What Are Mono-Threads? Dermatologists Explain the Skin-Care Procedure Eva Mendes Refers to as ‘Being Tortured’
Halloween may be over, but scary-good skin care never stops. Forget vampire facials, let’s get into mono-threads, the “torturous” beauty procedure that former actress Eva Mendes can’t get enough of according to an Instagram post.
What do mono-threads do?
Less expensive and less invasive than a surgical face-lift, mono-threads give you the benefit of a long-term collagen boost, but the lifting and jaw-defining effects only last about a year as the threads eventually dissolve. “Your body slowly breaks [the threads] down, and leaves a trail of collagen in its place,” Rachel Nazarian, MD, a New York-based dermatologist, tells Health. (Your body produces collagen in an effort to promote healing.) “The new fibers that your body makes in the location will give an anti-aging effect of localized [skin] tightening,” she adds.
