You have been looking more and more dull, tired and sad with each passing day, in spite of trying all those beauty routines which promised you sure shot positive results, and you are on the verge of giving up and accepting your fate. Wait! We may have the perfect solution to your problems. Let our experts here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors give you a confidence boost.
Several points such as age, emotional or psychological stress, weight gain or loss and other lifestyle habits such as smoking or vaping frequently can make your face look tiresome, bland and aged. You may have lost some of that confidence of yours. You are not alone in this. About 40% of our patients at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, here in melbourne come looking for such advanced procedures for all their beauty problems.
After your initial consultation with doctors, they may ask you to think about getting a facial thread lift treatment at this point. A facial thread lift will definitely improve the elasticity of the skin of your face. With the natural ageing process, the muscles of your face start losing their elasticity; and you have to suffer the consequences. Parts of your face like your eyebrows, your upper eyelids, your cheeks and your chin start to appear wrinkled and saggy along your skin and neck. Thus, successful facelift surgery will improve the appearance of your skin, giving you a much younger and fresher look.
The most common threads we use for this thread lift treatment are called PDO threads. These threads are made of a protein polymer called Polydioxanone. PDO threads dissolve in your skin with time. These threads relax your tendons and improve blood circulation, boosting collagen production in your skin. This gives you a more youthful look. These thread lifts are also done using FDA-approved methods.
Thread lifts in Melbourne have been in the run long enough to be called safe and almost completely risk-free. At Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, you will notice the result of your thread lift treatment almost immediately after the procedure. After about 10 – 14 days of the procedure, the protein in the PDO threads starts breaking down naturally. Over the coming weeks, you will see the results continue to improve, peaking at about 5 – 6 months.
Are you wondering how long the effects of your thread lift treatment will last? We have the answer. The results of this treatment can even last up to 3 years. The duration depends largely on your lifestyle, your own body’s metabolism, and also the effectiveness of the PDO threads. These are important in maintaining the tightening and glow of your skin.
Thread lifts here in Melbourne using special PDO threads will be good at maintaining a healthy and smooth texture of the treated skin giving you the confidence boost you need to face the world. With very less risk involved and no required downtime or strenuous aftercare required post-treatment, PDO thread lifts provide much more benefits than other surgical procedures.

Let us see what you expect from your life after getting a thread lift treatment. We will tell you what changes will help your life post the treatment :
Ask for medications that will help with your pain :
You will still experience a little bit of pain and swelling in the treatment area after your thread lift. Ask your doctor for pain medications to help with the pain and discomfort.
Take rest :
As with any procedure that needs some leave some kind of stress on your body, you will need a few hours of rest to take off the toll. Additionally, it is recommended that you sleep on your back.
Even though thread lifts are meant to stimulate the production of collagen in your face, you still need to follow a proper skincare routine and prevent your face from becoming dry and patchy. Moisturizing properly is highly recommended.
Eat Well :
A good and balanced meal with a healthy lifestyle is essential to heal your face as well as maintain your glow. Being healthy will also stop your face from looking bloated.
Regular Breaks From the electronic screen :
Take breaks from electronic devices that may sag your face down again, or form jowls or age lines like wrinkles. Devices like laptops, mobiles, television and others can put too much stress around your eyes, making you look tired, which can increase the signs of ageing.
Wearing Makeup for 48 Hours :
You should avoid wearing all kinds of makeup for at least 48 hours after the treatment to help your skin to breathe and heal. Makeup can even cause an infection at this point.
Sun Exposure :
Too much sun exposure can cause your skin to lose collagen and increase signs of ageing. Try not to expose your face to direct sunlight. Use a sunscreen of SPF 50 ++ or higher.
Smoking and Alcohol :
Try not to drink alcohol or smoke at least 1 – 3 months after you get a thread lift.
Solid Food :
Try to avoid hard and chewy foods, which may put a strain on the threads on your face. Eat softer foods that are easier to chew for at least a month.
Strenuous Activity :
Avoid rubbing your face hard any time of the day. High-strung exercises which require putting pressure on your face and neck muscles are another no-no after the procedure, at least for a month.
If you are still wondering if you should get the thread lift, consider this – a whole facelift can address problems such as saggy eyebrows and upper eyes, it can cover some signs of ageing like wrinkles and crow’s feet. It can also smoothen your forehead and stress lines present there as well. Facelifts also improve your jawline and double chin up to some extent; which makes it an all-rounder. All these other issues can be addressed fully with other procedures like blepharoplasty, genioplasty and others, but a facial thread lift will help solve these problems at least up to some extent thus, giving you a whole lot of confidence boost.
