What are the pros and cons of face threadlifts compared to other techniques?
The benefits of facial threads are that they can be done in the clinic, do not involve surgical incisions and involve minimal downtime, with little bruising or swelling. The main drawback of facial threadlifts are that results last 1 to 2 years at the most. In addition, if not placed well, there may be complications such as infection, asymmetry and palpable threads, though these are rare. Other forms of minimally-invasive facelifts such as HIFU can avoid these issues, but may not achieve as significant a result, while surgical procedures offer more accurate and longer lasting results.
