Thread facelift is a non-surgical face lifting treatment and is an alternative option for individuals who do not want or are concerned about face lifting surgery. Fine threads are advanced along pre-marked contours to help lift the skin. These threads have fine filaments that become fixed to the tissue. It then will trigger the production of fresh collagen, which surrounds each filament and creates a subtle yet effective lift. The results are long term and may last for up to 1-2 years after the procedure is complete.
In addition, the effect of lifting and firming caused by the thread lift will be noticeable almost immediately.
Absorbable PDO (Polydioxanone) will be inserted by your doctor into the treatment area for an optimum lifting effect. Nets will be formed between several threads, which promote and stimulate collagen production in your skin, as the tissue slowly absorbed the threads over the next 6 to 8 months. This also reduces signs of aging, while the complexion of your skin will start to improve. After treatment, you should notice the gradual formation of a V- shape while your skin becomes firmer due to the increase in collagen production.
This is a face lifting technique that is popular amongst Malaysians seeking a more oval or V-shaped face which is slimmer and more aesthetically pleasing in appearance. Giving the individual a more youthful look, the slimming of facial features will also leave the skin looking rejuvenated and healthier. Your skin will also become more elastic and smooth after the procedure is complete. Other benefits of a thread lift include:
The thread lift treatment can be used to firm up selected parts of the body, giving you a more youthful appearance overall. The décolletage, breast, buttocks, knees, arms and elbows can all benefit from this treatment which can address growing folds, wrinkles, saggy skin, stretch marks and other aesthetic imperfections. You may also consult your doctor to discuss other options of body contouring using thread lift as thread lift is a very versatile treatment and can be adapted accordingly.
Thread facelift may vary in length and thickness, subject to the treatment area. Shorter threads are generally used to treat fine lines in and around the eye area, while longer threads can fix and lift the neck and jawlines. Thicker threads may also be used as an alternative to other injection treatments and inserted into the muscles of the forehead. Nose threads also can be done under the skin to improve the contour of the nose. Your doctor will advise you on treatments for specific areas in order for you to get the good results.
Collagen and elastin are proteins naturally produced by the body – it binds skin together, keeping it elastic and smooth. As you get older, the production of these two proteins decreases, resulting in skin that is less plump and elastic. This means that skin loses its ability to snap back into place, thus the effects of gravity will be more noticeable to the naked eye since the skin structure is not as strong as it once was. The thread lift also serves as a sagging skin treatment to create a lifting and tightening effect on underlying muscles. Facial wrinkles and sagging skin will be lifted which creates more volumizing and rejuvenates effects.
Creases and ridges develop in the skin as you get older, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. An inevitable part of the aging process, this is because the skin stops producing collagen which makes up the connective tissue that keeps our skin elastic and smooth. Drier and thinner skin is more prone to damage, which can also be contributed by excessive exposure to the sun or dehydration. Folds and fine lines around nose and shin are caused by fat pads in your face slipping due to age. The thread lift will stimulate the new collagen production to smooth out fines and wrinkles around the area that are targeted.
You may experience a prickling sensation which is similar to acupuncture needling but this is not painful, and any redness or bruising that occurs will subside in a few days. Do avoid doing the heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for 2 to 3 weeks.
There are minimal number of cases of side effects on this procedure and it hardly happens. The face has a very complex anatomical structure. Some side effects like infection, the formation of nodules and damage to salivary duct are possible but rarely happened.
Certain cases have noted rare migration or even total extrusion of the sutures, causing an unbalanced facial appearance. With this, or if the thread breaks, simple reinsertion solves the problem. Do visit and consult with the doctors that are expert in PDO thread lift procedure to avoid any serious side effects.
No downtime is necessary and you may return to your regular routine after your appointment.

The desired result can be seen immediately after the PDO thread lift procedure. Your skin will appear lifted as the threads provide support to lift the skin to its new position. The skin may look tighter compared to the final result, but within one week the skin will begin to look much more natural.
The PDO thread will last up to 6 months and dissolve naturally through hydrolysis. While the lifted facial area will remain up to 1 and a half years with proper care, due to the cellular rejuvenation effects. The result will vary from person to person depending on the skin condition and techniques used.
