Knifeless Thread Face 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 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 Lift Work?

The ultimate aim of this favourite skin tightening procedure is to visibly yet safely tighten and tone up loose skin tissues.

Hence, giving a speedy face lift while boosting skin’s long term collagen and elastin production.

  • After numbing the skin of the target areas of treatment, the PDO threads are introduced into the areas such as cheeks, jowls or neck using a cannula.
  • Depending on your aesthetic goals and concerns, within minutes you can witness a more lifted, refreshing and contoured effect.

Thread Face Lift Before and After

Thread face lift yields remarkable results for patients with mature as well as young skin. 

Below are some of the CosmeDocs thread lift before and after transformations with visible rejuvenation of the facial profile.

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

Benefits Of Thread Face Lift

A surgical facelift not only carries great risks and complications but may also give unnatural and unsatisfying results. Hence, making PDO thread lift, the most preferred knifeless skin rejuvenation for years.

  • Long-lasting skin tightening & lifting solution
  • Instantly redefines and contours facial features
  • Most popularly used for eyebrow lift, nose lift and neck lift
  • Successfully compliments other cosmetic treatments such as fillers
  • PDO thread lift can also rejuvenate areas other than your face such as breasts, buttocks, or belly

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Thread Face Lift / PDO thread lift safe?

Absolutely! PDO thread lift is declared to be completely safe in the UK and in other countries around the world. The threads used for the procedure have a good safety profile since they are made of biocompatible materials that are dissolved in your body overtime.

Experts at CosmeDocs have also carried out multiple thread face lift procedures requested by patients thanks to its safety and effective results.

Moreover, the safety and efficacy of the treatment greatly relies on the aesthetic practitioner who performs it. Usually plastic surgeons or adequately trained doctors, well-versed in your facial anatomy and physiology should be your best options.

Who is an ideal candidate for thread face lift and skin tightening?

Men and women in their 30’s to their 50’s and beyond who are experiencing mild to severe skin sagging and drooping are quite suitable for face lift thread procedure. 

However, the doctor must examine your face thoroughly during the consultation to determine your eligibility for this non-invasive anti-ageing treatment.

Furthermore, younger patients can also significantly benefit from PDO thread lift if they desire a sharper and more angular facial profile and youthful neck.

What is the Thread Lift Cost UK?

The Thread lift London Cost at CosmeDocs starts from as low as £400 depending on the concern of the patient. However, the final thread lift price is confirmed upon a consultation with our expert who will advise you the best possible treatment tailored to your indications and expectations.

Please refer to the treatment price list mentioned above.

Is facial thread lift painful?

Like in any injectable treatment, you may experience a small ‘pinch’ or ‘prick’ during the insertion of the thread into your skin. However, thanks to the numbing effect of topical anaesthetic gel that is applied prior to your procedure and our highly skilled doctors, your discomfort is greatly minimised.

You can also gently apply a cold ice pack on the treated areas to reduce any possible swelling, redness or bruising.

What are different types of PDO threads and which one do I need?

PDO is an acronym for Polydioxanone, a material that has been in medical use for decades, especially as ‘dissolvable stitches’. The face lift thread also used for nose thread lift and neck thread lift is made of this synthetic and flexible material that is easily absorbed by your body.

PDO threads are available in 3 different types of textures mainly:

  • Cog
  • Screw
  • Mono

Cog Threads:

This type of thread has a barbed-like texture that attaches to the skin, hence, adjusting and supporting the treated areas.

Screw Threads:

This kind of thread has one or two threads overlaid on one another around a needle that helps volume restoration, especially to the sunken areas of your face.

Mono Threads:

Such threads have smooth texture and are without any barbs. They are placed directly under the skin of the target area to achieve a skin tightening effect. Moreover, this tightening effect is enhanced with a boost in collagen production.

In order to determine what type of PDO thread is most suitable for you, it is important to have a detailed and honest consultation with an expert. 

During this important chat, your expectations, aesthetic concerns and treatment goals are discussed which will help in sorting out the appropriate thread for you.

Is there any downtime associated with PDO thread face lift?

Since there is no surgery involved in this procedure, 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 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 face lift.

What kind of results to expect after PDO thread lift?

One of the biggest benefits of a thread lift at CosmeDocs is the instant gratification in the form of facial skin rejuvenation. Unlike in a surgical face lift, thread face 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

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 treatment

Is there any chance of a thread lift gone wrong?

Even though this non-invasive skin tightening and lifting procedure has 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 with the treatment 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.

Check out our thread face lift before and after photos and see how effective and safe this rejuvenation procedure actually is.

What Are The Possible Side Effects Of PDO thread face lift Treatment?

The PDO facelift treatment has few and temporary side effects that include bruising, numbness, mild swelling and skin tenderness with slight facial asymmetry. 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.
