A favoured alternative of the traditional surgery
The traditional method of addressing the signs of ageing through surgery has evolved, and a non-surgical thread lift procedure is now a favoured alternative. A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable threads to redefine and restore lost elasticity and volume in the face for a youthful appearance. It is less invasive than traditional facelift surgery – it is more convenient, involves less risk and is less expensive.
Not only is the procedure minimally invasive and safe, but it also provides natural-looking and long-lasting results. The effects of a thread lift can last for up to 18 months and can be changed to suit each individual’s unique needs and concerns. Whether you are looking to improve the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, or volume loss, a thread lift procedure can help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed look without the risks and lengthy recovery time of traditional surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which areas can be treated with a Thread Lift?
The Thread Lift can be used to treat many different areas of the face:
- Facial Contour: This redefines the contour of the face, firming up the skin and giving a fuller look to cheeks.
- Lower Jaw: The contour of the face regains definition and cheeks are redefined.
- Neck: This provides more definition and a stronger contour giving a sleeker appearance.
- Cheeks and Cheekbones: The cheeks and cheekbones appear fuller and the nasolabial fold is reduced.
- Eyebrows: This opens up the eyes, and raises the outer edge of the eyebrow.
What does the procedure involve?
A small injection of local anaesthetic is applied to the area being treated, then the thread is placed under the skin. This is done usually through a small incision or with a fine needle. Once the thread is in place, slight compression of the tissue is performed to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect and skin tightening.
How long does a thread lift last?
Typically, the results of a thread lift can be sustained for a period of 6 to 12 months. During this time, your skin will display a noticeable improvement in firmness and youthful appearance. However, once the effects start to diminish, they can be easily reinstated through another non-invasive procedure.
Is a thread facelift painful?
The thread facelift procedure may cause some discomfort for some of our clients, which can be alleviated through the application of a local anaesthetic. After treatment there may be swelling, bruising, redness, pain, discolouration or tenderness where the threads are placed.
