There are different kinds of threads which may be used to lift any part of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, jowls, jawline and neck. The two main types are made of either Poly L lactic acid (PLA) or polydioxanone (PDO) also caprolactone. Both PLA and PDO have collagen stimulating properties and are resorbable (dissolve over time leaving tighter 'scar’ maybe use ‘repair’ tissue instead as they often produce Type 3 Collagen tissue behind to prolong the result.) The threads are either smooth (monos) for improving skin texture or consist of barbs, cogs, anchors or screws to reposition the tissue.
Thread lifts are a regulated procedure. Clinics where thread lifts are performed by nurses, doctors and dentists are required by law, to be registered with The Care Quality Commission.
