Thread lifting (him)
Thread lifting is an innovative method in treating wrinkles which enjoys steadily increasing popularity in aesthetic medicine. In contrast to the surgical facelifting the thread lifting does not go along with skin cuts and, instead, uses threads which are placed underneath the skin where they lead to a lifted and rejuvenated skin appearance. Even though the threads are absorbed by the body after some time the lifting effect appears to stay any longer. The threads are stimulating regenerative processes of the body which are resulting in a long-term improvement of the skin.
