The history of Gold Thread Lift USA for aesthetics can be traced back to the time of ancient Egypt, with the discoveries of pieces of gold in the ancient Egyptian mummies.

Pieces of gold were used in the form of gold leaf eyes and tongues; Gold leaf eyes were being placed over the eye-sockets and gold leaf tongues within the mouths of mummies as symbol to avert evil from the entrance into the body and to help magically heal the world. Many mummies of ancient Egyptian queens had ‘gold leaf’ applied to face, chest and nails. Occasionally, the mummies with shrunken cheeks were packed with ‘gold leaf’ resulted the skin on the face grew tighter and to achieve eternal youth, this can be found on the ancient Egyptian literature. This has laid the foundation for the modern medical implantation of gold thread aesthetics.

The Gold Thread is implanted under the skin as a unique box patterns, hence is able to achieve low bleeding, slight pain implantation. Due to the fine diameter of the Gold Thread™, Koziczynski’s Technique can achieve biochemical skin rejuvenation (lightening of fine lines & wrinkles) and is very helpful to sagging skin. This is indeed a great breakthrough in Gold Thread Skin Rejuvenation!!

Year 1966

A French surgeon, Dr Caux implanted Gold Thread of ultra-high purity ( 99.99%) into human faces to trigger positive proliferative immune responses, characterized as the localized increase of skin matrices to encapsulate the implanter Gold Thread, hence achieving reduction in facial fine lines and wrinkles. But this technique is only feasible in small area rejuvenation due to technical constrains

Year 1992

Dr D. Orrenes coiled the fine Gold Thread with vicryl to strengthen it, and implant it under the skin with the help of surgical needles (1mm in diameter, as gold thread leader). This technique improved the rejuvenation area of Gold Thread tremendously. However, implanting with 1 mm surgical needles make the procedure fairly invasive, requiring local anesthesia & constant control of bleeding throughout the implantation. Due to the invasiveness, the convalescent period of the treatment is several weeks to months, with many subject to allergy due to vicryl. Despite such complications, this product & procedure is approved by CE and generally known as ‘European Technique’ or ‘Korean’s Technique’ , which gains popularity among European & some Asian countries.

Year 2000

“The Koziczynski’s Method“ – Invented by Dr Pawel W. Koziczynski, where Gold Thread Implantation is an improved version of European’s Gold Filaments/Thread technique, with much lesser invasiveness and higher efficacies, This technique 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 , 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. Repetition of Gold Thread Lift USA implantation every 5-8 years will have boosting effects on skin rejuvenations.

Year 2005

Koziczynski’s Method of Gold Thread Rejuvenation and Lifting Techniques had been improvised, with Gold Thread which is made of 99.99% pure gold at the diameter of 0.1mm and its implantation technique, which not only reduce fine lines & wrinkles but also lift the sagging skin and improve the skin complexion.
