Alas! Gone are the days when your cheeks looked plump like a baby’s and your face looking fresh all the time as if you have just gotten out of the shower. Growing old is truly inevitable and the sad part is this: age does not only come in numbers but also shows up in the body — particularly in the face!

You probably woke up one morning, gazed at yourself in the mirror, and wondered who was the person staring back at you looking like a worn out bloodhound. Saggy eye bags, droopy cheeks, and wrinkles each vie for their own place on your face. This is probably why you opened your laptop and started searching for ways to bring back your youthful glow.

Well, today is your lucky day as we have the right material you are looking for! Here are facial thread lift reviews from 5 Singapore beauty bloggers!

Silhouette Soft Face Threadlift by Charlene

Charlene ventured out into the face thread lift scene after being bothered by her nasolabial folds or laugh lines in simple terms. She has initially done fillers to address this flaw but was not satisfied as the results were not as long as she wanted them to be.

For her treatment, Charlene shares in her blog that her doctor recommended a face thread lift with the use of Silhouette Soft threads. She mentions that the threads used in this treatment are US FDA approved and can be used for nose thread lift, also. Charlene discloses that during the consultation, the doctor determined the parts of her face that needed treatment. These are her loose cheeks and nasolabial folds.

Charlene narrates that before the start of her facial thread lift, her face was cleaned fully. After this, the doctor drew markings on her face as a guide as to where the threads will be inserted. A couple of needle pricks followed this, as local anaesthesia was injected to numb her face so that Charlene was pain-free all throughout the procedure. Once the local anaesthesia has taken effect, the doctor proceeded to insert the threads under the skin of Charlene. She discloses that there was minimal pain felt during the procedure. Charlene also mentions that she felt the threads moving under her skin as the doctor tugged and tugged about.

The entire facial thread lift procedure, according to Charlene’s experience, lasted for 20 minutes. This is excluding the consultation time. And the results are seen instantly after the application of the threads! Charlene raves about how her cheeks look plump and the disappearance of her nasolabial folds! In addition, her jawline was more defined and the thread lift enabled her to achieve a V-shaped face. Take a good look at her before and after photos and be amazed! I know I am!

As for downtime, Charlene shares that only minimal downtime is needed and would vary between individuals. Charlene’s doctor prescribed some oral antibiotics and topical cream for aftercare treatment. She was also advised to skip on alcohol as this could cause the skin to bruise.

Charlene gets to enjoy the successful results of her facial thread lift for about over year. To read more about her face-lift journey, you can click on this link.

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift to Lift Cheeks and Define Jawline by Xinyi Soh

Xinyi’s quest is to always look radiant and youthful. During her consultation with her chosen dermatologist, her doctor suggested for her to get a face-lift done. At first, Xinyi shares that she was afraid and anxious to undergo such a procedure after learning how it is administered. But after receiving an assurance from her doctor, she decided to give it a go.

The first step to Xinyi’s face thread lift procedure is facial cleansing. All the makeup from her face is removed thoroughly. Next, numbing cream was spread across her face and covered with plastic film. The doctor then marks out several points on her face where the threads will be inserted. After the marks are settled, Xinyi got a few jabs of local anaesthetic injected onto her face. Xinyi mentions that the injections were not painful and that a vibrating device was pressed to her face in order to distract her from feeling the pricking of the needle.

As the local anaesthetic took effect, the doctor began to insert the threads into Xinyi’s face with the use of a needle. Xinyi shares that she was surprised that she felt nothing during this step, other than slight pricks on her skin and pressure on her face. After the threads are tightened and set in place, the doctor snipped off the excess threads.

Done! The results showed immediately after the procedure! Xinyi mentions that even her husband was so impressed with the results of her facial thread lift, he was keen on trying it on himself!

Notice the threads dangling from Xinyi’s face! These are trimmed off as the procedure is finished.

Xinyi does not mention any aftercare prescription for her face. Although she discloses that she was advised by her doctor not to do exaggerated contortions on her face. She also was not able to open her mouth widely after the procedure, but eating was manageable.

The face will feel a bit sore, as Xinyi recounts, but this is only temporary. A few needle marks were also left on her face, but eventually faded.

I am utterly impressed with the results of Xinyi’s facial thread lift! Her jawline indeed looked finer and her cheeks looked skin-tight!

My mum Tried the Silhouette Soft Thread Lift to Lift Her Sagging Skin by Joanna Soh

This review by Joanna Soh is not based on her own experience but her mom’s. However, I found it worthy to be included in this list as her review contains so much information about the facial thread lift procedure done on her mom’s face. Plus, I give it an A+ on credibility because, as compared to the first two younger bloggers, this procedure was done on a much older individual, so the effectiveness of the procedure will be really put to the test as the skin composition of Joanna’s mom is much more prone to sagging due to her age.

Curious on whether this facial thread lift is a success? Read on!

Joanna shares in her blog that her mom has been considering getting a facial thread lift for quite some time after learning about positive reviews on it. She mentions that her mom wanted her face to look more lifted and youthful.

Joanna narrates that her mom’s thread lift treatment started with a consultation. The doctor meticulously assessed her mom’s face, explained and made recommendations as to what facial flaws needed solutions in order to achieve a younger look. Prior to getting on with the thread lift, a photo of Joana’s mom’s face was taken for the clinic’s reference.

Next, Joanna mentions that the makeup of her mom was removed. After which the doctor proceeded to mark the dots on the face. These dots served as the entry points for the threads. Then, the procedure progressed to the injection of local anesthesia. There is no indication on Joanna’s blog that numbing cream was applied prior to the mentioned steps and it was not implied that her mom felt any pain during the anaesthesia’s injection, so I am assuming that Joanna only missed to document the numbing part.

Despite how painful it looks, the procedure is pain-free thanks to the numbing cream and local anaesthesia.

Joanna embeds a series of photos documenting the insertion of threads on her mom’s face. One of the pictures is not for the faint of heart, as it depicts a surgical suture pinned through the side of her mom’s cheeks. She explains that this procedure is done so as to lift the face’s soft tissues. This will also cause the skin on the face to tighten. The threads were finally cut off as the procedure was completed. Despite the horrific appearance of what transpired during the treatment on Joanna’s photos, she assures her readers that the atmosphere in the clinic all thorough out was relaxed! Whew!

Feel queasy yet? Sutures help in the tightening of saggy skin.

My Threadlift Review by Michelle

Michelle admits in her blog that she edits her photos due to her saggy and chubby cheeks. This is due to her weight loss, which she concludes brought about a reduction of her skin’s collagen. This is the reason why she chose to have Ultra V and Korean Lift done on her face as she learned that this procedure promotes the production of collagen.

Michelle shares that her procedure commenced after consultation with the doctor. During the consultation, her doctor explained what to expect in and after the thread lift procedure. Michelle mentions she was told there might be some inflammation and bruising as a result of the thread lift, although these reactions may vary per person.

First things first, Michelle’s face was cleansed. Makeup and dirt removed in preparation for the thread lift treatment. Following this, Michelle was given some painkillers and her face was covered in numbing cream.  The doctor then continued to mark several areas on Michelle’s face with points as a guide to where the threads will be inserted.

Notice how the cheeks of Michelle are tucked in, revealing a much-defined jawline.

Although Michelle does not include photos of the actual thread insertions, she shares a picture, which shows how her face looked like when the thread lift was done on one side of her cheeks.  The result was astonishing! It was evident how the left side of her cheeks appears much firmer. From a then triangle-shaped and cheeky face, Michelle was able to achieve a tighter and V-shaped face thanks to facial thread lift!

For aftercare, Michelle discloses that she had to use cold packs on her cheeks, as they were a swelling a bit after the procedure. She was also given several medications for a faster recovery.

Korean V Lift by Charlotte Ashlene

Beauty blogger Charlotte Ashlene’s facial thread lift experience is slightly different from the other reviews. She says that she decided to go for a Korean V Lift when her husband mentioned that her face looked squarish again.

Charlotte Ashlene recounts that at the start of her treatment, she was given some medicines for managing pain and some antibiotics. These were also a part of her prescription for aftercare.

After ingesting the medicines, Charlotte Ashlene’s face was wrapped up with numbing cream and plastic film. When all sensation has left her face as the effect of the numbing cream took place, her doctor injected local anaesthesia to further suppress the pain brought about by the procedure. The doctor marked out her cheeks and other parts of her face before the threads were inserted.

Application of numbing cream is not a step to be missed.

During the insertion of the threads, Charlotte Ashlene comments that she felt some slight discomfort. Despite the numbing cream and anaesthesia, she still felt the tiny pricks from the needles used.

Charlotte Ashlene proceeds to narrate the after effect of the procedure. She encountered slight swelling in both cheeks. The swelling started to subside 4 days after the treatment. There were also some bruises on her face, which were temporary.

From a full and rounder face, the facial thread lift’s results made Charlotte Ashlene’s face is much more defined.
