Dr Ko Beauty Transformation: PDO Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission

As my beauty journey continues for non abrasive treatment, I started again with Dr Ko Clinic and I did Fractional Co2 Laser with Subcission. I continue this journey also with Dr Ko of another treatment of PDO Threadlift, Silicio and Subcission.

All these treatments may sound scary, let me just enlighten you with the definitions. Subcission is an injection where I have explained in previous post.

PDO Threadlift

PDO thread lift is one of the most safe and effective methods to do so, non-surgically. This procedure is most commonly done for the face, while it is also extremely effective in breast and neck lifting and firming, as well as arms, thighs, tummy, calves and buttock tightening and elevation.


Silicio is an organic silicon which is water soluble. It increases the synthesis of collagen and elastic fibres, therefore helps with regeneration of epidermis and dermic cells.

About a month ago, I have undergone this treatment and my previous doctor has been transferred. My current doctor would be Dr Lee Yan Han. Before starting on the treatment, numbing cream was applied for 40 minutes. Local anesthetic was injected on the middle of both of my cheeks. I definitely could feel the immediate swell where the medication goes under my skin and you could witness it through the series of my photos in this post.

First procedure would be PDO threadlift. Honestly speaking, I could not feel a single thing not even for the threadlift to go under my skin at all. The local anesthetic definitely did it’s job. Dr Lee did show me  those the unopened sterile pack of needles before  proceeding to the procedure. How it works is where Dr Lee injects onto my skin and gently remove it. There is a white tab over the needle that puts a stop for the thread while removing the needle for it to stay under the skin.

Dr Lee was very attentive to keep checking with me from time to time if I’m doing good. My face was so numb that I could not feel my nose, I was indeed worrying if I am breathing where I chose to breathe from my mouth in the next procedure. Threadlift could also be use to raise nose bridge which I get to know on the day itself which I am pretty much interested with it.

Here is the subcission where Dr Lee is injecting directly to my depressed scars most of the time. Subcission helps to assist to reduce the depth of the scars.

At the very end, I had undergone silicio where Dr Lee reminded this injection could be painful. She kid me not about this because it was quite painful that I kept questioning myself when Dr Lee would stop injecting anymore. The needle is slightly thicker and medication gives a light tingling sensation. It may sound like I had so many injections and I am fine, my face was a little swollen.

Here is a comparison before undergoing this procedures and a month later. I love how the threadlift gives the volume over my face which is something I would normally look for. My skin look much more radiant and rosy than before. As for the scars, they are slightly less visible as to compare but they are not entirely gone yet.

After 2 months, my skin has remained smooth and radiant but seem to loose its plumpness as it can be seen from the sides of my nose.

Unfortunately, I believe one of the injections left me some red mark scars over my cheeks and I have shared this with Dr Lee. She called me immediately the next day to seek for photos and to check on my skin condition severity. Additional cream and medication was sent to me in order to improve my skin. She also shared this may be caused by my skin dryness which I do face it most of the time after my laser. Kudos for your prompt action Dr Lee and team.
