Thread Lifts are becoming increasingly common to enhance the outcome of non surgical face lifting, as an anti-ageing procedure, it is gaining more popularity as it is a simple,safe and minimally invasive procedure that can be done with local infiltrative anesthesia. Short healing time, reliable and long lasting effects and the possibility of combining with other aesthetic procedures such as Botox® , fillers, lasers, peels and liposuction are added advantages.
However, it should also be emphasized that threadlift is a relatively new procedure and due protocols should be followed.
