Spring Thread® for Patients

Made in France since 2008

THE FRENCH BEAUTY REVOLUTION!

Spring Thread® lifting preserves natural beauty by correcting sagging facial and neck skin. It works by repositioning the tissues upward, erasing the sad and tired look: nasolabial folds, bitterness folds, jowls and wrinkles are reduced to restore a harmonious and more youthful looking face.

Spring Thread® is the unique cosmetic thread that has similar elasticity to skin, meaning it allows for normal and natural facial movement and expression, and gives extremely natural looking results – the face can ‘live’.

WHY CHOOSE SPRING Thread®?

Spring Thread® can give you what no other nonsurgical treatment can, a truly long lasting solution to facial skin sagging.
What it does
Spring Thread® lifts and repositions sagging skin to restore youthful facial definition whilst simultaneously regenerating the skin by stimulating collagen production.
Why it’s beautifully different
Spring Thread® is the only thread with similar elasticity to skin, around 20%. This means that skin can ‘live’, lengthening and shortening, with normal facial expression preserved. The result is a very natural looking effect.
Longer-lasting
Spring Thread® is highly resistant, composed of perfectly safe and biocompatible materials, featuring flexible and elastic cogs which follow the movements of your normal facial expressions comfortably and without breaking.

Confidence in longer lasting results

Many people wish their thread lifting results lasted longer.
With Spring Thread®, they do.

Naturally, beautiful lifting

One of the most appealing aspects of the Spring Thread® treatment, other than the significant facial lifting, is the very natural looking results it achieves. Patients look like a younger version of themselves and it's not so obvious that they've had any procedure done, patients look very refreshed.

CHARACTERISTICS OF SPRING Thread®

Thread lifting has become a popular treatment option for people wishing to correct facial skin sagging without undergoing more invasive surgical lifting.

Different threads can be made of different materials but many only provide a temporary lift to sagging skin as they quickly disintegrate and are expelled by the body. Spring Thread®, however, is made from more durable and permanent materials - silicone and polyester– they are safe and perfectly compatible with the skin and body and have been used in surgical procedures for decades.

This means that the lifting effect lasts for years with a high proportion of people happy with their result after two years and more. Over the years and due to normal facial aging, the skin will gradually succumb to gravity and the effect of the treatment will slowly fade. After which, people can have Spring Thread® again if they wish.

Along the Spring Thread® threads are rounded cogs that point in the 4 directions and they provide a non-traumatic and effective lift to sagging skin.

Spring Thread® thread is uniquely flexible and elastic, lengthening and shortening with the movements of the face. The result is a very natural effect.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SPRING Thread® LIFTING?

Spring Thread's objective is to replace the connective tissue which has become weak and slack, lifting the facial skin in a diagonal way – upwards and back.

It is ideal for people with mild to moderate skin sagging who don’t quite need or want surgical face lifting.

There is an immediate lift to the skin, reducing the nasolabial fold and lifting sagging skin from the lower face and jowls, and repositioning it higher up the face. You look like you but a younger version. Sad and tired faces are revived as more youthful facial definition is achieved.

There is a progressive improvement of skin vitality over several months as Spring Thread® also stimulates collagen production and skin regeneration.

WHAT HAPPENS IN TREATMENT?

Your doctor will make a final assessment and identify where Spring Threads will be placed on your face to achieve the maximum benefits, and draw the entry and exit points of the threads and their path.

Your skin will be sterilised and hair bunched up if necessary. The doctor may redraw the guide lines if they are no longer visible after the final cleanse.

INSERTING THE Threads

The area being treated is first anaesthetised so it becomes numb.

Spring Thread® is inserted beneath the skin, into the fatty layer, entering just below the hair line, near the temple region. The first thread passes up and exits through the skin on the scalp area.

The lower strand of the thread goes down the face and exits. The skin along the thread path is immediately lifted. The thread shown lifts the skin from the marionette line.

Two further threads are placed which lift the nasolabial fold and jowls. This is then repeated on the other side of the face before the ends of the threads are snipped off.

FOLLOW UP

It is recommend that your practitioner reviews you around a week after the procedure. It is possible for them to make any corrections then, such as relaxing threads that feel too tight, or they can even remove the threads. After this time, new collagen forming around the thread will fix it in position allowing for sustained, long term lift.

SIDE EFFECTS

How people feel about the treatment varies from one person to another. Some say they’ve had worse experiences at the dentist, for others, there can a little bruising and swelling for a few days after. We would recommend putting your feet up for a few days. Here is a list of the most common side-effects which you may, or may not, encounter.
  • Bruises and swelling which dies down quickly and dispels from 2-14 days after.
  • Pain, often a headache, which is manageable with pain killers and goes within a day or so
  • Bunching of the skin, typical at the temporal area, disappears within a couple of weeks as the skin reorganises itself in its new, elevated position.
  • Inflammation can occur and the doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory medication or an ice pack for one or two days

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any downtime?

We recommend you put your feet up for a couple of days after the treatment and avoid sports activities or parties. It varies from person to person but some swelling is quite normal which normally reduces substantially within 48 hours. Very occasionally there can be a little bruising. Your face will feel tight for the first week but relax a little each day.

What if I don't like my new look?

People tend to be very happy to elevate their face but it puts people’s mind at rest to know that Spring Thread® can be removed should you feel unhappy with the result. Sometimes, it can feel a little tight and the doctor can also relax the threads in the first few weeks after.

Are there any contraindications?

You would not be suitable for the treatment if you have any serious medical conditions. Some people are unsuitable due to excessive wrinkles or very heavy facial tissue. The doctor will perform a full consultation prior to treatment to ensure you are completely suitable for it.

How much does it cost?

The Spring Thread® cost depends on a few factors such as the size and number of areas being treated (we can treat the face and neck), the number of threads used, and the location of the practitioner. These factors considered, the price can typically range from £2,000-£4,000. It’s recommend to discuss your needs with one of our trained experts who can best advise you.
