Completely tailored to each individual patient, our signature RiverLIFT procedure redefines your facial contours and ignites the body’s own natural collagen production. It is a simple, non-surgical procedure taking 60 minutes, but lasting 18-24 months, which combines innovative thread lift technologies & next generation filler treatments to address the signs of ageing and achieve the most natural looking results.
Created by two of the UK’s leading thread doctors, River Aesthetics’ own Dr Charlotte Woodward and Dr Victoria Manning, the RiverLIFT is the ultimate non-surgical aesthetic face and neck tightening treatment. This innovative procedure results in a redefined jaw line, reduced jowls, less evident nose to mouth lines, increased volume in the mid face and contour of cheek, rejuvenated neck by tightening laxity and reduced crêpey skin.
The RiverLIFT is made up of a two-stage process which begins with a collagen-stimulating dermal filler, used to volumise and improve the skin, followed by the repositioning of the skin using Silhouette Soft or PDO Threads. There must be notable breaks between the two stages to allow optimal results from the collagen stimulation, therefore it can normally take 3 months to complete the treatment, with results seen immediately.

The threads remain under the skin for approximately six months, and are then naturally broken down by the body, producing collagen that will maintain the lift. If combined with muscle relaxing injections to stop the downward pull around the eye, we can expect the results to last 18-24 months for the face and 12-18 months for the brow area.
We always recommend collagen supplements to optimise your results. In the clinic we encourage both Zenii and Skinade supplements to be taken a few weeks before treatment.
It is a relatively pain-free, fast procedure carried out using local anaesthetic.
If you have thin skin, we opt for a three phased approach by adding a course of BTL Exilis Ultra 360™ skin tightening to boost the collagen and improve the skin prior to volumising and lifting.
The treatment is completely tailored to you, therefore the products we use are determined by what you need. In Stage 1, we use Ellanse® or a Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler to volumise and improve your skin, and in Stage 2 we reposition your skin using Silhouette Soft® or PDO Threads.
Unfortunately, if you have an auto-immune condition such as Vitiligo, scleroderma or Crohn’s disease we are unable to carry out the procedure. This is because your skin can be unpredictable in its response to collagen stimulation.
