What is a Mechanical Thread Lift and how can I look after them?

A Mechanical thread lift is a procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the thread practitioner simply suspends the skin using barbed sutures. This has the effect of pulling the skin back creating lift and tightening of the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, these types of threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body's "healing response" and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.


Immediate tightening and lift can be seen following the procedure with best results starting to show around the 3-month mark as the healing process produces new collagen in the treatment areas. Results are long lasting, from 2 - 3 years!


Do I need to prep before my treatment?


We recommend prepping your skin for threads using the Ultraformer III, (HIFU). The Ultraformer III is the most advanced focused-ultrasound device for multi-layer contraction, facial contouring, wrinkle reduction, and overall skin laxity improvement. It is the worlds leading medical HIFU device for skin tightening and lifting and will ensure optimal results are achieved by promoting natural collagen production, lifting and tightening! Add to this your thread lift procedures and you can look forward to a much more youthful, bright appearance!


I've had my Mechanical Thread Lift Procedure, so what now?


Once you have had your thread lift procedure it is important to stimulate collagen the natural way and look after the investment you have made to your skin.


Your thread lift treatment will last you 24 months plus if you do the correct maintenance to your skin. The best way how to stimulate collagen and strengthen elastin fibres is Collagen Induction Therapy also known as skin needling, or mesotherapy!


Skin needling & meso stimulate collagen, elastin and improves tone and texture within the skin, encouraging cell renewal to the areas treated by mechanical lifting threads, enhancing further lifting and rejuvenation of skin cells.


The end result is a beautiful, natural lift without having to go under the knife.
