Overview

For Facial Rejuvenation And Contouring

Facial sagging is part and parcel of the ageing process. Skin loosens with age, and coupled with the effects of gravity, facial sagging shows up as excess fat, hollows, wrinkles and fine lines. This causes disharmony and imbalance to an ideal facial contour.

Traditionally, facelift surgery has been the solution for facial rejuvenation. However, an invasive surgical procedure can be traumatic, and comes with negative experiences like use of general anaesthesia, deep incisions, scarring and long downtime (1-2 weeks).

This has led to a strong demand for minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures like the Face Thread lift. It has gained widespread acceptance as a safe and effective treatment, due to extensive clinical research, improved thread material and more advanced techniques.

The threads used to lift the face are made of PDO (Polydioxanone) and they are 100% biocompatible with the human body. Even after they dissolve, these ultra-fine threads induce the body to create new tissue fibroblasts and collagen, leading to a gradual and visible lifting facial lifting effect.

How It Works

Face Thread Lift enhances and lifts the face by 2 synergistic mechanisms:

1) Mechanical Lift
After numbing cream and solution are used to numb the treatment area, a needle-hole with a cannula is used strategically to place the PDO threads under the skin at specific sites and pre-determined entry points.

This simple process adjusts the skin onto a higher position on the threads, ensuring patients get the lifting and tightening effect at their desired areas on the face.

Different types of threads are used for different areas of the face. Threads with cogs/barbs provide a lifting effect, others are required for repositioning facial fat, while mono threads work by stimulating collagen to thicken loose skin.

2) Biochemical Lift
The PDO nose threads used in this procedure are 100% bio-compatible with the human body. After they dissolve around 12 months post-treatment, they induce the body’s own natural collagen production along the path of the thread fibres, gradually enhancing the facelift results.

Even when the mechanical lifting effect is not present, the biochemical lifting effect will still be ongoing. This prolongs the results of the treatment, and patients can expect a visible face lift that lasts from 6-12 months.

Advanced Face Threadlift Technique For More Dramatic Results

The traditional method to place thread lifts is done from the top-down. However, we use a bottom-up approach that can deliver more dramatic and longer-lasting results.

This is because of the face’s muscle structure which can be categorized into two sections: The dynamic area and the anchoring area.

The dynamic area is where the facial expressions can be seen, and the anchoring area usually has minimal movement. The top-down technique of the Face Thread Lift inserts threads from the anchoring to the dynamic area.

This can sometimes cause threads to loosen as the anchoring part of the threads, when placed in the dynamic area, may be dislodged over time due to frequent muscle movement.

On the other hand, we use the bottom-up technique that locks down the anchoring parts of the threads in the anchoring area of the face, which offers more stable support. This simple but important change in execution of the Face Thread Lift results in stronger anchoring for more dramatic results, and a longer lasting lifting effect.

What You Will Experience During Treatment

This fuss-free procedure is surprisingly comfortable and tolerable. Patients describe a slight stinging sensation, similar to acupuncture. A local anaesthetic will be applied to numb the area to reduce any discomfort.

The entire Face Thread Lift treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete.

What You Will Experience After Treatment

There may be temporary swelling and bruising, which passes after 1-2 days. Mild soreness around the treatment area may be experienced during the recovery period. This is natural and will gradually fade after 1-2 weeks.

No downtime is required, but heavy physical activity and aggressive facial expressions should be avoided for 2 weeks after treatment.

Most patients see immediate improvements after just 1 session. The mechanical lifting effects by the PDO threads can last for around 12 months, after which it dissolves naturally. Follow up Face Thread Lift treatments can be done to prolong results.

Face Threadlift Vs Other Non-Surgical Face Lifting Methods

Other non-surgical face lifting procedures like Fotona4D, Enerjet and HIFU can also deliver safe and effective results. With so many options in the market today, patients are spoilt for choice!

However, it’s important to select the right treatment procedure, in order to achieve lasting results without complications. A consultation with a doctor is highly recommended for patients to accurate diagnose their condition, and be prescribed a customized treatment plan such as Face Thread Lift.
