Going For Gold: Gold Thread Skin Rejuvenation Wednesday 27 August 2008 PDF Print Gold has been used since Egyptian times to rejuvenate the skin. Now this ancient wisdom has arrived in the UK and is fast becoming the new anti ageing sensation. Dr Alexandra Chambers, a Cosmetic Doctor in Harley Street is one of the few doctors in Europe to provide the pure Gold Thread Skin Rejuvenation treatment which can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, hands and buttocks or anywhere on the body where firmness and elasticity is impaired. This non-surgical thread lift is rumored to be the gold standard for celebrities such as Sharon Stone and Demi Moore and French star Catherine Denurve who is said to be threaded together with gold. Under local anesthetic, gold filaments are threaded within the skin to create a ‘net-like’ structure under the skin’s surface. The procedure takes 1-2 hours depending on the size of the treated area. The threads are invisible from the outside and do not leave any external scarring. ‘This network provides a mechanical support to the overlaying skin and triggers production of collagen and elastin fibers around the thread,’ Dr Alexandra Chambers says. ‘New blood vessels appear in the area, skin becomes firmer and thicker with a better blood supply. It can be effective for up to ten years.’ Pure gold is an essential component of the treatment. Gold is unreactive and does not oxidize inside the body, so there is little chance of allergic reactions. Initial swelling disappears within a few days and a difference in skin texture can be seen in ten days and will continue to improve with optimum results at three months. The fine gold sutures gradually become fragmented and are partially absorbed by the body, but can still be effective for up to 5-10 years. Gold Thread Skin Rejuvenation is now available in the UK from Dr Alexandra Chambers. Prices from £1,800.
