What is Threadlift and How Does It Work?

As we get old, the skin loosens and loses volume in the soft tissues, leading to apparent drooping, deepening nasolabial creases, and overall dull skin. A thread lift is a minimally invasive, non-surgical facial rejuvenation technique that lifts drooping skin and creases. In contrast to surgical facelifts, there are no scars, incisions, or downtime.

Since the threads boost the skin’s collagen development, the benefits are nearly instantaneous and would keep improving even once your thread lift is done. Facial threads composed of the same substance as surgical sutures are put into the face’s soft tissues during the process.

What Exactly Is Thread Lift?

A thread lift in Singapore is a minimally invasive, non-surgical facial lift procedure that employs specific suture threads to “lift up” drooping skin on your neck and face or to improve the tip or bridge of your nose. The treatment takes less time compared to a typical neck lift, face lift, or rhinoplasty, and there’s almost no downtime or recovery period. The final result is a more rejuvenated, natural, relaxed, and young look.

Who Are Good Candidates For This Procedure

People who have acquired drooping and sagging face tissues and want to try a minimally invasive, non-surgical approach. Facial thread lifts may also be performed on younger people who want a more defined jawline, a sharper V-shaped face, and their double chins removed.

What Composition Are The Threads?

Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA), Polycaprolactone, and Polydioxanone (PDO) loaded with Vitamin C are the three primary thread options (PCL). They’re a harmless substance that disintegrates naturally and is absorbed into your body. As the threads are implanted, they stimulate collagen formation in the skin, which improves the thread lift’s benefits long after the body absorbed the threads.

Polydioxanone (PDO):

The threads usually disintegrate after a year and last between 6-12 months.

PLLA (Poly-L-Lactic Acid, a filler comparable to Sculptra)

The threads are significantly more effective compared to PDO in stimulating collagen formation and often last 1.5-2 years. When the threads disintegrate, the substance degrades into glucose, lactate, water, and carbon dioxide. Because it’s resorbable, it operates on the deeper skin layers in order to promote collagen formation. It’s among the most often utilized materials due to its advantages.

PCL (Vitamin C-infused Polycaprolactone)

These treads decompose slowly, making them an excellent material for delivering Vitamin C to nearby tissues and lasting between 2-3 years. Because PCL’s chemical structure is more complicated compared to the others, it takes longer for the human systems to breakdown it. When the substance is dissolved using a hydrolysis process, it degrades into water and carbon dioxide. Because Vitamin C has been shown to reduce pigment production, these threads are particularly effective at lightening underlying pigments and providing anti-aging benefits.

What Is The Difference Between The Facial Threadlift And Other Lifting Procedures?

Other non-surgical lifting procedures, like Thermage and HIFU, may successfully raise drooping skin. However, since every patient is unique, and like other medical procedures, the outcomes might differ based on your condition and its severity.

How Is The Procedure Done

The dissolvable threads are put into your skin to have your tissue realigned and stimulate progressive collagen formation, which aids in the restoration of shapeliness to the neck and face for a younger appearance. Our facial thread lift procedures are safe for all types of skin and provide natural-looking results by tightening and lifting the skin. Depending on the desired lift, the threads would be carefully put in the region to accomplish the desired outcomes.

What To Expect As Results

In addition to providing an instant lift to drooping tissues, stimulated collagen provides natural and long-lasting effects, extending the lifting impact after the procedure. It reduces fine wrinkles and promotes skin flexibility.

How Long Will It Last?

Facial threadlifts in Singapore usually last between 1 to 2 years. Our medical doctors would encourage patients to come for a follow-up facial thread lift procedure for the best results.
