The Causes of Ageing Skin
Our skin begins to age due to our body’s naturally losing their levels of both collagen and elastin. These structural proteins are what keeps our body from essentially falling apart; both are found in bones, tissues and the skin. In terms of the skin, collagen is what keeps the skin firm, as well as plump and glowing and elastin is what keeps it tight.
From as young as your early 20s, your body starts to decline in both of these proteins, which is why so many anti-ageing products include collagen-inducing elements and it is consistently preached about in the media to use them. Another supporting factor of our skin ageing is an unhealthy lifestyle such as a poor diet or smoking, as well as genetics and environmental factors.
Collagen Thread Lifts for Ageing Skin
Although its good to use a cream or gel of such a nature, a collagen thread lift procedure is able to rejuvenate the skin while also reigniting it with its lost proteins. When we define ageing skin, our automatic response is fine lines and wrinkles, as well as ageing spots; if you’re looking to combat these signs of ageing, a collagen regenerating thread lift such as our Collagen Threads is your best bet at attaining clear, smooth skin.
A Collagen Thread-Lift treatment solely focuses on the quality of the skin, as opposed to a MINT Super Thread Lift which dramatically lifts the skin too. During the procedure, a clinician will insert medical-grade threads into the dermis of the skin. These threads are smooth, rather than barbed because rejuvenation is their primary function. Once hooked onto facial tissues, these dissolvable sutures automatically trigger the body’s natural healing process. During insertion, the threads are essentially remodelling the skin tissues, and from this, trauma is caused.
From the diverse effects on the tissues that are previously mentioned, the PDO-based threads naturally relax the tendons in muscles found in the surrounding area to the wound. This is because Polydioxanone is also a protein which our body naturally produces anyway.
From the encouragement of new collagen and our muscles being relaxed, our body can be reignited with the rejuvenated protein. Banking collagen simply means keeping it for longer- for up to six months, while the threads fully dissolve, you will see the dramatic anti-ageing effects of these new collagen cells. With new collagen, the skin will begin to brighten, clear, smoothen and encourage an even skin tone.
