A thread lift is a type of cosmetic procedure in which temporary suture threads are used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. The procedure is minimally invasive, meaning it does not require the use of incisions or general anesthesia. Instead, the threads are inserted through small punctures in the skin, using a needle or a cannula. The threads are then used to lift and reposition the skin and underlying tissues, providing a subtle but noticeable improvement in the appearance of sagging or drooping skin. The procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete, and most people are able to return to their normal activities within a few days. It is important to note that thread lifts are not a replacement for a traditional facelift and are intended to provide only a temporary improvement in the appearance of the skin.
