A thread facelift is a safe, convenient alternative to traditional facelift surgery. Designed to be less invasive, it can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck at a quicker rate and with less risk.
“Thread facelift is a solution for both women and men and the invisible fine threads are placed in the skin, getting to places on the face where other procedures cannot reach,” explains Dr Michelle Karl, Cosmetic Dentist at The Cosmetic and Dental Emporium’s (CDE) Menlyn practice. This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just one or two hours and often without anaesthesia.
