Face Thread Lift – Face Lift without Surgery
What happens to our face when we age?
Our face starts to lose volume, collagen and fat. Gravity becomes our worst enemy. This results in face sagging and wrinkling making us look tired and old.
Face thread lift is an excellent treatment to improve this.
Face thread lift is a very sought after non-surgical face lifting procedure in Korea. It is a safe and relatively comfortable procedure with minimal downtime. Most importantly, it is an effective face lifting treatment without undergoing the knife.
What is Thread Lift?
Face Thread Lift treatment uses ultra thin threads called poly-L-lactic acid and caprolactone (p(LA-CL)) threads and/or polydioxanone (PDO) threads. When placed appropriately into the treatment areas such as the cheeks, jawline and neck, these threads can give an immediate lifting effect. They then start to stimulate new fibroblast and collagen production from within the skin. The end result is a tighter and more lifted skin, effectively giving you a V shape face. Thread lift also help reduces the appearances of the wrinkles, creases and folds.
Nose thread lift, on the other hand, is also a popular treatment for those wishing to have a more lifted and more defined nose without undergoing dreadful surgery.
What are the areas that can be treated with Thread lift?
With correct skills and techniques, threads can used to lift areas such as:
- Nasolabial areas
- Jowls and marionette lines
Treatment of more than one areas of the face is usually required to achieve a desired face lifting result.
Is thread lift painful?
Thread lift is a relatively comfortable procedure with the help of numbing cream and local anaesthesia injections. Most patients only experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.
How soon can I see the results?
Most patients can see an instant face lifting result immediately after treatment. The results generally improve over the next 2-4 weeks. Results from thread lifting are very natural in comparison to surgical face lift.
Due to collagen and fibroblast production over time, results from face thread lift tend to improve over time.
How long do they last?
This varies from person to person. Generally, thread lift can last for approximately 1 to 1.5 year. Repeated treatment can further improve the outcome.
After the face thread lift treatment, you will feel a tight sensation over the treated areas. Some discomfort, redness, needle marks, mild skin dimpling and minimal bruising are expected after the treatment. However these usually resolve within 1-2 weeks.
Am I suitable for thread lift?
Thread lift is suitable for women and men who wish to improve mild to moderate face sagging but are not ready to go under the knife. It produces immediate face lifting effect that gets better over time, without the potential complications from a major surgery.
Can I combine thread lift with other treatment?
Thread lifts can be combined with other anti-ageing treatments such as:
- Dermal fillers
- Rejuran Healer Treatment
- RF Tightening & Lifting Treatment
