A non surgical facelift utilises a combination of dermal fillers and dermal threads to reposition sagging skin and fat pads to create a lifted and more youthful appearance.
Thread lift treatment uses a number of filaments positioned at specific areas of the face to lift the eyebrows, sagging skin over the cheeks, reduce nasolabial and marionette lines, define the jawline, and reduce double chins. The threads are placed strategically just under the skin in the direction where lifting and skin tightening is required.
Dr Tracey uses a number of different brands of premium resorbable lifting thread. These threads work like scaffolding under the skin to lift sagging tissues and stimulate collagen to replace facial volume and hold back aging.
Thread lift therapy works in two ways. Firstly a lifting action for immediate yet discreet results. Then as the threads stimulate collagen under skin over a period of 2-6 months giving further lift and tightening to the skin.
How long does a skin lift therapy take?
This depends on the number of threads required. After the initial appointment to assess and plan the procedure, the procedure time is 45 -60 minutes.
How long does a thread lift last?
Somewhere between 18 months to 3 years.
Is the procedure painful?
Dr Tracey uses local anesthetic injections so that you do not feel the filaments being placed into the skin. Once under the skin the procedure is completely pain free as there are no pain-sensing nerve endings in this tissue to cause discomfort.
How much do thread lifts cost?
Cost depends on the number of threads and/or dermal filler needed.
