The Collagen Thread Lift, a non-surgical version of the Rhytidectomy which has been flooding the aesthetics scene for the past few years is said to be one of the most effective skin lifting treatments on the radar, especially when wanting to reverse signs of ageing from a young age. This treatment is able to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, while also re-establishing the facial structure that has been overtaken by excess skin.
Here at Thread Lift Experts, we are a team of highly qualified and experienced clinicians who only carry out industry-leading procedures that we are confident will deliver our clients with only the most impeccable results. Continue reading this blog post for a closer look into The Collagen Thread Lift procedure and why it is so sought out in the Aesthetics industry.
What Happens During a Collagen Thread Lift?
To begin with, a clinician will insert medical-grade threads into the dermis of the skin, using a very fine needle. These threads have barbs at the end of them that are cut into (see below for diagram) so that they are able to hook onto the skin’s tissue. Once hooked on to the area that needs lifting, they are then attached to a higher area of the facial tissue so that they can essentially be lifted and hung in place.
This causes trauma to the area that is being manipulated, which in turn, stimulates the body’s natural healing process. As the threads are made of a protein-based substance, the facial tendons and muscles automatically relax while the healing begins. Once started, the body improves on its blood flow in the areas that have been traumatised; this then produces fibroblasts which stimulate the production of new collagen.
Collagen is the most abundant protein of the body; it is the element that keeps the skin looking young, while also strengthening it. Once we reach the age of 25, our body’s production of collagen slows down, resulting in our skin losing its form. Without the vital proteins of collagen and elastin, our skin’s tissue begins to sag, wrinkle and lose its suppleness, so it is the fibroblasts job to improve on these fibres.
During this same process, this new collagen is banked so that post-treatment, your body continues to reap the benefits of it. While healing, the components of Hyaluronic Acid and Neocollagenesis, as well as the collagen and elastin work to protect the wound by creating a scaffolding mesh and fibrin over it; thus, banking it.
What Are The Results Of a Collagen Thread Lift?
Hence the name, collagen is the main factor behind having a Collagen Thread Lift; people in the past have even had this procedure done just so that they can reignite their skin with this protein. From new collagen production, the skin begins to smooth out, plump up and overall, look younger.
If you are looking to counteract fine lines and wrinkles, sagging or the loss of density to the skin, thread lifts are the right procedure for you. This thread-lift procedure is able to achieve the same outstanding results as a surgical facelift, without having to go under the knife.
Am I Suitable for a Collagen Thread Lift?
Both men and women can undergo a Collagen Thread Lift, and as it is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment, we recommend this treatment for people over the age of 30 that are looking to turn back the clock on their skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated With a Collagen Thread Lift?
Although this procedure is known for its tightening and lifting effect on the jawline, brows, neck and cheeks, we can also treat other areas of the body. We aim to provide each and every client with results that only exceed their expectations which is why, if we feel that a thread lift is the right direction to take for your situation, we will offer it to you upon consultation.
What Should I Expect During and After a Collagen Thread Lift?
A Collagen Thread Lift usually takes up to an hour, depending on the scale of the area being treated, and it has been said that little discomfort is felt, just a slight pin-prick sensation; especially when in conjunction with the anaesthetic.
Although there are next to no side effects to worry about with a Collagen Thread Lift, we still choose to educate our clients on what risks they could encounter. The side effects are and are not limited to bruising, redness, swelling and tenderness. In terms of aftercare, we advise our clients not to disturb the treated area to ensure optimum results are achieved.
The results of this procedure are almost immediate, and they will only improve as the weeks go by due to the banked fresh collagen.
