The procedure entails temporary sutures to produce miniature lifts in the skin, visible but subtle. There is no surgical tooling involved so no removal of skin or any other parts. The loose skin is suspended and stitched in proportions which pulls and holds the skin back tightly and accommodates a lifting and tightening effect of the face. Collagen provocation due to the process, helps trigger a healing response and targets the treated areas. This helps halting the aging process in a more natural way than cosmetic.
