What is a thread lift?
Threads an innovative facial rejuvenation procedure designed to gently elevate sagging brows, cheeks and jowls. It is a convenient, less invasive alternative to traditional facelifts, designed for people experiencing early signs of ageing. Oolala clinic only uses the best threads to achieve the best result for our clients, these include Silhouette Soft and PDO threads. During a thread facelift, the cosmetic surgeon inserts thin threads into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance.
How long does a thread lift take?
This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in two hours. When you arrive at the clinic we will take before photos and complete all needed documentation, afterwards you will be organised for the procedure.
Am I able to drive home after my procedure?
Clients will be made comfortable during the procedure using anaesthetic administered by Doctor Jeffery. The clinic asks that all patients organise pre-payment and also a reliable driver to pick them up after the procedure.
Am I a good candidate for threads?
The best candidates for a thread facelift are in their 30s to 60s and have relatively good skin tone. Most are beginning to experience sagging in their face or neck but do not have excessively loose skin or drooping facial areas that might require more rigorous facelift surgery. If signs of aging are relatively minimal, a thread lift may be a good way to make cosmetic enhancements while avoiding facelift scarring and other potential side effects, which sometimes occur after more intensive surgical procedures.
How long will my result last?
Results will be seen immediately post treatment, but will progressively improve over the following 6 weeks- 6 months. The result time will vary from client to client depending on your health, lifestyle and skincare regime. Clients can expect for the result to last for at least 18 months usually, with some people last much longer.
