Thread Lifting at Prèface Cosmetic
Dr Hollenbach has been performing thread lifting at Prèface Cosmetic Newcastle & Maitland in excess of ten years. He has gone through a journey using different types of absorbable threads, using Promoitalia threads and now onto using Aptos Threads (PCL threads) which are the most widely used globally due to significant advantages over other types of threads.
Promoitalia Threads may still be used at Prèface Cosmetic, specifically for chins using iNeedle threading, often in combination with procedures such as laser liposuction.
Techniques using free-floating, absorbable cheek crosslinking threads may be used, which can be done in combination with lipofilling to encourage a cheek platform full of newly laid collagen which can then be further lifted using more traditional anchoring thread techniques after a period of 6-12 months. This may be more suitable for older patients in whom thread lifting is not possible.
