It is a minimally-invasive procedure involving the insertion of threads in the deeper layer of the skin to immediately lift the sagging areas of the middle and lower face including the neck area. The inserted thread will then promote the skin’s self-healing process triggering the production of new collagen formation.
At Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we use Dr. Perfect V-Line which include different types of threads suitable for immediate skin lifting, tightening and skin rejuvenation. Dr. Perfect V-Line PDO threads are both KFDA and CE marked and are made of absorbable polydioxanone (PDO), a material that has been used in surgery for many years.
We are excited to introduce the latest addition in PDO thread lift therapy: The 4D and Multi Threads. While they work in a similar way as the previous type of thread, they provide additional benefits.
Here are the key reasons you should give them a try:
Better and Faster Skin Lifting
The new 4D threads are stronger and thicker, offering better grip due to the 4-dimension cogs. This only means that when the threads are inserted into the skin tissue, they will have more hold or grip that can help in lifting the skin. This then translates to better tightening effects, with faster results and additional lift.
These stronger and thicker cogs are ideal for lifting sagging cheeks, as well as the neck and jowl area. Cog threads can also be used in combination with mono threads for additional tightening and rejuvenation benefits, especially in other parts of the face like the jawline and cheeks.
Less Discomfort and Treatment Time
With the new Multi Threads, about 14 strands of thick sutures tied to guiding threads are simultaneously inserted in the skin. This can remarkably reduce the discomfort of having multiple entry points which also reduces the treatment time, while maximizing the effect of the treatment.
More Collagen and Elastin Stimulation
The new PDO threads are thicker than conventional ones, which only mean that there will be more stimulation of collagen and elastin around the treatment area. With more production of both protein substances, you are likely to expect a smoother and younger looking skin on where the threads have been inserted.
Safe Treatment that is Naturally Absorbed by the Body
Since these new PDO threads are inserted through a cannula, this makes the PDO therapy safer, with minimized downtime and bruising after the procedure. It is also good to know that all types of PDO threads are safe and do not produce any allergic reactions. They are dissolved in the body within six to 12 months, metabolized in water and carbon dioxide which the body gradually absorbs.
However, the resulting lift remains lasting for at least two years or as long as your own body’s collagen can hold the lift.
Can Be Considered as Preventative Treatment
You can undergo a 4D PDO Thread Lift therapy, as a preventative treatment or in slowing the signs of aging on the skin. What makes it a safer and better choice than traditional face lift is that it is a non-surgical procedure which does not have any downtime. You won’t have to go under the knife to lift your sagging skin, especially in the neck and jowl area.
