It is safe because the thread used for thread lifting is thread that used to be used for heart valve surgery, has no induction of foreign body reaction, and is melted in a few weeks.

How is thread inserted?

A thread as thin as a hair is inserted. With thread hanging on a fine needle, once needle goes into the skin and comes out, thread is fixed in the skin. Many people are scared because there would be many stinging with needle. However, the needle is very thin, so the pain is not as hard as one could imagine. (Of course, there are 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation threads with a thick needle, but only a few of these threads are used

How many types of threads?

Along with development of thread lifting, there have been multiple types of threads developed to date, including 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th/generation threads. The 1st generation thread is like a straight line thread, and the 2nd generation thread has curved in a tornado shape. The 3rd generation thread has a protrusion on thread, and the/4th generation thread has a knot on thread. 2nd, 3rd, and 4thgeneration/threads have been developed to improve lifting functions of thread.
