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.

Mono PDO are smooth threads without barbs.

  • Face Thread Lift: 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 are threads with barbs that anchor into the skin like small hooks and hold the skin mechanically against gravity.

  • Face Thread Lift: 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.
  • Nose Thread Lift: Cog threads are strategically placed to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome such as lifting the nasal tip, refining the bridge or correcting minor asymmetries. Cog threads provide immediate structural support and stimulate collagen production in the treated area leading to a firmer and more lifted appearance.

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. 

Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural, unavoidable process due to the skin losing collagen and elastin. Mono PDO thread lift will stimulate new collagen production to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the area that the thread is inserted.

Nose deformities can be classified as either cosmetic or functional. Nose thread lift can help reshape and enhance the appearance of the nose instantly without surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have 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. 


Thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts and tightens sagging skin on the face and neck. It involves the insertion of dissolvable threads under the skin using a fine needle. These threads have small barbs or cones that anchor to the skin and are then gently pulled to lift and reposition the skin. The threads also stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to improve skin texture and elasticity. Thread lift is a relatively quick and safe procedure, with minimal downtime and few side effects. It is a popular alternative to traditional facelift surgery for those looking for a non-surgical solution to aging skin.
