A thread lift is a type of procedure where temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, it is suspended by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face.
In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging by provoking the body's "healing response" and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas.
The biggest advantage of having a thread lift rather than a facelift is the greatly reduced recovery time associated with the procedure. Recovery from a thread lift is comparatively easy as they can be performed under local, rather than general anesthesia. As a non-invasive procedure, thread lifts are very low risk.
Downtime and side effects include mild discomfort, redness and swelling.
