THREAD LIFT FOR FACE, NECK & BODY – IN SYDNEY – BY HIGHLY TRAINED COSMETIC PHYSICIAN
At Academy Face and Body Sydney our Cosmetic Physician and Medical Director – Dr Gavin Scriven – specialises in Thread Lifting for face, neck, and body. Dr Gav has been performing these treatments for his patients for a number of years. After having trained in thread lifting techniques both locally and internationally, Dr Gav has also educated many other doctors on how to perform Thread Lifts as a trainer for Sillhouette Soft Threads.
Dr Gav also specialises in a variety of different types of threads to address your concerns; including APTOS, Silhouette Soft, MINT and TGA Approved Korean PDO Long and Mono Threads. With Dr Gavin’s broad experience he will develop a tailored treatment plan for your personal circumstances, your goals, concerns and his holistic 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 to appear and will last up to 3 years.
Dr Gav uses a variety of different threads to achieve anti-ageing and optimal aesthetic results for his patients. Treatment areas 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.
✔ Eyebrows – to open up the eyes and raises the outer edge of the eyebrow.
✔ 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 Doctor consultation is required prior to treatment so you can discuss your concerns and Dr Gav who will develop a personalised treatment plan, specifically for you. During your consult Dr Gav will explain the procedure, answer any questions you may have, and after his assessment explain the potential results from Thread Lifting. During consultation, you will be advised of the thread type suitable and how many threads are required 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
