Thread lift on forehead was painful. Yes, it was an improvement on my upperlids and forehead lines. Thread and knots had memory ( can be seen ) I wear bangs so it is not obvious. A year later I asked about repulling them and was told the advertising was misleading and it would be best if I did not do so. This was a big disappointment and one of the reasons I had them WAS to repull at a later date.
