Thread Lift


You only have to lightly press around your eyebrows or at the top of your cheeks to see what a little lift might do to your features. Brows that are slightly drooping, or cheeks that are less than buoyant, might all be signs that you are not in the first bloom of youth but you might also be far from facially flagging either. Whilst you want to maintain a fresh look with your wardrobe and hair whilst you are still in your prime, you may feel that your face could do with a pep-up too before it gets to the stage where you feel major renovations are needed. Whilst you might want to look a little fuller with youthful bounce around your cherubim cheeks, you might not necessarily want to nip or tuck. And yet, when all is said and done, a facial is not quite going to cut it either. Of course, some signs of ageing can add character to your face and you might be at a stage where you do not want to turn back the hands of times so much as slightly halt them and make them look more rejuvenated in the process. It is a fact of life that the muscles on the face start to show ageing faster than anywhere else on the body, apart from around the neck area. Eyebrows which sit without drooping and cheeks which are not desperately trying to sag to create jowls and deep lines which pull your features downwards, are all signs of youthful vitality which are etched on the features of your face.

There are many minor procedures available for facial tightening which can be done in a relatively short amount of time. This type of lunch-hour facial treatment does not require any incisions and is seen as a temporary lift which can be repeated if needs be in the future. The Thread Lift is a procedure without any scarring which tightens and pulls the tissues around the eyebrows and cheeks upwards. The threads are placed under the skin where they dissolve over time, stimulating the face to produce more collagen which leads to a tightening and lifting effect with greater elasticity. It is not that the threads pull the skin or the muscles up, but that their presence improves your skin texture.  The threads are inserted in position and once in place, the tiny barbs are gently opened to lift and reposition the underlying facial tissue to give the client a more youthful appearance.

The Thread Lift is carried out using local anesthetic in less than an hour. Your doctor will pull the skin gently up on the face and the threads are then put painlessly into the skin, under the dermis. They are so small that no incisions are needed and they then stay in place. About 30-40 threads are put in each side of the face and the ends of the threads are cut and knotted. These then retract deep into the skin. They are made of soluble material and so disappear after around six or seven months, although they still keep working and work for even longer if combined with Acculift – for up to two years.

Who You Are
There have been so many advances in technology and knowledge about facial procedures in recent years that those who would not consider a full face-lift are opting for this non-invasive surgery more readily. You might be in your 20s and 30s and find that you can really see the difference with a little lifting around the cheek or eyebrow area. Those in their 40s and 50s can also benefit, but as the skin ages and sags the effect is less pronounced and so your skin might be showing some signs of ageing but will not benefit too greatly if ageing is at an advanced stage.

Who We Are
Dr Ronachai Komthong MD, who iscertified in the United States, United Kingdom, Singapore and Thailand, with advanced training in Japan set up Naravee in the capital of Thailand. International standard procedures are carried out in the main hospital and separate clinic in the heart of Bangkok. We offer consultations about what each procedure entails, your suitability and what  results you can expect  in a personable, informative and in-depth way which allows you to make a clear, informed decision based on the doctor’s advice.

After the procedure you may experience a little discomfort or numbness along with some minor bruising and swelling. These common side effects subside after a few weeks and the results can be more readily appreciated. It is recommended that you take about a week off work to recuperate.

Whilst some people find the results better than they imagined, some people might find that this treatment does not work as well on their particular skin and so there is a risk that their expectations are not fully met. As well as the skill of the doctor results are also based on these non-controllable, factors.

Because the Thread Lift is a quick procedure but still requires some recuperation it is ideal to have this done either alone or as part of a package whilst visiting sunny Thailand, where you can rest and relax on the beach or by the pool with year round sunshine, which is ideal for recuperating. Your first step is to find out more information. You can get in touch with a dedicated Naravee doctor through email, or telephone, or by filling out the contact form on this website.
