What is a threadlift?

Thread lift is a non-surgical procedure to lift up the skin. The skin is stitched by sutures to slightly pull the skin back, so the skin is lifted and tightened. In addition, the procedure provokes the body healing response which causes the body to directly send a large amount of collagen to the treated areas. Collagen plays an important role in our skin condition. As we age, the body produces less collagen causing unwanted skin issue such as wrinkles. In the healing process of the body, collagen helps to keep the skin strong, voluminous and supple. So, collagen results in progressing rejuvenation of the skin.
