The Causes of Cellulite
Collagen Thread Lifts for Cellulite
We tend to administer collagen thread lifts for cellulite due to their collagen renewal traits. As opposed to a dramatic lifting effect that the MINT Super Thread Lift gives, a collagen thread lift’s nature is to rejuvenate the skin thoroughly, allowing it to take back its youthful form of being smooth and plump.
The key component in this procedure being collagen. Collagen is one of the most vital proteins of the body; its found in bones, muscles and the skin. While it’s a structural protein that keeps our body from falling apart, along with elastin, it also ensures that our skin stays supple, smooth and glowing.
To begin with, a clinician will insert the dissolvable threads into the dermis of the skin. Once inserted, the threads will attach onto the tissue found under the problem areas of the skin. They will then be connected to another point that will create a slight lifting effect.
After insertion, this is where the magic happens. The blood flow will begin to strengthen in the treated area, while the threads reposition the tissues. This process automatically triggers the body’s natural healing process. During this transition, like with any wound, the body will produce fibroblasts, which in turn, generate new collagen cells.
During the healing of any wound, collagen supports Hyaluronic Acid and Neocollagenesis when protecting and nurturing the wound. This system will continue to happen over the course of several months, post-procedure when the fibroblasts bank the new collagen cells.
As cellulite is very common, we do recommend this treatment for anyone. However, please bear in mind that this procedure is for drastic skin rejuvenation and so we don’t always advise those who are young to have it done. To ensure that you fully qualify for a thread lift, we do ask that you attend a consultation at our clinic.
Here, we will talk you through the full procedure while we assess your skin to see if you are suitable. Also, it gives you the perfect opportunity to voice any concerns or questions that you may have.
