The thread-lift provides only limited short-term improvement

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. Our results objectively demonstrate the poor long-term sustainability of the thread-lift procedure. 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.
