The other advantage of the shorter threads made by APTOS is that they come in a cannula, so we can place them through one entry point, therefore resulting in less bruising and less downtime compared to other methods like short PDO Mono threads. So basically, we can achieve longer results with less downtime!

Thread lifting will often result in a skin lift and improvement in skin immediately, along with continued improvement over  over 3-6 month period as the threads integrate with facial tissue and collagen forms around the threads.

The best outcome from a face tbread lift or neck thread lifting can take between 6 weeks and 6 months to appear. Results will last up to 3 years.

Am I suitable for a Thread Lift?

The first step is to book a no obligation Doctor consultation, in which Dr Gav will speak with you about your goals and tailor a treatment plan based on his assessment.

If your objective is to improve some mild to moderate sagging on your face, or lax skin on the neck or other areas of your body such as the knees, elbows, upper arms or thighs; then thread lifting may be an optimal option for you!

During your Doctor consultation Dr Gav will assess your degree of skin laxity and skin characteristics and then advise on whether a Thread Lift and/or other modalities could be the best option for you.

If you have more extensive sagging or loose skin, other non-invasive methods or even surgery may be more appropriate to achieve a more dramatic result. Dr Gav will discuss all considerations with you in detail during your Doctor consultation, which is always required as the first step.

After your consultation, you will receive a written treatment plan detailing your procedure recommendation, along with a quote.

Choosing a skilled Doctor will help to mitigate and manage these risks, as will following the pre and postcare procedures documented and provided by our Doctors.
