Thread Lifts

An innovative procedure with a double tightening and regenerating effect, Thread Lifts aim to lift and tighten the skin of the face & neck. It is particularly beneficial for the improvement of sagging tissue in the cheeks, around the mouth, and throughout the jaw region.  The treatment also effectively stimulates collagen production in the skin to give a boost in volume, structure and support. Ever stood in front of the mirror and pulled your cheeks back towards your ears? Does it look better? If yes, then this treatment is for you!

At The Skin Lab, we’ve opted for industry leading Silhouette Soft Threads in order to give you the best possible results. You may have heard about MINT threads, APTOS threads, PDO threads, or the brand ‘Happy Lift’ – each of these have slightly different merits, but we choose Silhouette Soft as our Thread of choice. It’s a scientifically-backed, cutting edge solution with some clear advantages over its competitors. And the results are there for all to see.

What to expect

How does a Thread Lift work?

Absorbable threads are utilised as a scaffolding underneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the treatment area. Inserted using a fine needle, slight pressure is applied to the treated area to reshape the skin and hold the thread in place. The result of this is a more sculpted, refined appearance.

Silhouette Soft Threads have two main actions – giving an instant lift, and stimulating type 1 collagen over time which also improves the quality of the skin. Silhouette Soft Threads have also shown to last longer than most other products on the market, maximising your results by stimulating collagen over a longer period of time up to two years!

What are the benefits?

A results-driven, non-surgical treatment, Thread Lifts provide anyone experiencing mild sagging of the skin with a lifted, fuller and tighter appearance. Able to contour features such as the jawline, nose and brows, Thread Lifts reveal a natural and defined complexion without the expense and downtime of plastic surgery. New collagen, as well as plumping and firming the skin, also better reflects light, giving you a radiant glow from within.

Another benefit of Silhouette Soft Threads specifically is their shape. SS Threads use bidirectional cone shapes which are dotted along the thread and help them stay in place. Other thread types use ‘barbs’ which not only come with an increased risk of migration, but can even leave patients with a prickling sensation under the skin. It has been proven that SS has the highest lift and anchor of any thread on the market, giving you a better, more comfortable result.

What can it treat?

Ideal for patients in their 30s, 40s and 50s looking to slow down the ageing process, Thread Lifts may be a suitable option to treat:

  • Sagging skin
  • Depleted skin or loss of volume
  • Drooping brow or upper facial area
  • Undefined jawline
  • Asymmetrical nose

How many treatments do I need?

Immediate results are seen following your Thread Lift with continuing improvements visible within 6 weeks of your treatment. Over the following 6 months, your collagen production continues to be simulated with overall results lasting between 12 and 18 months.

I’m booked in for a treatment! Do I need to do anything beforehand?

Great! We look forward to welcoming you to The Skin Lab. We will require you to visit us for a consultation prior to your treatment. The cost of a Thread Lift consultation is $160, with $80 redeemable on the cost of your treatment.

Pre-treatment preparation will be advised by your doctor as this may vary from patient to patient. If your procedure is in preparation of a special event, we recommend ensuring your Thread Lift is at least 3 weeks prior to ensure post-treatment effects have subsided.

What can I expect afterwards?

You may experience bruising, swelling and redness to the treated area over a period of 2 weeks post-treatment. Your doctor will prescribe personalised post-treatment care.
