Dr. Deborah Longwill, Dermatologist at Baptist Health South Florida, explains a thread lift to pull the skin and avoid the patient’s face grows too big because of the fillers.

“We take a thread that’s attached to a cannula and put it into the skin, then you pull back and it has like little cones and it clicks into the tissue. Now, these threads stay there and start building your collagen around the threads. The thread dissolves or metabolizes over six to nine months, but you’re left with your collagen and then over time you would do it again,” she says.
