List of Collagen Benefits for Skin
Collagen support “growth factors” that significantly affects our skin condition. As we age, the production of collagen will gradually decrease in our body. The collagen loss will lead to skin thinness by about age 70. Next, the loss of volume and strength significantly create wrinkles and excessive skin.
So skin collagen is relatively important in
- wound healing
- skin firming and volumize.
- reduce looseness
- reduce wrinkles and excessive skin
Collagen Thread Treatment
Queen’s Avenue Clinic provides collagen thread treatment for facial skin laxity, jowls and drooping cheeks. It is a new type of procedure to fill in the gap between non-invasive facial rejuvenation and firming surgery.
So how does it help in firming our face?
Collagen thread treatment is a thread insertion procedure to encourage in-vitro collagen growth. Hence, it firms up the skin. Doctors will stitch up a portion of the loose skin with thread lift, instead of removing it surgically. Besides that, this treatment will provoke the body’s healing response and collagen stimulation.
The collagen growth is usually slow in progression. However, the effect lasts longer and more natural-looking. Patients will notice a gradual improvement in their skin tone and firmness of the face. While the threads are in place, the healing body response will be continuously activated.

The most significant advantage of receiving a collagen thread treatment is the less-invasive nature of the procedure. Hence lesser recovery time needed. They can usually resume regular daily routine immediately after undergoing the treatment done.
TYPES OF COLLAGEN TREATMENT
PDO – Introduction
PDO Thread Lift promotes the collagen benefits for the skin. It is a treatment where the thread is introduced into the desired area and encourage the growth of collagen under the skin. The collagen thread can be used to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue. Once introduced, it can produce 3 effects in the skin:
- Instant Skin Lifting through mechanical effects;
- Cellular Renewal through collagen stimulation, and improve skin texture, fine lines and elasticity;
- Skin Tightening by contracting fat tissue.
PDO – How is PDO Thread Lift Done?
The doctor will insert PDO threads into the skin with the use of a housing needle called “cannula”. Cannulas are blunt. During insertion into the skin, with the help of a numbing agent, the procedure will cause only minimal or no pain.
PDO thread lift is minimally invasive. After numbing and infusion of local anaesthesia, the PDO threads added via sharp or blunt tip needles. Once the threads inserted to the skin, it anchors and lifts the surface upwards. The excess threads are then cut off. Depends on the treated areas, the thread insertion procedure will take around 15-30 minutes.
PDO – Is PDO Thread Lift Safe?
Yes, of course, it is a safe treatment. PDO Thread Lift is non-surgery and via the needle, it minimises many of the side effects associated with thread lifting procedures, such as infection and thread breakage.
PDO – Collagen Benefits for Skin in these Areas:-
- Under-eye area
- Apple cheeks
- Smile lines
- Lines around mouth
For your information, PDO thread lift is very versatile, allowing practically all areas of the face to be treated. With the effects of collagen thread lifting, the skin will grow its own collagen and slow down the skin ageing problem.

There Are Now Korean PLLA and PCL Threads. Are They Better?
The barbs on a PDO Thread Lift are tiny, almost invisible to the naked eye. PDO, PLLA, and PCL are all names of different types of materials.
The main difference is in longevity, stiffness and tensile strength:
- Polydioxanone (PDO) dissolves after 6-9 months
- Poly L Lactic Acid (PLLA) breaks down after 12-18 months
- Polycaprolactone (PCL) liquefy after 24- 36 months
While PLLA and PCL last longer than PDO threads. The longevity itself could be a double-edged sword. Patients often report that Korean PLLA threads feel harder in the skin, with more tightness due to its is owing to its less flexible. Theoretically, PLLA threads are a longer-lasting alternative to PDO threads.
