A tiny entry will be made by the ear then fine threads are inserted and advanced along pre-marked contours. The threads are made from polydioxanone (PDO) – the same material used for medical stitches – which dissolve naturally in the body over time. Once the threads are in place, your body starts to produce new bundles of collagen around each thread and this in turn brings about a subtle yet effective lift. The results differ for each person, but are very natural, giving a rejuvenated and refreshed look. There is no scarring and recovery times are a lot less than those associated with traditional surgery.
We are currently awaiting CQC registration to enable us treat with PDO threads at our Canford Cliffs clinic. However, we can still arrange initial consultations for patients who are interested in finding out if treatment is suitable for them. We will update the website as soon as treatment can recommence.
A thread lift’s lasting power depends on the age of the patient at the time of procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. It should be noted that sagging will return over time, but many doctors report that the results last for anything between 2 and 3 years. To extend the results it is possible to have additional threads inserted and your doctor can advise you when this is required.
This procedure requires a minimum amount of non-invasive surgery and leaves no scarring. Local anaesthetic is all that is needed and there is no hospital stay either. Another good factor about the thread lift is that it is much more affordable than a regular face lift, and the results are long lasting.If you are looking for a quick and effective solution to a range of aging problems then a thread lift is the perfect solution.
