New Threads

At the Wellness Kliniek we use the latest operating techniques: slow-dissolving, antibiotic stitches are used to firmly attach the lifted tissue and muscle under the skin. 

Suitable candidates for a thread lift - feather lift

Suitable candidates for Thread lifts are people who are looking to combat signs of aging caused by reduced collagen production.  A Thread Lift is a great alternative to surgery and gives long-lasting results, from 12 to 18 months, and can be combined with anti-aging injections too. We always advise you to book a consult with our skin experts to make sure all your questions and concerns are answered. 

The thread lift procedure

At the Wellness Kliniek we use the latest operating techniques: slow-dissolving, antibiotic stitches are used to firmly attach the lifted tissue and muscle under the skin. The surgeon makes several tiny incisions in the skin, approximately 0.5 cm. The special, long, antibiotic threads are then inserted under the skin. They are tied in loops and lift the slackened tissue. The loops are fixed firmly in place to a permanent anchor point. The threads slowly dissolve. After a few months, they disappear all by themselves, once they have done their job and the lifted tissue has had time to bind to its new position.

Other names for the original threads technique are the Aptos lift, Aptos Soft Fast Lift, the feather lift, the Extended Suture Lift, the Sulamanidze lift, the Serdev lift, the Feather lift, the Isse thread lift, the soft lift, and the happy lift.

What to expect?

The Feather lift is extremely effective in lifting the eyebrows. It is however less effective in lifting the tissues surrounding the cheekbones and firming the neck/jawline. Following the procedure, you rest for a while at the Wellness Kliniek. A couple of hours later you can return home or to your hotel. Recovery is quick and you can already resume your normal daily activities a few days later.
