Program Overview

What is Thread and what are its treatments? 

Thread in aesthetic medicine is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses special threads to rejuvenate, lift or tighten sagging skin. The threads are typically made of a biocompatible material, such as polydioxanone (PDO), polylactic acid (PLA), or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which dissolves over time and stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. The threads are inserted under the skin using a small needle and then pulled tight to lift and reposition the skin.

There are different types of threads that can be used for different procedures, each with its own unique features and benefits. For example, mono or screw threads are used to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and create volume which is used for wrinkle removal and also skin rejuvenation, while cone or barbed threads are used to provide a more dramatic lift and repositioning of the skin. The threads can be inserted in different patterns and directions to achieve the desired effect, and multiple threads may be used in a single treatment to achieve a more comprehensive lift or effect.

Thread lifts are often used to treat sagging skin on the face, neck, and jowls, as well as other areas of the body. The procedure is generally considered safe and minimally invasive, with minimal downtime and a low risk of complications. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some risks and potential side effects, such as bruising, swelling, infection, and thread migration. It is important for patients to choose an experienced and qualified provider for a thread lift, and to discuss any potential risks and concerns before undergoing the procedure.

Types of Threads

There are several types of threads used in facial aesthetics procedures, including:

Mono threads

These threads are non-barbed and are used to stimulate collagen production and provide overall tightening and lifting to the skin. They have a single strand and are used to treat fine lines and wrinkles

Screw threads

These threads have a twisted shape that allows them to be screwed into the skin, providing lifting and tightening effects. These threads are also used to treat fine wrinkles in multiple areas of the face.

Cone (Barbed) threads

These threads are also called Cogs threads. They have barbs or hooks that are oriented in multiple directions, creating a stronger lifting effect for repositioning the tissue. The new generation of these threads is also used for moulding.
