Thread lift is the process of suspending the sagging on the skin with special threads. The skin succumbs to gravity and time over time. The supports placed under the tissue on the skin with the thread lift carry the skin upwards against gravity.
In the process, more jaw lines become prominent. It collects jowls sagging in people. It is called thread lift because it re-emerges the V face shape that has disappeared due to sagging. With the formation of the V face shape in people, a younger appearance and a more aesthetic expression are formed. Non-surgical lifting, that is, thread lift, differs from the others in terms of its working principle among the systems that activate the repair mechanisms of the skin in people. Collagen production is triggered by the blood circulation that starts around the threads placed inside the very thin needles, which are used to lift the sagging and fallen tissue upwards.

What is Thread Lift?
As human skin ages and sags, it needs a lifting effect too much. Especially the sagging around the eyes makes the person look older and makes the facial expression tired all the time. The reason for this situation is the deterioration of elastin fibers due to collagen deficiency. As age progresses, collagen production decreases and the self-renewal rate of the skin slows down and the skin begins to lose its elasticity. As a result, blood circulation slows down and the skin becomes dull and loses its vitality. Thread lift, on the contrary, is a skin rejuvenation method. With the hanging of the sagging skin, blood circulation is activated and collagen cell production is triggered. Connective tissue is renewed and elastin fibers are shortened. Thread lift is a non-surgical and comfortable application. Sagging is rapidly recovering and there is a self-repairing process in the lower layers of the skin. After the application, a younger expression and a brighter facial appearance are formed over time.
