Q. What age range can be treated? Is it suitable for both men and women?
A. The treatment is safe for anyone over 18, with improvements being evident in the over 65s

Q. Are there any medical conditions which prevent eligibility for treatment?
A. A complete medical history will be taken prior to treatment. It would be unusual for a patient to be ineligible as the treatment is non surgical and the products are non-allergenic. We would always recommend a free consultation ahead of any treatment.

Q. What benefit can the treatment have for patients who don’t have sagging skin – eg 18-35 year olds?
A. Many patients are having the treatment because they wish to achieve different facial contours or they wish to tighten a double-chin. Some patients may benefit from skin tightening in other areas such as fleshy knees and flabby buttocks

Q. Does the treatment aid weight loss?
A. No. The treatment is designed to tighten and contour.

Q. Is the treatment suitable for sun-damaged skin?
A. Yes – we have found that those with sun-damaged skin are seeing huge improvements

Q. Is the skin quality improved?
A. Yes – significantly so in more mature skins. This is because the implanted threads encourage the regrowth of natural collagen. This means the skin may appear rejuvenated as well as lifted and tightened.

Q. Is the treatment painful?
A. Whilst there may be some slight discomfort during treatment, the use of topical anaesthetic ensures that such discomfort is minimal. In fact, some patients say they can’t feel a thing

Q. How long does the treatment take?
A. It depends on the area covered and the number of threads required. There will be an initial wait of around 30-35 minutes for the anaesthetic cream to be effective. In most cases, you will be in the clinic for 1-1 ½ hours

Q. Will I need time off work?
A. No. You will be fine to continue working straight after treatment

Q. Will there be swelling and bruising? How long will it last?
A. The swelling is minimal and usually abates within 24 hours. If you are in the minority of patients who do have bruising, it will be minimal and will usually have disappeared within a week or so

Q. Can you apply make-up after treatment?
A. Yes, makeup can be applied without a problem though we recommend waiting for 24 hours to help reduce the risk of infection

Q. How many PDO threads are required per treatment?
A. On the face, around 64 are required for an initial lift to the upper neck, jawline and cheeks all the way up to and including the tear troughs. The number is significantly less for other areas
Q. Why so many threads?
A. The skin on the face is pulled in many different directions by the various muscles that support it, so whilst the sagging may appear to be downwards, it is necessary to work with the natural facial contours. The threads are placed in a kind of ‘lattice’ to help build a mesh under the skin surface, and then to tighten the sagging skin in the direction most natural to the face

Q. Is the treatment long lasting?
A. The initial treatment can last up to 18 months, with only minimal top up thereafter

Q. How much top up is necessary after 18 months?
A. It is entirely dependant on the patient. Some may not require any at all, and others may require only a very few threads.

Q. What is the cost of a top up? Will it be the same as the initial treatment?
A. You will only pay for the number of threads used. For example, if you only require a minor top up you will only pay for the treatment as a proportion of the original cost. Your practitioner will be able to discuss this with you

Q. Are there any payment plans available like the ones you have for dermal fillers and Botox TM, specifically for the threadlift to cover maintenance top-up costs?
A. Yes, we are introducing these plans in April 2015. The monthly costs will be based on your initial treatment area and will cover you for future top-ups.

Q. What will the monthly cost for the payment plan be?
A. The annual cost will be a fraction of the original cost. You can discuss this with your practitioner

Q. Do you offer discounts to patients already on the filler and Botox TM payment plan?
A. Yes – we offer 15% off the initial treatment and 10% off the monthly maintenance plan

Q. Can you still have fillers and/ or Botox TM alongside the threadlift?
A. Yes. In fact the treatments work extremely well in conjunction with each other as each one has a different function and result

Q. Do you have any before and after pictures of patients you have treated?
A. Yes. We are happy to be able to present pictures as well as a diary on our website

Q. How many patients have you treated?
A. Since the treatment first became available in our clinics in December last year, we have been very busy and we are consistently having fantastic results

We are happy to answer any other questions you may have. Why not book a free consultation or
