With age, the skin of the face loses its tone. Special Threads (sutures) are used to re-establish the support structure of the face. This gently lifts the skin of the face and results in a youthful, natural appearance. There are other techniques that involve more surgery around the face that can tighten skin and lift jowls and reduce wrinkles as well. Depending on your desired outcome the procedure that is best for you could be threads or a bigger face lift procedure.
