The GoldThread™ Lift USA Procedure is a skin rejuvenation technique which has been developed by United States and European surgeons. The GoldThread™ Lift USA Procedure reduces wrinkles improving skin appearance. Gold rejuvenation techniques have been used in France and Asia since the 1960s. These early procedures involved the implantation of short 0.5mm diameter gold implants in the skin. The technique known as the European Gold Filaments technique had moderate success and required a large needle for implantation. These procedures were highly invasive with longer and more unattractive recovery.

The GoldThread™ Lift USA Procedure uses 24K Gold ThreadTM 5-0 (1 Metric) size thread which is made of 99.99% pure gold. The thread is only 0.1mm in diameter. Processing and testing developed by Gold Thread LLC assures that 24K Gold Thread™ gold 5-0 thread has the physical properties needed to conform to skin contours and skin color.

The GoldThread™ Lift USA Procedure is less invasive then the European Gold Filaments technique. The GoldThread™ Lift USA Procedure was developed by Dr. Pawel Koziczynski and uses a minimally invasive procedure which results in no blood loss, no scars, and minimal use of anesthesia.

Mechanism of Gold Thread

Gold Thread is a special medical device manufactured with full compliance with relevant regulations of Food & Drugs Administration (FDA) of USA (21 CFR 820 & 21 CFR 812). Clinical observation revealed that implantation of Gold Thread™ will stimulate the synthesis of collagen, elastin and other skin matrices which will ultimately cover the net formed with Gold Thread™. Such increment of skin matrices will firm up the implanted body part, contributing to a much younger and rejuvenating outlook. Gold Thread™ will also stimulate angiogenesis beneath the skin, which contributed to increase supply of blood and nutrients to the implanted body part. Natural antiseptic properties of gold will also reduce inflammation of these areas.

The above mentioned biochemical reactions will begin immediately after Gold Thread™ Implantation. From our clinical observation, we noticed that skin complexion improved 2 weeks after implantation and facial wrinkle lighten 3 months after implantation. The best results were achieved 6-12 months past implantation.

Depending on individual’s immunity, the implanted Gold Thread™ will remain in the body of the patient, exerting its efficacious biochemical effects for 8-12 years (smoking, drinking and other unhealthy living habits will shorten the period of efficacies of Gold Thread™). Repetition of Gold Thread™ implantation every 5-8 years will have boosting effects on skin rejuvenations.

The Koziczynski’s Method

Gold Thread™ Implantation is an improved version of European’s Gold Filaments/Thread technique, with much lesser invasiveness and higher efficacies. Currently, the latest Gold Thread™ Implantation developed by Dr. Pawel Koziczynsky in year 2000, is performed with gold thread and needle 10 times smaller than those used in European technique, gives rise to an ultra minimal invasive procedure which is painless, no bleeding, no scars and does not require any kind of anesthesia, with the ability to rejuvenate your skin as much as 5-8 years, at the duration of 8-15 years! Patient can resume normal lifestyle immediately after Gold Thread™ Implantation procedure.

Gold Thread™ Implantation will rejuvenate you with gold thread which is made of 99.99% pure gold at the diameter of 0.1mm, specifically manufactured for implantation purposes with full compliances to the FDA specifications.

Standard skin preparation, draping, and sterile technique should be followed to avoid infection. Planning for each area to be treated is done by drawing a layout of the grid to be followed within the surgical procedure.

The Gold Thread™ 24K Gold Thread 5-0 is implanted perpendicular to the lines of depression of the face and the neck. The procedure is nearly painless and is usually done without local anesthesia; however, anesthesia may be used at the surgeon or patient preference. The thread is placed in the Papillary Dermis to achieve maximum effect and to avoid major blood vessels and nerves.
