Thread lifting allows delicate control of thread length, shape, and lifting direction. Unlike other procedures, immediate return to everyday activity is possible since bruising or swelling are minimized. In addition, this thread lifting has longer lasting effect.

Thread Lifting

It is recommended for those who

  1. Wish to have wrinkle and elasticity improvement
  2. Wish to have brightening effect
  3. Wish to have body contour effect

Principal of Thread Lifting

Principal of Thread Lifting

When thread is inserted to the skin, the tissues get damaged.
In the process of recovery of the damaged tissues, more cells are regenerated.
This process helps to improve elasticity of the skin allowing a long lasting effect with thread’s bearing power.
The rigid physical strength of the thread allows for the skin to retain its tension for a longer duration.

Prominent lifting effects can be shown on all types of skin without discrimination against age, and satisfactory results can be achieved for anyone from young adults to middle aged patients.

Bi-directional cog thread will firmly pull the wrinkles and saggy skins for V-line effect. Around these bi-directional cogs, skin tissues will gather to create new volumes inside the skin.

Previous lifting required incision on both sides for the balance but this thread lifting only requires one side insertion which minimizes scar and makes it possible for washing face and wearing make-up right after the treatment.
