Thread lifts are a non-surgical aesthetic medicine technique used to improve the appearance of the skin by tightening and lifting it. This technique uses special sutures that are inserted under the skin to act as structural support.
Tensor sutures are made from absorbable materials such as polylactic acid or polydioxanone, which are commonly used in surgical sutures. These threads are inserted under the skin using a fine needle or microcannula, then gently pulled to create tension and lift the skin.
When the threads are placed under the skin, they also stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps maintain skin firmness and elasticity. Over time, the newly produced collagen strengthens the structure of the skin, creating a lasting lifting effect.
