PDO Mono Threads & Thread lifts

Mono threads are a type of PDO filament which can be inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern, to help increase skin tightness. The procedure is known for being minimally invasive. 

So what can this type of procedure help treat? 

  • Forehead lines
  • drooping eyebrows
  • sagging jowls
  • ageing skin

The procedure works by lifting things like sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production through the filament inserted into the skin. 

Once inserted into the skin, the threads activate collagen synthesis to gradually tighten and rejuvenate the skin. This provides the skin with a tighter feel and appearance and more of a youthful look. Typically, around 10-30 mono threads are used to treat an area.

There are different types of thread procedures which are non-surgical alternatives.

Mono Threads

Mono threads, as mentioned are smooth threads without barbs. Between 10-20 of these threads can be inserted into the skin to help encourage skin tightening and rejuvenation. The threads are attached to an “anchoring point” of the scalp or face. Mono threads however, are said to tighten the skin but not significantly lift it which is why they are typically combined with cog threads for more lifting effect.

Cog Threads

Cog threads, like mono threads are also barbed however, from the underside of the skin. These barbs form a structure which lifts the sagging tissue. Unlike mono threads, cog threads do not need anchoring points and so are easier to target certain areas. This type of treatment is said to be the most effective non surgical treatment for face lifting.

Screw Threads

Screw threads usually consist of one or two threads intertwined together around the inserting needle. Screw thread has a great effect on giving volume effect on sunken area of the skin. 

So, is the process painful?

Patients may experience minimal pain during this procedure which can be numbed with local anaesthetic, and some tenderness may be experienced after the first few hours but this is a lot less than what a more complex surgical face-lifting procedure would cause.  

This a more convenient, quick and safer treatment to many surgical procedures whilst still delivering the best results. 

Permanent makeup

It is always a struggle finding your lipstick or trying to rummage around in your bag for your eyeliner every morning, but if only there was a way that you could save time on all this. the answer is permanent makeup.

In recent years, permanent makeup has become increasingly popular as it stands as a way to help enhance and bring out your features without having to go through the makeup application process each time. Permanent makeup can be used to define eyes, lips and brows, imitating makeup application, and can be as soft and natural or even as dramatic as you want.

But how does this work?

Hypo-allergic pigments are used to create colour under the dermal layer of the skin helping to enhance your features. For your eyes and eyebrows, permanent makeup can help them stand out more, particularly those who have thin eyebrows. PMC treatment can make your eyes pop through creating the illusion of thicker and longer lashes, providing the eyes with more definition. This provides more of a younger appearance without the need to use an eyebrow pencil again, with advance techniques being the perfect way to create a soft natural look or 3D textured hair strokes on sparse, short, pale, brows.

A list celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Rihanna, also have eyebrow tattoos. 

Along with eyebrows and eyes, lips can also be enhanced, made to look fuller and the shape could be corrected through the revolutionary technology available. The ‘lip brush’ system available uses soft shades to provide a haze of colour on the lips, but can be applied to look more drastic; a perfect solution to those who have lost the definition of their lips through ageing.

Here are some advantages…

  • You can swim, shower, sleep and head out without having to worry about your makeup coming off or even applying makeup!
  • You can have more valuable sleep time as there is less steps to getting ready in the morning
  • This a good alternative to those allergic to makeup products or those who do not wish to use animal tested products
  • If you suffer from conditions such as arthritis, it can be difficult to apply makeup – so this is a great alternative
  • This is also good for those with vision problems who cant always see what they’re applying
  • This can correct problems like cleft lips, vitiligo or alopecia (eyebrows).
  • No more worries about smudged makeup!

But, is this process safe?

100%. At URimage, health and safety is a priority. Every single apparatus used, is sterile and any needles are disposed once used per client. The development of PMC Micro-colours puts special emphasis on skin tolerance as well as the brilliance and intensity of colour. The well known Swiss Institute for safety within cosmetics RCC Ltd., have confirmed the outstanding properties of the new permanent make-up by Wild Cosmetics.

This is a great solution to cut down on the time you take to get ready as well as providing a more brighter, and better looking facial appearance without effort.

Want great results? Be a regular!

When we think about exercise and the results we want to gain through exercise, we know that it takes several weeks or months even, of exercise to start seeing results. Whilst you may feel great from the very first workout, in order to see change, this needs to be consistent.

In the same way, our treatments are guaranteed to give you the best results, but it is important to note that more than one treatment is going to be needed to help optimise the results you achieve.

Below are some before and afters taken overtime.

All treatments were carried out over several weeks which ensures that you are getting the best out of what you invest in URimage.

Like anything, time is needed to allow progress. At URimage, we offer packages from up to £89 per month, including a free taster treatment and weekly treatments and sessions as part of each package which means within weeks, you can see the results you are after.

With technology being non-invasive, this is not only affordable, but also pain free with no room for any damage to the skin or vessels like many surgical alternatives have a risk of.

All our skin treatments and body treatments as listed on the website offer these weekly sessions. But as well as the fact that treatments are more than once, this prolongs the lasting effects the treatments have. If a clinic offers ‘results’ in one session, the chances are this will not be long-lasting and eventually, those wrinkles, dark circles or acne scars will become apparent once again.

Invest in you, and start a membership to gain access to weekly treatments/top ups and the lasting effect this will bring.

What is a ‘Micro-current Non-surgical’ face lift?

With age, weight gain, lifestyle or environmental factors, our facial muscles can tend to lose elasticity which can cause fine lines or a sagging chin; something that is a lot harder to target when trying to loose weight or when working out. A sagging face can cause you to look older than you are and can often make you look tired even if you may not feel tired physically.

At URimage we specialise in providing an effective non-surgical micro current face lift to reduce sagging chins and to visibly tone the skin, giving your face more of a contour.

What is Micro-current therapy?

This type of process has been researched into and developed for over 20 years, used popularly in the beauty industry to help enhance the appearance of skin tissue. As well as being highly effective it is a non-surgical process which means it is a quick and affordable alternative and pain free whilst still delivering results.

Did you know? this type of therapy is used by various big names like; Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Cliff Richard and many more.

How does it work?

Originally used to treat facial palsy, This process involves zapping small electrical currents in to your face to help tone and tighten facial muscles. At URimage we have a highly trained specialist who carefully carries out this procedure with precise movements, targeting the problem area and because of it’s low intensity, this process does not cause a physical or visual contraction of the muscle. Cotton buds are then used on the surface of the face to help transmit the micro-current energy to the facial muscles helping to restore tone and elasticity in the face.

Micro-current therapy also:

•   re-educates muscles
•   increases blood and lymph circulation
•   enhances the penetration of the active ingredients of skin care formulations
•   increases the production of collagen and elastin
•   increases protein synthesis, gluconeogenesis and cell membrane transport

At URimage we offer several packages which include regular Micro-current Non-Surgical Face Lift treatments. Whilst results can be noticed from the first treatment, it is recommended that top ups are performed regularly to achieve the best results.

Invest in yourself and consider a Micro-current face lift today as the benefits are not just physical, but can improve your internal systems too.

Why Consider A Lymph Cleanse?

Did you know that our lymphatic system can become clogged overtime? Our lymphatic system is a vital part of our bodies as it is the network of tissues and organs which helps to flush out toxins, waste and any other unwanted material. If our lymphatic system remains congested, this can lead to a build up of toxins resulting in acne, bad breath and even weight gain.

But how can someone tell if their lymphatic system is clogged?

There is actually a long list of symptoms that could show that your lymphatic system is clogged. These are:

  • Fatigue
  • Stiffness
  • Itchy and dry skin
  • Bloating
  • Breast swelling with each cycle
  • Swollen glands
  • Stubborn weight gain
  • Cold hands and feet

There is also a long list of reasons why our lymphatic system can become clogged in the first place. These are:

  • Poor nutrition
  • Injuries
  • Constipation
  • Environmental toxins
  • Lack of exercise
  • Stress
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Ageing

So, what can URimage do to help?

At URimage, we offer a lymph cleansing treatment to help tackle fatigue and improve your general well-being, de-congesting the lymphatic system.

This is done through a process known as pressure therapy.

Pressure therapy works by putting air pressure on different parts of the body, compressing and decompressing numerous times to initiate lymphatic stimulation. This therapy works well to improve the circulation system, in addition to improving our immune system and can also help with digestion problems, if pressure is applied to the abdomen region. Pressure therapy also works well for those who wish to slim down as this, in combination with a healthy diet and exercise can be a lot more effective than dieting or exercise alone. Pressure therapy can also help eliminate cellulite as it drains the liquids, toxins and fats which cause this.

So, as well as the fact this treatment can de-congest our lymphatic system, there are numerous benefits to having this done and with the guidance from our expert team at URimage, in just a few sessions, you will begin to notice the results.

The lymphatic system is a vital part of our bodies and is often overlooked, at URimage we know the importance of this and work to treat these issues to improve your quality of life.
