A surgical facelift requires an aesthetic doctor to make a few incisions or one incision. The skin contour is manipulated through those incisions.

Nonsurgical facelift or thread lift is a safer option for a surgical facelift. Nonsurgical facelift or thread lift uses special threads to lift skin which results in tighter skin and slimmer face. Nonsurgical facelift uses biodegradable threads and because of this, the threads can be broken down naturally by your body. The threads are anchored and the subcutaneous layer of the skin and the result from this procedure can be seen immediately after the procedure completed.
The placement of the special threads beneath your skin will stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is the substance that gives the skin a structure. Due to the natural ageing process, the human body produces less collagen. As a result, the skin will lose its structure and form wrinkles together with skin folds. A few months after a nonsurgical facelift, collagen will start a remodelling process and your skin will start gaining its structure, complexion, and form.
Nonsurgical facelift or thread lift will take around 30 to 45 minutes per session depending on the location involved and also the number of threads used by the aesthetic doctor. Before placing the threads, an aesthetic doctor will place a numbing cream or an anaesthetic agent to reduce or prevent pain during the procedure.
