It's a new technological invention which

Thread lifting

In the course of time, the shape and appearance of the face changes. This is due to age-related changes in skin firmness and elasticity in combination with gravity and loss of fat. The Thread lift is a new technological invention that offers a solution to the characteristics of ageing without having to recur to operating.

As the skin gets older, the processes in the skin slow down and the skin structure loses in firmness. The most noticeable signs of ageing are skin sagging, loss of volume and the appearance of wrinkles, and they are all caused by a loss of collagen. Collagen consists of protein and is the most important connective tissue that keeps our skin together. As we age, the collagen in the skin reduces and adipose tissue under the skin disappears, revealing the signs of ageing.

We are able to restore volume loss through injectable treatments. This is a safe, well-known method to combat ageing. But what can we do when injectables are no longer enough to combat skin slackening or volume loss? Or when our preference goes to other techniques with longer lasting results? This is when Thread lifting is the perfect solution.

The treatment areas are:

  • Cheeks and mid-face area
  • Contours of the face
  • Head-neck area
  • Jawline (jaws)
  • Eyebrows
  • Nose
  • Ears
  • Lips

Safe and without surgery

Thanks to the wire lift, it is possible to create your facial contours in a natural way.  There are therefore no incisions made. The areas in the skin that are sagging due to skin ageing become marked. The diagrams that the doctor draws on the face and neck indicate the direction where the skin needs to be lifted. Under local anaesthesia, a number of punctures are made in the skin and the sutures are placed under the skin. By traction on the skin through the cones, a lift of the treatment area is reached, resulting in a natural-looking refreshment of the face. It is a very safe method, the threads are completely soluble so that it is not necessary to remove them afterwards.

The procedure takes about 20 minutes. Most patients can be treated the same day after the intervention back to work. Patients who have been given multiple threads can possibly experience more discomfort. The treatment is fully adapted to your preferences and can be combined with other aesthetic treatments.

Double effect

  • The moment the threads are placed you will immediately see a natural lifting effect and tightening of the skin tissue.
  • A gradual and natural restorative effect: In the first weeks after the treatment, the thread with cones supports the lifting effect. After a few weeks, this support function is fully taken over by your own collagen.
  • Thread lifting is a procedure in which different parts of the face are lifted by placing specially designed threads. In addition to the lifting, Thread lifting also improves skin tone, texture and hydration.

When to choose for Thread lifting?

The Thread lift is recommended for men and women of 35 years and older who want to minimize their signs of ageing and only need a small lift. Also for those not willing to undergo invasive surgical treatment and where injectable treatments are not giving the desired effect. Thread lifting is seen as a treatment between injectables and surgery. It is best for patients struggling with:
  • Loss of tissue volume
  • Appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Drooping eyebrows
  • A slack facial expression
  • A thinning of the lips
  • Light circles under the eyes
  • Patients with relapse after a previous procedure such as a facelift or neck lift
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Skin dehydration

Fox Eyes

The Fox Eyes treatment is ideal for lifting eyebrows and creating foxy eyes. It is a simple and safe method of rejuvenation that will instantly give you a fresher appearance. The eyebrow is lifted during this treatment to create a tighter look. Such as the name suggests, your eyes look more like those of a fox. The threads can be inserted practically anywhere, but are particularly popular for use in the face. The effect of those beautiful fox eyes is achieved by inserting threads in the upper eyelid.

  • Long-lasting result
  • Immediate lifting effect
  • No incisions, merely a few tiny holes
  • No scars
  • Minimum risk of complications
  • Rapid healing
  • Beneficial effect on the formation of new connective tissue

Advantages of Thread lifting

It is entirely painless since the area has been anaesthetized. The result of the traction can be seen immediately after the treatment: a subtle lift. The effect is long-lasting: 1 to 1,5 years. Other advantages include:

  • Double effect: lift and rejuvenation
  • Minimally invasive procedure performed under local anaesthesia
  • 20-minute procedure
  • Results are immediately clearly visible
  • Minimal recovery time needed
  • A new production of collagen and increased microcirculation
