What is a browlift using threads?

Sutures with barbs are inserted under the skin to suspend the skin and to stimulate collagen

How do threads work?

The revitalizing threads have a unique design and utilise specially developed and patented soft barbs (also known as cogs) that attach to the surrounding skin tissue (just like Velcro) to hold the skin in place and achieve the desired lift effect . The resulting beneficial effect can be achieved quickly and without any visible scars. The threads dissolve within 9 to 12 months but due to the associated supportive scaffolding, the revitalizing effect is maintained for several years before another procedure is required
