Here, 2-4 dermal threads (made of inert material) are introduced under the skin. The threads have a hook on the end and attach to the sub-dermal area targeted by your dermatologist. Dermal threads pull up the skin as you would expect and the reaction of the tissue surrounding the thread helps tighten it further. Do not worry, it is not as painful it may sound in the hands of a trained aesthetic dermatologist like the ones empaneled with us.
Made of inert material, the threads are inserted into the layers under the skin with the help of a needle. As you should be able to see in the associated video, these threads are placed by an expert dermatologist in the right layers of the skin. At the end of the threads are hooks that attach to the structurs under the skin. The result is that the threads pull the skin up, tightening it in the process.
