What is HIKO?

HIKO is an elegant technique , founded in Seoul. There are many versions of HIKO, and various threadlift companies have their own version.

How does it work?

Here is the science behind it. Fine threads called polydioxanone (PDO are inserted into the nose to enhance your bridge, body and tip. Fibroblasts are stimulated to produce new collagen, which produces a volumizing and lifting effect. Below are the various sizes of a HIKO thread.

What is the difference between HIKO and nose fillers?

  1. Nose fillers carry the risk of blindness and skin necrosis. They can be used to enhance your nose bridge, tip and body, especially if you have a flat nose. Non surgically, with minimal pain, downtime and bruising. Results are instant. Nose fillers can be used to correct a flat nose bridge, a down pointing nose tip, and a dorsal hump, all common in Asians. However, it cannot be used to make a nose smaller. To do so visually, there are options. In the grand scheme of things, it is important for the nose to harmonise with the rest of your facial features. Keeping things natural, simple and beautiful.
  2. HIKO is akin to a marriage between traditional dermal fillers and surgical implants. Results are more natural than fillers. Compared with fillers, HIKO has better longevity, does not spread out to broaden the nose (which can happen with fillers), and produces a sharper nose tip with higher bridge.
  3. Compared to surgery with implants, it has relatively no downtime, reduced pain, swelling and bruising.

HOW DO V FACE PDO THREADLIFTS WORK?

Via an immediate lifting and progressive tightening.

  1. Support: An immediate lift through repositioning and anchoring soft tissue
  2. Biostimulation: Regenerative action with collagen stimulation for progressive volumisation and natural firming and tightening over 3 to 6 months.

WHAT ARE  V FACE PDO THREADLIFTS| PLLA THREADLIFTS MADE OF?

They are made of 100% absorbable and bio-compatible material, similar to those used in surgery. 2 common materials exist.

  1. PDO Threadlift: Polydioxanone material is commonly used as a surgical suture, and tends to last on average 6 months. These are the basic Korean threads, though differ brands differ in terms of design (monos, barbs, cogs, multi etc).
  2. PLLA : Poly-L-Lactic Acid material are also used as surgical sutures, and have greater longevity than PDO, averaging 12 months. Hence they can potentially stimulate collagen for a longer duration. Once dissolved, the material breaks down into glucose, carbon dioxide and water.
