What are Fiona Threads?
Fiona Threads can be made with two different types of material:
1.Polydioxanone (PDO), which is often used for stitching in
surgeries, lasts from six to twelve months depending on the
circumstances. The threads will typically be dissolved within no
more than one year, but help stimulates the production of collagène
in your skin which is an effect that can sometimes last until well
after the thread has gone.
2.Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA), another material often chosen for
surgical sutures, is even more effective at stimulating collagène
production with a thread lifetime of more than two years. Once
dissolved, the material breaks down into lactate, glucose, carbon
dioxide and water, and has become one of the commonly used
materials by advanced thread lift doctors for treatment in
Singapore. Even after the thread has dissolved, collagène
production can last for up to one more year.
3.Polycaprolactone(PCL), helps our skin produce collagen, which is
responsible for skin resilience and regeneration due to it’s
excellent charateristics. PCL is widely used as surgery stitch
thread which is also safe to human body, It is acknowledged to be
safe product approved by FDA. PCL sets you free from frequent
treatments as it lasts two years. PCL is safe because it is
completely decomposed and absorbed in our body through hydrolysis
PDO, PLLA, and PCL are all names of different types of materials.
These have been made into threads because they have high tensile
strength, and are inert, so that they do not cause problems with
The main difference is in longevity, stiffness and tensile
PDO (Polydioxanone) dissolves after 6-9 months
PLLA (Poly L Lactic Acid) dissolves after 12-18 months
PCL (Polycaprolactone) dissolves after 24- 36 months
A thread lift, also known as a suture lift or stitch lift, is a
non-surgical alternative to having a surgical face or neck lift. It
uses threads, which are specialised suture material, to lift the
skin of the face to a more youthful and favourable position. It can
be done with much less downtime,, and risk than a surgical
procedure. Thread lifts induce a long term lift in the skin.
What's the advantage of the MESH threads?
Mesh thread is with several mono thread mixed like a net so it will
give more volume to the skin and like filler use.So it is used in
deep line filler like nasobial filler.
Where can the treament be used?
Areas that can be treated with Threads are :
1. Reduce jowls
2. Define the jawline and angle of the jaw
3. Reduce double chin and sagging skin below chin
4. Cheek lift
5. Reduce eye bag and undereye wrinkles
6. Reduce crows feet and eye lift
7. Brow lift and reduce upper eyelid droop
8. Reduce fine lines on forehead
9. Reduce nasolabial folds (smile lines)
10.Reduce downward folds at corner of mouth
Who is suitable for this treatment?
1.Anyone that is suffering from sagging facial tissue and wants to
avoid a surgical procedure
2.Those with droopy or chubby areas of the face such as cheeks,
3.Individuals who have tried over-the-counter products or
alternative treatments but have not achieved the results they
Are there any side effects?
There are no significant side effects expected as a result of the
facelift. Minor side effects commonly seen in patients include:
1.Minor swelling for two to three days
2.Bruising (varies from person to person)
3.Mild discomfort (typically for a just one day)
