What is currently a well-loved non-invasive facial treatment around the world was first met with hesitation and doubt after a famous A-list celebrity underwent it. But after additional developments and testimonials, the threadlift has become the procedure to consider for men and women who are looking to bring youth back to their face. Threadlifts in Singapore have become a preferred procedure.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and slows down in collagen production. Some of our facial features begin to sag and fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. Expensive creams are helpful for preventive measures. But to reverse the effects of time, a threadlift may be what you are looking for.
Unlike the traditional face lift, the threadlift is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure. Many have opted for a threadlift than a face lift because of its ease and its more natural effects. While nothing beats a face lift in terms of longevity in results, the threadlift has become the choice of men and women who do not want to go under the knife and cannot afford to take long breaks to recover from surgery.
The goal of the threadlift is to restore the structure of the face by tightening and pulling up the skin. It may be applied to various parts of the face, such as the cheekbones, jowls, brows, and upper neck. The results appear natural, and it will not look as if you had work done on your face.
How does the threadlift work?
Just as the name suggests, invisible threads with small cones or graspers are used to lift the skin. The cones will grab hold of the skin and pull to lift the skin, creating a youthful appearance. Large needles or cannulas are used to place the threads under the subcutaneous fat layer.
The threads are dissolvable, eliminating the risk of infection. It also stimulates collagen production in the skin, producing firmness and a refreshed look. The threadlift was developed as a safer, non-invasive method to address wrinkles and sagging skin.
What does it look like?
After the procedure, you will still look like you, but rejuvenated. The threadlift will help eliminate sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles with a more natural finish. Immediately there will be a lift effect and as weeks pass, lost collagen will be restored. The tissues around the disolvable thread will be tightened and blood supply will increase, leading to healthy, firmer skin.
Are there any precautions?
Clifford Clinic’s doctors will brief its patients before undergoing a threadlift to ensure their safety. Some supplemments may be advised to be avoided a few days before the procedure, as well as alcohol. Immediately after the procedure, it is best to avoid heavy exercises.
How long will it last?
Patients of threadlifts in Singapore see an average of 18 months of a more youthful appearance. Some see results up to two years. The threads dissolve before a year but the results still continue many months after. To continue seeing the youthful results, it is best to repeat the procedure.
Are there any side effects or risks involved?
The risks, especially when compared to other procedures such as fillers and older threadlift procedures, are minimal. Mild swelling and bruising and a bit of soreness is to be expected after the procedure. But these will resolve themselves soon after the procedure is performed.
There is also a much lower risk for infection with the current developments of the threadlift because of its dissolvable threads. Unlike the original version which made use of permanent suture materials, today’s threadlift leaves no space for bacteria to live on and thrive in.
Can it be done with other types of procedures?
Some recommend tailor-fitting the possible procedures for patients and their concerns and desired results. Depending on what and where you want to achieve, the threadlift can be performed in conjunction with other procedures, It is best to seek professional opinion on this matter.
What areas can I get a threadlift on?
This minimally-invasive procedure can be done on many different parts of the face, including one’s facial contours, jawline, cheeks and cheekbones, eyebrows, and neck. The number of sutures also depends on the area being treated. It may require as little as one suture, such as on each eyebrow up to three, to larger areas.
