This results in a younger and softer facial look.

Question: How are the wires administered?
Before the wire is inserted, lines are drawn on the face to accurately guide the plastic surgeon on the areas where the threads will be placed. Local anesthetic is also administered in these lines. A fine needle with a specially designed wire attached is then inserted under the marked lines (around the frown or smile line). The puncture marks are so small that no stitches are needed, and they are dressed with small pieces of sterile strips only.
