A surgical facelift is no longer the only option for re-draping and re-contouring a face. Apart from the use of Botulinum Toxin to relax hyperactive muscles and subsequently treat dynamic wrinkles, as well as dermal fillers for the recuperation of lost volume, thread lifts are another important technique that is gaining in acceptance and efficacy.
Also known as suture lifts or ‘lunchtime’ facelift, thread lifts involve the use of threads or sutures made from the same materials used in surgery for many years now to treat open wounds. When placed under the skin, they can be used to stretch and regain the lost volume in areas of the skin that are sagging, by assisting and guiding local collagenesis and elastin production.
