What is First Lift 4D Barb?
The First Lift 4D Barb threads are made of a specially developed system of microscopic hooks. Compared to other hook systems, which have hooks only on one side of the thread, these hooks are close to the thread and face in two directions. This is where the name First Lift 4D Barb comes from — the four-dimensional effect.
The First Lift 4D Barb threads are thicker than typical PDO threads, which maximises the lifting effect.
The technique is quick and relatively easy to carry out. No skin incision is necessary; the thread is placed in the subcutaneous tissue using a thin guide probe.
The area is numbed prior to treatment, so the treatment is nearly pain-free.

Facial contours can improve immediately after the treatment. This is due to the physical effect of the hooked threads that are inserted. The skin will become considerably firmer approximately 14 days after treatment; the threads stimulate the production of fibroblasts and elastin, which builds a new “scaffold” for the skin.
Skin may be slightly swollen after the treatment and may bruise.
My patients can return to normal daily activity immediately after treatment.
