Collagen Threads Liverpool
Collagen Threads are fantastic for skin rejuvenation. With the core element being collagen, clients are left with improved facial elasticity, an instant lift and younger-looking skin all from this one revolutionary and more effective alternative to Dermal Fillers and Skin Peels.
Collagen is one of the most vital proteins of the body; it is found in the bones, tendons and skin. Alongside elastin, another structural protein, the body’s form stays intact, and the skin is kept firm and tight from both. While these proteins are crucial for keeping skin looking younger, we do begin to decline in them in our early twenties.
Due to recent advancements, Collagen Threads can now encourage the growth of new collagen cells so that youth is restored and facial rejuvenation is met.
The Science of Collagen Threads
The Collagen Thread Lift uses non-barbed, PDO-based threads to cause a diverse effect on the issues surrounding them once inserted using a microneedle. In more detail, the threads work to reposition and cause trauma to the dermis of the skin. This trauma automatically signals the body to start healing; the blood flow is improved on, and the body produces fibroblast cells, an essential element of healing.
These fibroblast cells cause the regeneration of collagen cells, and together, alongside Hyaluronic Acid, they work to heal the wound. While collagen is produced through the process of neocollagenesis, these cells begin to strengthen the tissue, while also assisting in repositioning it back to its original state.
Neocollagenesis is the term given to the process of regenerating collagen. If you break the name up into sections, neo means new or revived, and then there’s collagen and synthesis which means ‘to form’.
To begin with, clients will be given an instant, visible lift. While the tissues continue to be manipulated and collagen takes its effects from being banked by the fibroblasts, clients will watch as both texture and tightness will continue to improve over a course of six months. After six months, when the threads have completely dissolved, optimum results will be met, and clients will see a significant improvement in the quality of their skin that now looks tight and supple.
Why Collagen Threads?
Polydioxanone (PDO) is a biodegradable and biocompatible substance that has been used in pharmaceutical and medical applications for over thirty years. As opposed to other skin rejuvenating surgeries that come hand in hand with risks and downtime, a Collagen Thread Lift is both safe and effective, while also being non-invasive.
Collagen Threads can resurface the skin, while also attaining a visible lift without going under the knife. Collagen is vital for our bodies, and this procedure can re-introduce this protein into the facial skin so that the clock can be turned back on an individuals appearence. It’s a highly effective and reliable treatment for anti-ageing.
The short answer to this question is yes. As previously mentioned, Polydiaxonone is a natural substance that our body already produces, making it biocompatible and entirely safe when being dissolved. Also, Collagen Threads bare next to no risks, as opposed to surgical procedures.
However, with any treatment comes some risk. Side effects could be and are not limited to swelling, bruising and redness. Comparing these with those that could be a consequence of surgery make this procedure highly favourable and reliable in terms of skin lifting and rejuvenation.
The ideal candidate for Collagen Threads is a client who is suffering from sagging skin on the cheeks, eyebrows, eyes, neck or jowls. However, due to this procedure being extremely effective in improving on the skins texture, appearence and quality, we recommend this treatment for anybody who wants to counteract ageing concerns on their skin too.
To ensure that you’re entirely suitable for this treatment, we do recommend that you book in for a consultation with one of our clinicians so that we can assess your skin.
This is very much dependent on the initial condition of the skin, how the body reacts to the treatment and if maintenance is undergone. However, generally, a thread lift can last from anywhere between eighteen months and three years. Clients have been known to have maintenance sessions every six to twelve months to preserve results.
