Threadlift in Singapore: All You Need To Know

Threadlift in Singapore is a cosmetic procedure that lifts and sculpts the face, neck, and body. 

As opposed to facelifts which are an invasive procedure, a threadlift is a non-surgical procedure that can help fight against the natural ageing process without going under the knife. They are most commonly preferred over traditional facelifts because of the following advantages:

  • Minimally invasive
  • No downtime
  • 100% absorbable by bodies
  • Naturally lifts and tightens
  • Restores facial volume loss
  • Stimulate collagen growth

What are the different types of threads used for threadlift procedures?

Threadlifts in Singapore uses Polydioxanone (PDO) threads and come in three different types, usually decided by an aesthetic doctor after careful assessments. Each PDO thread is differently shaped and serves varied purposes.

Smooth ThreadsMono threads have a smooth surface and are typically implanted in a mesh-like manner that can stimulate collagen production. This helps rejuvenate the skin by tightening the skin tissue. A downside for mono threads is that their smooth surface hinders them from lifting the skin.

Barb ThreadsTornado threads are twisted and look like a double mono thread when intertwined together. When embedded in the sunken areas, a volumizing and facelifting effect takes place while collagen production is stimulated.

Twist ThreadsCog threads have barbs or jagged surfaces that hook onto the embedded area of the skin tissues when punctured. As it lifts the sagging skin tissues, collagen production is stimulated - making it especially effective for lifting and slimming the jawline.

What to expect from a threadlift in Singapore

Before a threadlift procedure

A consultation with an aesthetic doctor will help you determine the best course of action to take to achieve your desired appearance. During the first consultation, make sure to discuss your expectations and goals from getting a threadlift. Ensure you are well-informed of all the benefits and limitations of the treatment and clarify all medical details so you know what to expect.

 

Do

Don’t

Tell your doctor of all medications you are on

Consume caffeine

Avoid food that may trigger inflammation

Smoke for at least one week before the procedure

Relax and avoid stress before the procedure

Take blood-thinning medication for at least one week before the procedure

During the treatment

Treated areas will be slightly raised and tightened to reduce the deep folds and sagging. Threadlift treatments in Singapore typically take less than an hour and patients will feel minimal pain, after local anaesthesia has been administered.

After a threadlift procedure

Some pain and mild swelling will occur in the treated areas in the first week but patients can go back to their daily activities after 1 to 2 days. Results are visible about a few weeks post-treatment as collagen growth stimulation will require a few days to fully develop.

Results from a threadlift can last up to 1 to 3 years depending on your skin condition, age, smoking and drinking habits, and how you care for your skin.

Our 3-Step Nose ThreadLift structurally divides the nose profile into 3 connected areas and lifts the nose bridge, raises the nose ridge, and lifts the nasal tip naturally.

Body

Body threadlift lifts excess skin on the body such as in the arms, legs, and tummy area. This treatment is especially suitable for individuals who have minimal excess fat, and have mild to moderate skin laxity on the concerned areas. Illumia Medical’s Body ThreadLift is performed by puncturing tiny, well-hidden holes in the skin using slow-absorbing sutures.

Can a threadlift be done together with fillers?

Yes. Threadlifts and fillers are two treatments that complement each other well.

For maximum and longer-lasting results, dermal fillers can be proceeded with after the skin has healed from a previous threadlift treatment.
