Threads!

As seen in The Times in an interesting article on Meg Mathews, Silhouette Soft thread lifting is a popular non-surgical rejuvenation treatment. After a bad start to the year, Mathews underwent thread lifting as a treat to herself as she entered her 50s. She looks fantastic!

As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity and produces less collagen which can lead to facial sagging and crepey skin. Thread lifting is just one of the many treatments we offer at the Light Touch Clinic to help lift and tighten sagging skin.

So what is thread lifting?

Thread lifting is an innovative rejuvenation treatment which involves inserting dissolvable threads under the skin using a very fine needle to lift and support facial skin. Different to PDO threads, Silhouette Soft threads are made from polylactic acid and have tiny cones along the length of thread which carefully latch onto drooping tissue in order to lift and tighten the area. Silhouette Soft threads encourage collagen to build up around the thread, causing the skin to become naturally lifted as the threads dissolve.

As this is an advanced non-surgical rejuvenation treatment, it is only carried out by our cosmetic medical practitioners, Dr Natalie and Janine Scott.

What areas can be treated?

Threads are commonly used at the clinic to help lift sagging jowls, neck and cheeks. In addition, Janine is one of only a handful of medical practitioners who can use threads to lift the upper brow!

When will I see results?

You will see a lift soon after your treatment, but the maximum results from thread lifting will be visible 3 – 4 months later. You can expect your lift to last around 2 years.*

Is the treatment painful?

You will be given local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort during the treatment and our skilled practitioners use fine needles to make the treatment as painless as possible. After the treatments you may experience some tenderness at the injection sites and some slight bruising.
