Knifeless Thread Lift

The ageing process starts to show its signs as early as in your mid to late 20’s. Moreover, depleting facial fat pads around eyes, cheeks, jawline and neck coupled with collagen loss result in poor skin elasticity and firmness.

“A research done by Plastic and Aesthetic Research, claims that after the age of 34, there is a gradual decline in collagen of about 25%.”

This negative shift in your skin adds years to your face, which can be effectively addressed with gravity defying thread face lift or PDO threads.

What Is A Thread Face Lift?

A thread face lift using PDO threads is an advanced non-surgical skin tightening and skin lifting procedure that gives instant facial rejuvenation.

By placing PDO (polydioxanone) threads which are synthetic, fine absorbable threads, placed under the skin of the targeted areas, patients see a visible difference in the skin of the treated areas.

Defying Age And Gravity

Upon absorption in your skin, these threads stimulate natural production of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin, improving the texture and tone of skin while tightening it.

A PDO thread lift or Thread Face Lift is one of the flash anti ageing treatments designed to achieve a youthful and refreshed look without the need of undergoing a knife or witnessing any major side effect, risk, severe pain or scars.

How Does a Thread Lifts Work?

There are two ways that a Thread Lift works:

At first, a mechanical lift of the skin can be accomplished, serving as a non-surgical facelift and giving the face an instantly lifted look.

Second, over the period of many months, the threads—which are embedded deeply in your skin—stimulate your body’s collagen making, hence, giving you a firmer, enhanced and youthful appearance that looks totally natural.

Non Surgical Thread Lift Procedure:

Before Treatment

The first step if you’re considering Thread Lift is to schedule a consultation with an Aesthetic Doctor at CosmeDocs

The doctor will ask you about the goals you wish to achieve from your Thread Lift procedure.

Moreover, there will be a thorough facial examination along with answering your possible inquiries about the treatment. You will also be educated about the potential outcomes, advantages, and risks of the treatment.

During Treatment

  • PDO threads are introduced to the treatment area using cannulas (blunt-tipped needles), or thin needle that is sharp-tipped.
  • These threads serve as anchors as the skin is pulled upwards after being placed into the right layer of the skin. Then the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends the threads securely, giving your skin some support for a lifted appearance.
  • Towards the end of your procedure, the extra threads are then snipped out.

After Treatment

A thread lift procedure is minimally invasive and so, requires little recovery time. Patients may suffer some discomfort, slight swelling, redness and bruising following the procedure.

Little skin depressions or stiffness may remain for a few days after the treatment.

Thread Face Lift Before and After

Thread lifts yield remarkable results for patients with mature as well as young skin.

Moreover, the follow up images show how the treatment has encouraged natural collagen synthesis in the skin for an ultimate anti ageing effect.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any downtime associated with PDO thread lift?

Since there is no surgery involved in a minimally invasive thread lift treatment, hence, you do not need to expect a significant downtime after your non surgical face lift. However, for the next few days, experts do advise the thread lift patients to take a break from all kinds of strenuous activities such as:

  • Jogging
  • Gym workouts 
  • Swimming

Be sure to strictly follow the aftercare guidelines of your doctor to avoid any unwanted complications following your thread lift.

What kind of results to expect after PDO thread lift?

One of the biggest benefits of thread lifts at CosmeDocs is the instant gratification in the form of facial skin rejuvenation. Unlike in a surgical face lift, thread lift results are natural looking and aesthetically pleasing.

Patients can expect to notice:

  • A lifted midface or lower face area
  • Contoured facial features
  • Softer look of nasolabial folds or laugh lines
  • Snatched and defined jawline
  • Tight and taut neck skin

Moreover, in a course of a few next months of your procedure, you can also expect to notice a firmer looking skin as thread lift stimulates collagen production.

How Many Thread Lifts Sessions Will I Need?

A single treatment usually delivers excellent results for the most of our patients such as instant lift to drooping skin while also boosting collagen and elastin to support loose skin. You can pay us a visit six to nine months following your first treatment so that we can assess whether you require a second session. You shouldn’t need another procedure for three years after that.

Can Thread Lift be combined with other treatments?

PDO thread face lift procedure is quite effective aesthetic rejuvenation treatment for men and women dealing with sagging skin and loss of firmness. However, it cannot address loss of volume and wrinkle prevention or correction which are common signs of an aging skin.

Thread lifts are commonly combined with other injectable procedures, including as anti wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, and others. PDO threading is often coupled with the following treatment options:

  • Since thread lifts are usually inadequate for treating Crow’s feet and frown lines around the brow and eyes, wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® and Dysport® may be used with them to minimise their look.
  • In order to get a lifted effect that is more similar to a surgical procedure or liquid facelift, a thread lift can be combined with a dermal filler, such as Restylane® or Sculptra®.

How long does the thread face lift UK last?

PDO threads are not permanent. However, the effects last longer than many other non-invasive cosmetic treatments such as hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers that last for up to 6 months. 

The majority of the patients at CosmeDocs report that their results have lasted for up to 2 years. Nevertheless, there are many factors that influence the longevity of the effects such as:

  • Age of the patients
  • Condition and health of the patient’s skin
  • Material of the thread used for the thread lifts.

Is there any chance of a thread lift gone wrong?

Even though this non-invasive skin tightening and lifting procedure is a low risk procedure with a safety profile and a proven efficacy record, there is always a slight chance that it may not go as per expectations. Some of the possible complications that a PDO thread lift caused are as follows:

  • Infection
  • Slight facial asymmetry
  • Unwanted migration of threads
  • Difficulty in facial movement or expressions

You can always avoid such a scenario by doing your due diligence and research on the procedure as well the doctor and the clinic. It is best to choose a place that has a good reputation with tons of satisfied thread lift before and after transformations as well as good reviews.

These subside in a few days but it is of vital importance that you choose the professional and experienced cosmetic doctor for the treatment to minimise the side effects.
