Aesthetic thread lifts are minimally invasive non-surgical procedures that use implanted threads to lift and contour skin on face, neck and body. The threads are made of polydioxanone (PDO) or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which are gradually absorbed by the body. Compared to surgical face lifts, thread lifts have minimal downtime and fewer risks associated with anesthesia and wound healing. Thread lifts are increasingly being preferred for lifting eyebrow, cheeks and jowls. Growing preference for minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and rising awareness about potential benefits of aesthetic thread lifts are majorly driving the market growth.
