How long does it take?

Insertion of the threads takes up to an 45 minutes to complete.

What should I expect after treatment?

As with any cosmetic treatment, there might be some temporary swelling, redness or bruising. This usually passes within a couple of days.  You will be given aftercare advice to take with you, which contains all the information you will need regarding aftercare of your thread lift procedure.

 Does it hurt?

It is surprisingly comfortable – patients describe a stinging sensation, similar to acupuncture. If required, the procedure can be carried out using a local anaesthetic.

Treatments are always made as comfortable as possible according to the treatment and the individual’s personal requirements. Ice is used as a topical anaesthetic. If necessary, a dental block anaesthetic may also be used.
