Face and Cheek Threadlift Singapore - Non surgical facelift
What is Face and Cheek Threadlifting?
It is a popular anti-aging, non-surgical, minimally invasive face lifting treatment that lifts sagging skin and cheeks to turn back the clock and restore a youthful look.
In the market, the two most common type of threads are PDO and PCL threads. PDO threads last for up to 12 months whilst PCL threads can last up to 24 months.
Threads are made from the same material as surgical sutures (stitches) and are naturally broken down safely over time.
These threads usually have small barbs running along their length which resemble tiny “hooks”. These barbs are responsible for achieving the instant lifting effect.
The special material that the threads are made of also stimulate collagen production which further boosts the anti-aging effects and help maintain skin lifting and tightening - even after the threads have dissolved.
How is the procedure done?
The procedure is straightforward and fuss free, requiring between 30 to 45 minutes for completion.
Detailed planning and discussion will be carried out with Dr Edwin whereby the optimal placement of threads will be marked out to achieve your desired results.
At the entry point of the threads, a small numbing injection will be given to minimize discomfort.
After insertion of the threads, Dr Edwin will gently massage the face to enhance the lift and ensure that results are ideal.

How long do results last?
Depending on the type of thread used, results can last for up to 2 years.
Furthermore, the collagen stimulating effects of the threads help prolong the longevity of results, stimulating skin rejuvenation and improving fine lines and wrinkles.
Is there downtime?
Face threadlifting is a safe and effective procedure with minimal risks.
Side effects such as soreness, swelling or bruising are usually mild and resolves within a week.
Regular application of the intensive recovery cream will speed up the recovery process and reduce downtime.
What else can be done for sagging skin?
Dr Edwin recommends that HIFU be combined with face threadlifting to boost collagen levels in the skin and naturally enhance the lifting effect of threads.
In areas of volume loss, fillers can be used to restore sunken cheeks or temples for a youthful, natural look.
