In the age of social media, most of us want instant gratification and this view is applied on many aspects of our lives, including our skin. We want the best results in the shortest period of time, and when that doesn’t happen, we are ready to jump to the next cream, serum or mask we hope can solve our skin concerns in a flash.

The same goes for thread lifts, which has gained popularity for being minimally invasive, and solves ageing concerns like sagging jowls and nasolabial folds. What exactly are thread lifts? We speak to Dr Tan YZ of Mizu Aesthetic Clinic to learn more.
