As you age, your skin loses its strength and elasticity leading to sagging and wrinkles. You might start noticing heavy nasolabial folds, sunken cheeks, deepended smile lines.
Collagen and elastin are the vital proteins that can help keep your skin firm and youthful.
One of the more popular options to combat this issue is a thread lift. It is a minimally invasive procedure done under local anaesthesia where absorbable suture (thread) is inserted at the area of concern for optimum lifting effect. The threads are textured filaments that grab the underside of your skin to hold it in a new position. These threads instantly give your face a lifted look.
The second thing the threads do is stimulate your natural healing response. Your body will treat the threads like an injury and make more collagen where the threads are.
Thread lift has gained its popularity due to its safety, non surgical method that requires minimal to no downtime and longer lasting results.
