Beautiful for: Creating a subtle lift and tightening effect in an area of concern, without adding volume or going under the knife.
As we age, we lose some ‘spring’ in our skin, along with its underlying structures. Mono Threads are made of fine suture material and are inserted below the skin, where they provoke the body’s own healing response – stimulating collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production.
Areas most effectively treated with Mono Threads include the nasolabial folds, cheeks, jowls, jaw, neck and decolletage. Treated areas appear firmer, lifted, and more rejuvenated.
Once the dissolvable, surgical-calibre threads are in, you’ll notice some swelling and bruising to the treated areas. Gentle, post treatment care is vital and can both reduce these side effects and help them resolve faster.
Tell me about Mono Threads
What happens during a Mono Threads procedure?
Your Cosmetic Registered Nurse applies numbing cream 60 mins prior to treatment. Mono threads are pre-threaded onto small needles inserted just below the skin’s surface. The needle is then removed, leaving the ultrafine threads to activate collagen production to gradually tighten and rejuvenate. Between 10 and 30 threads are used to treat an area.
Does it hurt?
You may experience slight discomfort during the procedure – although we will minimise any pain with local anaesthetic. There’s likely to be some tenderness afterward in the first few hours. These effects are far less than you’d experience with a surgical facelift.
What about post care?
We recommend taking simple steps like using cool packs 2-4 hourly after treatment, for the first 24-48 hours. It’s important to be gentle with your face for a few weeks after treatment. You’ll receive a full after care information pack with your treatment. And during your initial consultation, your Cosmetic Registered Nurse will discuss what to expect.
When will I see results?
You’ll notice immediate results post-treatment, which will look better over the next 3-6 months, and last up to two years. The threads are gradually and safely broken down and absorbed by your body over 6-9 months.
