The Thread Lift (suture lift) is a revolutionary treatment which targets sagging skin, lines and wrinkles, without the need for any incisions or surgery.
The procedure involves placing anchoring sutures under the skin using a very fine needle. This process elevates sagging tissue, ‘lifting’ problem areas and can take as little as 30 minutes.
The sutures used are completely bio-degradable, meaning they will not need to be removed. Their 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.

Most people are able to continue with normal activities with immediate improvement in their appearance. Some will have some redness, pin prick marks, and some degree of swelling, possibly some puckering along the site of the suture, possibly, indentations at the insertion or exit points. The immediate side effects are expected to settle within 2 weeks.
For up to a week after the procedure it may feel tender around the sutures. If necessary, you can take some simple paracetamol to help with this although most patients do not bother with this step. You may feel the stitches and the anchoring cones beneath your skin especially when you apply your skincare products or make up, although you should not be able to see them.
