How A Collagen Thread Lift Treats Lack of Volume
Table of Contents
You may have heard that a Thread Lift’s primary purpose is to lift and rejuvenate, but what most people don’t know is that they’re highly beneficial for treating lack of volume too. Do you suffer from a dense or sunken face due to ageing or any other lifestyle changes? This is, in most cases, natural and hard to prevent. As we begin to age, we start to decline in crucial proteins of the skin, bones, and muscles called Collagen and Elastin.
These essential proteins are what keep our skin looking glowing, smooth and plump, amongst all other lovely youthful attributes. So, you’ll be happy to know that we’re here to talk about procedures that are able to reunite you with these proteins and bring your appearance back to life.
In today’s article, we’re going to address further the reasoning behind why we lack volume, poise and life in our skin as we age, and how we can counteract these changes through the revolutionary treatments that we call Thread Lifts.
Why Does Our Skin Lose Volume?
As previously stated, as we age from as young as 25, our voluminous skin can begin to sag, our eyes can start to sink, and our cheeks can start to crack. While this is happening, there’s only one culprit – the lack of Collagen and Elastin. Elastin is what keeps our skin tight, smooth and lifted, whereas Collagen is what keeps it firm, supple and bright.
While these begin to decline, and with the additional life habits of smoking, sun exposure and an unhealthy diet, our skin can rapidly decrease in all of these positive attributes that we crave to have in our appearance. Without these proteins, our skin can simply no longer support our facial tissue. Therefore, the gravitational pull begins to encourage sagging, and our skin starts to crack and sink.
How Can Collagen Thread Lifts Counteract Loss Of Volume?
While this is a natural occurrence, there are ways that we can manipulate our skin to go back to its original and youthful state. A Collagen Thread Lift is one of our most highly esteemed procedures that can reinstate your suppleness and bring life back to your cheeks. This is through the regeneration of our friend, Collagen.
During a Collagen Thread Lift, dissolvable, biodegradable and biocompatible threads are inserted into the dermis of the skin through the use of a microneedle. The threads are made of Polydioxanone; a protein-based substance that is already found in our bodies, making it highly safe and robust.
Once the threads are inserted and attached to an anchor point, they immediately produce a lift. Although this lift is visible and impressive, we would recommend our MINT Super Thread Lift for dramatic lifting effects. Our body reacts to these foreign bodies that have caused trauma to the facial tissues and automatically get to work healing the treated area.
During this healing process, fibroblasts are created, which in turn reproduce collagen cells, the main component to plump skin. These new collagen cells are then banked from the fibroblasts covering them. This process is called Collagenesis. Banking is the process of protecting and storing over a long period of time. Because of this, the results of a Collagen Thread Lift aren’t necessarily seen instantly, but rather over the course of six months or so.
Because the treatment is essentially boosting collagen production, your body will create further collagen cells that can fight the signs of ageing in future too. The effectiveness of this cycle is dependent on age and the client themselves, but once optimum results are met, all clients can enjoy youthful, plump and glowing skin.
Ultimately, clients are given a lifted surface that accentuates the natural structure of the face and younger-looking skin from the new Collagen that has promoted facial rejuvenation and filled out the cheeks and other areas of the face that were once sunken and lifeless. As previously mentioned, this won’t be an immediate effect, but clients can visibly watch their skin and overall appearance improve over the course of half a year.
