Unfortunately I have inherited a double chin from both sides of my family, put this together with age related jowls and no jaw definition the result was pretty awful. Not wanting to have surgery like my sister to lose these unwanted chins and jowls, you can imagine my delight when I discovered this thread lifting procedure. After every aspect of the procedure was explained to me and the fact that only a GP can administer the treatment I was very confident that I was in safe hands and that this treatment is safe and extremely effective. One side of my face was treated first, numbing injections were administrated to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. The procedure commenced, during which I was frequently asked if I was ok, which I was. There was no pain during the treatment, but periodically It felt a little uncomfortable. The procedure took about 90 minutes. The instant results were unbelievable, my jowls were gone, my jaw had definition and my turkey neck was greatly improved, the bottom part of my face was lifted, the crease lines on my upper lips were smoothed out. Even better, the lines will continue tighten for 3 months, I can see an improvement every day, plus this should last at least 2 years or more. I am delighted with this treatment and the best bit…. My chins don’t wobble when I laugh or walk! My new chin and neck are equally as good as the results my sister got from her 4 hour surgery. I highly recommend Dr Victoria Manning and Dr Charlotte Woodward at River Aesthetics Lymington for this thread lift treatment treatment, you will be in very safe hands, and, like me, you will love the results. ”

I have suffered from chronic daily migraines for many years and I have tried every type of treatment going not to mention numerous different types of medication. I was constantly in pain and it stopped me from enjoying normal activities and living a normal life. After extensive research I discovered people were having botox for headaches, I had heard of river aesthetics in Lymington and as it is run by doctors I decided to have a consultation after which I booked my appointment! I was a bit nervous but Victoria is so lovely I felt at ease. The procedure was quick and after about 2 days I started to notice my headaches were going… Two weeks later and I have had at least an 80% reduction in headaches and while I am writing this I cant remember the last time I took pain relief! I am so happy I feel normal for the first time in years, botox has changed my life and aesthetically I am really pleased too as I just look healthier. Thankyou so much river aesthetics I will be forever continuing with botox! ” – J

‘I try hard to look good and have been told I look younger than my years, but hitting 54 years of age I noticed drooping jowls appearing, marionette lines growing deeper and a turkey neck! I started to feel old and my confidence levels dropped. I have never wanted surgery or a plastic look so when Dr Victoria suggested Silhouette silk I was very interested. Victoria explained how the treatment worked and how quick it was and compared to surgery was affordable so I jumped at the chance. On the day I was a bit nervous but both Victoria and Charlotte were very reassuring and put me it ease. First I had an injection on each side of my face which I could hardly feel and then waited for the anaesthetic to take hold! The actual procedure was painless and quick. I had four threads put in my cheeks on each side. You feel a pushing sensation and it feels a bit weird but that’s it. Immediately the treatment was over I was given a mirror to see the results and really couldn’t believe how quickly it had worked. My jowls had disappeared, married lines softened and hardly a turkey neck in sight! It had wiped years off me! After the treatment my face felt a little sore, I couldn’t open my mouth to wide and eating certain hard foods was difficult but over a week things settled down. When my friends saw me they were amazed how good I looked and in fact one friend after seeing the results booked herself in for the same treatment there and then! Two weeks on and people who don’t know I have had anything done tell me how youthful I look and I just smile and thank them for the compliment. I feel so much happier and confident and would highly recommend this treatment to anyone’. G Lymington
