Thread Lift


Our body’s natural ageing process leads to a reduction in elastic tissue and collagen causing the facial fat pads to descend. This skin laxity results in the development of jowls and lower facial heaviness. Thread lifts are designed to lift, support and tighten the skin to provide a more youthful appearance without the downtime of surgery.

PDO Thread treatment, also known as the ‘thread lift’, is used to lift the face and neck area. The threads are made from a material also used for dissolvable medical stitches. Your body will gradually develop new collagen around these threads creating a subtle yet effective face lift.

The threads are inserted through small entry points and expertly positioned with flexible cannulas. On removal of the cannula, the thread remains in the tissue. Unlike traditional surgery there is no scarring and recovery times are very significantly shorter.

A combination of a Thread-Lift with Dermal Fillers to reposition sagging skin followed by replacement of volume deficiency and contour will often provide the most superior results. Profhilo, a Skin Boosting hyaluronic acid, works well alongside PDO threads as both treatments initiate new collagen production extending the duration of the effect.
