Spring Thread®

Spring Thread® treatment is a permanent, non-surgical solution to sagging skin. Patients benefit from immediate, vertically-lifted skin and progressive tissue regeneration. Results are natural as Spring Thread® has a similar elasticity to skin, so your normal facial movements and expressions are completely unaffected.

Spring Thread Lift

The signs of ageing can creep up on us. Skin loses its elasticity and firmness, causing the face to ‘drop’ which can result in jowls, sagging cheeks and loose skin around the chin and the neck area. This is due to the depletion of naturally occurring substances within the skin, such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which are the components of youthful, plump and hydrated skin.

As discouraging as this sounds, the good news is that we can take steps to restore a youthful appearance, without turning to invasive surgery and at Dr MediSpa in Loughton in Essex and Chiltern Street, London, we believe that subtle changes can make a world of difference to your looks and wellbeing.

If you would like to revive and restore youth and vitality to your appearance, we offer Spring Thread® thread lifting, a non-surgical yet effective treatment which addresses two primary facial ageing concerns; those of sagging skin and deeper, more prominent lines and wrinkles.

Spring Thread® enables both men and women to experience a tighter, toned and smoother skin appearance on the face and the body, without undergoing invasive surgery. It comes in the form of bi-directional cogs on a silicone thread. Spring Thread® does not dissolve as some other threads, therefore results are longer lasting and more consistent. Typically results will last from 3 to 5 years whereas with other, bio-absorbable threads, the results will last a fraction of this time (12 months max).

How do Spring Threads® work?

Spring Thread® is a composite implant, similar to tissues found within the body such as elastin fibres and collagen helix. It consists of a silicone matrix which provides elasticity and flexibility as well as a polyester helix core which provides resistance and control of the elasticity.

These materials are inert and perfectly biocompatible. They have been used for over 50 years for medical implants. The silicone is moulded in to cogs which point in 4 directions, allowing for the thread to be precisely positioned and to provide a strong ‘fix’ underneath the tissues.

Spring Thread® is quickly and easily implanted beneath the surface of the skin, shaping the skin tissues to restore a youthful definition, which can be seen immediately

Over time, Spring Thread® will accelerate the production of new collagen, rejuvenating the skin and offering naturally beautiful results.

What happens during the treatment?

A topical anaesthetic will be applied to the area for treatment for around 45 minutes. Dr Somji will then insert the sutures under the skin to a depth of around three to five millimetres. No incisions are required as the needle used to insert the suture is very fine. The threads are held in place with the multi-directional cogs. Once the suture is in place, Dr Somji will gently, compress the skin tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are then cut off and discarded. One or more small sutures may then be applied, depending on your individual case and the areas treated.

Spring Thread® is CE approved and used in over 40 countries worldwide. So far over 70,000 threads have been implanted since 2008.

Frequently asked questions

What makes Spring Thread® different to other threads such as PDO and Silhouette Soft?

The effects of Spring Thread® treatment are much more dramatic, due to the construction of the thread. Results also last much longer, as other threads dissolve over time, losing their strength and tissue support. The facial tightening of Spring Thread® is superior to PDO threads and Silhouette Soft.

How do I know if I am suitable for Spring Thread®?

Prior to treatment Dr Somji will conduct a no obligation consultation to discuss your individual concerns and to decide whether Spring Thread® would be the most appropriate treatment for you. The treatment tends to work well from those aged between 30 and 55.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes around 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are to be treated and their location on the face or the body. You will need to arrive 60 minutes prior to treatment, for the topical anaesthetic to be applied.

When will I see the results?

Initial results can be seen straight away, due to the lifting effect of the threads. However, the best results can be seen at around 3 months as the body begins to produce more collagen.

Spring Thread® is permanent; they last for between 3-5 years, making this treatment extremely cost effective and convenient for those who lead busy lives.

Is there any downtime?

You may wish to spend a couple of days at home resting after your treatment, as there may be some swelling, tenderness and some bruising. This is perfectly normal and will subside in a couple of days. Dr Somji will advise you on suitable and appropriate aftercare, in your pre-treatment consultation.
