How does it work?
The thread-lift procedure involves very fine surgical sutures being inserted in to the soft tissue of the face to lift and support sagging areas. Thin needles are used to apply thin skin-friendly, absorbent threads to a specific layer of the skin. There is an immediate firming effect as the threads support the sagging tissues. Besides the intervention initiates tissue regeneration process, stimulates collagen production, microcirculation, and other beneficial processes. This results a long-lasting skin firming effect, since the newly produced connective tissues continue to exist after the threads have been absorbed. The effect of the treatment lasts 1.5-2 years. In order to enhance the rejuvenating effect, thread lifting can be repeated as needed after at least 6 months. With further treatments, even fewer thread will be enough to achieve further spectacular skin rejuvenation.
