V-Visage Threadlifts by JIA Clinic
Threadlifts are heralded as a kinder, gentler face-lift and thanks to today’s technological advances, the rejuvenation technique has been refined to a T. Performed with medical-grade threads that dissolve in about four to six months, the results of the V-Visage Threadlift over at JIA Clinic stays up for another six months thanks to the collagen boost it provides. “There are many types of threads for this procedure,” says Dr Teh Jia Li. “The double twisted fine threads stimulate collagen in the specific areas and give that lifting and firming effect.”
Performed without local anaesthesia—only a topical numbing cream is applied prior, the treatment subtly lifts, firms, and tightens facial contours within minutes. “You can do it anywhere—from face to forehead, breasts to buttocks … anywhere you want lift,” adds Dr Teh. “But the best is for the jawline, as I would recommend Botox for the forehead, and fillers for the cheeks.”
Mild swelling may occur depending on skin sensitivity, but should clear naturally within several days, leaving a visibly sharper jawline that shaves off years—without having to go under the knife, making this near painless threadlift suitable to be paired with other treatments such as the Thermage or high-intensity focused ultrasound, for an added boost. The results are evident—a smoother and more sculpted jawline, without the long downtime and recuperation period.
