Face Threadlift Singapore

What is facial threadlifting?
Facial threadlifting is a minimally-invasive method of changing facial shape or reversing facial aging.
How is it performed?
It is performed through tiny, well-hidden puncture holes in the skin using slow-absorbing suture material with small barbs, and usually placed in the plane just above the muscle and fascia. Depending on the indication and individual suitability, threads can be placed at the nose, cheeks and jaw, amongst other areas, to subtly change facial appearance.
Is it painful?
The procedure is performed under controlled, sterile conditions with local anaesthesia in the comfortable clinic procedure room. Pain is minimal and brief, and the procedure has minimal bruising and downtime.

Who is a suitable candidate?


Individuals with early to moderate signs of facial ageing, or patients desiring subtle changes in the shape of the face, are suitable candidates. It is particularly attractive to those who prefer minimal downtime, and are willing to accept a result which lasts one to two years at the most. In most cases, repeated facial threads can be done.

What are the pros and cons of face threadlifts compared to other techniques?

The benefits of facial threads are that they can be done in the clinic, do not involve surgical incisions and involve minimal downtime, with little bruising or swelling. The main drawback of facial threadlifts are that results last 1 to 2 years at the most. In addition, if not placed well, there may be complications such as infection, asymmetry and palpable threads, though these are rare. Other forms of minimally-invasive facelifts such as HIFU can avoid these issues, but may not achieve as significant a result, while surgical procedures offer more accurate and longer lasting results.
