What Is The Difference Between One Stitch Facelift And Thread Lift?

When you want to revitalise your appearance but don’t relish surgery there’s a revolutionary option! You can undergo a non-invasive one-stitch facelift that takes very little time, is almost invisible, and lasts for over a year. So, what is the difference between one-stitch facelift and thread lift? Read on…

The One-Stitch Facelift Explained

This procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic through a tiny incision at the side of the face. The stitch is buried in the hair so completely invisible. The patient’s own skin is used to move sagging jowls and cheeks into a more youthful position.

Once the skin is undermined a tunnel is created in the temporal area. The flap is passed through and anchored into place with just one stitch. Excess skin is actually removed so the results are long-lasting.

What Is a Thread Lift?

The treatment works by threading Polylactic Acid fibre from the hairline down under the skin of your cheeks. These threads have a number of minute cones along their lengths which anchor themselves into the skin. When in place the threads are tightened, pulling up the excess skin and removing wrinkles, making your skin look smooth and shapely.

The application of a local anaesthetic will ensure the procedure is completely painless. It takes about 30 -45 minutes to perform, and there’s little recovery time. You’ll be able to see immediate effects from shape and tone improvement, and additional benefits will be noticeable as the skin is encouraged to regain its volume and restore the natural shape of your face.

Before the Treatment

You’ll be asked not to eat or drink anything after midnight on the day of your thread lift. Any medications you normally take will need to be discussed and you’ll be advised if you need to stop taking them. Antibiotics may be given before the procedure starts.

Aftercare

  • Ask someone to drive you home and help with daily activities for the first day;
  • Limit speaking as this helps with healing;
  • Stick to soft foods and liquids for the first week;
  • You’ll need to avoid bending down for one or two days after the procedure to reduce swelling;
  • Don’t rub the area when you shower or wash your hair;
  • Avoid facial massages for about three weeks;
  • Sleep propped up on extra pillows to help elevate your position at night for about a week;
  • Take your painkillers and any courses of antibiotics as appropriate.

Common Risks

Following the procedure, you may need up to three days off work, but in just two weeks you’ll be able to enjoy walking and sports activities as normal. You could possibly experience:

  • Bruising and swelling
  • Temporary numbness
  • Skin irregularity

If you get an infection, bleeding, or delayed healing you must consult your cosmetic doctor.

Discuss Your Thread Lift with a Professional

For the best non-surgical facelift you should arrange a complimentary consultation with Dr Q! You’ll be reassured that there are no major side effects, that the procedure can be used to treat various parts of the face, and that it’s perfectly safe. You’ll be able to read all of the benefits without the need to undergo major surgery, and the rejuvenating effect will last for up to 18 months.

      I got fillers done on my nose to mouth lines and mouth to chin lines, I don’t really like needles but was pleasantly surprised as it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, there was a little nip and the procedure was over and done with, in no time at all. Dr Qureshi was very professional, he talked me through the procedure as he was doing it, putting me at ease. I saw a slight difference straight away but as the day went on it got better. I am amazed at the results, I will definitely be going back for more and I will be recommending Dr Qureshi to all my friends.

      My friend Clare recommended Doctor Q to me. I had been going to a different clinic and had some problems after lip fillers but that practitioner would not return my calls and would not help me. Doctor Q was able to fix my lips and I just love them. Thanks so much Doctor Q.

      Dr Q is very experienced and professional! He makes you feel totally at ease and he “really” listens to you & tailors his treatment to suit you personally. I have been to a couple of different places for my Botox but Dr Q is by far the best. If you want quality care, treatments and results then you should definitely go to Luxe Skin. Thanks again Doctor Q – see you soon 🙂

      My sister and myself went to Dr Qureshi’s clinic in Glasgow, he was very professional and talked us through the process of Botox injections, as it was our first time. We were very anxious but Dr Qureshi answered all our queries and explained everything very professionally and put us at ease. I would highly recommend Dr Qureshi and will return as we were both delighted & very happy with our before & after care and much softer younger looking eyes/frown lines. I also contacted Dr Qureshi by text message and he always replied very quickly & professionally. He also does discounts on 1 or more areas. Highly recommended and very professional clinic with affordable prices.

      I went to a national chain clinic before and did not realise that the treatment was not done by a doctor. They actually wanted much more money when I said I wanted a doctor to carry out my treatment. At Luxe Skin, I am always seen by Doctor Q. He is so easy to contact at any time. No receptionists or secretaries, you speak to him directly. I had Botox and fillers and I love the results. My forehead is so smooth and the deep lines around my nose have faded away.

      I’ve been getting botox for over two years now in South Africa. After moving to the UK I had it done with one other provider. It was the worst experience, painful, ineffective and I had a black eye for two weeks. I came to see Dr Qureshi feeling a little anxious. He instantly put me at ease and it was the best results I’ve ever had, completely painless and he got it right on the 1st go. Thrilled with the results and I will become a regular of his now.

      I came to Dr Qureshi as i felt i had developed smokers’ lines around my mouth which had been bothering me for many years. He recommended Fillers and Botox on my upper lip and I am delighted with the results. The lines have completely gone and i really feel like a new woman. Major confidence boost and I will be most certainly a regular client as I was very well looked after also. Thank you.

      A few months ago I went to Dr Usman Qureshi for a wrinkle reduction treatment, I was so delighted with my treatment, I even took my mum and sister along with me this time so we could all have the treatments together. My mum had never had the treatment before and so was a little nervous, Dr Q put her at ease right away and carried out the procedure quickly and professionally. We are all delighted with the results and looking and feeling fabulous! Thanks Dr Q, see you soon.

      The hollows under my eyes used to get me down but I was scared to get anything done. Doctor Q explained the procedure to me. He showed me before and after pictures of what it would look like. And I love the result. I wish I would have got this done much sooner.

      This was my first time having Botox. I wanted to get rid of my frown lines and lift my eyebrows. Dr Qureshi explained everything to me clearly and answered all my questions (and I had a lot). He has very light hands, I hardly felt a thing. I will definitely be back with my friends.

      I went to Dr Qureshi for my first ever Botox treatment, he was extremely professional and listened to what I wanted and what my expectations were. Treatment was quick and painless and I was made to feel at ease. After a few days, I could see visible effects and it is everything I expected. I will now return for subsequent treatments and am very happy with the service he provides.

      Whenever I have had Botox in the past, I had these annoying lines above my eyebrows which would never go away. I went to Dr Q and he got rid of them without any problem! I am thrilled.

      Whenever I had Botox in the past, my eyebrows dropped. I kept telling my previous practitioner but they said that’s the way it will be for me. I was amazed at the results at Luxe Skin. My frown has gone and eyebrows have lifted. I feel so much fresher. I have even signed up to Face Plan at Luxe Skin.

      I wanted fillers under my eyes to fill the hollows. I was scared as this as it is such a sensitive area. Doctor Q used a cannula and was very gentle. Amazing result. Thank you so much Dr Q.

      I used to go to this other place to get Botox done because it was cheap. But the last time my eyelid drooped. I called the practitioner but she kept ignoring me and was very rude. I went to Doctor Q. He explained that side effects can happen but there are ways to reduce the risk. He gave me some eye drops which helped by eyelid droop and after a month it resolved completely. I now get Botox at Luxe Skin. I would highly recommend Doctor Q.

      I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.

      I had my first ever Botox in 2 areas and after just 5 days can see a very positive difference. Dr Q is very professional and his clinic reflects this too. It was carried out after a consultation and did not take long. Luxe also offer payment plans which is also a big plus.I will definitely be a returning customer as I have every confidence in Dr Q. and love the result on my 54 year old face!Many thanks.

      Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
