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 and results can last for up to 18 months.

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:

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

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 less effective results so it would be better to consider Ultherapy or Accent Prime.

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.

Patient Reviews


EXPLAINING CLINICAL AND AESTHETIC EFFECTSI 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!Female patient (55) GENERAL - EXPLAINING CLINICAL AND AESTHETIC EFFECTS (55)
EXCEEDINGLY IMPRESSED WITH CONSULTATIONExceedingly 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.Female patient (65) GENERAL - EXCEEDINGLY IMPRESSED (65)
AS CUTTING EDGE AS LONDONI 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.Victoria (59) GENERAL - AS CUTTING EDGE AS LONDON - Victoria (59)
