Thread facelift in London, Bordeaux and Royan

A thread facelift is an innovative technique that gives you same effect as a facelift but without surgery.

Innovative and popular, thread facelifts are a cosmetic medicine technique that allow you to redraw the shape of your face to make you look more radiant, younger, and more well rested. Thread facelifts must be done by a trained and licensed professional, like a cosmetic surgeon.

With over 10 years of experience in Bordeaux and Royan, Doctor Lemierre is specialised in thread facelifts. He can make your skin look younger and softer, while avoiding the inconveniences associated with surgery (general anaesthesia, scarring, etc.).

To treat loosening skin and facial shape due to aging, Doctor Lemierre can perform a thread facelift to reposition and tighten your facial skin. The threads are not dangerous; they are made from the same material as surgical thread.

With over 10 years experience in thread facelifts, Doctor Lemierre has two clinics, one in Bordeaux and one in Royan, where he can help you rediscover your youth by making your face look younger. Thread facelifts will make you look several years younger. You will feel younger, more attractive, more beautiful, and fresher!


Why choose to have a thread facelift?

First of all, Doctor Lemierre will confirm whether or not this technique is suited to your needs during the consultation session. Thread facelifts do not replace cervical-facial lifts. Thread facelifts will only have a significant effect if the loose skin is minor. Depending on your expectations, Doctor Lemierre will recommend a thread facelift or another technique more adapted to your needs.

If you have minor amount of loose skin and you just need to tighten the skin, Doctor Lemierre will suggest HIFU sessions.

There are many reasons as to why you may choose to have a thread facelift:

  • Your face has lost its shape
  • Sagging cheeks and cheekbones
  • Jowls
  • Noticeable nasogenian folds
  • Frown lines

Whether you are a man or a woman, from 35 to 65 years old, this procedure can correct any facial imperfections you may have. Thread facelifts are the solution if you want to look better, more rested, and more relaxed. Requiring no incisions or anaesthesia, this is a facelift without any surgery.

The zones which can be treated by Doctor Lemierre in Bordeaux:

  • Cheekbones
  • Nasogenian folds
  • Jowls
  • Lips
  • Eyelids

Thread facelifts are not very effective on the neck. Doctor Lemierre can suggest other methods such as HIFU or a neck lift for this area.

By choosing this technique you are giving yourself the opportunity to look younger. After a thread facelift, most patients feel ‘more beautiful,’ ‘younger,’ and feel as though they look several years younger but have the same personality.

What are the advantages and possible risks/inconveniences?

There are many advantages to a thread facelift. One of the major advantages is looking significantly younger after the procedure. You will look several years younger. More and more people want a non-invasive procedure that has immediate and visible results.

Thread facelifts not only smooth out expression wrinkles, but the threads also continue to tighten the skin to prevent future loosening. Many people have loose skin. It is now possible to correct this imperfection without surgery. Before this technique, facelifts were the only solution to tighten loose skin.

In addition to these advantages, the threads are made of polydioxanone (PDO) which produce collagen and are absorbable, which means the youthful effect will last due to the prolonged effect they have on the tissues underneath the skin. Doctor Lemierre can guide you towards the best threads for your treatment in Bordeaux or Royan.

There are many advantages. You will not only feel younger, but more beautiful and radiant! Most of Doctor Lemierre’s patients feel more beautiful after the procedure. The collagen, which is present in some of the threads, helps the skin regenerate, hydrate, and look fresh.

Thread facelifts have two effects:

  • An immediate, tightened effect due to the threads
  • A long term effect (3 to 4 months later) due to the thread fibrosis that breaks down over time

In terms of possible risks/inconveniences, it is important to reiterate that thread facelifts cannot replace cervical-facial lifts. They will only have a significant effect if the loose skin is minor. If the loose skin is major, Doctor Lemierre suggests a cervical-facial lift.

What does a typical session look like?

The sessions are relatively short and efficient. They last about 50 minutes. Doctor Lemierre will use a small amount of local anaesthesia to make sure you are comfortable. The procedure is virtually painless.

Doctor Lemierre then places the threads used for the facelift. He will make an invisible incision with a small needle and then slides the thread underneath the skin. Since they are placed underneath the skin, they are invisible.

Depending on the treatment zones, the threads will be positioned differently. The threads will latch onto the weakened tissues and reposition them to their original placement, which is what makes you look several years younger.

Doctor Lemierre will also place two threads underneath your scalp to tighten the cheeks. This will give you an even more stable and lasting result.

An immediate and natural result

Thread facelifts are natural and immediate. The lifting effect is immediate. You will immediately feel more beautiful and younger. You will also notice progressive and natural results until the threads are completely absorbed. You can fully appreciate the final result a few days after the procedure.

Your beauty will be natural, without any ‘frozen’ features. You will look great. It will look very natural because the thread’s only purpose is to reposition your skin.

The production of collagen will continue even after the threads are absorbed. You skin will remain hydrated, fresh, and beautiful.

To optimise the results, Doctor Lemierre can also perform botulonic acid injections or hyaluronic acid injections. You can also combine thread facelifts with a blepharoplasty, a micro lipostructure or a cervical-facial lift.

What is the post-procedure process?

You should rest for 6 hours after having a thread facelift. You will be given cold packs to put on the treatment zones for one hour after the procedure. You should avoid lengthy conversations after the procedure as it is better to avoid moving the threads, but you do not need to take any time off from your daily activities.

In the hours following the procedure, it is recommended that you apply cold packs to the treatment zones. Swelling and bruising can appear and last several days. The threads can cause small ripple effects on the skin near the hair and ears, but these can easily be hidden by your hair and will disappear in the weeks following the procedure.

In any case, Doctor Lemierre will be available to answer any of your questions or concerns. He guides his patients every step of the way, from start to finish.

It is recommended that you put your physical activities, including sports, on hold for one week after the procedure.

Doctor Lemierre is available to answer all of your questions. Do not hesitate to contact him to make an appointment. He has been specialising in thread facelifts for over 10 years and will know how to guide you through the process.
