A thread lift uses barbed suture threads made of polymers, which are inserted under the skin to improve the shape of the face. These threads are considered medical devices, and we only use brands that Health Canada approves. These polymers such as PDO and PLLA are biodegradable and dissolve slowly over 12-24 months.
The use of threads for cosmetic purposes started in the late 90s, but Canada was behind in adopting this procedure. Inserting a thread is a simple yet challenging procedure. The threads are inserted using a cannula and then tucked under the skin, as shown in this video.
