Threadlift and Vitamin C Drip at Young Shine Aesthetic Clinic Taipei
I went back to Young Shine Aesthetic Clinic after 6 months because I loved the effect of my first try out attempt with what threadlift can do to my face so I decided to do the threadlift over my entire face this time to further enhance the effect. The threads that were inserted 6 months ago encourages the body’s production of collagen making my skin appear naturally fuller over time, this effect will stay even after the sutures have dissolved. Which is really cool! Best invention for aesthetics ever!
If you haven’t read my previous blog post on Quill Threadlift at Young Shine Aesthetic Clinic Taipei Review.
With threadlift, the skill of the doctor you chose is extremely important to see good results because threads randomly inserted will not help create the right pulling effect therefore will have no use. But in proper hands of a skilled Doctor, Threadlift can be a very useful tool. Thread lifts cost less and require less downtime compare to surgical facelift. Some plastic surgeons promote the thread lift as a “lunchtime lift” or “weekend facelift.” Usually it can be performed in about one hour. Doctor Jenny from Young Shine Aesthetic Clinic is an expert especially when it comes to Threadlift techniques. She is one of the most down to earth, nicest doctors I have ever met. My friend Tiffany came with me together seeking for acne problem scar treatment with Doctor Jenny’s clinic too.
First signs of aging usually affects areas generally include the cheeks, the eyebrows and other areas around the eyes, the jowls and the neck. Younger people may experience cheek and brow ptosis (sagging caused by weakened muscles) as well. For these people especially, a thread lift may be a good alternative compared to the more invasive procedures necessary to correct problems in older people’s faces. With minimal signs of aging in my thirties, I feel that threadlift is just the perfect treatment for me who need just a small lift.
I was given oral painkiller medication and had numbing cream applied on my face for 20 minutes before the Thread lift procedure. The additional bonus thing to have is to have a vitamin c drip too at the same time as it will speed up recovery and reduce swelling on top of the great whitening effect from the drip. Vitamin C Drip is really popular in Korea and Taiwan nowadays because it not just built up your body’s immune system, it also helps your skin to be fairer and nicer. They called it 美白针but instead of actual injection they let it into your system using drip for faster and better effect. Apart from threadlift, I also had my rhinoplasty nose surgery done this time in Taipei so every 2 days I will go back to Young Shine Aesthetic Clinic for the Vitamin C drip to help recover from my surgery faster and it did really helped me a lot. The whole drip process usually takes about 20 minutes so I will either just read a magazine or lie in their beauty room for a short nap.
Ok now let’s go back to the Threadlift. I got so excited about the whitening vitamin C drip that I got carried away talking about it. hahaha 🙂
How does Threadlift work?
In a thread lift, barbed sutures (threads) are used to lift sagging eyebrows and eyelids, deep nasolabial folds (those furrows between your nose and the corners of your mouth) or aging neck tissues. Doctor Jenny would use a thin needle to insert the sutures under my facial tissues. So that the barbs on one end of the thread grab and lift the sagging skin, and the teeth on the other end anchor the skin to the underlying facial tissues. No incisions or stitches are required, and no scars are produced. The skill of Doctor Jenny is really good too so you can see no swelling on my face after too.
These threads are completely bio-degradable, meaning they will not need to be removed.
Because I had to have threads put all over the sides of my face, Doctor Jenny injected local anesthesia along the sides of my face for better comfort during the whole process and I hardly felt a thing after that.
You can see my face looked quite relaxed during the procedure.
During the procedure, Doctor Jenny make small incisions in key locations and insert a threaded needle to lift the subcutaneous tissue and suspend the lift with the thread. The barbs on these threads will lock in place and encourage collagen formation upon insertion to lift very specific areas.
At the incisions points, a skin colored sticker is pasted over the wound for 2-3 days just in case the thread get knocked out before the entry hole closed up. I was given a packet of them of which I can change and stick on new ones after shower/face wash.
I experience a lack of sensitivity or numbness in the treated area due to the numbing cream and local anesthesia for a couple of hours after that. A bit achy feeling on some parts of the face though there wasn’t any visible swelling. The aching feeling subsides within a few days after the procedure.
The first time 6 months ago, I had 3 threads mainly at each of the side jaw area of the face to lift up the fatty chubby sides to achieve the V shape slimmer face. Now after 6 months my face was much tighter and the V face effect is even better now.
After the 2nd time threadlift, the results are even better. I really love the effect of threadlift and that since the threads dissolves which your body will get rid of it naturally, there will not be any side effects. There little or no downtime at all because no visible bruise or swelling if the doctor skill is good. The PDO thread lift gently lifts and repositions tissues that have fallen into the hands of gravity, resulting in a more youthful looking appearance.
This time round I had threads done along the sides of my full face to pull it back, across my hollow cheeks to make it appear fuller now, while any sagginess of my skin is lifted and any wrinkles are all eased. IT’S GREAT!!!
