These days, men and women around the world go to great lengths to make themselves appear younger. They undergo facelifts, get filler injections, and even use Botox to essentially paralyze and relax muscle groups to release their wrinkles. One new trend, known as threading, may also work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by creating a natural-looking lift that does not appear frozen in place.
What Is Threading?
In short, threading is a process by which a plastic surgeon inserts thin and sometimes barbed threads into the face to lift it up. It essentially provides a “support system” that, while far less invasive than a traditional facelift, still provides more natural-looking results than fillers or Botox. Although it may not sound appealing, it is actually not as bad as it sounds. Many surgeons call it one of the most innovative facelift techniques to date, and more and more doctors around the world are offering it to their patients.
