Among the range of non-invasive treatments to counter the effects of aging and the loss of skin elasticity, threadlifts have their very special place.
What is it?
Threadlifts are literally threads that can be compared to barbed wire. Their rough edges grip the skin and stretch it. They are strategically positioned through a needle hole, creating lines of tension in the desired direction. These threads are now absorbable which avoids complications such as long-term rejection.
They essentially have two properties:
First, they will lift the skin by creating tension on it.
Second, they will induce the synthesis of collagen fibers which will ultimately increase skin firmness.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia and does not require down time.
Threadlifts are used primarily to treat sagging skin on the face and neck.
