Threadlift by Dr OBT at Halcyon Aesthetics

At Halcyon Aesthetics, we offer Threadlift treatment which is a non-surgical facelift technique performed by our expert Plastic & Aesthetic Surgeon Dr Osman Bashir Tahir, also known as Dr OBT. Threadlift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses sutures or threads to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. This treatment is designed to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, which helps to improve skin elasticity and provide a youthful appearance.

Two Types of Threadlift Treatment Offered

At Halcyon Aesthetics, we offer two types of Threadlift treatments – COG and Sugar Threads.

COG Threads

COG (Cogs or barbs) threads are a type of Threadlift that are designed to lift the skin, while also stimulating collagen production in the treated areas. COG Threads have tiny barbs or cogs that are embedded into the skin, which provide lift and support to the sagging skin. These threads are made of biodegradable materials and can dissolve over time. COG threads can last up to 1-2 years, providing long-lasting results.

Sugar Threads

Sugar Threads are another type of Threadlift treatment that uses threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). PDO threads have been used in medicine for over 20 years and are safe and biodegradable. These threads are gently inserted into the skin, where they stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, the threads dissolve, leaving behind a natural-looking lift. Sugar Threads can last up to 6-9 months, making them an ideal choice for those who are looking for a more temporary lift.

Threadlift treatment by Dr OBT at Halcyon Aesthetics has several benefits, including:

Non-surgical: Threadlift is a non-surgical facelift technique that does not require incisions or general anesthesia, which reduces the risk of complications and downtime.

Quick procedure: Threadlift treatment is a quick procedure that can be performed in under an hour, depending on the area being treated.

Minimal downtime: Threadlift treatment has minimal downtime, with most patients able to return to their normal activities within a day or two.

Natural-looking results: Threadlift provides natural-looking results, with a subtle lift that can enhance the appearance of the face and neck.

Frequently Asked Questions of Thread Lift

Threadlift is a great option for anyone who wants a subtle, non-surgical lift to their face, neck or body. It is ideal for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity and want to avoid the downtime associated with traditional facelift surgery.

COG (barbed) threads are designed to lift and hold sagging tissue, while Sugar (smooth) threads provide more of a scaffolding effect to support the tissue. Dr OBT will discuss which type of thread is best for you during your consultation.

Results from Threadlift can last up to 2 years, depending on the individual and the type of thread used.

Threadlift is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically done under local anesthesia, so you should not experience any pain during the treatment. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or soreness afterwards, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

Like any medical procedure, there are some risks and potential side effects associated with Threadlift. These can include bruising, swelling, infection, and thread migration. However, these risks can be minimized by choosing a qualified and experienced practitioner like Dr. OBT.
