Skin Tightening / Lifting
Saggy skin and droopy skin is an inevitable part of the aging process. If we are only able to freeze time, skin will never sag nor droop. But alas, this is not the case! Our skin gets looser and less elastic with the years and it is better to keep the skin tight and firm early on than to wait until it is far too late, such that even surgery facelift will not be able to restore your skin to what it was years ago.
Skin tightening is a multi-faceted problem and therefore, its solutions are seldom limited to only a single treatment alone. You may achieve some improvement with only one mode of treatment, but if you are a perfectionist (like us), you will find that there is still something lacking even after one very good skin tightening or lifting treatment.
The truth is, a combination of suitable treatments are often ideal for achieving the best skin tightening or lifting results - unless you have started your prevention really young.

Thread Lift (Non-Surgical & Dissolvable) – Korea Ultra V Thread Lift
There are many types of threads used in Korea Ultra V Thread Lift, mainly cog threads and mono threads, but they are all made using polydioxanone (PDO), which is a dissolvable suture material commonly used in other surgical treatments. This material is very safe for use as threadlift as it has a long history of being widely used safely in many surgical and medical indications and, as a material, has hardly ever caused any side effect.
Cog threads are modified for use in threadlift by creating tiny barbs along the threads that act as cogs to grasp, lift and suspend a relaxed facial area. The barbs open like an umbrella to form a support structure that lifts the sagging tissue. These barbs under the skin also tend to gather tissues to fill out and lift the cheeks and sagging skin. Barbs on the thread grab hold of skin tissue. This creates tension in the thread, and the tension lifts the skin tissue. Collagen formation also occurs around the threads and their cogs or barbs, producing an increasing effect over time. This part of the treatment is used for lifting of saggy or droopy skin.
Mono threads are short, simple, smooth threads without barbs or cones that are placed multiply into the face in a mesh-like fashion for an overall skin tightening result. They work very well to reduce wrinkled skin by creating an overall skin tightening that comes after collagen starts forming around the threads 1 month after the treatment procedure. They complement the process of skin lifting that cog threads can give. Used on their own, they tighten the skin without significant lifting, therefore they are often used in combination with cog threads for a overall improvement in face rejuvenation and youth restoration.
Korea Ultra V Thread Lift SGD 1200 – 2200
It is a Myth that the dissolvable Thread Lift procedures on the face will change the original facial features of your face. The Reality is that as a minimally invasive procedure, Korea Ultra V Thread Lift essentially repositions facial soft tissues to their original location.*
Which areas can you treat with Threadlift?
You can use threadlift to lift and tighten the following areas of loose skin:
Nasolabial folds, laugh lines
Jowls, marionette lines
Droopy eyelids, brow lift
Neck lines, even turkey neck
Nose augmentation, including nose tip
Post partum abdominal loose skin
How long does non-surgical Threadlift last?
Non-surgical threadlift can last for approximately 1 to 1.5 years, depending on your age, lifestyle, and facial movement patterns. As more collagen is produced over time, the results will also gradually become better and peak at approximately 6-9 months after the procedure. An advantage of the dissolving threads is that additional threads can be inserted at a later date if further lift procedures are required.
Radiofrequency Treatment with Thermage®
At Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics & Surgery, we provide radiofrequency skin tightening treatment using Thermage®.
Radiofrequency treatment is a non-invasive medical procedure which can bring about the following benefits:
(a) Skin Tightening (of the face and abdomen);
(b) Reduction of saggy skin on the face & neck;
(c) Facial Contouring for a slimmer, V-line face.
Radiofrequency treatment heats up the dermis of the skin and initiates skin contraction and tightening. This promotes lifting of the face, cheeks and brows without surgery or downtime. Thermage® is the single radiofrequency treatment that penetrates deepest into the skin for maximal effect of skin tightening.
In addition, the radiofrequency treatment penetrates deep into the subcutaneous fat. This enables removal of modest cellulite as well as some body contouring.
The procedure takes less than an hour and is generally safe and gentle. You may return to your daily routine without sequelae or even any indication that you had undergone radiofrequency treatment.

Ulthera® (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
Ultrasound therapy, or Ultherapy® is a breakthrough procedure utilising High Intensity Focused Ultrasound for non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic improvement of the skin. The ultrasound energy produced by the world-renowned Ultherapy® system penetrates and works deep below the skin surface without harming the outer layer of skin. The end result is dramatic and long-lasting benefits of facial firming, skin tightening and lifting.
Ulthera’s® ultrasound energy will give you improvement around the eyes include lifting of the brow line to reduce droopiness on the eyelids, smoothing of crow’s feet, and a more open, refreshed look to the eyes in general.*
Sagging skin on the cheeks can also be tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve folds from the nose to mouth, folds from the mouth to jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. Often, a more defined jaw line (resulting in a V-Face shape) and overall improvement in skin texture and evenness of colour are known additional benefits.

There are many names for this treatment – you may have heard of micro btx or meso btx or btx dermal lift etc. Essentially, it gives a mini facelift immediately without the downtime and pain of threadlifts or skin tightening machines.
This technique has been improved over the years and advanced to a stage where btx alone may be used to achieve face lifting and skin tightening effect.
It is a great adjunct when combined with other skin tightening procedures such as Thermage, Ulthera and/or Threadlift, or it may even be used on its own for a quick fix before a big event.
Minute injections of btx are placed at skin level all over the face to cause skin contraction and tightening.* The effect is immediately visible and also improves over 1 month.* The only drawback is that it does not last very long, typically only a couple of months for one treatment. However, a touch up treatment session at 2-4weeks can help anchor the effects further so that it may last up to 6 months thereafter.* You may use it to lift slightly saggy cheeks and reduce a mild double chin too.
This treatment can be used to:
Improve droopy eyes,
Lift the brow,
Reduce forehead lines naturally,
Reduce neck lines,
Create definition for the jawline,
Lift the jowls and laugh lines, and
Reduce double chin,
Slim the face from excess saggy skin – which is our all time favourite.
Multiple tiny wheals may be seen on the skin surface for 1-2 hours on the day of treatment only. Thereafter, there is almost no sign of a procedure done once the btx has been absorbed after 4 hours.
Slight small bruising and needlemarks may be seen but certainly may be concealed with makeup – there is no downtime at all.
A combination of all the 3 treatments above can give great result of skin tightening, lifting, jawline definition – reversing your age by 5 to 10 years.
There is an ultimate way of combining the treatments above to achieve more dramatic results, which potentially spares the need for more drastic face-saving measures. Heat stimulation by Thermage or Ultherapy by Ulthera® stimulates more collageneogenesis around the threads that have been placed under the skin by heating them up for even more collagen and elastin production. The end result is a greater synergistic skin lifting and tightening effect, as compared with each procedure alone.
