Thread lifts claim to tighten facial skin by inserting medical-grade thread material into the face and then “pulling” the skin up by tightening the thread. Once the barbed thread is inserted, the body’s healing response is triggered. Even though you’re not injured by the threads under your skin, your body detects the suture material and stimulates collagen production in the affected area. Collagen can fill the gaps in the sagging skin and restore a more youthful elasticity to your face. Your forehead, jowls, under-eye area, eyebrow and cheeks are all parts of your face that can be considered for a thread lift. Results from a thread lift aren’t meant to be permanent. Successful effects typically last from 1 to 3 years.
You can choose to target just one area or several at once.
