The thread facelift procedure is also known as the ‘Silhouette Soft™’ - named after the company that produces the most popular threads. Other popular threads are PDO brand of thread facelift. This procedure has really taken off in recent years. It is minimally invasive and produces results similar to the more expensive surgical face lift. The threadlift is used to treat jowls and sagging skin around the tear trough and malar region. It is also used to treat bands and sagging skin in the neck as well as drooping of the eyebrows. A set of threads to either side of the face and neck can provide a phenomenal lifting effect that can redefine the jaw and cheek regions as well as tighten the neck.

FAQ

How does thread lift work?

The face has a complex arrangement of skin, fat and muscle that are all subject to the ageing process. The face has a unique muscular layer called the SMAS - the superficial muscular aponeurotic system. The SMAS lies below a layer of fat and skin. The skin is anchored to this muscular layer which allow us to make specific facial expressions such as smiling and frowning. As we age these anchors stretch and loosen and our skin begins to sag. A thread facelift consists of absorbable threads with cones facing in opposite directions. These threads are inserted under the skin in specific patterns and the cones are anchored into the fat. Pulling on the threads results in a lifting of sagging skin and fat. The threads are made from polylactic acid or polydioxanone. These are known to trigger the formation of new collagen and elastin. This ensures the lifting effect remains long after the thread has been absorbed.

What is thread lift used to treat?

A thread facelift are used to treat jowls that develop following sagging of skin along the jaw line. They can also be used to provide a lifting effect around the cheeks and malar region. This subsequently can be used to reduce nasolabial folds and tighten the entire mid face region. A thread facelift can be used in the neck to tighten the neck and help to treat neck bands.

Is there scientific evidence to support thread lift treatment?

Threadlifts were originally developed by Dr Sulamanitze in Moscow who invented the bi-directional barbed wire thread he named the ‘Aptos Suture™’. This idea was refined by a company called KMI and eventually in 2009 the absorbable cone based ‘silhouette soft’ thread facelift sutures were developed. Dr Kwon Han Jin, from South Korea, developed the Ultra V Lift procedure using PDO threads. Researchers have conducted numerous studies initially looking at the biomechanics of the technique in human cadavers and relating this to the complex anatomy of the face. More recently numerous researchers have started to publish long term data highlighting the success of this procedure. Studies on changes involved at the cone sites on a cellular level have also been published proving the development of new collagen and elastin ensuring the lifting effect is long lasting. Published research using PDO threads is not as extensive but in the pipeline.

What happens at the pdo thread lift treatment clinic?

During your initial consultation at our London based clinic, we will conduct a thorough three dimensional analysis of your face using the latest 3D scanning cameras and demonstrate to you the regions of your face that will benefit from a threadlift. You will have entry points of the threads marked onto your face and then small amount of local anaesthetic will be injected at the insertion sites. After insertion and placement of the threads they are tightened with you standing up. Once the desired lifting effect has been achieved excess threads are cut away. The thread lift treatment procedure will take 30 to 40 minutes.

Are there any side effects to thread facelift treatment?

There are minimal side effects from this procedure. There is a small risk of bleeding from the insertion sites. There can be some swelling and bruising. This usually resolves within a week. Immediately after the procedure there is some tethering of the skin at the insertion site but this resolves within 48 hours. Risks of infection are low. After the procedure it is essential that certain activities are avoided for the first 3 weeks, including harsh washing and drying of the face, facial massages, further aesthetic treatment, contact sports and excessive facial movements during chewing.

Downtime: Will I have to take time off work? Can I attend social engagements?

There is very minimal downtime associated with the thread facelift procedure. Normally you should be able to get straight back to work and have no problems attending any social gatherings.

What sort of results can I expect?

The results of a thread facelift with the Silhouette Soft are seen immediately. Results from PDO threads take slightly longer to appear and the full effect is not noted for 5 to 6 months. After the procedure we will conduct a further three dimensional facial scan and demonstrate the improvements following treatment. You can expect improvements in jowls with improved definition of your jaw line as well mid face improvements and tightening of the neck. The lifting effect would be expected to last for at least 2 years especially following formation of new collagen and elastin at the sites of the thread following its absorption. You can also expect improvements in the skin regions overlying the threads thanks to increased and collagen and elastin. This is especially the case with PDO threads.
