Thread Lift

Until recently, the only way to address problems caused by facial skin laxities – such as jowls and drooping cheeks – was facelift surgery. Introducing, Thread lifting, it is a cosmetic procedure that offers a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery. The Thread Lift treatment tightens your skin by inserting tiny medical-grade threads into the desired area, which physically lift your skin up, offering immediate results.

Tighten, rejuvenate, and smooth your skin with this sought-after treatment. The Thread Lift treatment addresses a variety of concerns that are typical in ageing skin including lifting loose sagging skin, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, rejuvenating and plumping areas affected by facial volume loss.

At The Skin to Love Clinic this treatment is always performed by a medical practitioner in our CQC registered setting.

Thread Lift Before and After

During the Thread Lift treatment, multiple threads are placed into the skin to regenerate, re-vitalise, and immediately lift the treatment area, resulting in firmer, tighter skin and redefined features, such as your jawline.

Several types of threads are available to target your specific concerns, for example, some threads have a volumising effect and some have a direct lifting effect to improve sagging skin; you may have a combination of thread types should you wish to address more than one concern. The type(s) of threads that would be most beneficial for you will be discussed fully during a consultation.

The threads used during your Thread Lift treatment are made from polylactic acid, the same safe substance used in orthopaedic medicine for suture pins. Aside from immediately lifting your skin, the threads then work on the treated tissues to stimulate collagen production which further improves the look and feel of the skin.

These threads are gradually broken down and safely removed by the body following the treatment: Thread Lift results typically last up to 12 to 18 months, depending on your metabolism and the area treated.

thread lift treatment

This treatment is recommended for those who wish to rejuvenate and/or lift the tissue on the face, neck or body. Indications that this treatment may be right for you if:

  • You wish to tighten and redefine your jawline
  • You wish to lift and firm your neck and chin
  • You wish to lift and redefine your cheeks
  • You wish to soften nose-to-mouth lines
  • You wish to soften marionette (mouth to chin) lines
  • You wish to rejuvenate your mid-face area
  • You wish to elevate your eyebrows
  • You wish to improve signs of ageing around your mouth
  • You wish to soften crows-feet and other lines around your eyes
  • You wish to generally improve the elasticity and brightness of your skin
  • You wish to rejuvenate and tighten your abdomen, buttocks, thighs and/or inner arms
  • You wish to lift and firm your face and neck

If I don’t have a thread lift again, will I look worse than I did before?

No, the treads will very gradually and safely be broken down by your body so there will not be a dramatic difference or drop from one day to the next. The threads will leave behind a legacy of naturally stimulated collagen and hyaluronic acid which your skin will continue benefiting from.

Is the thread lift treatment the ‘non-surgical face lift treatment’?

The Thread Lift is sometimes referred to as the non-surgical face lift, however it must be noted that patients should not expect to achieve the same results with this treatment as they would with a surgical procedure.

Do thread lifts hurt?

At The Skin to Love Clinic we use local anaesthetic during your treatment to greatly improve your comfort, therefore the level of discomfort is usually minimal if any.

I’m looking for dramatic correction for my signs of ageing, is a thread lift right for me?

We will be able to give you specific advice during your consultation, however, this treatment can help if you have loose skin and/or have other advanced signs of ageing such as wrinkles. It is not a substitute for surgical treatments.

The Thread Lift can be used in combination with other treatments such as Thermage CPT, Wrinkle Relaxing Injections and Dermal Fillers. You and your practitioner will create a treatment plan which may include using this treatment alongside other treatments.

My skin isn’t in great condition, will I be ok to have thread lifts?

It is important to ensure that your skin is in a good enough condition to take the lifting threads therefore before having treatment, very occasionally, treatment to improve the skin quality is recommended first with the Thread Lift treatment scheduled at a later date; depending on the condition of your skin prior to treatment, home-use products with key ingredients in them or in-clinic treatment such as laser or radiofrequency may be recommended prior to the thread treatment to ensure that your skin is able to well receive the threads. This would be discussed with you fully during a consultation.

Very experienced staff who take the time to put you at ease.Trisha

Thank you once again, Jane. Had another great experience and another great improvement. My neck looks amazing.Jo

Really great skin clinic. Would highly recommendNathan

Can’t praise the team at The Skin to Love Clinic enough as excellent results from mini threads and fillers. The personal aftercare puts to rest any anxieties about procedures. Highly recommended.” – Jane

It’s always a pleasure visiting The Skin to Love Clinic as everyone always so very nice! The beauty of the clinic, especially Jane, is they have a genuine desire to help me look my best without trying to oversell or overdo treatments.  (I know this because before Skin to Love opened I used to visit another local clinic who always made me think they were all about turnover!) Jane always listens, discusses and helps me make the right choices with all my treatments. I am over the moon with the thread treatments and the difference they are making. I have never ever been disappointed and will be a client for the rest of my life!!!” – Karen

“Thank you for taking the time and trouble to answer all my questions! I feel in such safe hands and am really looking forward to seeing the end results.”Rose

“Can’t recommend this clinic enough. The team make you feel very comfortable and confident. I had the PDO threads and am absolutely over the moon with the results. My husband was very impressed. It is so lovely to attend a clinic where you are made to feel so comfortable by all the staff and have consultations that enable you to convey your requirements and gain an understanding to achieve the best results. Forget the face lift! PDO honey thread lift gives amazing results. I am absolutely thrilled with my new neck and jawline!!” – Rita

Just got home and my partner said my skin looked fresher but couldn’t work out why. Result!” – Celine

Review with Jane today which was thorough and everything explained very clearly. Current images taken to compare with those pre-treatments and the results spoke for themselves! Thank You!” – Rose

As always my appointment with Jane was professional and exactly what I wanted. Skin to love takes into account your style of life and will advise and schedule treatments to fit around you. They follow up all treatments with a phone call or text to check for any concerns. I have been a customer for 3 years and have never had an issue and have no hesitation in recommending them as nice caring people and for providing only top quality service and products.Jean

Yesterday, I underwent a Hydrafacial treatment with Nikki at The Skin To Love Clinic, and it was truly a remarkable experience.Nikki's expertise in tailoring the treatment to my skin's needs was evident from the start. The Hydrafacial process left my skin feeling deeply cleansed, hydrated, and rejuvenated.The addition of the J Lo booster serum took the experience to another level. Its application left my skin feeling incredibly smooth and plump, with a noticeable glow that was noticed by my husband,too!Overall, my Hydrafacial experience with Nikki exceeded my expectations. It's clear that her skill and attention to detail make her an exceptional aesthetician at The Skin To Love Clinic.I will definitely be back for more!

I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience.

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.
