Thread lifting is a minimally invasive treatment to smooth wrinkles, lift sagging skin and/or restore volume. It is considered a comparatively gentle lifting. Provided that the indication fits and the threads are inserted into the skin by a qualified doctor. Specially trained non-medical practitioners are also allowed to carry out Threadlift Singapore. Neither a scalpel nor general anesthesia is necessary.
How the thread lift works
With this lifting method, the practitioner uses a special needle under local anesthesia to insert self-dissolving threads into the subcutaneous fatty tissue, which depending on the skin area to be treated are smooth, twisted or have small barbs.
Threads with barbs are ideal for tightening, smooth threads are used to add volume. The insertion of the threads takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on the region and the desired result. They remain in the skin and are intended to stimulate the connective tissue cells to produce more collagen. Depending on the treatment method and skin area, the tightening effect is immediately visible and is intensified by the build-up of collagen in the weeks that follow.
The thread lift smooths the face or the treated part of the body naturally and gently lifts and stabilizes slack tissue. As a result, the game should look younger. The non-surgical facelift is particularly suitable for the face, and neck. Doctors are now also using the volume building and lifting effect for the body.
This removes the self-dissolving sutures by itself after a few months. The tightening result of the thread lift lasts on average one to two years due to the formation of collagen. Exactly how long varies from person to person. If the effect wears off, the practitioner can usually repeat the lifting without surgery. A thread lift can also be combined with fillers.
