Thread face lifting of facial skin improves facial sagging, it is another effective option for face lifting other than surgical face lift, HIFU and radiofrequency.
Thread face lifting is the use of surgical absorbable suture, made of different lengths. The doctor implants the suture into the skin layer. The doctor will determine the number of threads based on the severity of laxity and the type of sutures, ranging from several to dozens of suture lines. The suture is fixed on the fascia of the face, pulling the skin tissue at both ends to tighten the skin layer and at the same time increase skin elasticity and firmness, and reduce facial wrinkles.
Most of the suture lines are made of absorbable material, and will be dissolved, absorbed and excreted from the body in several months. The threading effect varies from a few months to 1-2 year.
