An innovative thread lift technique for facial rejuvenation and complication management

Aging of face is an unavoidable process. While there are multiple traditional procedures for facial rejuvenation, thread lift has become an increasingly popular procedure all over the world. At present, one of the most promising dissolvable thread lift uses polydioxanone (PDO) material that has been in use for many years. The thread itself not only provides lifting benefits, but the material stimulates collagen regeneration as well. Here we reviewed an innovative technique combining absorbable thread lift with small incision rhytidectomy for patients with excess skin. Performing thread lift on the patient alone could not achieve the desired results. Management for complication was also revie

Performing Non-Surgical Brow Lifts Using Fillers & Threads

Naturally, brows should lie just above the upper edge of the orbit. Although all brows are different in shapes and sizes, the outer portion of the brow is generally higher than the inner portion. Ageing, decreased skin laxity, effects of gravity and repetitive periorbital muscle contractions are contributing factors that will result to sagging brows, producing a droopy appearance over time. The loss of temporal support to the lateral brow, alongside volume loss in the upper eyelid, can also create the illusion of brow ptosis. While there are still surgical options available, ­non-surgical treatment for brow lifts is on the rise. Brow lift treatments aim to reverse the effects of aging and gr

Filler Injection Techniques for Cheekbone Augmentation (Video)

Injectable fillers has become one of the most requested minimally invasive treatment options from patients to re-volumize their aging face. However, the use of Bovine collagen was limited both by its short duration of effect and its potential for allergic reaction. With the introduction of hyaluronic acid (HA) as a facial filling agent in 2003, the world of fillers was revolutionised. For the augmentation of the cheekbones, or lateral malar prominence, fillers may be used. (Alternatively, permanent malar implants may be inserted surgically, or fat augmentation can be performed). This week, we will cover techniques on filler injection for cheekbone augmentation, which is a procedure highly de

Outcomes of PDO Knotless Thread Lifting for Facial Rejuvenation

The process of aging affects the contour, texture, and colour of the face. Facial shape is mostly transformed by uneven descent and laxity of skin and soft tissues. Texture is primarily dependent on fine wrinkles and pores of the skin. As of late, there has been an increase in demand from patients who are looking for minimally invasive aesthetic procedures with minimal downtime and risk. In this article, we will be reviewing a recent study on the results of PDO knotless thread lift for facial rejuvenation, and it proves that facial rejuvenation, using PDO thread is a safe and effective procedure associated with only minor complications when performed on patients with modest face sagging, fin

The Efficacy of Platelet-Rich Plasma in the Field of Hair Restoration and Facial Aesthetics

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are used to accelerate the healing of injured muscles, joints, tendons and other sports injuries. However, PRP injections have become an increasing trend for cosmetic procedures, particularly in the treatment of hair loss called Androgenic Alopecia (AGA), also known as male or female pattern baldness. PRP is also currently being used for facial rejuvenation and generation of new collagen fibres. Below is the summary an review article published on Journal of Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery for The Efficacy of PRP Therapy in the Field of Hair Restoration and Facial Aesthetics: PRP in Hair Restoration Through the conducted meta-analysis, it was found that 3
