How Thread Lifts Can Enhance Your Facial Features

How Thread Lifts Can Enhance Your Facial Features


Let’s talk about fine lines and ageing. Although wrinkles only go where your smiles have been, they can often hit your self-esteem. Thankfully, there are alternatives that help turn back the hands of the clock. And yes, we’re talking about everyone’s favorite cosmetic search term: thread lifts. 

A thread lift can tighten the skin to make it look younger. But more than youthful skin, did you know that thread lifts can also enhance your face? Find out more below. 

Thread lifts have been here for years, but their recent innovations pushed them back into the spotlight. This treatment employs threads that dissolve into your body to lift and tighten your skin. These threads are one-of-a-kind, by the way; they have sharp barbs that also boost collagen production in your skin. The barbed threads pierce your skin to push it into healing mode, then produce more collagen and younger cells. Over time, these threads dissolve and absorb into your skin, so they are completely safe! Oh, did we mention that this is also non-surgical and has minimal downtime? Yes, no scarring or severe bruising after the procedure!

Another thing to love about thread lift clinics has to offer is their versatility. Here are some of the best facial areas to get thread lifts and how they can enhance your face:

Thread lift for forehead

They say that seeing frown lines means you’ve lived a life of wisdom. While that’s true, these pesky forehead lines appear when you move your face by yawning, frowning, laughing, or making any expressions. 

However, the key contributor behind your forehead wrinkles is your collagen breaking down, which causes your skin to sag. A thread lift for your forehead helps push back the sagging skin and smooth out all the wrinkles. It can also elevate your forehead to make you look younger and more elegant. Plus, thread lifts for your forehead will speed up cell rejuvenation and collagen production. This will give you a long-lasting, sustainable lift to your forehead area. Bye, frown lines!

Thread lift for brows

Yes, you read that right – threads can also improve how your brow looks to compliment your face better! Also known as brow lift, this non-surgical cosmetic procedure uses threads to lift your eyebrows and tighten the area. This is especially great with a forehead thread lift since it ensures a proportional lift to your upper facial area.

Brow lifts can improve the contour of your eye area and tighten sagging skin to give you a more youthful appearance. As we like to call it, our eyebrows are more like distant cousins than identical twins. You know they’re related, yet they are very different, which makes getting ready in the morning harder. Thanks to thread lifts, you can achieve evenly shaped and angled brows for an effortless look every day!

Thread lift for cheeks

Another area that sags a lot as you age is your cheeks. Luckily, thread lifts here in Singapore get the memo – they can transform it and revive its round, full shape! The special threads used in a nose thread lift procedure carefully reposition the muscles in your cheeks. They also hold the skin and fat underneath in place, which helps add volume and fullness to the area. It also tightens the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

You can also ask your doctor to mix fillers with thread lifts to enjoy the lifting benefits for longer. Combining these procedures is completely safe, although you may need to space out the treatments.

Thread lift for nose

Nose thread lifts in Singapore give your nose the same effects as a surgical nose job. You may be more familiar with its other moniker, the Hiko thread lift, which translates to “high nose” in Korean. A nose thread lift procedure lifts and shapes your nose like a nose job but sans surgery. It gives you a tighter, slimmer, and more refined nose, making you look younger and more sophisticated.

Many people also prefer getting nose thread lifts in Singapore to nose fillers because they last longer. Moreover, the threads naturally dissolve in your body, meaning they won’t lump or spread around your nose.

Thread lift for jawline

Over time, your jawline changes shape and tends to become larger than the rest of your face. This is because your bone structure also changes as you age, affecting the shape and angle of your jawline. If your jawline starts sagging or looking different, you can get thread lifts to improve their appearance. It tightens your skin to restore its angle as if the clock turned back its hands. Thread lifts on the jawline can also target drooping jowls and marionette lines, giving you a holistic youthful appearance.

Nose thread lift by SW1

A nose thread lift procedure uses polydioxanone or PDO threads to reshape and lift the nose. By employing these threads underneath your nose, it elevates the tip and slims down the bridge. Take the popular Infinity Nose Threadlift for example. This treatment can be divided into two parts – nose bridge augmentation and nose tip augmentation (or nose tip plasty). It helps to give greater definition to the bridge while still looking natural, and creating a higher and sharper nose bridge. Fans of nose fillers will love how this treatment can help make the nose sharper, in a way that fillers can never attain.
