A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure which helps in lifting sagging skin for a younger and revitalised look.
Thread lift is also known as lunchtime facelift or weekend lift as it takes very little time to conduct the procedure.
How does thread lift work?
There are different types of threadsThreads with barbs. (some barbed threads are absorbable and some are non absorbable)
Barbed non sutured monofilament polypropylene threads (Polypropylene sutures were modified by designing many dents along their lengths. These threads hold tissue firmly because of the sharp edges to the dents) and allows to relieve facial soft tissue ptosis when it is light or moderate. With this method is possible to lift different areas of the three thirds of the face. Barbed polypropylene threads are inserted through the fat tissue with only a long and thin needle as a guide.
