How it works
How does Thread Lift work?
Thread lift treatment uses PDO (Polydioxanone) which is biocompatible (well tolerated by the human body) and bioabsorbable (absorbed by the skin naturally). How thread lift works depends on the type of threads being used. There are 2 types of thread lift available at GEM clinic:
- Mono PDO : They are smooth threads without barbs. Mono threads are inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern to achieve skin tightening effects. It also stimulates the synthesis of collagen production in the treated area. It is good for clients of all age groups who desire firmer skin.
- Cog PDO : These threads have barbs that anchor into the skin like small hooks and hold the skin mechanically against gravity. The barbs form a supportive structure to lift sagging tissue. Cog threads are an effective way to achieve skin lifting and a youthful facial V-shape instantly.

About thread lift
What condition it treats
Saggy skin occurs as a result of collagen and elastin reduction, and loss of fat pads in the skin. Cog PDO thread lift will immediately lift sagging skin on the face and neck along with stimulating new collagen formation below the skin.
Facelift is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face by lifting up and pulling back facial skin.
GEM HIFUPro is a non-invasive treatment that helps to tighten the skin by stimulating 4000 collagen points in 3 layers under the skin. It is part of a growing trend for treating effects of aging such as saggy skin, fine lines and wrinkles but without injectables or surgery.
Frequently Asked Questions
The threads will be naturally absorbed into the tissue within 6-8 months and provide the firming effect which lasts up to 1 year.
Patients can resume normal daily activity immediately after the thread lift treatment. Common side effects are slight discomfort at the site of insertion, bruising and redness which will subside within a few hours.
Thread lift can be done on various areas of the face including the cheeks, brow, nasolabial folds, laugh lines, jawline and neck.
You may feel minor discomfort. However, numbing cream(Mono PDO thread) or local anesthesia(Cog PDO thread) will be given prior to the procedure to minimize the discomfort. The needles used during this thread lift treatment are so fine you will feel little to no pain.
