Threadlifting at Ciao Bella in Bristol

In the world of cosmetic beauty, many people are looking for non-invasive and non-surgical treatments to enhance their facial features. This is because they require less downtime and are a quick fix to whatever problem you may want to solve. This is where thread lifting comes in as it is a quick fix to facelift procedures. Here is everything you need to know about thread lifting.

What Is Thread Lifting?
This is a procedure that is aimed towards sculpting the shape of your face. Through this procedure, you will have a tighter face and a sharp V contour that makes your face much more angular, structured, and defined. The aim is to lift your skin so you don’t have to cosmetically remove the loose skin. This involves the stitching up of portions of skin to give it a tighter look. Here are some areas you can target for a thread lift:
  • Forehead
  • Jawline
  • Cheeks/Brow line
  • Jowls
  • Undereye

Silhouette Soft Vs. PDO Thread Lift
These are two different techniques for thread lifting. However, they both use threads that are made of absorbable sutures. These are made from a natural material that enhances the production of collagen in the area. PDO threads are made of Polydioxanone. On the other hand, silhouette soft threads use PLLA (poly-l-lactic acid) in their production. These are more durable than PDO threads as they will at least last a year before dissolving in the skin. You should choose PDO thread lifting if you are looking to lift a soft tissue area such as your brow. You can then opt for a PDO brow lift. This is because PDO’s provide a much tighter lift to smaller regions. On the other hand, silhouette soft thread lifting is an ideal choice if you want to get more volume. This is because the microfibers used to make up this thread are known to compress tissue in a much efficient way than PDO. Both techniques offer effective results as they make your skin look elevated and tight. If your skin is very droopy then it is better to go for a PDO full face, half face, or brow lift. If your skin is moderately droopy then the optimal choice for you will be the silhouette soft thread lift.

Frequently asked QUESTIONS threadlifting

The procedure starts with the expert determining the appropriate thread to use. This is dependent on the situation of your skin and the area where you want a lift. They may choose from a PDO (Polydioxanone) thread, silhouette soft thread, or a fine thread.
Once this is chosen your face will be numbed either with a topical cream or local anaesthesia. After that, the thread will be laced under the skin where you want a lift. This is done in this way so that the thread remains invisible.
The procedure can last between half an hour to an hour. This is dependent on the area you want a lift and the condition of your skin.
Now that you know everything you need to know about thread lifts, let’s compare it with dermal fillers. Firstly, you need to understand that both these treatments are used to target and rejuvenate the face.
Of course, they differ in results and many other things. What you need to get done depends entirely on what you are looking for. Here are a few things you need to keep in mind.
Dermal fillers are used to target specific areas of the face and volumize them. However, they do require touch-ups from time to time. This is because their lifting capacity is minimal and so if you want to properly lift your face then dermal fillers are not an option.
On the other hand, thread lifts target the entire face so it can be lifted in one sitting. They provide a considerable lift to the face. This makes it look tightened and firm.

With dermal fillers, you will see results instantly. It provides quick rejuvenation to the face. Thread lifts also provide instant results but you will see proper results after a week at least. This is because at first, you will have to deal with some bruising and swelling.

The procedure of dermal fillers takes fifteen minutes while thread lifts can take up to an hour.
Dermal fillers last anywhere from six months to 1.5 years meanwhile thread lifts last from one to three years.
There is no right or wrong answer here because it entirely depends on what you want. This is why there are so many options when it comes to facial rejuvenation techniques.
You can choose the one that you think will suit you best. Every procedure has its benefits and disadvantages and each of them brings with it their own set of results.
You can also consult a professional from one of our experts to consider the option that will suit you best. It is important to get a consultation first so you can get an expert opinion before you dive into treatment.
