River Aesthetics is an award winning medical aesthetics practice (2017 Aesthetic Awards). It was founded by two female doctors; Dr Victoria Manning and Dr Charlotte Woodward, both formerly GPs, with over 45 years of combined medical and aesthetics experience. The doctors have built their reputation as two of the most experienced and skilled thread lift specialists in the UK.
The RiverLIFT was pioneered by the founding partners of River Aesthetics. The treatment is renowned for its subtle, yet stunning results, with patients and celebrity fans including A list actresses and make up artists endorsing their expert touch. Household names including Anthea Turner, Victoria Pendleton and Meg Matthews have all been treated by River Aesthetics.
It is completely tailored to you; no two treatments are the same, it redefines your facial contours and ignites the body’s own natural collagen production, it is a simple, non-surgical procedure taking 60 minutes, but lasting 18-24 months. It is performed by two of the UK’s leading thread doctors. Some of the best results and impact of the RiverLIFT are achieved through: redefined jaw line and reduced jowls, less evident nose to mouth lines, increased volume in the mid face and contour of cheek, rejuvenated neck by tightening laxity and reduced crêpey skin.
The RiverLIFT is the ultimate non-surgical aesthetic procedure to lift and tighten the face and neck by combining innovative thread technologies and next generation dermal filler techniques to address the signs of ageing in a beautiful, natural way.
The treatment is completely tailored to you, therefore the products we use are determined by what you need. In phase 1 we use Ellanse or a hyaluronic acid filler to volumise and improve your skin. Then in phase 2 we reposition your skin using Silhouette Soft or PDO threads.
If you have have thin skin, we opt for a three phased approach, by adding a course of Exilis skin tightening to boost the collagen and improve the skin prior to volumising and lifting. We can then consider the RiverLIFT
If we use Ellanse to volumise your skin, we then wait 3 months prior to you having the thread procedure to allow optimal results from the collagen stimulation. Normally it takes 3 months to complete the treatment, with lifting effects visible immediately
Unfortunately, if you have an auto-immune condition such as Vitiligo, scleroderma or crohns disease we are unable to do the procedure. This is because your skin can be unpredictable in its response to collagen stimulation. However, there are lots of other treatments available instead.
We always recommend Collagen supplements to optimise your results, in clinic we encourage both Zenii and Skinade starting a few weeks before treatment.
