Silhouette Soft Thread Lift in Bolton, Manchester

Do you want to correct issues with your jawline, neck or other areas of the upper body? Book a silhouette soft thread lift at our Bolton skin clinic. Experience natural looking results that can last between 12 to 18 months.

What Is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a non-surgical treatment option to lift sagging tissues in the face, avoiding the need to undergo facelift surgery. A thread lift procedure can be used to treat sagging in the neck and jawline, lift the eyebrows and create volume over the cheekbones.

Unlike a facelift, thread lifts boast a significantly reduced recovery time, providing more convenience for yourself and ensuring you will benefit from immediate results. Treatments are delivered under local anaesthesia instead of general anaesthesia, meaning you can drive and take care of yourself afterwards and will not endure much discomfort. A thread lift will provide you with youthful-looking skin and eliminate wrinkles. The results of a thread lift procedure can last anywhere from a year to 18 months.

Enhance Clinispa is a specialist skin clinic in Bolton & Manchester that offers high-quality thread lift services.

A World-Class Thread Lift Expert

Dr Fab is a leading UK trainer in the Silhouette Soft Thread Lift; he uses all the latest protocols and is constantly at the top of his game in the art of thread lifting.

With at least ten threads and constantly evolving pattern techniques – you can rest assured you are in the best possible hands.

All of the above allows for the best possible results than ever before.

Why Silhouette Soft Thread Lifts?

At Enhance, we choose to use Silhouette Soft thread lifts, as these consist of bi-directional cones tied onto an absorbable suture.

The body gradually absorbs the cones and the thread in approximately one year. The results of thread lift treatment can last much longer due to new collagen production along the threads.

The threads are inserted in the direction of the required tissue movement under local anaesthetic. The entry and exit points of the thread are numbed, and there are no incisions made, just needle holes.

Downtime is surprisingly little, there may be bruising and swelling, and sometimes there can be a temporary dimpling and puckering of the skin, which subsides within a few days.

The Steps of a Thread Lift

Do you want a thread lift at our Bolton, Manchester skin clinic but don't know what to expect? We've compiled valuable details about what to expect before, during and after a thread lift.

Before Treatment

  • The first step of a thread lift is to visit our skin clinic for an initial consultation. During this consultation, you will meet the practitioner performing your procedure. We will assess your medical history, discuss your goals and let you know what to expect. We know unknown treatments can be scary, and we encourage you to ask any questions you have to address all concerns.
  • As with any procedure, there are several steps you should take before a thread lift procedure to guarantee the best results and ensure your health and safety. Our practitioner will provide in-depth information on preparing for your first appointment.
  • In the days before treatment, you should avoid smoking and consuming alcohol to keep your skin hydrated. Supplements like omega fish oils, garlic and vitamin E are also not recommended. Aspirin and other blood-thinning medication should be avoided to prevent bleeding and other side effects.

During Treatment

  • On the day of your thread lift procedure, local anaesthesia will be used. This method will numb the area to keep you comfortable throughout the process and ensure it is as painless as possible. Local anaesthesia only lasts 4-6 hours and is the best solution for minimal downtime, ensuring you can return to your day-to-day life as soon as possible.
  • During the procedure, the practitioner makes entry and exit points with a thin needle. There are no incisions, only needle holes.
  • They will insert the Silhouette Soft thread lifts in the direction of the required tissue movement, passing the threads beneath the skin.
  • You may experience moderate discomfort, but the local anaesthesia will limit the pain. Most people describe it as a slight burning or prickling sensation.
  • Thread lift treatments usually last between 60-90 minutes.
  • You might require up to two sessions, in which case the above steps are repeated.

After Treatment

  • We will provide thorough aftercare instructions to ensure you benefit from the maximum results possible and keep safe and well. Our clinic will always be on hand should you have any concerns or questions after treatment. We may also advise that you book a follow-up session to assess your soft thread lift results.
  • Downtime is minimal, so you can return to most activities immediately. However, you may experience minor side effects following the treatment. Bruising and swelling are the two most common symptoms that usually disappear within 1-2 weeks. We recommend you ice the area several times, avoid makeup and limit facial movements while you recover. Complete guidelines will be provided after your procedure.
  • You should see the full results of your thread lift within 3 months. Results typically last between 12-18 months, after which you can undergo further treatments to retain the effects.

Thread Lifting with Silhouette Soft - Before & After



Thread Lift FAQs

Is thread lift treatment safe?

Thread lift treatment is safe when performed by a qualified healthcare professional. Silhouette Soft thread lifts are used at Enhance, a clinic offering thread lift treatment in Bolton. The treatment consists of bi-directional cones tied onto an absorbable suture, and the threads are inserted under local anaesthetic in the direction of tissue movement. The body absorbs them in about a year, and no incisions are made, only needle holes.

Will the procedure hurt?

Thread lift treatment is carried out under local anaesthesia, which numbs the treated area and minimises sensitivity during the procedure. Any potential discomfort, if happens, is temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter medications. After the procedure, our team might prescribe ice packs or pain relievers to alleviate mild soreness, swelling or bruising. Our team is happy to discuss your concerns about pain or discomfort in the initial consultations before the procedure. If you want thread lift treatment in Manchester, rest assured you will receive the most effective care in our clinic.

Are there any side effects?

As with any medical procedure, thread lift treatment in Bolton has potential side effects, but they are usually mild. Some possible adverse reactions include bruising, swelling, infection, pain, asymmetry and migration of the threads. Before the procedure, our team will evaluate your health status and determine whether thread lift treatment is safe and appropriate for you. At Enhance, we prioritise patient safety and satisfaction and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of side effects during and after the procedure.

How long does a thread lift procedure take?

A thread lift treatment in Bolton typically takes up to 90 minutes, depending on the number of threads needed and the treated area. The procedure is usually performed as an outpatient treatment, which means you can go home on the same day.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of thread lift treatments in Bolton you need depends on several factors, such as your individual goals, the extent of the lifting and tightening you desire, and the condition of your skin and underlying tissues. Most people achieve their desired results with just two thread lift treatments. However, some people may benefit from additional treatments spaced several months apart to achieve optimal results. The best way to determine the number of treatments you may need is to discuss your goals and expectations with our qualified professionals, who can evaluate your needs and recommend a personalised treatment plan.

Are results permanent?

At Enhance, we use Silhouette Soft for our thread lift treatments in Manchester. These innovative threads provide long-lasting results lasting up to 18 months, depending on the extent of the lift achieved and your skin's natural ageing process. Plus, with follow-up treatments, you can maintain and even enhance the lifting and tightening effects, enjoying beautiful and youthful-looking skin for even longer.

What areas can be treated?

Our clinic in Bolton can lift and tighten various sections of the face, including the eyebrows, cheeks, jowls and neck. We can also improve the appearance of nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines that extend from the corners of the mouth down to the chin). The specific areas that can be treated may vary depending on your anatomy and desired results. During your consultation, our team will determine which spots would benefit most from thread lift treatment.

Can thread lift treatment be combined with other procedures?

Yes, thread lift treatment in Manchester can be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers, Botox and laser therapy to achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Our team will help you decide which combination of treatments suits your aspirations and needs.

Do I need to do anything before treatment?

Before your thread lift treatment in Manchester, it's important to avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements, alcohol, smoking and sun exposure. Also, arrange a ride home, as you may feel a bit dizzy or tired after the procedure due to the local anaesthesia. Discuss any questions or concerns you have with our healthcare professionals.

What do I need to do after my procedure?

First, take it easy for a few days after the treatment. Avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting to give your body time to heal.

Second, avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area and protect it from extreme heat or cold. This will help prevent any discomfort and minimise the risk of side effects.

Third, take any prescribed pain relievers or antibiotics as directed to ensure a comfortable and safe recovery.

Finally, attend your follow-up appointments with your healthcare professional. This will allow us to monitor your progress, assess the need for additional treatments, and guarantee you get the best possible results.
