A Thread Lift is a facial rejuvenation procedure and it is alternative to traditional facelift surgery. It may be known as a non-surgical facelift but in fact it is a surgery. The Thread Lift offers many of the benefits of a face lift but with less risk and recovery time and it leaves no scar.

For the facial lift rejuvenation the threads are used to stretch and tighten the skin. It is used in the cheekbones, the tail of the eyebrows, forehead, chin, jowls, neck, and all the areas affected by sagging and wrinkles. On the body, the thread lift is used to lift the buttocks and tighten the arms, abdomen, thighs and crotch.
The procedure is ideal for correcting the early fall of tissues in men or women with premature facial aging. The Thread Lift may not be indicated for people with too many wrinkles and sagging skin. In this case we recommend a face lift.
The procedure consists of placing with a special guide needle, threads of 8 to 12 cm long under the skin. These lines traction in the right direction, reposition the muscles and skin to its natural position, obtaining the lifting effect on the treatment area. Finally bandage is placed.
The results are seen immediately and the patient can return home after placement. The final results begin to be felt after 20 days and will continue to improve as it becomes concentrated the formation of collagen around the threads. The Thread Lift surgery leaves no visible scar and lasts 2 to 3 years.
