    At Peppermint Cosmetics Glasgow, our PDO thread lifting system is safer than any other system out there. An effective, non-surgical facelift procedure for facial rejuvenation.

    We use material that is well received by the facial tissues with no complications and in fact enhances the production of the person’s natural collagen which the other vicryl sutures don’t do. Hence why PDO is the threads and suturing choice of all Surgeons.  Vicryl can agitate or even cause scar tissue in the areas they are placed and therefore not always well received by the facial tissues.

    We are also cannula delivery which is a blunt safe delivery system with no damage to nerves or facial structures whereas the other systems use a sharp long needle which if placed even a few mm off could cause paralysis.

    Thread lifts will:

    • Lift, tighten and contour facial tissue


    Thread lifts can help you combat:

    • Jowls
    • Facial sagging
    • Drooping corners of the mouth


    Thread lifts are:

    • A safe, simple alternative to a facelift
    • Implanted without surgery – so there’s no recovery time
    • Long lasting – effects last 2-3 years
    • Effective alongside PRP Facial Rejuvenation Treatment

    Why do I need thread lifts?

    As we get older, the effect of gravity on our faces becomes more noticeable. You might find that your once firm jawline becomes ‘jowly’. Cheek tissue weakens and the edges of your mouth may sag.

    Fighting the effects of aging would traditionally require invasive plastic surgery – and that would mean greater risk, greater cost and longer recovery time.

    But thread lifts can do the work of a facelift without the invasive surgery, helping to lift, tighten, contour and suspend sagging facial and neck tissues simply and effectively.

    How do thread lifts work?

    Special threads (made from a widely used medical material called PDO) elevate the parts of the face you wish to treat. They act as a tiny support system for sagging skin tissues, helping to redefine your facial contours.

    What will happen?

    Before we carry out any treatment we’ll complete a full consultation with you and explore all your options so you can make an informed choice.

    Once treatment begins it will take about an hour. We’ll cleanse your skin and draw guide marks on the areas we’ll be treating. Then we’ll numb the area with a local anaesthetic (like the one you might have for a dental treatment) and insert the threads.

    How long will the effects of the treatment last?

    The threads will biodegrade naturally within 6 months but the lifting effect typically lasts 2-3 years.

    How will I feel after the treatment?

    Aside from a little bruising and swelling, and some temporary numbness of the area that has been treated, you should feel fine. You should be able to return to work after the treatment if you wish.

    Are there any complications associated with this treatment, or conditions that may prevent me having the treatment?

    Yes. You shouldn’t, for example, have this treatment if you are pregnant, undergoing IVF, have a skin infection or an active cold sore. But we’ll discuss all of these with you when you visit us and ensure that the treatments you choose are suitable for you.

    What our Patients say

    I recently had the new thread lifting procedure carried out  at The Peppermint Group by Dr Rita and I am completely amazed by the results. I have always been quite skinny however the older I get the more looser the skin on my face is becoming. My problem area was always the loose skin along my jaw line but now because of thread lifting this problem is finally gone and I finally have a jaw line again. I feel so much more confident and comfortable in my own skin and I am very happy with the results. I cannot thank and recommend Dr Rita and the team at The Peppermint Group enough. The whole experience was pain free and I am so glad that I went ahead with the procedure. It has completely changed how I look at myself in the mirror, I look much fresher and I am loving the results so far. I can’t wait to see more improvement in the next few months.
