Facial Sculpting / Contouring by Non-Surgical Thread Lift
WHY CHOOSE FACIAL SCULPTING/CONTOURING
Facial sculpting is a treatment method that is popular, especially among Asians who want a more oval- or V-shape face which is more aesthetic and slimmer in appearance. It gives the individual a look that is more youthful, while the slimming of facial features also leaves skin looking healthier and rejuvenated. In addition, skin becomes smoother and more elastic once the treatment is complete.
HOW IT WORKS
Your doctor will insert PDO (Polydiozanone) threads that are absorbable into the outlined treatment area for an optimum lifting effect. Nets will form between several threads, which helps to stimulate collagen production in the skin, while the tissue gradually absorbs these threads over the following 6-8 months. It also reduces aging signs, while helping to improve the complexion of your skin significantly. Following treatment, a gradual formation of a V-shape should become noticeable, while your skin firms up due to the greater amount of collagen produced.
WHY THREAD LIFT?
The procedure is non-surgical, making thread lift a viable alternative for people who prefer not to undergo surgery. Results are fairly long term as they last for up to 1-2 years after completion of the treatment. As a bonus, the lifting and firming effect brought about by thread lift will also be noticeable almost instantly. Downtime is not necessary and you can return to your daily routine after your session is over.
DURING THE PROCEDURE
An anaesthetic cream will be applied in the outlined area prior to thread lift – this will help to numb your skin and minimises pain or discomfort. Taking about 30-40 minutes to complete depending on the area, threads are inserted into the treatment area. A small, prickly sensation similar to that of acupuncture needling will be experienced but it is not painful.
The threads used will vary in thickness and length, but depends on the treatment area. Fine lines around the eye area tend to be treated using shorter threads, while longer threads are reserved for the neck and jawlines. The thicker threads can also be used instead of Botox, and inserted into the forehead muscles. Do follow your doctor’s advice about treatments for specific areas for the best results.
