What are the advantages of Thread Lifting?

Compared to other techniques like surgical lifting, thread lifting offers many advantages such as:

It’s performed under local anaesthetic,

No hospitalization necessary,

No scars,

Minimal downtime,

Reduced infection risk,

Furthermore, the suspension effect exerts an upward motion on the skin and so is particularly suitable for treating tissue sagging.

Is the Spring Thread® procedure painful?

No. The procedure is generally performed under local anaesthesia and sometimes under light sedation if you’re feeling anxious.

How much does it cost?

As with many aesthetic treatments, the cost of the treatment depends on many factors:

– The number of areas to be treated

– The number and type of threads inserted

– If it’s a combined treatment

– The location of the clinic

During the first consultation, your doctor will provide you their recommendations and an accurate quotation.

The price can vary between £1,500 to £4,000 depending on these factors.

What is the post-procedure care ?

After a Spring Thread® treatment, a few days of rest are recommended:

Keep jaw movements to a minimum,

Try to sleep on your back,

Wash your face in an upward direction only,

Do not massage the skin,

Flexible, our threads are easy to insert and do not cause any discomfort,

Elastic, they follow the facial movements,

Non-aggressive cogs, there is no pain risk when the face moves,

Large number of cogs providing strong anchorage. The tissues are effectively tightened.

Permanent, the result lasts far longer than other threads,

The achieved result is exceptionally natural. The face remains very active, with a reshaped oval, revitalized lip contours and a more defined look around the eyes. No deadpan aspect.

Which parts of the face and body can be treated?

Spring Thread® is suitable for both face and body skin sagging.

What results can I expect?

An immediate lifting of the facial skin, restoring facial definition and contours to a more youthful appearance.
