What are the areas where thread lift can be done?

Here are the areas that can be treated by Thread Lift.

Type of Threads

PDO (Polydioxanone), PLLA (Polylactic acid) and PCL (Polycaprolactone) are the most common types of threads in Singapore. All threads are used to tighten volumes and lift the skin without surgery.

PDO Threads

PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread is suitable for those who want to enhance their appearance without having to use surgery. The patient must also be in good general health and have reasonable expectations of the outcome of treatment. PDO is for a comprehensive approach to aging that helps in skin tightening in saggy skin by inducing collagen production.

Duration of PDO lasts around 6 to 12 months and collagen production in the treated skin continues for up to 12 months. Major benefits of PDO includes.

  • Reduces fine lines, wrinkles and size of pores.
  • Improves elasticity and tightens the skin effectively.
  • Face shaping, contouring and rejuvenation.

PLLA Threads

PLLA threads are often used as an alternative to Botox and fillers. They act as a volumizer and are able to stimulate the production of collagen in our skin. 

Their characteristic is more powerful collagen stimulators than PDO threads. Duration of PLLA threads last around 1-2 years after the thread lifting treatment.

Major benefits of PLLA Thread Lift includes:

  • Lifts & tighten saggy or flabby skin.
  • Improves skin texture.
  • Brighten the skin complexion.
  • Defined facial contours such as cheekbones and jawlines.
  • Can sculpt more pleasing features such as under-eye, brow lines, laugh or sad lines.
  • Last longer than PDO threads.
  • Procedure can be repeated to maintain and adjust to ongoing facial shaping.

PCL Threads

Polycaprolactone (PCL) threads generate collagen for a longer period than PLLA and PDO threads. The duration of PCL treads last more than 2 years in the body and break down and slowly absorb into the skin. PCL is more powerful than PDO or PLLA threads due to its lifespan. 

Major benefits of PLLA Thread Lift includes:

  • Jawline tightening.
  • Reshaping nose/ nose lift.
  • Mid-face tissue replacement.
  • Collagen production can continue for a further year after the threads have completely dissolved in the skin.
  • More potent at stimulating collagen production.
  • Jowls, jawlines, crow’s feet, under eye, cheeks, laugh/sad lines can be treated by PCL thread lifting treatment.
