Soft Thread Lift in London
Our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, drier and less smooth. In particular, the production of collagen and elastin fibres decreases. These two materials provide elasticity begin to wear out leaving skin prone to wrinkles and sagging. For some, a traditional facelift may be an option, while for others who experience early sagging. They may want to consider other options like soft thread lift.
A Soft Thread Lift is a virtually non-invasive procedure that uses bio-absorbable threads to induce collagen production, as a result, it creates higher definition in problem areas.

This treatment is ideal for people who are beginning to experience wrinkles on the forehead or mid-lower face and neck, and who don’t want to have surgery just yet.
How does it work?
A local anaesthetic is injected into the treatment area before a cannula or micro-needle is used to introduce the PDO threads. The procedure usually takes around 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated. The practitioner inserts a needle into the skin and then removes leaving the threads to remain.The absorbable thread activates the natural regenerative process. Your body then starts to produce collagen which surrounds the filaments, giving the skin a rejuvenated and re-defined look. The thread will form a long-lasting support structure for the tissue of the face. The lifting effect is at its peak six months later due to collagen having developed around the threads.
How long does it last?
A single procedure can last for at least ten months, but a further two treatments could extend the result to approximately two-three years.
Where can it be used?
Soft Thread Lift can be used to lift the sagging skin around the face, cheeks, jowls, double chins, cheeks, the brow and malar area.
