Other environmental reasons that cause people to experience sagging jowls include sun damage, overexposure to computer screens, and smoking. Too much exposure to UV rays damages the collagen in the skin, which as discussed, is responsible for keeping the skin tight and smooth. Similarly, working too long on a computer can lead you to screen overexposure, which can prematurely cause signs of aging – one of which is saggy jowls. Lastly, smoking can cause jowls to sag faster because cigarettes contain harmful chemicals that damage collagen and elastin and slow blood circulation. There are many components that lead to the “turkey neck” issue that many encounter.
The idea behind the Elevate Thread Lift is to establish a support line along your jaw or cheeks that works against gravity in order to terminate sagging skin and other aging effects. The Thread Lift also stimulates collagen to fight this problem from the inside as well as the outside. The increase of collagen that comes from our procedure will not only improve elasticity, but it will also improve smoothness to provide a well-rounded solution for aging by-products.
The Elevate Thread Lift uses PDO Threads to create the aforementioned support line. Each thread is gently inserted in the subdermal skin tissue where they are then pulled in the desired direction to give you a lifting effect. Choose your problem area – the jaw, neck or cheek – and get right to improving it! For those suffering from saggy jowls, it might be most beneficial to address more than one problem area, as the jowls area encompasses a large portion of your face. The Threads are seamlessly absorbed, leaving you with no scars or cuts and allowing you to show off your newly rejuvenated face and neck in no time!
