Thread Lift

Thread lifting is a very popular treatment which can be used to lift the face and neck without the need for surgery. Excessive volume is not good but sometimes a subtle, non-surgical lift can help to redefine the face and neck. It is highly effective at lifting jowls, sagging skin and treating lines and wrinkles.

This is a minimally invasive procedure with very little downtime. Results can last for up to 18 months. So it is no wonder that we have many patients who opt for this treatment from throughout Surrey and Hampshire.

Thread Lift Treatment Info

Silhouette Soft thread lifts were developed six years ago. They are the latest generation thread-lifting procedure, which use fully absorbable threads over a period of 9-12 months (made of polylactic and glycolic acids), with no need for cuts or stitches.

Thread lifting can also be done by using PDO (polydioxanone) threads. Polydioxanone is fully bio-compatible and is dissolved by the body over a period of 6 – 12 months. PDO threads have been used safely in surgery, to close wounds, for over 15 years. The threads are placed under the skin without cuts or stitches.

The threads create a lifting effect which is visible straight away. They stimulate the fibroblast cells to produce collagen which helps to rejuvenate and brighten the skin.
Silhouette Soft threads have cones which point in different directions so no anchor points are needed – both threads and cones dissolve over a period of 6 – 12 months.
PDO threads used in aesthetics are specially cut (cog threads) so that they gently, but firmly, tether under the skin and grip it, to pull and lift. There are also fine threads used to stimulate collagen production. PDO threads are dissolved by the body over a period of 6 – 12 months.

Known as a ‘non-surgical facelift’, both Silhouette Soft and PDO Threads can be used to lift saggy areas of skin. PDO Threads can also be used to stimulate collagen growth in order to diminish lines and wrinkles.

Areas that can be treated with Silhouette Soft and PDO Threads include:

  • Jawline
  • Jowls
  • Cheeks
  • Brows

Fine PDO threads are also used to create a ‘scaffold’ in order to stimulate collagen growth. These threads can be used to treat:

  • Crepy skin on the cheeks
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lip lines
  • Crepy Neck

With regards to Silhouette Soft threads most patients need 2 threads per side. Sometimes an additional thread is needed on each side.
With regards to PDO threads, numerous threads are needed on both sides.

Both men and women can have this treatment. Patients with thin or very loose skin will probably see fewer results and hence it is better to consider Ultherapy.

Results generally last for 18 months.

Thread lifting is an amazing treatment which creates impressive results:

  • Immediate but natural looking lift.
  • A gradual improvement for sagging skin, deep creases, lines and wrinkles.
  • Further improvement in the skin’s brightness, elasticity, tautness and tightness over the following 3 – 6 months, due to new collagen production.
  • Fully absorbable threads.
  • The results last for 18 months.
  • The procedure takes about 45 minutes.
  • No cuts are made and there are no stitches.
  • There is little downtime and very little discomfort during the procedure.

Silhouette Soft threads and PDO threads can be used either on their own or in combination with Ultherapy, Botox, dermal fillers and radio-frequency treatments.

  • Can’t recommend Dr T enough, I walk in asking for help with saggy bits and lost volume and she takes one very experienced look at me, and declares what needs to be done. Which we do and I’m thrilled with the results. She does little and often, and you are completely involved in your consultation, although I completely trust her recommendations. Dr T is honest and forthcoming and she is always striving to update herself on all the latest developments, which we get to hear about.
  • There are never any ‘over the top’ results and the best part is when your friends comment on how good you look and isn’t your skin great, that’s exactly what I want to hear! You’ll put yourself in safe hands with Dr T and her team.

I have never really had a waist as such. However, as I’ve got older any definition I did have was no longer there. I have never been overweight, I eat pretty healthily and do a reasonable amount of exercise. I have spent hundreds of pounds at various gyms and although they have done no harm I’ve never been able to shift anything from my midriff.As a healthcare professional, I am very aware of aesthetic procedures and have cared for many women who have had them. I, therefore, had a look on the internet to see what was now available that had good results and not too much down time. This is how I found CoolSculpting and the health + aesthetics practice in Farnham.I was extremely nervous about the whole process but was pleasantly surprised to find that the whole thing was explained well and addressed all my questions. On the day of the first procedure, I was all ready to back out but realised this was just crazy nerves! The procedure was mildlyuncomfortable but I was able to read a magazine so that shows it wasn’t that bad! The clinic atmosphere is quiet and relaxed which rubs off on you.Everything that I was advised would happen when I got home did happen so I was reassured that things were going as they should. By late afternoon I had forgotten I had gone through anything. The only reminder was that my skin was cold to touch. This wore off fairly quickly.I returned to work and thought no more about it until my follow up 3 months later except that I started to notice that there was less flesh at the top of my jeans etc. and no roll of flesh under my bra. It was so gradual.Specialist skin, laser and body clinic, health + aesthetics, Farnham, Surrey CoolSculpting stomach femaleI had two further procedures around the same area (2 treatments at a time) and have dropped two jean sizes – the purchase of a puppy may also have assisted the process as my exercise levels have quadrupled!!! Overall if you have a person who looks after themselves but has that stubborn area of fat that won’t shift then this is absolutely the procedure for you.The team at Farnham are professional, sensible and competent and pass on their confidence to you.For me, I feel more confident in my appearance as my clothes fit properly and with that, I am more confident in my overall life.From a financial perspective if you compare the cost of a package for CoolSculpting with a liposuction package it is much more affordable. Add to that no systemic anaesthetic, no corsets, no bruising and no downtime. It’s a no brainer and the outcomes are better in my view.Pauline (58)"
