thread LIFT

We treat everything from the face and body. The Thread Lift procedure is a non-invasive alternative to a surgical face lift. A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, we simply suspend it by stitching up portions of it with suture like threads. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.

Unlike many who offer Aesthetic treatments at Skin Deep we include two follow-up LED treatments with each plasma service! These LED treatments are applied to the treated area during the healing process, helping to reduce initial redness after the carbon crust falls off. The first LED treatment will be around day five, calming any redness or irritation and encouraging more collagen growth to ease your skin’s transition. The second treatment will follow one to two weeks later.

CAT EYE | Fox eye

$1,200 - $1,500

 

WHAT IS THE CAT EYE? 

The Cat Eye Lift, also known as the social media “Fox Eye” lift or effect, is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that creates a subtle, slightly raised wing in the outer eyelid corners. This procedure redistributes your own bodies tissue and gives the appearance of having an exotic yet naturally almond shaped eye.  

CAT EYE PERFECTION

The most natural, youthful and exotic look for the cat eye procedure is achieved with a combination of neurotoxins and threads.

BENEFITS OF THE CAT-EYE

  • Produces almond-shaped, exotic and attractive eyes
  • Brings a youthful rejuvenation of the eyes
  • Popular with young and old patients alike
  • Applicable to both men and woman
  • Minally 

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE?

This procedure is very appealing to a younger demographic, with many patients being in their 20s and 30s and most tending to be under 40. As almond-shaped eyes are attractive and often desirable in both sexes, the procedure is well suited to both men and women.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

The procedure is intended to produce a highly noticeable youthful and rejuvenating effect around the eye, along with a more subtle change to the shape of the eye, making it almond-shaped. Improvements made around the eye gives the patient a refreshed and youthful look, while with the cat-eye effect itself, subtlety is key.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY?

Clients should expect mild to moderate pain that can be managed with pain medication, as well as swelling and bruising that typically subsides in under a week. 

RISKS OF A CAT-EYE PROCEDURE

As with all procedures, risks include bleeding, bruising and swelling. Another risk is an asymmetrical outcome, one eye not matching the other, This risk is minimal but can happen.

JOWL LIFT | MID FACE lift

$2,000 - $3,500

 

JOWL LIFT

The non-surgical Jowl Lift, Mid-face lift, can tighten and contour the clients profile.  PDO threads are excellent for defining the jaw line as well as lifting and tightening sagging skin of the jowls.  Even with slight swelling immediately after treatment, immediate results can be seen.

What Is A PDO Thread Lift with PDO Threads

A non-surgical face lift with PDO threads, commonly referred to as a thread lift, is a procedure where the threads are inserted underneath the skin to instantly and effectively lift and/or smooth sagging skin.  For example the PDO thread lift is an excellent option to correct sagging jowls, defining the jawline or tightening the neck.  Although the threads are mainly used on the face and the neck they can also be used to lift skin or tighten skin on other parts of the body.

 

The thread lifting procedure does not involve surgery. When performed correctly, a thread lift is minimally invasive, very safe and is an effective in-office procedure with little to no downtime.

Are there different Types of PDO Threads?

There are two main categories of PDO threads: non-barbed and barbed:

The “non-barbed” threads come in two main forms: smooth (mono-filament) and braided (twist, screw) and are used primarily for collagen and elastin production. They are primarily used to address fine lines and wrinkles.

Barbed (or cog) threads are thicker mono threads with barbs on the threads. These barbs hook and hold the tissue underneath the skin. When these barbed threads are inserted, the barbs open up like an umbrella to form an anchor or support structure that lifts and repositions the sagging tissue.

PDO threads come in a variety of lengths  shapes and thicknesses. Knowing how to use them correctly and effectively comes with experience, skill and knowledge. Although procedures using PDO threads can seem simple, they require advanced skills to use them effectively and safely.

  • Non-invasive. No scarring

What you need to know

PDO MONO THREAD PROCEDURE

ABOUT THE PROCEDURE

A needle is inserted in a curved direction in the area to be lifted. The depth of the needle is maintained at the sub-dermal level. A similar needle is passed approximately 1-1.5 cm above this needle. Bi-directional threads made of polypropylene are inserted through the needles. The barbs along the thread act as cogs to grasp, lift and suspend a facial area. The needle is slowly withdrawn and the tissue is ‘gathered’ over the thread. Once the desired effect has been reached, the long ends of the thread are then cut off.

The sutures dissolve over the next 6 months leaving no residual material present since they are broken down by a process called hydrolysis. The new collagen and fibrous tissue that had formed around the sutures then continue to hold the skin up and tighten the skin.

The goal of a thread lift is to reposition facial and neck tissues thus restoring youthful proportions and appearances to the face.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

This depends on the area/s being treated, though on average between 1-2 hours. As mentioned the lifting impact or filling’ can be seen immediately, but the process of inducing collagen takes a little longer to see the full effects build up and improve over a period of around 5-6 months. During this time your skin will continue to improve in texture and quality by becoming firmer and more youthful in appearance.

WHAT TO EXPECT POST PROCEDURE

This depends on the area/s being treated, though on average between 30 / 45minutes or up to 1.5h ours. The ‘lifting impact or filling’ can be seen immediately, but the process of inducing collagen takes a little longer to see the full effects build up and improve over a period of around 5-6 months. During this time your skin will continue to improve in texture and quality by becoming firmer and more youthful in appearance.

HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME?

Minimal downtime is required. You may resume to your everyday routine after 24 hours.

You may also experience something we like to call little “zingers” for several days/weeks post the threads procedure. This is normal and will go away on their own.

POST TREATMENT CARE

  • Slight bruising is to be expected – Should this happen apply arnica gel a few times a day. You can also take tablets orally for several days until the bruising has gone away.
  • Use of a mild analgesics may be advised in case of any discomfort – NO NOT use any anti-inflammatory medication. *Tylenol Only*
  • Avoid sleeping on the areas treated for at least 3 days
  • Avoid touching the treated area during the first 4-5 hours post treatment

  • No facial treatments for a minimum of 4 weeks (No laser treatments for 10 weeks) post treatment
  • Avoid extreme temperature (particularly heat) on your treated area for a minimum of 2 weeks

Please be aware that the result of the procedure is dependent on the following:

Medications and health conditions, skin conditions- i.e. oily and poor skin, very dry/flaky skin, sun-damaged skin, loose or relaxed skin, natural skin undertones, alcohol intake, and smoking, general stress, immune system, poor diet and not following aftercare instructions, may affect your heeled results.

Antacids, thyroid and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Remember, everything we eat and drink has their own chemical structure and the electron ends that are unattached are free, make it attached to other compounds inside the body forming a new molecule that may show a different color spectrum. With that information, an educated client may have better expectations and know that she or he may have needed more frequent adjustments than others. The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be, but your clients may need an additional one or two weeks healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protected from the UV rays, the better the outcome in the lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.
