Actress Gillian Taylforth has ‘non-surgical face lift’ that uses a dissolvable thread to restore her skin ahead of her 60th birthday
Hollyoaks and EastEnders actress underwent new thread treatment
Takes about half an hour
Polylactic acid thread goes through skin after local anesthetic injections
Gillian Taylforth, who is best known for her role as Kathy Beale on EastEnders, is looking to refresh and rejuvenate as she approaches her 60th birthday.
The 59-year-old, who also appeared on Footballer’s Wives and The Bill, is celebrating her best skin with a non-surgical facelift called the Silhouette Soft.
The star was treated by Dr Aamer Khan at the Harley Street Skin Clinic – and she’s now the face of the effective procedure, which uses dissolvable thread to remove wrinkles.
During the procedure, which takes about half an hour, a thread made of polylactic acid is drawn through the skin.
‘The thread is used to give a tailor-made result, lifting specific parts of the face.’
This acid is completely biodegradable and acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body so that it produces its own collagen.
This action, which continues over time, apparently helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restore shapeliness to the face gradually and naturally.
The thread dissolves completely after 18 months and promises to have an immediate lift and lasting regenerative effect.
