Mini facial threadlifts to sculpt, lift and beautify face with little downtime and discomfort. Designed for the newbie who desires only a quick perk, or for those who wish to give their existing results a boost. A few regular sessions can have cumulative benefits, giving progressive lift and rejuvenation to the facial tone and shape.
WHAT IS IT?
V-Petit is a small threadlift procedure using 100% bio-absorbable PDO threads. The cornerstone of this treatment is its low downtime and low discomfort. Normal facial threadlifts may use up to 16 threads per session, but in V-petit, only up to 4 threads are placed in each session.
WHO IS IT FOR?
V-Petit is an intelligent choice for those who cannot afford downtime yet desires a quick lift of the skin. It is also a good option for those who have done facial threadlift before and wishes to prolong or boost their existing results. Even one session can have good anti-aging benefits as these threads dissolve to stimulate a vector of collagen to add to the elasticity of the skin. When done regularly, it produces cumulative lifting and rejuvenative effects for a more intense result.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
Our doctors will assess your face and advise on the most ideal area to insert the threads. In more sagging faces, they may chart a plan to address multiple areas over 3 sessions. The procedure is quick and takes less than 40min. A small injection of local anaesthetic will numb the insertion point of the threads. This may feel like a slight prick. Threads are inserted by our highly trained and fully accredited doctors; patients usually don’t feel anything during this part of the procedure. Some antibiotic cream is applied and patients can return to work.
WHAT TYPE OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
You can expect to see a lift at a targeted area chosen by you and your doctor. This lift may ‘drop’ slightly (5-10%) over the next week as a result of gravity and facial movements. You can minimize this small drop by adopting some of the advice given in our post-treatment protocol and wearing our Lift Me Up Band, specially designed to boost results of our thread lifts. The resulting lift will then be maintained over months to years, depending on your lifestyle.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
The beauty of V-Petit is the low downtime. As the number of threads are specific and minimal, there is a much lower chance of bruising and pin prick marks. Some patients experience no downtime while others have 1-2 small pinprick marks which can be easily covered with makeup. There is also little discomfort after the procedure, and patients can return to work and return to normal activities immediately after.
IS THERE ANY PAIN?
Most patients do not experience any discomfort after the procedure.
DO I HAVE TO REPEAT THIS AGAIN?
If your goal is to interrupt your aging process, then you can do this as a single treatment on an ad hoc basis. If your goal is to address multiple areas of sagging and to achieve an optimal lift, it is recommended that you repeat this procedure monthly for 3 sessions at least.
