What is a Thread Lift?

At Health & Aesthetics, we use Silhouette Soft threads and PDO (Polydioxanone) threads. These are inserted 5mm beneath the skin to produce a 1-2cm lift.  In addition to the lift, due to the threads you will also produce more collagen and elastin after the treatment leading to rejuvenation of the skin.

The threads used fully dissolve over 6-12 months and in this time stimulate fibroblast cells to produce more collagen which further rejuvenates and brightens the skin.

Before & After Gallery

“Very reassuring”, Female patient (55)

“I found my experience very reassuring. Dr Tailor was excellent in explaining clinical and aesthetic effects of treatment. I felt she was interested in advising me for my benefit and did not use a hard sell technique I left feeling confident and able to make an informed choice on treatments. Have already recommended to others!”

“Exceedingly impressed”, Female Patient (65)

“Exceedingly impressed at how comprehensive the consultation was and it quite exceeded my expectations. Rekha gave a detailed description of her, her background, treatments available, treatments precisely tailored (no pun intended!) to my individual needs. I left with a clear understanding of what, why, how, and the benefits to be achieved.”

“Very impressed”, Victoria (59)

“I view myself lucky to have a clinic like Health & Aesthetics in Surrey as you would only expect to find a similar one in London. Rekha Tailor who is a qualified doctor together with a professional team of staff give you the latest up to date treatments. I am very impressed that when I have only just read about a new advanced treatment in the newspaper, Health & Aesthetics is already providing them. My own experience has been wonderful with friendly professional and honest advice, the treatments make me feel much better about the way I look without making me look as though anything has been done.”

Frequently Asked Questions

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:

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

Crepey skin on the cheeks
Crow’s feet
Lip lines
Crepey Neck

At Health & Aesthetics we find patients need at least 2 threads per side however, some patients need 3 each side when using Silhouette Soft threads. PDO threads differ and numerous threads can be used each side as these are finer????

Results will last up to 12 months

Both men and women can have this treatment. Patients with thin or very loose skin will probably see less effective results so it would be better to consider Ultherapy or Accent Prime.

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.

Results generally last for 18 months.

Silhouette Soft threads and PDO threads can be combined with Ultherapy to give a fantastic lift. Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound to cause microinjuries deep into the skin. This produces collagen and elastin causing a ‘two fingered lift’ to the face. Ultherapy is the leading non-surgical facelift device and Health & Aesthetics are a centre of excellence for Ultherapy.

Profhilo can be combined with thread lifts to help remodel the skin and reduce skin’s laxity. This is an injectable treatment which helps to revitalise and stimulate the skin on the face and neck.

Accent Prime is often used by those investing in Thread Lifts as it is FDA approved to fight skin’s laxity using RadioFrequency. This can create fantastic results looking for those targeting the loose skin around their face.
