Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, renowned medical aesthetic doctor based in Singapore has developed a new non-surgical skin-lifting treatment to combat aging and sagging skin. Conceptualized and first implemented in June 2017, the 38-year old doctor said: “It is a new concept to lift sagging skin that can provide longer-lasting, natural lift.”
“Thread lift treatment started about 20 years ago to visibly lift sagging skin and restore V-shaped face – non-surgically.” says Dr. Siew, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics which he founded in September last year.
What Is Thread Lift?
Thread Lift treatment is a convenient, non-surgical way to treat sagging skin and reverse signs of aging. It works by tightening the skin and smoothening out wrinkles without the need to undergo surgery. The most popular types of threads that aesthetic doctors use to perform thread lift procedures are poly L-lactic acid (PLLA) or polydioxanone (PDO).
With local anesthesia administered to specific parts of the face, the doctor proceeds to insert the threads under the skin at precise points using either a cannula or fine needle. After the threads are inserted, the doctor applies slight pressure to guide and push the threads beneath the skin until they are firmly embedded. The threads are pulled firmly to lift and compress sagging skin so that it creates a V-shaped face.
This treatment is sometimes coined as ‘lunchtime facelift’ or ‘one-stitch facelift’ because of its simple and straightforward treatment that does not require patients to undergo general anesthesia.
