As we age, our skin loses elasticity and volume and begins to sag. For many, a face lift is an attractive option to boost self-esteem and confidence and rejuvenate the face but traditional face lifts involve major surgery, extended downtime, bruising and pain.
Non-surgical face lifts, using thread lifts, are a great alternative to the traditional option. They offer a quick treatment time, minimal bruising and pain, are completely safe and are a fraction of the cost.
Thread lifts are specialised surgical threads used to lift sagging skin and help it tighten. They can be used to treat any part of the face, including the cheeks, jowls, forehead, mouth and neck and are absorbed over time, promoting collagen and elastin production and tightening and lifting the skin.
When placed, the threads immediately re-suspend areas of your skin that are sagging. Cone-like structures along the thread anchor into the tissue just below your skin as it is tightened, providing a lifting effect which is instantly visible.
The threads cause the tissue to respond as if you have had an injury, causing the healing process to boost collagen which then naturally rejuvenates your skin. After around three months, the threads are completely absorbed. The lifting effect lasts for around 18 months and the procedure can be repeated after this time.
