A thread-lift is not a face-lift. A face-lift is a surgical procedure (there are many varieties) which is much more substantial in terms of cost and recovery time, but also in terms of effect. The ideal age-group to consider a thread-lift is adults between 35 and 55 years. Occasionally older people may benefit, but ultimately it is not the age, rather the tissue quality that will determine whether an individual is suitable for a thread-lift or would be more appropriately managed by a surgical procedure.
The PDO variant is immensely popular in Korea and the benefits can now be found around the world.
