What is a Thermage Thread Lift?

Senescence has been a concern of many people as it will result in sagging skin, wrinkles, and even volume loss. These facial flaws make people lose confidence and become insecure about their appearance. The facelift has been the golden standard in correcting any facial imperfection but not that many people are open to the idea of undergoing surgery, especially facial surgery. That’s why there are alternatives that bring comparable results as a facelift does but in a less invasive way. Two of those are Thermage FLX and Thread Lift.

Thermage FLX lifts and tightens the skin in an effective, non-invasive way by utilizing the heating effect of radio frequency radiating from the handpiece to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Thermage brings back a younger and fresher look without any damage to the skin.

Wherein thread lift draws taunt the skin by inserting bio-thread into the skin and then tightening them. It’s a minimally invasive way compared to a surgical facelift but still effective. The collagen thread will dissolve over time but the tightening effect can still be maintained thanks to the continuous collagen generated from the thread.

Thermage thread lift combines the above techniques to maximize the lifting effect of 2 non-surgical facelifts so customers can archive a satisfactory result with a relatively shorter recovery time and minimal damage to the facial skin.

Working principles

– Thermage FLX:

Thermage FLX uses radio frequency to generate heat into the deep, collagen-rich layers of the skin, while the tip vibrates and cools the surface to help aid in patient comfort. The generated heat separates the water molecules from the fibrous collagen, leading to an immediate contraction, resulting in skin tightening.

– Thread Lift:

The thread used in this procedure is collagen bio-thread, contained in a thin, hollow cannula and inserted into the skin’s subcutaneous layers. The thread latches to loose tissue inside the skin and is repositioned as the needle is removed, which helps draw taunt the sagging skin.
