Thread Lifts

Benefits and Process

Thread Lifts shapes your face and restores skin by repositioning tissue and regenerating collagen. This innovative solution tightens your face and redefines your jawline. Obtain that youthful-looking face with this highly effective Thread Lift.

Minimally invasive with a fast recovery period, this treatment delivers natural-looking, long-lasting effects to reverse the signs of aging. A well-known pharmaceutical polymer that has biocompatibility and biodegradability, Poly L-lactic Acid (PLLA) is one of the main elements of our Thread Lifts.

The small cones and sutures lift your face by using traction and fixation points to build up collagen for younger, smoother skin. The temporary sutures are safely biodegradable. You will start seeing the reshaping results of Thread Lifts immediately, while the skin regeneration shows gradually over the next few months.
