Thread lift

Thread lift

At De Vries Cosmetic Centre we are pleased to offer thread lifts. This is just another tool in the arsenal against ageing. While Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and fillers have largely solved the problem of facial ageing in the upper portion of the face very little has been done, bar neck and lower facelifts, to address facial ageing in the lower face and neck.

As we age our face goes from a classic V shape to an inverted V shape. This is particularly obvious in the lower face where we develop neck sagging and jowls. Thread lifting, using Nova Thread, is a non -invasive and less expensive alternative to neck and lower facelifts. 

Nova Threads are pre-loaded needles with PDO (Polydioxanone) dissolvable barbed sutures. PDO has been used in medicine for quite some time, particularly cardiothoracic (heart medicine). The sutures are 100% safe and dissolve over a period of 4-6 months.
While the sutures can be used anywhere, this includes hands, buttocks, forehead, quite literally anywhere that needs a lift, they are best suited for the lower face to recreate the classic youthful V shape. The procedure is no more painful than getting injectables such as filler or Botox and it works very well in most candidates.

The procedure is done by an MD who will insert a small needle into the area to be worked on which will cause slight discomfort. The needle will be removed and the suture will have barbs on it. Depending on the procedure and the extent of what needs to be corrected we will choose either double barbed (both sides) or single barbed (barbs on one side of the thread) threads of varying sizes to correct your facial imbalance.

Results depend on the threads used. All threads will create collagen synthesis by sheer fact that a foreign body, albeit a safe one, is in your face, neck or chosen body part, results last for at least 12-15 months, most dissipate with natural ageing. Madonna has allegedly and infamously had a thread lift of the older type wherein you could visibly see the threads in her neck lifting the skin to its new position. The collagen synthesis allows us to use thread lifts for other areas too but again the most common and most sought after area is the lower face and neck.

Why Choose a Thread Lift At De Vries Cosmetic?

Simply put facelifts are expensive. They are painful and cause a lot of down time. You have to contend with swelling and bruising and the obvious questions. There is also an issue of scarring and hidden scars that are always dead giveaways to the facelift.

At De Vries Cosmetic Centre with our minimally invasive approach we can give you a result comparable to a facelift without the down time, pain, bruising, telltale scarring and costs associated with a facelift. A Thread Lift cost relatively little, in fact less than some “liquid lifts” (lifts where Botox and fillers are used) and gives a beautiful, even and realistic result. You will look immediately refreshed and over time as the new “scaffolding” heals into place and more collagen is built you will attain a gradual “facelift”.

So if you are ready to get rid of those jowls, to get rid of the sagging neck, pull up your forehead and brow, or just want to investigate a Thread Lift “butt lift” (yes we do that too) then call today for an appointment and consultation and lets get you started on the road to a more youthful or more improved you.
