A thread lift restores the tension of sagging skin tissues in the face and neck, resulting in a lift-like effect with no scars. This procedure is conducted under local anesthesia at the medical office and yields results limited by time. It requires a certain level of surgical skill and experience to achieve desired results. A variety of techniques can be used to lift eyebrows, cheekbones, lower cheeks or neck depending on the patient’s needs.
The results are often complemented by another treatment performed at the medical office like hyaluronic acid or botox injections, or even a light chemical peel. Mild swelling and bruises can appear and last between three and six days.
