Thread lifts are becoming an increasingly popular treatment for loose or sagging skin. As the
ageing process takes hold, collagen and elastin levels decrease and skin becomes less taught.
Threads are made of a biodegradable material, polydioxanone (PDO) much like surgical
stitches. As the threads dissolve, they stimulate the production of new collagen, which in turn
helps to tighten and ‘lift’ the skin, adding support to the structure of the face.
