What is Gold Thread™ Lift USA?

Gold Thread™ Lift USA uses ultra-purified, 99.99% pure 24K Gold Thread™ gold 5-0 (1 Metric), manufactured with full compliances to the relevant regulations of US’s Food & Drugs Administration (FDA).

Gold Thread™ is designed to firm up sagging skin in the cheek and jaw line by threading a web of gold into your skin and underlying soft tissues. Gold Thread™ is used to reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the patient’s face, resulting in a more youthful, balanced look.

How does Gold Thread™ Lift USA work?

During the procedure, micro-fine surgical Gold Thread™ is implanted into the papillary dermis of skin. The implantation of Gold Thread™ will stimulate the synthesis of collagen, elastin and other skin matrices which will ultimately cover the web formed by Gold Thread™. As blood circulation intensifies in the surrounding tissue, an increased supply of oxygen and nutrients flows to the treated area. The skin begins to tighten and elasticity is restored, making the face more youthful.

Are Gold Thread Lift USA only for the face?

No. While the Gold Thread™ Lift USA can be performed on the cheeks, forehead, around eyes, around mouth and neck (upper neck & lower neck), other body parts that can be successfully treated include the cleavage, arms, hands, stomach and thighs as well as area affected by cell.

Is a Gold Thread Lift USA right for me?

The best candidates are young to old patients who are looking to firm up their skin. At any age, Gold Thread™ is “working” to rejuvenate the skin and has the effect of reducing expression lines, wrinkles and nasolabial folds.

In the eyes of others, patients with Gold Thread™ do not age and is most successful on a person that displays minimal signs of aging. Gold Thread™ is a long-term alternative to Botox and Fillers. Patients who have already had a full surgical facelift can improve the skin’s firmness and youthful quality with an additional Gold Thread™ Lift USA.
