As we get older, the areas around our cheeks and eyes lose skin volume due to decreased collagen production. This causes hollow-looking areas around the temples and dark circles in the tear troughs, as well as sagging in the mid face. Cheek lift treatment involves threads being inserted under the skin with the aim of elevating problem tissues mechanically and giving you similar results to a surgical facelift. Following treatment, your appearance should be younger-looking. Once the results become obvious, we would expect you to have more confidence in your appearance.
This nonsurgical alternative to a permanent facelift involves threads being administered into deep skin layers of your face in targeted areas to rejuvenate your appearance. Sagging areas will be lifted giving you results similar to a surgical procedure, but without any scarring. A PDO thread lift will:
Elevate the skin mechanically
Speed up cell regeneration through increased collagen levels, and improve the texture of your skin, and skin elasticity.
Fat tissue will contract, giving your skin a younger tighter look.
The PDO threads will be absorbed by your facial tissue approximately 6 months after the treatment. However, although the threads themselves will have disappeared, the results of the thread lift will be visible for 12-18 months. This is due to the effect of the increase in collagen production that the threads stimulate.Book Appointment
Consultation: Book yourself in for a consultation with our expert skincare practitioner. This initial appointment is a chance to discuss the best PDO treatment plan for you, according to the improvements you’d like to make and where you’d like your face to be lifted. Treatment can be provided immediately after the consultation, or booked for a later date.
”Always great service, always running on time and good value too.”
Treatment: On the day of your appointment, you’ll be made comfortable and anaesthetic will be applied to the thread lift area. The thread lift will be expertly administered in the targeted areas you will have discussed previously with your practitioner. Following treatment, aftercare advice will be provided.
It’s time to enjoy your new look. When it’s time for a top-up appointment, the practice will contact you.
No. Cheek lift threads are inserted under the skin and trimmed so as not to be visible.
You might want to take it easy for a week or so following a cheek lift. Our practitioner will provide you with full aftercare guidance.
We recommend that you arrange for somebody else to drive you home. This is because you will be asked to limit facial movements initially and that’s not always possible, when you’re concentrating on driving.
If you follow the tips given by our practitioner, any bruising, swelling or redness should subside quickly. Initially you’ll be asked to sleep on your back, so you’re not putting pressure in your cheeks at night.
Following a cheek lift, your whole facial appearance should be younger and more rested looking. The skin around your cheeks will look tighter and more youthful, with enhanced skin quality, due to an increase in collagen levels.
