If you are worried about sagging and are wondering about thread lift or therma cool , if you want a higher lift-up effect, thread lift that lifts loose skin with thread is suitable.
Thermacool has the effect of tightening the skin by heat shrinkage by irradiating the deep layers of the skin with high frequencies without damaging the surface of the skin.
If you want to make the nasolabial folds and marionette lines that look deep due to slack less noticeable, thread lifts with a high lift-up effect are suitable, tighten the slack pores on the cheeks, and tighten the chubby face with a little more fat to make a small face. If you want to show it to, therma cool is suitable.
By knowing the difference in the mechanism and effect of the action of Thread Lift and Thermacool, you can choose the treatment that will lead to more effective improvement of your skin troubles.
Table of contents
Human skin has a three-layer structure of epidermis layer, dermis layer, and subcutaneous tissue (fat) from the outside. About 70% of the dermis layer is "collagen", which is a strong fibrous protein, and "hyaluronic acid", which is a jelly-like substance, fills the space between them while holding water. In addition, elastic fibrous protein called "elastin" binds collagen together, giving the skin firmness and elasticity.
When collagen and elastin in the dermis layer deteriorate and decrease due to external stimuli such as aging and ultraviolet rays, and the skin loses its elasticity and elasticity, the skin becomes slack against gravity . The thread lift physically lifts the loose skin due to gravity with a thread, so you can expect a lift-up effect that is easy to understand.
Thermacool is a treatment that irradiates the dermis layer of the skin and the subcutaneous tissue, which is mainly the fat layer, with high-frequency energy to tighten proteins such as collagen fibers by heat contraction and reduce excess fat. Since it can be expected to reduce the surface area of the skin and reduce the volume to mitigate the effects of gravity, Thermacool helps to improve the opening of pores due to slight sagging and prevent sagging .
In addition, when high-frequency energy is applied with Thermacool, human wound healing action works to heal damage caused by heat damage and collagen production is promoted, which increases the firmness and elasticity of the skin and leads to improvement of skin quality. ..
The tightening effect of Thermacool is a mild change in appearance compared to the pulling effect of the thread lift . Depending on the condition of the skin of the person receiving the treatment and the desire to change it, the doctor may diagnose that the Thermacool is not effective, so it may be better to consider a thread lift.

Since the approach and action for sagging are different between Thread Lift and Therma Cool, you can expect the effect of improving sagging with Thread Lift and preventing the progression of sagging due to aging by using Therma Cool together .
Lifting loose skin with a thread lift does not stop the progress of skin aging. Since Thermacool has a mild downtime, repeated treatments can be used for long-term maintenance to tighten the entire skin and maintain firmness and elasticity.
Since sagging is a symptom caused by deterioration of the quality of the skin tissue, which makes it impossible to maintain the morphology against external forces such as gravity and facial expressions , Thermacool, which improves the quality of the skin tissue, brings out the effect of thread lift better and It helps to maintain the therapeutic effect .
Thread lift is a treatment that puts a thread under the skin and pulls up the slack on the face and neck .
Incision surgery using a scalpel is said to be the most effective for lift-up, but downtime such as swelling and swelling tends to be prolonged, so downtime is shortened by reducing damage to the body. The thread lift was devised.
Thread lift is a treatment that inserts a thread under the skin with a needle to pull up the slack, and can be expected to have the effect of making the nasolabial fold and marionette line created by the slack inconspicuous . It also improves the Golgo line under the eyes, chin sagging, neck sagging and wrinkles.
There are many types of thread lifts, and there are two types of thread materials, one that melts in the body and the other that does not melt. The duration of the effect is about 1 to 2 years for meltable threads and about 4 to 5 years for insoluble threads. It is said that.
Some threads have thorn-shaped protrusions called cogs and barbs, and conical protrusions called bio-cones, and the pulling force differs depending on the shape and number of protrusions.
As for the shape of the protrusion, a cone-shaped protrusion called a biocone like "Silhouette Soft" can be supported so that it can be firmly caught in the subcutaneous tissue 360 degrees around the thread and scooped up . It is said that the force to pull up is stronger than the protrusion .
In addition, there are two types of thread lifts, one that fixes the thread to the periosteum of the temporal region and the other that does not, and the fixed type has a stronger lifting effect . However, the fixed type tends to have a long downtime such as twitching and temporal pain.
Among the thread lifts, "Shopping Thread" has a small lift-up effect, but it has the effect of improving skin quality like Thermacool.
The shopping thread inserts a special ultra-fine needle that is thinner than the hair and has a short type absorbent thread set under the skin, and at the same time the needle is pulled out, only the thread is left under the skin. It is said that the stimulation of the inserted thread activates the subcutaneous tissue to produce collagen and elastin, leading to firm and elastic skin quality.
There are many types of thread lifts, and their characteristics differ depending on the elasticity and length of the thread, the shape and number of protrusions, etc., and the pulling force also changes. There is also.
The thread lift treatment time is about 1 hour, depending on the site and the number of threads .
It is said that you will feel almost no pain during the procedure because it is done after the injection of local anesthesia is given first, but there are individual differences in how you feel the pain. There are some medical institutions where you can receive treatment while sleeping under intravenous anesthesia, but please check with each institution as it may cost extra.
After the thread lift, you may feel swelling, swelling, dull pain, and a feeling of tightness or discomfort when you open your mouth wide, but it will subside in about 2 to 3 days . Do not open your mouth too wide for about a month until the thread is settled.
Depending on the type of thread lift, the amount of money varies from about 25,000 yen to 100,000 yen per thread. The number of threads to use depends on the condition of the slack and the part you want to pull up, but if you want to improve the slack on the cheeks, it is common to insert about 3 to 4 threads on one cheek. If you put it on both cheeks, the market price is about 150,000 to 600,000 yen .
Thermacool is a treatment that irradiates the dermis layer of the skin and the subcutaneous tissue, which is mainly the fat layer underneath, with high frequency waves, which are one of the electromagnetic waves, and tightens proteins such as collagen fibers and excess fat by heat contraction . By activating the production of collagen, it can be expected to have the effect of restoring firmness and elasticity and improving skin quality. The heat is generated deep inside the skin, so the tissues on the surface of the skin are not damaged.
Thermacool has two effects: a tightening effect that has an immediate effect after the treatment and a skin-beautifying effect that gradually occurs about a month later . It is said that the effect of Thermacool lasts for about half a year, so it is recommended to continue the treatment once or twice a year as maintenance to prevent sagging and improve skin quality.
Irradiation with high frequency with Thermacool causes the collagen fibers in the dermis layer and the fat in the subcutaneous tissue to contract instantly, so the skin tightening effect appears immediately after the procedure . Similar to the principle of shrinking when meat is heated during cooking, collagen, which is a protein, also shrinks when heat is applied with Thermacool.
Since the subcutaneous fat in the subcutaneous tissue is also contracted , the volume of excess fat can be reduced to tighten the entire face and reduce the face effect .
In addition to the face, Thermacool also improves the tightening of slack in the abdomen, upper arms, thighs, hip line, and bust, improves cellulite , stretch marks after diet and childbirth, and slack in the skin after liposuction . ..
Heat shock protein, which is a type of protein that repairs damaged cells, increases due to heat stimulation, which causes wound healing and promotes collagen production, which increases the firmness and elasticity of the skin and improves the quality of the skin. Leads to improvement .
It is said that fine wrinkles and pores become less noticeable, and the sebaceous glands in the pores contract, which improves oily skin and acne.
During the Thermacool procedure, there is a feeling of heat and a stinging pain with a needle, but it is said to be pain that can be tolerated without anesthesia . Compared to the conventional Thermacool (TC, NXT, CPT), the latest model, Thermacool FLX, has an improved vibrator that reduces pain, so pain is reduced.
Thermacool is characterized by short downtime because it does not damage the surface of the skin . Makeup, bathing, and exercise can be done from the day of the event.
Thermacool costs more as the number of shots increases. In the case of the entire face treatment, the Thermacool CPT usually costs about 100,000 to 200,000 yen for 400 shots . In the case of Thermacool FLX, 300 shots cost around 200,000-400,000 yen , and in the case of Thermacool Eye, 225 shots cost around 100,000 yen .
Since the thread lift has the effect of increasing the sagging of the skin, it can be expected to have the effect of making the nasolabial folds and marionette lines due to the sagging less noticeable . Thermacool, on the other hand, has the effect of tightening the skin and is said to be a good first approach to early aging, such as improving the opening of pores due to fine wrinkles and sagging cheeks .
In addition, you can expect the effect of delaying the progress of slack by using Thermacool regularly while increasing the slack with a thread lift. Thermacour, which improves the quality of skin tissue, helps maintain the lifting effect of the thread lift.
Since the degree of sagging progresses from person to person, it is important to receive treatment that suits your skin condition and wishes. In order to obtain a better effect, please receive counseling at a medical institution with abundant experience in sagging treatment, and consult with your concerns and concerns.
A doctor who is familiar with sagging treatment from various approaches can propose more effective treatment considering the degree of sagging of each person and the desired site .
