Anyone obsessed with having flawless tight skin probably knows a thing or two about face thread lifts.


This non-invasive treatment has made its way across Singapore, offering a solution to firm the skin and visibly lift the laugh lines, cheeks, jawline, double-chin areas and even the nose bridge without the pain or downtime involved in a surgery.


How Face Thread Lifts in Singapore Work


Non-surgical thread lifts work by inserting a medical-grade suture called PDO/PCL threads under the skin to give a lifted and tighter looking complexion. Aside from the visible lift, the threads also help boost collagen production, thus firming the skin and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The threads are completely biocompatible and bio-absorbable—they dissolve in about 6-12 months, but the results last anywhere from 1-2 years.


Thanks to the advances in aesthetic medicine, thread lifting has become a safe and effective non-invasive option for lifting the skin. Today, It has gained global attention with celebrities and supermodels swearing by its anti-ageing effects, and is , often used in conjunction with other advanced treatments like HIFU toning and dermal fillers, both of which restores lost volume in the face caused by ageing, and prolongs the effects of thread lift.


The Benefits of Face Thread Lifts


Immediate Lift

With a thread lift, you get instantly lifted and tighter-looking skin. It’s because the procedure works by affixing the threads to certain points of the face and then pulling them upwards to immediately lift the skin.


No Downtime

With surgical facelifts, the procedure is painful and the recovery period is at least a month. But, this just isn’t the case with thread lifts. Regarded as a lunchtime procedure, you can undergo facelift during your lunch break and be back shortly after an hour!


Long-Term Results

The bio absorbable threads are completely dissolvable, but the results can last for a year or more. This is because the threads also work to boost collagen production, thus giving you a plumper and more youthful complexion.


Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles

By boosting collagen production, the threads can help tighten the skin, thus smoothening out  lines and wrinkles around the areas where they are placed and reducing any facial sagging.


Face Thread Lift Aftercare


A thread lift is a safe and effective treatment that takes less than an hour to complete. Many of our patients find it comfortable as we apply a numbing cream to reduce any pain during the procedure.


While it’s the case, you may experience the following with a face thread lift:





-minimal pain on the treated area


There’s also a minimal risk of other complications such as dimpling of the skin, but it is minor and should fade on its own.


For the bruising and swelling, your aesthetic doctor may recommend you to apply a cold compress for the first two days after the treatment. You may also want to sleep with your head slightly elevated to help reduce swelling.


Likewise, you should also minimise movement in the treated area—that includes smiling, sneezing, or coughing. If you must sneeze, try to hold your face to support the threads. If possible, try avoiding smoking and drinking alcohol as well. For other complications, you should immediately get in touch with your doctor.


In the hands of a skilled and professionally accredited aesthetic doctor plus some aftercare measures, the procedure should be safe, successful, and long-lasting.
