As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and begins to sag. This can lead to a number of signs of aging, including jowls, drooping cheeks, and a loss of definition in the face. While there are a number of surgical procedures that can address these issues, many people are looking for a less invasive option.

Thread lifts offer a non-surgical way to lift and tighten the skin, without the need for surgery. This makes them a popular choice for people who want to look younger without undergoing a major procedure.

Thread lifts are performed by inserting medical-grade threads under the skin. These threads are then attached to the underlying tissue, which helps to lift and support the skin. There are a number of different types of threads that can be used for thread lifts, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

The most common type of thread used for thread lifts is PDO thread. PDO threads are made of a material that is naturally absorbed by the body over time. This means that the threads will eventually dissolve, leaving no scarring.

Other types of threads that can be used for thread lifts include PLA threads and PCA threads. PLA threads last longer than PDO threads, but they can also cause more inflammation. PCA threads are a newer type of thread that is said to stimulate more collagen production than other types of threads.

Thread lifts are typically performed in an office setting under local anesthesia. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to an hour, and patients can usually return home the same day.
