Invasive face and body rejuvenation methods.

What is a thread facelift?

A thread facelift, also known as ‘lunchtime facelift’ or non-surgical facelift, is a subtle facial rejuvenating treatment using threads to reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline and neck.  This procedure has less risk than invasive surgical solutions, although in terms of expectation, this convenient alternative will not give you the results of the full surgical facelift.  A minimally-invasive treatment delivering rejuvenation and lifting without the pain and down time of surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The thread is inserted and orientated to oppose the natural force of gravity which causes line creation and skin weakness. Depending on the area of treatment a single thread may be inserted or maybe multiple threads. Ultimately the aim is twofold: to create lift and volume, and increase collagen stimulation thereby improving tone and elasticity.

After a small local anaesthetic the doctor inserts the suture (thread) under the skin to a depth of about 3 to 5 mm, through the top layer (epidermis), into the hypo dermis or subcutaneous tissues according to type of thread.  It is then pushed beneath the skin upwards to an exit point.  The thread is pulled taught at both ends so that the cogs or hooks are bedded into the hypodermis or subcutaneous tissue lifting the skin as desired.  Threads have the benefit of offering joint actions: a lift effect for discreet results and, a regenerative effect by stimulating collagen for progressive and natural results.

Aptos threads are made of caprolac which is on basis of polylactic and caprolactone acids. It is synthetic absorbable materials used in surgery for 30 years. Some lines are made of polyprolene which is a synthetic non-absorbable material, used in surgery for over 50 years. Polypropylene is safe, does not cause allergy and is not rejected by the organism. The first improvements are seen right after the procedure and better results seen after edema is gone in 7-10 days’ post procedure. More improvement is noticed after 45 days after stimulation of collagen synthesis. The results are maintained for 2-3 years.

Commonly threads are used on the brow, lower face, jowl and neck area however they can also be used in volume on arms, breasts and inner thighs.

It is important for anybody considering a thread lift to have a full consultation with our doctor beforehand.  Threads are recommended for men and women of 35 years and over who are trying to combat effectively the signs of ageing and who do not want any heavy or invasive treatment but are looking for real and natural results.

No special preparation is required prior to treatment however we recommend that you discuss your expectations and any questions during the consultation with our doctor.  We would also need to discuss and be informed of any medication you are currently taking.

The procedure is relatively short. It is known as the lunchtime facelift, however realistically it can take 30 to 45 minutes including preparation and treatment.

The results can be instant and long-lasting. Threads are absorbed within 10 to 12 months although the effects of treatment lasts 2-3 years.
