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. Thread lifts claim to tighten your skin by inserting medical-grade thread material into your face and then “pulling” your skin up by tightening the thread.

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, help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, rejuvenating dull skin and plumping areas affected by facial volume loss. At The Skin to Love Clinic this treatment is always performed by a medical practitioner.

Thread Lift Before and After

During the thread lift treatment, multiple threads are placed into the skin to lift, regenerate and re-vitalise the treatment area, improving skin’s elasticity and brightness. 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.

All of the polydioxanone (PDO) threads used in the thread lifts treatment are made of complex carbohydrates, routinely used in cardiac surgery, which are reabsorbed from five to 12 months following the treatment, depending on your metabolism and area of 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

I'm claustrophobic so didn't like having my eyes completely covered, however, Jane was so patient & understanding & dealt with the situation brilliantly so I could have the treatment. It was a so easy in the end, took minutes, & nothing to worry about at all.

I cannot recommend the team the innovation and treatments more highly than at the Skin To Love Clinic. They are at the cutting edge of beauty and have new ways and procedures that make your skin look beautiful. I've spent many years on Harley and Wimpole street and assumed you couldn't get this level of investment and treatments anywhere else but the Skin the Love clinic not only offer every top treatment but the Jane and Sue are so skillful and have a real eye for what will work for you. Their mini thread lift is incredible as is their 'vampire' treatment but skin since I have moved to St Albans has improved dramatically

I have several issues with my skin and have been working with my doctor to deal with them. He referred me to a Dermatologist who advised on the treatment I needed. It took me a while to find the right place with the level of expertise that I needed and The Skin to Love Clinic ticked all of the boxes. My first experience with The Skin to Love Clinic was about 2 years ago. I had a consultation with Jane and immediately knew I was in good hands. I had a series of Fraxel laser which dealt with the issue as well as improved the quality of my skin. I am now dealing with a different issue and without hesitation made an appointment with Jane. What a relief to know that once again, I will be in the best hands and get the most appropriate treatment for my skin, not only dealing with the issue but also improving the health of my skin at the same time.About 4 years ago, I had threads from a well known Clinic in Harley Street. The process was extremely painful, left me with a lot of bruising, a disfigured face and took at least 6 weeks to recover. For the first 1 - 2 weeks I could hardly open my mouth, getting my toothbrush into my mouth was painful.2 weeks ago (with much trepidation) I had threads at Skin to Love. The difference was remarkable. This is a cosmetic procedure so when the threads are inserted, there is some discomfort. However, it was a far cry from the extreme pain from the Harley Street clinic. I had 1 pale yellow bruise about the size of 50p, no disfiguration and went out for dinner that night! My face was tender to touch for about 1 week but definitely not painful. I could see the results straight away and as time passes, it gets better. Thank you Jane for being so patient with me. I was so scared but now know I didn't need to be.

Exceptionally positive experience:* A consultation is required to determine whether the requested treatment is suitable for me. This reassured me of their expertise and integrity (that they wouldn't just push any treatment on me)* Specialist Jane is clearly an expert on the Clear&Brilliant treatment and provided me with a comprehensive insight in the procedure + follow-up care and answered all my questions* Tomorrow I'll receive a check-in call, which shows their level of attentiveness* Reception staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful* So far my Clear and Brilliant treatment looks good, will see results in 2-4 weeks

I made the mistake of buying a product called Eyesential; an under eye enhancer which temporarily erases puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles in minutes and lasts for up to 8 hours. I used this product for a period of 7 years. During this time, the skin under and around my eyes became thinner, reddened, chronically dry and intensely wrinkled. I thought there was nothing I could do and would be left like this. I felt so depressed. Then one day when I was in The Skin to Love Clinic having treatment for Laser Hair Removal; I was informed about Thermage for the very first time. I now have this procedure done yearly. Jane has brought my skin back to its original state and more. My confidence has come back and I feel a so much happier. This treatment really works!

Emma is so professional and kind. At an initial consultation with her on a viral wart on my face, Emma explained my options and the procedure carefully and thoroughly. Afterwards I tried various lotions and wart removal products, but to no avail. Three months later I saw Emma again. It only took her a few minutes to surgically remove my wart. It was done with such a precision that my skin has been recovering really quickly and well. I highly recommend Emma!

Would recommend, had a consultation by the nurse , very informative and all staff are extremely knowledgeable of their treatments. Not pushy in selling products or services , the look and feel of the store is very warm and welcoming. I am looking forward to getting treatments there.Update in 4/10/2021 - after going to mobile therapists and now here, I must say there is a big difference ! much much more professional and great customer service - I have had anti wrinkle injections and was reassured this will work and it has! ( I had deep frown lines) worth the bit of extra money for sure!
