Thread lift

A threadlift is an anti-aging alternative to cosmetic surgery,  is a minimally-invasive technique designed to give you a refreshed appearance through the use of fine surgical threads. Although a threadlift can raise droopy areas of the brow, cheeks, jowls, and neck, it will not produce the same dramatic results as a facelift or brow lift.
