This is how thread lifting works
Thin threads (meso threads) made of biodegradable material tighten the tissue and stimulate the production of collagen. Unlike conventional lifting, there are no scars!
The very fine PDO threads are pulled under the skin under local anesthesia. These provide support for the tissue and lead to increased collagen production in the affected areas. This results in a double lifting effect! The PDO threads are completely degraded after about 6 to 8 months, so there is no risk of slippage or rejection.
