Cellulite condition


Cellulite is the name given to the skin condition that is perceived as rippled skin. It is also commonly known as dimple-looking skin and is known to be found mostly on the thigh region. This condition is more prominent on women as opposed to men, affecting 98%. We get approached by many clients who are looking to counteract their dimpled skin so that they can walk confidently.

The Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite is caused by the fatty tissues pushing up against the connective tissues within the dermatological layer under the surface of the skin. It is most prevalent in women as their connective tissues and fat cells that are found in the said layer are arranged vertically, hence the cellulite’s form. This pushing effect causes the skin to become rippled.

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.

For up to approximately six months while the threads continue to dissolve, the skin will gradually become smoother, plumper and clearer. Your skin will be reignited with collagen, smoothening out the ripples and dimples of your skin. The results are natural but still very effective when treating cellulite.
Due to a Collagen Thread Lift being a non-surgical procedure, it does not deliver permanent results. However, a thread lifts’ results can last anywhere from 18 months to 3 years, depending on the original state of the skin and how your body reacts to the treatment. In other words, yes. We recommend maintenance to ensure that your skin stays smooth and ripple-free.

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.

If you lose weight or strengthen your muscles that are found in the legs, bottom and abdomen, there is a chance that you can reduce the visibility of your cellulite. However, your cellulite will not be relinquished completely due to the fat cells still remaining which is why we recommend a thread lift for effective and reliable results.
Again, this question’s answer is very much dependent on the size of the area being treated, but in most cases, a thread lift takes anywhere from an hour. We endeavour to deliver you with your desired results, so we will ensure that we do that, no matter how long it takes.
