areas on the face, including (but not limited to!) areas where the skin is wrinkled, the forehead, brow region, eyebrows and lower eyelids, cheeks and under the jaw. It can also be used to treat areas of the body such as sagging skin or stretch marks on the belly and wrinkles on the neck.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

For PDO thread face lifting, it takes only half an hour for the procedure, which is pretty incredible when you think of the drastic results. There’s very little to no discomfort and you’ll be back up on your feet in no time at all.

You’ll be given numbing cream to make sure you’re totally comfortable before the threads are inserted using needles. There’s no cut and the skin is reshaped by hand to create the look you want. Simple!
