This newly approved procedure is considered the least invasive of face lift methods. The thread lift technique uses patented self-anchoring polypropylene threads, which have been used safely in surgical procedures for decades. These contour threads lift and suspend tissues in the facial area by self-anchoring threads with barbs that attach to underlying tissues. This method is safe and less invasive than other methods, and yields conservative, natural results.
