Want a Facelift Without Surgery?
We’ll now its possible at The Real You Clinic. We are offering our new thread lifts in Twickenham. There are two types of thread lift available; Silhouette Soft® and PDO.
They require different techniques depending on the results you are seeking. The thread lift can be used to tighten the skin and lift the facial and body structures. Areas include under eyes, brow lift, crows feet, lifting of the lower face, neck lift and tighten, lip lines and breast lift.
This is a non-surgical face-lift where a fine needle is inserted to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas.
Why Would You Want a Thread Lift on The Face?
As we get older we lose collagen and elastin in our skin which can lead to a saggy facial tone or expression to the head and neck areas, along with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. Losing this protein, combined with a natural loss of fat on the face, can make the upper cheeks and chin look very tired and aged.
The Thread Lift Treatment (Non-Surgical Facelift)
Silhouette Soft (or suture lift) is an amazing and revolutionary treatment to tackle prominent signs of ageing. Without the use of any incisions or surgery, anchoring sutures are placed under the skin using a fine needle to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas. The treatment can take as little as 30 minutes under local anaesthetic and requires no hospital stay afterwards.
The sutures used in the treatment are completely biodegradable, meaning they will not need to be removed. The principle component, polylactic acid, encourages the body’s production of collagen, meaning your skin will appear naturally fuller over time, even after the sutures have dissolved.
The Results After a Thread Lift
The PDO thread lift gently lifts and repositions tissues that have fallen into the hands of gravity, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Hollow cheeks appear fuller, while any sagginess is lifted and wrinkles are eased.
I am a 55 years old and have never had any surgical procedures before so it was with fear and trepidation that I embarked on this venture!
I was developing sagging on my jawline which was affecting my self confidence. I am a photographer and aware of my side profiles and the lack of decent jaw definition was bothering me. I decided to go for MINT Threadlift because I have been a patient of Dr Kathryn’s for years and I trust her opinion and believe that she is at the forefront of innovations in the cosmetic medicine world.
I have to say that the procedure was with minimal pain although it felt very odd. Anyway, it was done very quickly and I didn’t feel at all traumatised. Surprisingly I had no bruising at all although I was quite swollen for a while afterwards. That said there was nothing unbearable and the outcome was as good as I hoped it would be. I felt a bit sore and tight on the lower face and around the mouth at first but that gradually resolved over a period of around three weeks. Now I am absolutely delighted with the results.
I’ve had some nice compliments from family and friends which has boosted my confidence. I would recommend the Mint Threadlift procedure for lifting of lower face, sag and definitely recommend Dr Kathryn.
Downtime After a Non Surgical Face Lift
Downtime after a thread lift treatment is minimal. You may experience some very slight bruising or swelling in the days following your procedure as well as some mild tension in the areas that have been elevated. Dr Kathryn Taylor Barnes will give you individual advice tailored to your lifestyle to ensure your recovery is as quick and easy as possible.
