Are you fed up and frustrated with loose, saggy skin? Do you want a non-surgical way to reduce wrinkles and give your face a natural-looking lift without going under the knife? A Thread Lift could be the answer.
A Thread Lift is a non surgical thread face lift procedure that lifts and smooths the skin on your face, neck or jowls. Using a fine thread to pull the skin tighter, whilst also stimulating the natural production of collagen, the Thread Lift gives you a significantly younger, firmer appearance.
Also known as the “one stitch facelift” or “puppet facelift”, this revolutionary treatment offers you the results of a surgical facelift without the pain, recovery time or risks associated with traditional cosmetic surgery.
During the procedure, the ‘threads’ are inserted under the surface of the skin into the subdermis. These tiny threads anchor to the skin, keeping it in place as the threads are lifted, to create a smoother and tighter appearance. Made from PDO (Polydioxanone), they also stimulate a collagen production response.
Lifting and tightening your face, giving the skin back its strength and elasticity and providing you with a noticeably younger-looking appearance. With treatments like these fast becoming popular it’s no surprise that The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons reported a 44 per cent drop in traditional facelift procedures in 2018 alone!
Topical and Local
The Thread Lift for face is one of the most effective treatments for instantly treating the visible signs of ageing. Giving you an immediate natural-looking lift while also helping to regenerate and improve your skin on a cellular level for a long-lasting result.
A Thread Lift is the perfect treatment for:
From the age of around 25, collagen production in your skin slows down and continues to decrease as we age. Collagen is the substance that gives your skin its elasticity, strength and bounce. Creating that smoothness and firmness that we associate with a youthful complexion.
This reduction in collagen causes your skin to lose some of its elasticity, resulting in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and drooping of the skin.
For many years, if you wanted a facelift effect then surgery was the only way to go. But that’s no longer the case. The Thread Lift has revolutionised the aesthetic industry, giving people a safe, effective alternative that not only gives impressive immediate results but also improves skin condition and stimulates regeneration.
A Thread Lift works in two ways: it uses a drawstring-type effect to pull the skin tight and it stimulates the natural production of more collagen.
The theory is pretty simple. Your Aesthetic Doctor will carefully insert the thread around the edge of your face, neck or area you wish to treat. Once complete the threads are gently pulled to lift and tighten the skin, giving you an instantly more youthful appearance.
These threads anchor to the skin, allowing it to be pulled tighter and also stimulate the body to start healing and producing more collagen. While you will have instantly visible results from the treatment, the full benefits are visible after 6-12 weeks when your body has had time to regenerate and produce new cells.
A Thread Lift isn’t just any thread lift. While other threads can physically lift your skin, PDO threads are the only treatment that provides an immediate physical lifting effect, as well as a biological stimulating the natural production of collagen.
Our thread is made from a special substance called PDO (polydioxanone). This substance has been used in the medical field for many years in suture thread, orthopedics, plastic surgery, drug delivery, cardiovascular applications, and tissue engineering. It’s highly compatible with the body and completely biodegradable, making negative reactions very unlikely.
Polydioxanone helps to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production processes, giving the skin back its strength and elasticity.
This unique combination of mechanical lifting and cellular regeneration is what makes the PDO Thread Lift so powerful, giving people immediately noticeable results and long-lasting regeneration.
If you’re considering a Thread Lift then the first step is to book a consultation with our Medical Aesthetic Doctor.
During your consultation, the Doctor will ask you about the results you’re looking to achieve from your Thread Lift and answer and questions you might have about the treatment. They’ll help you understand what to expect from the procedure, discussing potential results, benefits and risks, so that you can make a fully informed choice on whether this treatment is right for you.
It’s important that you feel comfortable with your chosen clinic so this consultation also gives you a chance to see our purpose-built clinic in peaceful Greenhithe, Kent, and meet the Aesthetic Doctor and the team here at Elite Aesthetics.

We offer Thread Lift for Eyes, primarily to help lift hooded eye lids without the use of surgery. There is a celebrity trend for ‘Fox Eyes’, which we do not offer as we specialise in natural looking results.
Thread lift results will depend upon the type of thread being used. The latest thread by APTOS can last over 3 years as they not only lift the skin but also encourage collagen regrowth.
When you have your face to face consultation for a thread lift, please ensure that you ask for some recent before and afters for Thread Lifts.
In the run-up to your Thread Lift treatment, you can continue your usual face care routine, but there are a few things to avoid if you want the best results.
It’s best to keep your skin hydrated before the procedure, so drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and smoking for the week before treatment where possible.
For 24 hours before your treatment, you will need to avoid blood thinners such as aspirin and other anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen or Aleve. This helps to reduce the risk of unnecessary bleeding or bruising following the treatment.
On the day of your treatment, your Aesthetic Doctor will mark the areas to be treated and apply a local anaesthetic to help keep you comfortable. The thread is then inserted into the skin and gently put into place.
After inserting the suture, the Doctor will then apply slight pressure on the treated area to reshape the surface of the skin, smoothing and tightening it for instant, visible results.
The treatment usually takes around an hour, so you can fit it easily into your busy schedule. The lifting effect is immediate, with the full results continuing to develop in the coming weeks as your body creates new collagen.
As the Thread Lift is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure there’s usually no recovery period required and you can get back to your day as soon as you leave the clinic.
You will need to avoid wearing makeup for 1-2 days to give your skin time to recover. It will be necessary to sleep on your back for around 7 day. You must also avoid high impact sports, saunas, dental treatments and facial or beauty treatments for several weeks while your skin fully heals.
You may experience slight bruising or discomfort for a few days after the treatment, but this is usually very mild and dissipates very quickly.
