Spring Threads are a minimally invasive alternative to traditional facelifts that can help you
achieve a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery.
The treatment can be used to address a variety of concerns, including sagging skin, wrinkles,
and drooping eyelids. Spring Threads have a similar elasticity to skin meaning they can ‘live’,
lengthening and shortening, with muscle mobility preserved.
The result is a natural effect that can last more than 3 years.
How Spring Threads Work
Spring Threads® are made from medical-grade polyester and silicone which are perfectly
biocompatible materials that have been used in implants for over 50 years.
The silicone is moulded into cogs on the thread which point in four directions and are very
closely situated. This allows for the thread to be precisely positioned for more effective tissue anchoring and no trauma.
Spring Threads are flexible like normal skin, allowing for natural expression and movement
without pain and the threads are permanent.
This means the results are long-lasting (often over 3 years) compared to other threads which disintegrate and lose strength quickly. Spring threads stimulate the production of Type I Collagen.
This is the most predominant collagen in the human body. Collagen type I is the top choice when looking for an anti-ageing solution to improve skin laxity, treat fine wrinkles and reduce the signs of ageing.
You may experience some bruising, swelling, and tenderness after your treatment, but these
side effects should dissipate within a few days. You'll likely see some immediate results, but the full effect of your spring threads will become apparent over the next few months as new collagen and elastin are produced.
They are a safe and effective way to achieve long-lasting results without surgery or downtime. If you're looking for an alternative to traditional facelifts or other invasive procedures, spring threads may be the right choice for you.
Compared to spring threads, a surgical facelift is a more invasive procedure that involves
making incisions in the skin and repositioning the underlying tissues.
This type of facelift can provide more dramatic results, but it also comes with a longer recovery time and a higher risk of complications.
