How does a Face Thread Lift work?

A thread lift, also known as face-lifting, is a minimally invasive aesthetic surgery. The way it works involves specifically designed multi-directional barbs evenly shared along the threads to uplift sagging tissues gently to suspend them through a special technique that allows the surgeon to realize a relaxed, fresh and yet natural appearance. Take for example that the thread is like steel and concrete, that lay a good foundation in building a house. The threads will support the drooping skin and restore natural contours of the face with a strong force under the skin. The thread dissolves after several months, but before then, they produce fibrosis which creates a new support scaffolding of collagen for the skin. A thread lift is used for the following improvements in the aging, sagging face and neck.

  • Face Lift / Neck Lift

  • Brow lifting

  • Correction of Marionette lines

  • Jowl correction

  • Reposition of sagging cheeks

  • Reduction of lip lines & lip shaping

  • Adjustment of facial and asymmetric brows
