Could A Thread Lift Facial Make You Look 10 Years Younger?

Could a Thread Lift Facial Make You Look 10 Years younger5

Ageing is an inevitability, but the visible signs of getting older can knock your confidence and leave you feeling unhappy with your appearance. 

Everybody ages differently, and how you age is determined by your genetics. Some people just have those genes that mean they age slower. Their lines and wrinkles don’t appear as deeply and they look more youthful than their years. 

But for most people, the signs of ageing, such as the appearance of lines and wrinkles, can begin to appear when you reach your late 20s and early 30s. 

Common Signs Of Ageing

The most common signs of ageing are:

  • Crows feet
  • Smile lines
  • Smokers lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Sagging jowls

What all these signs have in common is that they’re concentrated on your face, making it hard to disguise. Makeup can help, but it will only mask the problem, it doesn’t fix or slow down the ageing process.


Why Ageing Happens

Facial ageing occurs because of changes to your skin and changes in the deeper soft tissues of your face. Hormonal changes can accelerate the ageing process too. 

The key things that cause your skin to change are natural ageing, skin type, sun exposure, lifestyle and skincare routine. 

A lot of these are things that you can control. For example, you can minimise the effects caused by lifestyle choices and sun exposure. And you can always adopt a better skincare routine. 

But unfortunately, genetics and hormone shifts are things no one can control. 

What Happens To Your Skin?

As you age the collagen and elastin that your body naturally produces start to reduce. Both are essential for younger-looking skin and as they lessen you’ll start to see visible signs of ageing on your skin. 

Collagen is a protein that’s found in your skin, eyes and connective tissue. It provides structural support and plays a vital role in your body’s skin health, with things such as tissue repair.

Menopause is a big contributor to slowing down your collagen production. This is due to the hormonal changes that your body goes through during this time. As well as collagen reduction, your body also reduces its levels of elastin, another important protein that keeps your skin plump. As your natural stores get lower, it leads to visible signs of ageing such as sagging skin and wrinkles. 

In addition to the unavoidable, there are lifestyle choices that cause you to lose collagen such as over-exposure to ultraviolet light and poor diet. 

Can A Thread Lift Facial Help?

Just because ageing is an inevitability doesn’t mean that there aren’t things that can help you. If you’re unhappy with your appearance then there are lots of non-invasive treatments designed to reduce sagging skin and make improvements to your lines and wrinkles.

A thread lift facial is a really popular choice to reduce visible signs of ageing and make you look younger. It’s a treatment that’s proven to smooth out lines and wrinkles whilst improving your facial appearance by lifting tired-looking skin.

The treatment is a much better option than a more painful and invasive surgical facelift. It’s incredibly versatile too, treating several problem areas such as your cheeks, neck and jowls. This can all be done without disrupting your lifestyle or having to manage a long recovery time.

What’s A Thread Lift?

A thread lift facial is a non-surgical facelift in which the facial skin is lifted and tightened with polydioxanone (PDO) threads. It’s designed to subtly reposition your facial skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles whilst boosting collagen production for more volume in the treated area.

The threads dissolve over time, and as they do so, they encourage the natural production of collagen which is essential for maintaining the structure of your skin, making it cushiony and plump. The thread lift facial lasts up to 18 months, and you can safely repeat the procedure to maintain your youthful look. 

It is also completely reversible meaning that if for any reason you’re unhappy with the look, the threads can easily be removed.   

How Does It Work?

A thread lift facial works by threading dissolvable sutures into your skin with a tiny needle. These threads will lift and tighten your face without limiting your facial movement. 

As well as lifting your skin and improving common signs of ageing, the threads stimulate new collagen production essential for a more youthful appearance. The threads contain hyaluronic acid which absorbs into your skin over time, boosting your natural production of collagen post-treatment, and prolonging the incredible anti-ageing results.

Is A Thread Lift Right For You?

If you’re thinking about a thread lift facial, then you should book a consultation to talk about all your treatment options.

At Elite Aesthetics, consultations are held in our award-winning clinic based in Greenhithe, Kent which is just 20 minutes away by train from St. Pancras, London. During your consultation, you will speak to one of our thread lift specialist doctors, an accredited non-surgical cosmetic practitioner with over 20 years of experience, including several years as a practising GP.

Here you’ll be able to ask any questions that you have and discuss in detail the results you want. If you want to know more about thread lifts you can read one of our previous blogs What To Expect From My Thread Lift Recovery or PDO Thread Lifts detailing exactly what to expect from your thread lift facial.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
