Thread Lift is a simple procedure that offers quick results, easy recovery and a subtle face lift without surgery. It is a minimally invasive face-lifting procedure that involves the placement of special nylon threads in a loop fashion and then pulling them upwards. The threads are placed with a needle through a small incision in the hairline and then tensioned according to the degree of suspension required. Threads can easily be removed, added or changed. There is little downtime but these last only for 1-2 years and need to be repeated at that time. There is also no skin tightening and these procedures are not suitable for people with loose skin. The best candidates are men and women in their forties with little skin laxity.
