Until recently, the only way to address sagging and drooping skin in the cheeks and jowls was to surgically be treated with a facelift. However, not everyone wants to go through such an invasive procedure unless absolutely necessary to treat their skin laxity. The great news is that there is a non-invasive way to address sagging skin that is quick and easy for individuals – old and young – utilizing collagen threads.
A thread “lift” is a type of procedure where temporary collagen strands are placed under the skin to produce a visible “lift” in the skin by pulling the skin back slightly. Results are immediate because of the actual lift of the skin, but the best part of this treatment is that the threads work FOR you over time.
Once the collagen threads are placed, they stimulate the body’s healing response that results in the release and growth of collagen around the treated areas. It is this collagen stimulation that helps support the release of growth factors that influence the condition of our skin. In addition to being used for wound healing, collagen helps to keep our skin strong, voluminous and tight.
There are several different types of collagen threads – some are meant to “lift” skin and others are smooth threads that are placed underneath just for the sole purpose to stimulate collagen production. The latter is very popular among our clients for added lip enhancements to create a subtle “pop”, and also for the treatment of stubborn wrinkles and scars.
The process of collagen thread treatment provides ongoing and progressive rejuvenation for the facial tissues. Our clients who have had either a thread lift or smooth thread treatment have noticed not only the immediate results, but more importantly a gradual improvement in their skin’s tone and firmness.
