Think of a thread lift as a baby face lift, but without the incisions or extensive down time. Threads (or Monofilament PDO Threads) are medical grade threads made of protein. Thinner than a human hair, they’re inserted into the skin to relax tendons and muscles as well as stimulate new collagen formation. The best part? While you’ll notice an instant lift, the effect improves with time. Best results can be seen at around six months and last for up to three years.

When you arrive, Dr Jeremy will inject local anaesthesia to numb the treatment area. After that, threads are placed and anchored through a fine needle. The thread itself is completely biodegradable and dissolves within 12 weeks. You’ll notice results instantly and can return to normal activity. While this treatment is considered a ‘lunchtime facelift’, it’s worth noting there will be some tenderness and discomfort in the area for about a week following treatment.
