3 Types of PDO Threads in Thread Lifting

Here we would like to introduce to you the three types of PDO Threads that are often used in combination in Korean Thread Lifting therapy. 1. Mono Threads Mono threads are smooth threads without barbs. Many of these thread type are placed into the face in a mesh-like fashion for skin tightening effect. Skin tightening usually improves after collagen starts forming around the threads. The treatment areas are often neck lines, neck sagginess, forehead and under eyes. Between 10 -20 mono threads are usually inserted for each treatment area. In order to sustain a lift, the threads are attached to an “anchoring point” of the scalp or face. Mono threads tighten the skin but without significant lif

Nasal augmentation and enhancement is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the world, especially in Asia. Amongst patients in the 18 to 30 year old age group, the shape of the nose is the top priority for facial enhancement(1). This concern is consistent with the opinions of physicians when asked about the area of the face they would enhance in this age group.

Background As society changes, patients have high expectations of plastic surgery and rapid recovery after surgery. A thread-based facelift meets these requirements and is growing in popularity. Methods Former thread lifts were either floating or fixed types. The authors used both types.

The Blue RoseTM thread was used for the combined-type facelift, as it is stronger than other threads. Improvements were measured using the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). Results Eighteen patients out of 28 were followed

'Threads Of Life' Facelift Is Horrifying, Yet Fascinating (Video)

This week, we would like to share an article published by Huffington Post about Dr Terry practising Korean PDO threads in UK and how it significantly benefited her patients. Across the pond in the U.K., Dr. Terry Loong, an integrative cosmetic skin doctor, is mastering the art of "thread" lifting, a nonsurgical facelift technique that uses "a series of microfilaments positioned at specific areas of the face to lift the eye brows, lift sagging skin over the cheeks, reduce nasolabial and marionette lines, define the jawline, reducing the roundness of the face and reduce double chins." In other words: this procedure inserts bio-compatible and bio-absorbable threads (we repeat, threads) into the
