Thread lifts use a medical-grade material called polydioxanone or PDO. These threads, composed of long chains of sugar molecules, have tiny barbs that help them hold onto and lift the skin. The threads come in syringes and are inserted under the skin. The threads then attach to and pull up the skin, making it look tighter and firmer.
Inserting the threads and applying the right lift requires a skilled hand, so a professional with experience in this procedure should only perform thread lifts. While it seems fast and straightforward, a thread lift requires artistry to give you the facial shape you want.
