Thread Lift Glasgow


Thread Lift Glasgow

Dr Darren McKeown offers a cutting edge One Stitch Facelift/Thread Lift in Glasgow.

The procedure can be used to lift any part of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, jowls, jawline and neck.

In practice, I find the stitches to be most useful in the lower face and neck, where other non-surgical techniques usually provide less satisfying results.

One-stitch Facelift Treatments



This unique non-surgical facelift is often referred to as a ‘mini lift’ or a ‘lunchtime lift’ because of how quick & straightforward the procedure is and how exceptionally long-lasting the results are. You can nip out to lunch and return with younger-looking skin the same day!

As we age, our cheek tissue weakens, resulting in volume loss and sagging. Our thread lifts have a skin tightening effect around the facial and neck tissues, allowing you to redefine sagging skin from the first signs of ageing and give you the facial contour you desire.

In Action: Take a closer look at how this restoration was achieved

One-stitch Facelift Treatments



Thread Lift Glasgow

The procedure begins by first identifying the problem areas of excess skin and marking out where each suture — or stitch — should be placed.

Once we draw guide marks, local anaesthetic is injected to make the procedure a pain free experience. The thread lifting stitches contain small cones along their length (similar, if you like, to barbed wire) and are inserted using long needles. After the stitches are in place, they are pulled back to re-suspend the skin and soft tissues whilst the small cones along their length anchor the facial tissues in their new — more youthful — position.

Book an appointment for your thread facelift in Glasgow to take that first step towards a younger looking you.

Minimally Invasive Skin Lifting Technique

The most notable benefit of this technique is that it is a truly minimally invasive way of lifting the skin. Previous ‘thread lift’ techniques used small incisions behind the hairline and ear to insert the sutures and so have been associated with significant bruising, swelling and ‘down time’ afterwards.

The Silhouette Soft thread lifts, on the other hand, have no cutting or scarring and very minimal downtime. With the temporary numbness from the local anaesthetic, most patients can resume normal activities immediately and go back to work the very next day.

What Happens

Immediately afterwards you will have a series of needle marks on each side of the face.

These will remain visible for the rest of the day although most people are able to cover them up the next day with make up. You may experience some bruising and swelling around the sutures, although this tends to be relatively minor and short lived. For up to a week after the procedure it may feel tender around the sutures. If necessary, you can take some simple paracetamol to help with this although most patients do not bother with this step. You will be able to feel the stitches and the anchoring cones beneath your skin especially when you apply your skincare products or make up, although you should not be able to see them.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results are expected to last around 18 months, at which point you can – if you wish – have the procedure repeated.

What are the Limitations?

The treatment is ideal for typically younger patients who have mild to moderate skin excess.

In older patients who have extensive skin excess the threads are not strong enough to provide a lasting lift and other treatment options may be more appropriate.
