Lifting your skin as well as your spirits with Elionce™ thread lifting.
With time, the ravaging effects of skin-ageing come to us all and as we start to notice subtle changes in the way our skin looks and feels; we may start to feel self-conscious. Sagging skin can appear around areas such as the cheeks, lower face and neck and lines and wrinkles can form in areas such as the forehead and around the eyes.
Most of us would like to hold on to a youthful looking appearance for as long as possible, but for many, an invasive surgical procedure is not really the answer and in many cases not really necessary. At Face Matters, here in the heart of Chester, we have found an innovative and effective solution to skin, which may be starting to show signs of ageing with no surgical intervention or lengthy downtime. This treatment involves the implantation of absorbable Polydioxannone (PDO) threads into the subcutaneous layers of the skin to lift, tone and strengthen its structure thereby improving its appearance.
At Face Matters, we choose Elionce™ PDO threads due to their safety record, efficacy and lasting results. Elionce™ PDO threads undergo a unique, anti-humidity manufacturing process which ensures a stronger and longer lasting product.
This procedure works in two ways. First, there is an immediate ‘lifting effect’ when Dr Gabi inserts the PDO threads using a fine gauge needle or carefully designed cannula, which minimise facial trauma and downtime. Secondly, in response to the insertion of the PDO threads, the skin reacts with a ‘healing response’ by producing collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, the building blocks of youthful, plump, hydrated and smooth skin. Over time and with the onset of ageing, these substances are depleted and need to be replenished. Elionce™ PDO thread treatment encourages more of these vital components to be produced and in turn, this improves the skin’s quality, strength and its overall appearance.
Thread therapy also works best in combination with Botox and dermal filler treatments.
The procedure takes 30-60 minutes which means you could opt for the treatment in your lunch hour! Local anaesthetic is used to minimise discomfort and an ice pack may be offered, following the treatment, to reduce any bruising or swelling, which may occur after the procedure. Dr Gabi will recommend not to undergo any facial massage or further cosmetic treatments in the weeks that follow treatment with Elionce™. You can expect results to last up to around 12 months, making the treatment extremely cost effective!
At Face Matters, we believe that everyone should be blessed with youthful, attractive and smooth looking skin and are excited to offer Elionce™ as part of our holistic treatment portfolio, to ensure you leave us feeling your very best and most beautiful.
