The treatment of skin elasticity and skin appearance with resorbable sutures

Thread lift

The procedure was already developed at the beginning of the century and represents a further alternative for the efficient treatment of wrinkles and an improved skin appearance. In contrast to a “large operative” face lift, the NETWORK thread lift primarily involves the formation of new connective tissue and the reconstruction of the collagen supporting framework. Pulling the tissue into a new position can then be considered as a second step.

Only the development of new suture materials, which are dissolved by the body after a certain time, as well as further insights into how and which sutures can positively influence the appearance of the skin, have brought results in recent years which have opened up a new dimension in this field.

Areas of application / Indications

Skin tightening in general

Thread lifting can be used on the face as well as on the body for all disturbing skin surpluses. It is ideal as a combination treatment with injection lipolysis, needling, PRP therapy or mesotherapy.


There are some regions of the body or face for which there are few therapeutic options available to the aesthetic doctor. Thread lifting is the first choice here:
Wrinkles of the décolleté, wrinkles in the eye or upper lip region, excess skin on the neck.
Many other regions can also be treated very well with the resorbable sutures, for example the cheek region. Your attending physician will give you the best therapy recommendation after an exact analysis of your skin status.

Skin appearance

Thread lifting not only improves the elasticity of the skin, but also improves the overall appearance of the skin. The skin looks healthier and more vital, the complexion is improved and also the smoothness of the skin shows a clearly improved appearance.

The effect of the sutures

During thread lifting, very thin threads are inserted into the skin with the help of a guide needle. The irritation of the skin caused by the inserted threads stimulates a new collagen build-up, connects with the existing collagen fibres, so that new blood vessels form around the threads, growth factors are activated and revitalising reactions are produced. Even existing fat can be reduced by the sutures.
The number and type of sutures depends on the area to be tightened and your wishes.
Depending on the severity of the loss of elasticity, this first stage of treatment is carried out once or twice with different direction and position of the sutures. Only when new skin structures have formed can – if necessary – the position of the anatomical units be improved by traction.

The NETWORK-Globalhealth and the Globalhealth Academy for Aesthetic Medicine
The Globalhealth Network is an international network of physicians with over 2000 members in 64 countries. The Globalhealth Academy has developed a training concept for non-surgical aesthetic procedures and has been training these procedures for several years. Competent trainers and lecturers who enjoy high international recognition are engaged. New developments are passed on to the members in continuous advanced training courses. The basic principle of the Academy is to conduct only objective and neutral training courses.

Consent and information

A comprehensive information of the patient about the offered therapy is a special concern for NETWORK physicians, in order to give you as a patient a good basis for your decision. Advice on treatment options as well as objective clarification of all potential risks and side effects is a necessary and desired component of every treatment and the basis of a trusting and long-standing relationship between you, the patient and your treating physician.
