Thread Lift

Sagging of the face can cause you to look not just more aged, but also unduly  sad and tired. 

Sagging due to volume loss and ligament laxity is to be approached by a combination of treatment including Dermal Fillers, HIFU and Threads

Q. What is a thread lift?

Thread Lift is  a non surgical way to lift and tighten the loose facial tissues. 

Q. What are these threads?

Threads can be made of PDO,PCA or PLA. The most popular ones are PDO  threads. PDO stands for Polydioxanone which is a biodegradable, safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. The body absorbs PDO threads in 6-8 months after insertion, but results can last for up to one year as PDO can help stimulate collagen production and neovascularization in the skin.  There are three main types of PDO threads -mono, cog and screw. Mon threads are mooth, without barbs,They mainly tighten the skin and provide a small amount of lift. Cog threads have barbs which hook onto the skin to provide support and lift the sagging skin. Screw threads have one or two intertwined threads around the needle and provide good volume restoration to sunken areas of the skin.  At TWACHA, one of our favourite threads is the US FDA  approved  MINT™ range comprising  MINT™ Easy,  MINT™ Fine and  MINT™ double screw. 

Q. How does it work?

Once the threads are placed into the skin, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look

Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, MINT threads can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.

Q. What should I expect during a session of thread lift?

After determining the exact indication, the specific  type of thread is chosen. Numbing cream is applied on the area to be treated. The thread is inserted into the skin through a very tiny aperture. That’s it! You will not be able to see the thread externally. You may be able to feel it upon pressure. Analgesics are prescribed if needed. 

Q. How long does it take?

The procedure takes an average of one hour but can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. 

Q. How soon can I see the results?

MINT™ PDO results are immediate. You do not have to wait weeks and months to see your results. Additionally, results get more refined with time.

Q. What results can I expect?

 Although individual results may vary, common results achieved with MINT™ PDO include:

 Heart shaped, higher cheekbone contour

             Defined jaw line

             Softer smile lines

            Softer eyebrows

            Smoother neck lines

Q. Can I combine thread lift treatments with other treatments?

Thread Lift is a great procedure in conjunction with other treatments such as lasers, PRP, injectables, BOTOX®, and fillers. The threads can be used to target sagging skin and fillers can be utilized for deep lines to create an overall youthful appearance to the face.
