Thread lift is a popular procedure to revitalize your face and body and improve skin quality without having to undergo surgery. The benefits of no scarring, minimal downtime, immediate lift effect and long-lasting result, makes thread lifting an attractive option for those wanting to turn back clock and refresh their look.

How it works

Threads work in two ways. Firstly, they can stimulate collagen by provoking a low-grade inflammatory response in the deeper dermal layers. Patients who have a thread lift for the purpose of stimulating collagen will notice a gradual improvement in their skin’s tone and firmness. The second mechanism is to provide vectorial lifting of tissue. This can be achieved with more invasive thread lifting techniques using suspension or barbed threads. Thirdly, it also creates armoring frame and scaffold that strengthens facial stand.


Why we use Lifting Threads?

The big advantage of thread lifts is that they provide collagen stimulation & lifting without adding volume (bulk) to area. Thread lift leaves no scarring, involve minimal downtime and an immediate lifting effect and long-lasting results.

At The R Clinic we offer thread lifts as an alternative to facelift surgery. A thread lift has the benefit of making you look refreshed without making you look different.

Expected result

Results are immediately evident and continue improvement is obvious over the coming month. The absorbable threads dissolve within 1.5 – 2 years, but before they dissolve, they created a support scaffolding of collagen for the skin that supports and lifts the skin for many years to come.
