Thread-lift for Facial Rejuvenation – Assessment of Long-term Results

A recent article has been published discussing a study performed on the effectiveness of thread lifts for facial aesthetic improvement.

The conclusion of the study: The thread-lift provides only limited short-term improvement that may be largely attributed to postprocedural edema and inflammation.

Given these findings, as well as the measurable risk of adverse events and patient discomfort, we cannot justify further use of this procedure for facial rejuvenation.
