lip liftLove Your Lips!

Nothing communicates sensuality like the lips – a healthy and happy smile is generally agreed to be the most attractive feature for women and men of all ages. The mouth is incredibly expressive too, with the slightest curl of the lip expressing mood and humour with depth and feeling.

That’s why it can be so saddening to lose the youthful smile in favour of a down-turned mouth, which translates as an unintentional expression of sadness or anger while relaxed.

Unfortunately, the passing of time tends to deplete the natural volume in the lips, making them become thinner. Gravity takes its toll on the structure beneath the skin, so that the smile line can start to take on a downwards direction and make some people look permanently unhappy or cross.

The situation is even worse for smokers, as the collagen and elastin break down faster with the repeated puffing action as well as exposure to free radicals in inhaled air and deprivation of oxygen.

Lip Thread Lift

Now Dr Barbara Kubicka at Clinicbe has revealed a new option for rejuvenating the mouth and lip area.

A lip thread lift addresses the physical shape of the mouth by using special threads to gently yet effectively lift the smile line into a more rejuvenated position.

The procedure uses PDO threads, which are the very latest non-surgical technology. They feature no cones and are incredibly fine so can be used in the most delicate procedures such as lifting and sculpting the lips.

The result is twofold:

  1. addresses the shape and direction of the mouth by gently lifting the edges of the mouth for a more pleasing appearance and no more down-turned smile
  2. PDO threads are made from Polydioxanone, which is a substance that naturally stimulates the production of collagen in the mid layer of the skin creating a firmer and more youthful texture

As an alternative to the PDO threads, the Silhouette Soft Lip Lift is also available at Clinicbe. This is another innovation which allows the doctor to address the distance between the tip of the nose to upper lip for a more youthful appearance. This is tends to be either a hereditary feature or result of aging and previously could only be treated surgically with an invasive buffalo lift. Silhouette Soft, by comparison, is far less invasive, requires faster recovery, no general anaesthetic or overnight stay and is also considerably cheaper.


Dr Kubicka offers a range of cutting edge skin treatments for a range of conditions, but her success is based on her unique approach to integrating skin and health care so that the patient receives treatment and advice for the best results ‘inside and out’.

That’s why private consultations include individual advice on nutrition and lifestyle to help tackle skincare issues from within and compliment professional treatments.

Popular aesthetic treatments include wrinkle-relaxing injections and facial fillers as well as mesotherapy and dermaroller.

The clinic also has the latest pain-free mesotherapy injection system, PRP and new PDO threads.
