What is Botox?

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is an injectable treatment that is primarily targeted to treat wrinkles, fine lines and creases on the face. It can also be used as a non-permanent facial contouring treatment to slim down your profile. Botox is more widely known as an effective anti-aging product for improving the appearance of your skin. Botox is able to treat signs of advanced aging as it promotes collagen production and skin elasticity. In Singapore, Botox is used to temporarily give patients a younger and tighter look.

What is Threadlift?

Traditionally, facelifts involve surgery and lots of downtime. Threadlifts also known as a barbed suture lift in Singapore, on the other hand, are the minimally invasive alternative to a facelift. Threadlifts work by inserting medical grade threads or MINTS (minimally invasive non-surgical threads) into your face/other parts of your body. MINTS are made from Biodegradable Polydioaxanon (PDO) threads, there are tiny barbs or hooks along the thread, and are dissolvable by your body. They are approved by the FDA, are less prone to infections and breakage, and have been used for the last 30 years in the field of Urology, Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, and Gastroenterology.

What is MINT™ PDO?

MINT™ PDO thread is a minimally invasive procedure. With patented barbs strategically placed and molded all around the thread, the skin tissues are pulled into place and the barbs anchor onto sagging skin. The threads can also be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look.

How does Threadlifts work?

Threadlifts work by incorporating two mechanisms – tightening of the skin by pulling on the MINTS and the subsequent production of collagen. 

  • After local anaesthesia, MINTS are inserted via a cannula into your skin where the barbed hooks grab onto your existing tissues and muscles.
  • The threads are then tightened.
  • This gives your saggy skin a taut and smooth appearance, thereby replicating the skin of your youth before gravity took a toll.
  • Once the hooked barbs grip onto your existing tissues and muscles, it replicates injury to your skin, which in turn results in the production of collagen.
  • Collagen is naturally present in our body and is one of the building blocks of our skin, bones, hair, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It is responsible for preventing saggy skin and maintaining its plumbness.
  • As collagen is produced, it contributes to the lifting and sculpting effect on your skin in addition to the tightened MINTS which lifted your skin.
  • Your skin will now not only look lifted and sculpted, but it will also look plump and youthful.

Which area can be targeted?

  • Eye
  • Eyebrows
  • Nose
  • Jawline
  • Cheekbone
  • Smile lines
  • Neck lines

MINT™ PDO procedure takes an average of one hour but can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. Patients will see immediate results after the procedure that can last up to 1 year.

Benefits of a Threadlift

  • Instant results: once the MINTS are tightened, you will immediately notice your skin is lifted and sculpted.
  • No downtime: since no surgery is required, you can have a threadlift in the afternoon during your lunch break and head back to the office without anyone noticing (other than your sudden youthful appearance).
  • Long-term results: as threadlifts also result in the production of collagen, you can expect results to last up to 12 months.
  • Reduction in appearance of wrinkles and fine lines: as your skin is pulled and tightened, your wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed out.
  • Minimally invasive: no surgery is involved 

Quick procedure: approximately 15-30 minutes

What can I expect after Threadlifts treatment in Singapore?

Immediately after a threadlift, there might be some mild bruising or inflammation, but it will resolve after some time. You might also experience some nausea due to the anaesthesia and you must avoid facial creams and make-up for 2 days following your procedure. 

The lifting and sculpting effect of a threadlift will be immediate but it will take some time for collagen to be producted, which contributes to the plumpness of your skin.

What conditions can Threadlifts procedure resolve in Singapore?

Threadlifts are most effective in individuals between the ages of 30-50 years old. It can resolve the following issues:

  • Saggy skin
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Loose skin

How many treatment sessions do I need?

MINTS are biodegradable which means they will eventually dissolve after a while. Once they do, you can arrange for another threadlift session to rejuvenate your skin again.

Are there any common complications or side effects of Threadlifts treatment in Singapore?

  • Protrusion of threads: it is always important to get your threadlift done by an experienced specialist to ensure that the MINTS are inserted correctly.
  • Infection: although this complication is very rare, it could still happen.
  • Skin dimpling: if a threadlift is not executed well, it can cause indentations or skin dimpling to occur.
  • Facial asymmetry: if there is insufficient lifting to one side of the face, it will look asymmetrical.
