Q. What is a Thread Lift? A. Non- surgical sutures placed into the subdermal layer of the skin to initiate collagen production. Q. Can I see results after the procedure? A. The procedure can result in increased firmness and elasticity of the skin in the treated area, but may not correct all your facial laxity or sagging. Q. Are there any risks involved in the procedure? A. Some discomfort may be experienced during the treatment, although a local topical numbing cream will be applied. Sutures are inserted using a small needle and might cause a little scar, but will heal. Bruising of the treated area may occur with the potential for swelling.
