What is a Threadlifting?
Threadlifting is a non-surgical method of achieving a younger looking face and neck by implanting very fine threads of polydioxanone, which have small barbs all along their length, in the subcutaneous layer of the skin. When pulled, the threads plump the skin and produce a smoother look. Polydioxanone is a bio-degradable substance used in sutures, so the effect will only be temporary.
Is Threadlifting safe?
As the threads are manufactured using the same material that is used in sutures, they are a very safe, bio-degradable alternative to invasive face-lift surgery.
How does a Threadlifting work?
The threads are placed under the skin using thin needles. Once in place, the threads are pulled and the skin is tightened and plumped, by barbs, which embed themselves into the subcutaneous layer of your skin. The threads initiate an inflammatory response, which promotes collagen manufacture in the treated areas. This process also improves blood flow to the skin. The result is facial skin that looks younger and fresher.
