At Hardwick Clinic we offer bespoke non-surgical facelifts using the latest products and techniques. This procedure involves the advanced application of a number of treatments, including: Elionce PDO threads, Dermal fillers or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HiFu) by our doctor to dramatically improve the appearance of your face without needing to undergo plastic surgery. Your doctor will discuss which of these three approaches may be best suited for your needs. Mild lifting can be achieved with HiFu, more substantial effects require fillers or threads, or indeed a combination of treatments..
We use Elionce PDO Threads to directly pull back the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and signs of ageing. When combined with advanced application of dermal fillers, this can produce fantastic results without plastic surgery. Our non-surgical facelift we can disguise eye bags, add volume to cheeks and create/enhance the appearance of cheekbones. We restore the volume that gets lost as one gets older. This is also useful for patients who have recently lost excess weight and want to restore volume to the face. We can enhance lip volume (without the so-called “trout pout”) and open eyes. This procedure can make jowls disappear and significantly reduce the appearance of naso-labial folds.
A non-surgical facelift with threads is sometimes called a “one cut facelift” or a “one hour facelift”. With a PDO thread lift procedure our aim is to offer a natural-looking improvement to the skin and facial structure. We have been trained in advanced PDO thread lift therapy performed in our clinic with Elionce PDO threads, which are the best available. This non-surgical procedure is sometimes referred to as the ’20-minute facelift’, because of its immediate results, along with minimal downtime and discomfort.
Elionce™ threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a soluble synthetic material that has been used for over 30 years in the medical industry and used widely for surgery worldwide. Research has shown that a PDO thread lift, not only tightens the skin, but also collagen production via direct stimulation. Additionally, elastin and hyaluronic acid are stimulated in thread lift treatments. These are the important factors for a more youthful and plumper face. This procedure can offer similar results to a surgical facelift without the need for surgery.
The PDO threads are introduced beneath the skin into the fat or muscle layers using a fine needle injection, meaning that no cuts or incisions are required. Our specifically designed needles and cannulas are aimed at achieving a smooth and comfortable treatment. A lifting effect is almost instantaneous depending on the area treated, rejuvenating and regenerating the skin whilst bringing a natural improvement to facial structure. Recovery times are usually less than one week, and the results from the procedure will continue to develop over the days and weeks after treatment.
