Dermal Thread Lift


A milestone or breakthrough in the scenario of anti-aging treatment is the use of dioxanone floating threads which help to tighten the skin, getting rid of sagging. The results are almost immediately visible as tightness of the skin and the anti-ageing effect is seen over a few weeks when the body’s collagen gets deposited over these threads increasing the firmness and tightness.

Dermal Thread Lift is a very minor procedure that can be even done as a lunchtime procedure after the application of topical anesthetic cream.

Thus the loss of firmness and definition which had been troubling you can be corrected wonderfully with the non-surgical technique, giving a younger, firmer face.

Different PDO Threads in Thread Lifting

The latest trend for thread lifting is the usage of Polydioxanone (PDO) threads which is absorbed by the skin after several months. At the same time, this process stimulates and induces collagen production over the course of about 8 months, with the effects lasting typically 2 years.

Here we like to introduce to you the three types of PDO Threads that is often used in combination in Korean Thread Lifting therapy.

Mono Threads

Mono threads are smooth threads without barbs. Many of these thread type are placed into the face in a mesh-like fashion for skin tightening effect. Skin tightening usually improves after collagen starts forming around the threads. The treatment areas are often neck lines, neck sagginess, forehead and undereyes. Between 10 -20 mono threads are usually inserted for each treatment area. In order to sustain a lift, the threads are attached to an “anchoring point” of the scalp or face. Mono threads tighten the skin but without significant lifting; therefore they have to be used with cog threads for an overall improvement in face tightening and rejuvenation.

Screw threads

Screw threads can come in the form of one or two threads intertwined together around the inserting needle. Screw thread has a great effect on giving volume effect on sunken area of the skin. “Multi Screw” – when intertwining two threads are used – has stronger effect over screw thread. Screw threads are usually used for general face-lifting. A tip our trainer from the Hands-On Korean Thread Lift Workshop, you can “create” your screw threads by inserting a mono thread in a twisting.

Cog threads

Cog threads are essentially mono threads with barbs to hook to the underside of the skin. The barbs form a support structure that lifts the sagging tissue. Unlike mono threads, cog threads do not need anchoring points. Collagen formation can also occur around the threads and their barbs. Cog threads are most effective for jawline lifting, slimming and breast lifting.
