What Is Facial Lifting With Ropes?

The face lift by means of ropes, also known as the French wire lift, is a non-surgical alternative to a traditional face lift. Instead of scalpels and knives, protein ropes and synthetic materials are used to achieve the same goal of removal of the face and neckline. The elasticity of the face declines with time due to the gravity and aging of our body. As the production of collagen decreases as we age, the fat reservoir in the face melts, as the skin begins to sag and detach. Although this can happen anywhere on the body, it is more visible on the face and neck where the skin is thinner and cannot be so easily covered.
