The thread lift procedure is a great way to regain your beautiful facial contour without surgery. It is a minimally invasive face lifting procedure that works by inserting a very fine absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) sutures in order to lift and tighten sagging skin.

PDO Thread Lift

Traditionally, thread lift Singapore uses a needle piercing through the skin to insert the threads. However, Cutis PDO Thread Lift uses a blunt-tip cannula (a very thin tube with a rounded tip) instead of a needle because of the 3 significant benefits:

1. Minimized Trauma

One of the many advantages of using a blunt-tip cannula for PDO thread insertion is that it minimizes the risk for tissue trauma. A cannula is also longer and more flexible than a needle, so it is easier for the doctor to find clear pathways through tissues with just a single entry point.

As a result, tissue trauma is decreased, and in effect, bruising is lessened and recovery periods are significantly shortened.

2. Reduced Risk for Complications and Adverse Effects

Because needles can easily pierce through the skin and underlying tissues, it is very likely that it can damage blood vessels, too. In contrast, blunt-tip cannulas are safer to use because they simply push through the skin’s structure and move around blood vessels without damaging them, reducing risk for complications such as bleeding, pain, and infection.

3. Enhanced and Immediate Results

Since cannulas are more flexible than needles, the end result of a Cutis PDO thread lift using a cannula is significantly smoother and more natural-looking. The effect is a gentle and immediate lift as the blunt-tipped cannulas allow for more accurate PDO thread insertion.

Besides from using a cannula, it is equally important to consult a trained and certified doctor who has extensive experience in the thread lift procedure.

PDO Thread Lift in Cutis Laser Clinics

Cutis PDO thread lifts are only performed by a certified skin specialist, Dr. Sylvia Ramirez. Dr. Sylvia is a US Board and Harvard-trained doctor who completed Master Class Thread Lift training in Singapore, Spain, Korea and the UK.

During the procedure, the threads are inserted into the skin that trigger the skin’s ability to heal itself. The inserted threads will be completely absorbed in 12 months with new collagen fibers stimulated through the procedure and threads prolonging the effect of skin tightening and rejuvenation.

PDO thread lift is recommended for patients who want to significantly improve their facial contour and tighten lax and sagging skin but do not want to go through conventional surgical cosmetic procedures.

And just like other effective non surgical face lift treatments, it minimizes the effects of aging without the risks and adverse effects associated with surgery. The treatment also gently tightens the neck, jowls and brow areas without any incision or prolonged recovery period. Overall, you will have firmer, tighter and naturally lifted skin without surgery.
