THREAD LIFT FOR FACE, NECK & BODY – IN SYDNEY – BY HIGHLY TRAINED COSMETIC PHYSICIANS
At Academy Face and Body Sydney our Cosmetic Physicians, Dr Gavin Scriven (@dr.gavscriv) and Dr David Ong (@drdavidong), both specialise in Thread Lifting for face, neck, and body. Both Doctors have been performing these treatments for many years after having trained in thread lifting techniques both locally and internationally, and both having trained other doctors on how to perform Thread Lifts; as a trainers for Sillhouette Soft Threads and Galderma.
Dr Gav and Dr David also specialise in a variety of different types of threads to address our clients’ individual concerns and depending on the face, neck or body area; including APTOS, Silhouette Soft, MINT and TGA Approved Korean PDO Long and Mono Threads. With our depth of experience we will develop a tailored treatment plan for your personal goals and our holistic medical assessment.
Key benefits of Thread Lifts:
✔ Minimally invasive alternative to surgical procedures
✔ Provides a natural-looking lift and tone to the face, jowls, neck and brow
✔ Stimulates collagen to improve the appearance of lax skin on the neck, arms, abdomen and other areas
✔ Completed in less than one hour
✔ Provides immediate, high impact results that continue to improve over time as collagen forms around the threads
✔ Limited downtime post treatment
The lift and tone from Thread Lifting can often be seen immediately, and will continue to improve over time as the threads integrate with facial tissue and collagen forms around the threads. Best results can take between 6 weeks and 6 months and will last up to 3 years.
Our Doctors use a variety of different threads based on unique individual factors to achieve anti-ageing and optimal aesthetic results for our patients. Treatment areas may include:
✔ Mid-Face – to redefine the cheekbone contour, firming up the skin and giving a fuller appearance to the cheeks and reducing the nasolabial folds.
✔ Nose – to lift nasal tip, heighten the bridge, slimming of the dorsal ridge, and create the desired side and front profile.
✔ Lower Jaw – to regain definition of the jawline and reduce jowls.
✔ Brows – to open up the eyes and raise the outer edge of the eyebrow.
✔ Eyes – to lift the corner of the eyes creating the popular Cat Eye or Fox Eye look.
✔ Forehead – to stimulate collagen and reduce the appearance of lines on the forehead.
✔ Neck – to give an overall tightening effect including reducing sagging skin under the chin.
✔ Arms – to tighten sagging skin of the upper arms. Particularly useful following weight loss.
✔ Abdomen – to tighten and improve the appearance of lax skin on the abdomen that can appear with ageing, or after pregnancy or weight loss.
✔ Inner thighs – to tighten and improve the appearance of lax skin that can appear with ageing or after weight loss.
TREATMENT OVERVIEW (1 HOUR)
A 30 minute Doctor consultation is required prior to treatment to discuss your concerns, and your selected Doctor will develop a personalised treatment plan specifically for you. Both Dr Gav and Dr David offer thread lifting consultations at our Crows Nest clinic, Academy Face & Body Sydney. During your one-on-one consult, your Doctor will explain the procedure, answer any questions you may have, and after assessment the potential results from Thread Lifting will be discussed with you and you will be advised of the optimal thread type and number of threads suitable to achieve your desired results – and we will provide you with a written quote.
The procedure is performed in our Crows Nest clinic and does not require any incisions or sedation. A local anaesthesia will be injected at entry/exit points and the procedure itself is painless. The Threads are inserted just below the dermis using a long, soft needle or cannula. The skin is gently remodelled and the threads tightened into position. The unique little cones or barbs connect with tissue and retain skin in the new compressed position. The sensation of threading is much like a standard dermal filler procedure using a micro-cannula.
There is minimal or no downtime following a Thread Lift procedure for most patients, however, mild swelling or bruising may occur. We recommend the following post-treatment:
Apply cold packs immediately after if required
Take paracetamol for 2-3 days
Sleep face-up and elevated on pillows for 3-5 nights
Keep the treated area clean for 5 days, avoid makeup for 1 day
