As our face ages, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin. This results in a loss of volume and elasticity in the face and neck causing the brows, cheeks, jowls, corners of the mouth, and neck, to droop or sag, making the face look older and tired. CSD Clinics have performed 1,000+ non-surgical thread lift procedures. A thread face & neck lift is designed to lift or elevate the skin, achieving a natural, tighter and younger looking appearance.
If you’re looking for a way to restore a younger look in a more natural way than face lift surgery & WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK, this procedure could be right for you.
A thread lift in Melbourne is a popular, minimally invasive procedure for men and women, which is a convenient, non-surgical alternative to a surgical facelift procedure or neck lift, without the significant cost and downtime of surgery. PDO threads are placed under the skin to reposition the skin in a higher or lifted placement to give your face and/or neck a refreshed, rejuvenated look of younger, tighter looking skin.
One of the major benefits of a thread lift over an invasive surgery procedure is that a thread lift is non surgical and designed to complement the natural contours of the face, leaving a more natural, refreshed look. This is opposed to surgery which aims to reshape or distort the facial features, often resulting in a different look. If you are looking for a more natural looking outcome that still looks like your face, a thread lift is potentially for you.
The suture material or threads are specially designed to dissolve over time with typical results lasting 12-18 months, therefore there is no need to have them removed.
At CSD Clinics our aim is to give you the best outcome for your face or body. When you book a free consultation with us, we will talk to you about the best treatment or treatments that will give you the most effective and natural looking result with better skin quality. This could come from a combination of treatments like anti wrinkle injections or dermal lip fillers or laser treatments along with a non-surgical thread lift procedure. The medical team at CSD can also talk to you about additional face treatments and skin treatments to increase collagen production to further increase your skin quality.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia; takes less than 90 minutes, no skin cutting or stitching, limited downtime and very natural and long-lasting and best results.
CSD clinics have performed over 1,000 thread lifts using PDO threads. There are many other threads on the market like silhouette soft, mint threads and so on. However, our doctors have had the best results with extremely low side effects using PDO threads for thread lifts.
Thread lifts (sometimes called a suture lift or stitch lift) can be performed on someone who has had a previous surgery, to touch up any sagging skin or droopy areas.
Because only small punctures are made in your skin, and no skin is removed, there is usually no visible scarring.
During the thread lift there should be no pain as local anaesthesia is used. After the procedure there may be some pain behind the ears, so painkillers should be used. This usually settles after 24 hours.
You may be a little swollen after the procedure especially on the outer cheeks. Bruising may occur in some people, but not in most cases. Swelling in most people is mild and usually lasts about 10 days.
Threads will last 12-18 months and dissolve over this time.
The thread lift treatment is not like a facelift as it does not involve cutting and removing skin, and is not a substitute for that surgical procedure. The procedure is often useful for patients who have previously had a facelift, but have a few residual loose areas of sagging skin or droopy areas – it can tidy up these areas. The thread lift procedure is also useful for younger patients who are not ready for face lift surgery, or for those who do not want the scars which may result from surgery.
