Thread Lifting – Silhouette Soft and PDO lifts.
What is a thread facelift?
A thread facelift is a safe, convenient alternative to traditional facelift surgery. Designed to be less invasive, it can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional approach of surgery. Special threads (Silhouette Soft or PDO are used during this facelift to discreetly hold repositioned skin and facial tissue in place whilst slowly inducing natural collagen formation to give a natural long lasting result. Dr Molina will carry out your consultation and discussed your best treatment options.
How does it work?
The threads are introduced under the skin via small puncture holes and there is no requirement for incisions and sutures and thus scarring unlike with a surgical facelift.Once in place the tissue are lifted and held in place giving an immediate result which improves gradually over the next three months as new collagen is formed in response to the threads.
Is the treatment painful?
Some mild discomfort to the patient as a local anaesthetic is injected on points of the face prior to inserting the threads.For some patients there can be also some minor discomfort during the procedure and for the next few days afterwards for which simple analgesia is usually effective.
What areas can be treated?
Threads can be put almost anywhere but the most popular and common areas are the cheeks, jawline and neck. Eyes and lips can also be treated on using smaller threads.
Is the treatment for me?
The best candidates for a thread facelift are in their 30s to 60s and have relatively good skin tone. Most are beginning to experience sagging in their face or neck but do not have excessively loose skin or drooping facial areas.
What is the downtime?
Very little, you can be back to normal after 2-3 days with some makeup to cover any bruising. Initially swelling usually subsides within 24 hours and any puckering or folding of the skin settles within the first few days
How much does it cost?
There is no set price on the thread face lift as it depends on how many threads are required, following a free no obligation consultation we will be able to provide you with a specific price.
The price can range from £1400 to £2000.
