A surgical facelift is no longer the only option to lift, sculpt, and contour your face. Advances in medical technology have resulted in threadlifts: a non-surgical, facelift alternative that uses biodegradable threads to gently lift and rejuvenate your skin.

Heard about threadlifts but still have many questions left unanswered? LS Aesthetic Clinic breaks it down for you: what threadlifts are, the science behind threadlifts, and what it can do to rejuvenate your skin.

What are threadlifts?
A dissolvable threadlift is a non-surgical method of facial lifting, via the safe insertion of ultra-fine polydioxanone (PDO) threads under the skin. This helps to lift skin and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a more sculpted face and rejuvenated skin.

PDO threads are commonly used in surgeries and have a proven track record of safety and reliability. They are also fully biodegradable, and only the new collagen naturally produced by your body remains.


How can threadlifts rejuvenate my skin?
The benefits of threadlifts are multifold!

What areas can be treated by threadlifts?
Threadlifts can be used to obtain your desired V-shaped face, reduce double chins, or lift sagging skin on the face and neck.


When do I see results? How long do results last?
While some patients report seeing an immediate lifting effect, optimum results for skin lifting and tightening generally take place in about 1-2 months, following the body's natural regeneration of new collagen. You can expect results to last up to a year.

What can I expect during the procedure?
Prior to the treatment, an experienced therapist will apply a local anaesthetic to the treatment area. Once the anaesthetic has set, Dr. Kok will begin the procedure by outlining the placement of the dissolvable threads in the treatment area, before advancing the threads across previously marked contours.

Most patients do not feel any pain due to the application of the local anaesthetic. You will most likely experience a slight pulling effect during the procedure. After the procedure, you might experience slight swelling and redness, but this should subside within a few days.

What is the science behind threadlifts?
The PDO threads create a firm hold on the underlying tissues as they are gently positioned into place by Dr.Kok, resulting in the lifting and tightening of sagging skin. Once the threads are in place, your body naturally responds by regenerating new collagen bundles that surround each thread filament to maintain the lifting effect.
