Thread Lift (Suspension sutures)
Thread Lift is a non-surgical procedure to achieve a “lift effect” on the face and neck. We indicate it to patients who look for a noticeable facial rejuvenation, yet avoiding going under the knife. The threads are colorless non-absorbable polypropylene fibers, with barbes that anchor to the tissues to suspend them in a higher position.
Polypropylene threads with barbes.
Local anesthesia is used. A light sedative can be provided too, to bring greater comfort to the patient. The procedure is performed completely on ambulatory basis and there are no contraindications known.
We frequently associate Threadlift to other non-surgical techniques such as Botox ®, facial fillers, microdermabrasion or IPL / laser, to obtain a superior aesthetic result. It is possible as well to use these suspension threads to complement a facelift surgery, necklift surgery, mini-lift, eyelids surgery; for an even greater rejuvenation effect.
