Thread lift is an aesthetic beauty technique less intrusive than a surgical facelift. Thread lifts promise to improve the tightness of your skin by injecting clinical-grade thread-like material inside your face. The thread is then pulled in an upwards motion to tighten your skin. It is also a barbed suture lift to raise and contour your face or breasts. Thread lifts utilise temporary clinical thread that "stitch up" your skin and brings it taut. Thread lifts have been used since the 1990s, but advances in thread lift material have become popular in recent years. Different thread lifts have been created throughout the years to address various face skin concerns.


What Are the Types of Thread Lifts?

PCL Thread Type

Polycaprolactone is a revolutionary thread that lifts and regenerates facial skin without the hassle of surgery. These threads function as a filler as it fills wrinkles while boosting the production of collagen. The response towards this treatment starts 4-5 weeks after the threads are introduced and might endure for 2-4 years.

PLLA Thread Type

PLLA Thread Type has the capacity to retain water, as it ensures the tissues' moisture content increases and restores the firmness of the skin. The body responds to the thread's insertion by building connective tissue around it, increasing tightening. When PLLA threads are destroyed, the connective tissues surrounding them also begin to disintegrate. PLLA threads are durable for almost 18 months.

Thread Type PDO

Polydioxanone is a contemporary structural substance used to make PDO threads from biodegradable polyester thread. They are most suited for skin rejuvenation, but other modern thread lifts are better for restoring droopy skin. Surgeons typically use this material to sew delicate tissues together. This material is also used during surgical stitching. This is not poisonous and does not induce allergic responses. Polydioxanone possesses a great tensile property. It promotes the production of fibrous connective tissue during diffusion. PDO threads can endure up to 8 months on average. Let's examine what distinguishes a PDO thread lift from many other thread lifts and what to anticipate during the operation.



The Basics of PDO Thread Lift

PDO threads are the oldest of the three other thread lift treatments since it has been utilised in operations since the 1980s. They are manufactured from colourless polyester, which dissolves in your body after roughly six months. The sutures that are present under your skin stimulate fibroblasts, which are cells in your body that generate collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support and suppleness to your skin. One of the primary reasons for premature aging is collagen loss. PDO threads are even further classified into three types:

PDO Thread Lift mono threads

Sutures that are smooth and stimulate collagen formation to help revitalise your skin.

PDO Thread Lift cog threads

To offer support and raise areas of your face, these threads include barbs that latch onto your skin like miniature fishhooks.

PDO Thread Lift screw threads

These are made of one or two entwined threads and are used to restore volume to sagging areas of your skin. The popularity of PDO Thread Lift is growing as there has been a 13% increase in the past year.


What Does PDO Thread Lift Treat?

PDO thread lift alleviates the ligaments and muscles as it promotes blood flow in the treated region of the skin. This method aids in maintaining the firmness of the skin as this initiates the development of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. It also encourages adipose tissue to shrink, resulting in tighter skin and a smaller face. PDO thread lift is highly flexible and may be utilised in a variety of applications, including:

  • Eyebrows

  • Cheeks

  • Around the lips and neck

They can also cure skin problems like:

  • eye bags

  • Sagging cheek skin

  • Smile lines

  • Crows' feet

  • Forehead creases



Possible Aftereffects of PDO Thread Lift

Surgical facelifts have a significantly number of intense complications compared to PDO thread lifts. There is lesser threat of scarring, serious bruising, or bleeding when the PDO thread lift is performed by a qualified physician. 15% to 20% of PDO thread lift surgeries may have minor issues, though these complications are often quickly rectified.

  • visible sutures (particularly in those with thin skin)

  • discomfort

  • mild bruising

  • infection

  • thread breaking

  • blood build-up (hematoma)

  • swelling

  • dimpling (orange peel-like skin texture)

  • loss of hair

  • injury to salivary glands

What Is a Better Option Than PDO Thread Lift?

What if needles and sutures are not your first choice or any choice? With advanced research studies and technological developments in the cosmetic beauty industry, we at Perfect Laser Clinics play host to one of the most recommended non-surgical skin tightening treatments, the Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face Lift. The Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face Lift employs micro-focused ultrasound (MFU) to induce new collagen creation 4.5 mm deep in the skin's SMAS layer. It can selectively heat specific tissues, resulting in the face's natural plumping and uplifting effect. This treatment will be comfortable and pleasurable for those worried about pins and needles as it is non-invasive and painless!



How Does Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face Lift Work?

Prior to treatment, our doctor at Perfect Laser Clinics will guide you through the procedure and discuss the risks. You can address any concerns and questions regarding this treatment with our beauty consultant. One week before the treatment, you must avoid using aggravating cosmetic products containing AHA/BHA or retinol to prevent skin from thinning. Ensure you avoid excessive sunlight exposure before therapy, as it could create skin irritations during treatment. Before undergoing the Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face Lift, our beauty consultant will perform a skin evaluation to acquire a better knowledge of your skin's moisture level, pore diameter, the extent of sagging, and other factors in order to select the targeted regions to be treated. Then, our beauty consultant will then proceed to cleanse your face, before doing a patch test. Meanwhile, our consultant will monitor your skin and its response to MFU wavelengths. This is to establish an equilibrium between comfort and maximum impact. Our therapist can instantly modify the wavelengths emitted based on the skin's state and temperature using ultrasound imaging. After the treatment, we will monitor the results of the following therapy to verify that all your needs and goals are met.


What Are the Benefits of Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face Lift?

Similar results to a traditional facelift

A typical medical facelift includes rearranging the skin's supporting tissues and muscles. It is then stitched back over the face, creating incisions and possibly causing post-surgical risks that can be catastrophically disastrous. With the help of modern technology, there is no need to opt for a surgical facelift. To re-establish firmness and suppleness in the face, stimulate collagen formation using Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face Lift.

Then, they are pulled to give your face a lifted effect.

Who is suitable for Ultherapy?

Ultherapy suits those with saggy skin, double chin, or wrinkles.

How many sessions of Ultherapy are required to see the optimum result?

After treatment, collagen level will increase, with its benefits lasting up to a year.

How long does the Ultherapy treatment take?

One session of Ultherapy takes about 2 hours.

Are there any external medications used during Ultherapy?

No, the Ultherapy treatment does not use any shots, medicines, anaesthesia, or surgery; therefore causes, no harm is caused to the skin during and after the treatment.
