The neck area can be one of the biggest giveaways of age.
Neck skin is thin and delicate, which means that the area is quick to show signs of ageing. As well as lines and creases, the main concerns relate to general sagginess and loose skin, creating a real loss of definition around the jawline. Any weight gain can stretch the skin further and add pressure to the tissues, while weight loss leaves the skin looking thin and loose.
The neck is traditionally a very difficult area to treat without surgery due to the low amount of natural collagen. However, thread lifting has created exciting new opportunities for non-invasive neck rejuvenation.
Thread lifting works to address the sagginess in the skin by inserting specially designed threads and sutures to ‘lift’ the skin to a higher, more youthful position. This improves and redefines the structure of the face for a sharper profile with smoother skin. The process of inserting threads into the skin also stimulates cell renewal and collagen production within the skin itself, which gently rejuvenates the area over the following weeks for a smoother, firmer and tighter complexion.
Dr John Tanqueray favours the new FTC Fine Thread Contour PDO Threads, which are soft and fully resorbable.
As the procedure is not surgical, it is quick and easily tolerated. There is no lengthy recovery and risks/complications are minimal. Above all, the result appears natural, fresh and youthful with results that last up to 2 years
