About Thread Lift

Thread Lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin lifting and rejuvenation aesthetic procedure using 100% bio-degradable threads to reposition and rejuvenate skin tissues beneath the skin. These threads are inserted into the subcutaneous fat layer beneath the skin from target entry spots on the face and pulled together gently resulting in an instant lifting effect. The threads also restore facial volume and stimulate collagen production in the skin tissues resulting in growth of new collagen over time. Threads can also be used to augment and enhance facial features especially the nose. There is no need to remove the threads as they will fully dissolve over a period of time.

  • Minimally invasive and safe
  • 100% dissolvable
  • Tighten and lift sagging skin
  • Restore facial volume
  • Enhance and augment nose
  • Stimulate Collagen growth

Comparison of Different Thread Materials

There are three types of thread materials used in threadlift by doctors around the world. PDO (Polydioxanone), PLLA (Poly-L-Lactic Acid) and PCL (polycaprolactone). PDO is first used for thread lift while PCL is the latest. Other than used for lifting, threads have been found in numerous studies to stimulate natural collagen growth for up to 12 months after the threads dissolve, improving skin elasticity.

Perhaps the important question here is which material last the longest since the lifting effect subside after the threads fully dissolve through biodegradation. As the chemical bonds and structure in PCL are stronger and more complex, it lasts the longest among the 3 different materials. For customers who wish to see their enhanced appearance last longer, PCL could be the preferred thread material, and are usually priced 20% – 40% more than PDO threads.

Types of Threads

Threads are designed differently to serve different purposes. It is important that you find out which type of thread your doctor is using. There are fundamentally 3 types of threads – they are Mono (smooth), Tornado (twist) and Cog (barb) 

normal thread 1
Mono threads

Mono threads are normal threads with smooth surface. They are usually implanted in a mesh-like manner to stimulate collagen production for skin rejuvenation helping to tighten and firm skin tissue. Since they have smooth surface, they are not designed to have lifting power.

tornado thread 1
Tornado threads

Tornado threads have a twist shape and could look like double mono threads intertwined together. They have a volumising effect when embedded in the sunken areas of the skin and also stimulate collagen production.

cogged thread 1
Cog threads

Cog threads or Cannula threads have a barb or jagged surface designed to hook onto the embedded area of the skin tissues. They act as a support structure to lift sagging skin tissues. They also stimulate collagen production around both the threads and their barbs, making it the ideal type of thread for face lifting and tightening.

Thread Type Results Cost
Mono Skin Rejuvenation & tightening Low
Tornado / Twist Volumizing and tightening. Skin rejuvenation. Slightly higher than Mono
Cog / Cannula Best for lifting and tightening. Skin rejuvenation. 6 - 7 times of Mono
Custom PCL Thread Lift Price Table
PCL Thread Type Price
Mono $22 / Thread
Tornado $22 / Thread
Hiko Nose $70 / Thread
Cog $150 / Thread
