As we get older the inevitable signs of ageing start to take hold. Seeing ageing within skin is never fun; whether it’s your sagging jawline or the loss of elasticity around your cheeks, it can confusing to know how best to tackle these issues. There are plenty of cosmetic treatments out there that claim to be the solution to turn back the hands of time for your skin and it can be hard to figure out which one is right for you. If surgery isn’t the right option for you, and injectables alone just aren’t providing you with the results you hope for, the cutting edge Dr Perfect V-Line treatment might be the solution you’ve be looking for, and it’s now available right here at Canterbury Skin & Laser Clinic, in Kent. Dr. Mark Hudson-Peacock, an expert in facial rejuvenation treatments including the latest thread lifting techniques, answers your questions about V-Line thread lifts and explains how a non-surgical treatment like this can transform your skin and make you look years younger in just ONE session.
What is V-Line treatment?
Dr Hudson-Peacock: Dr Perfect V-Line is the latest in cosmetic thread lift treatment and provides patients with an effective and convenient way to improve the look and feel of the signs of ageing and loss of elasticity – both within the face and the body. What makes V-Line treatment different to many others like it is that the procedure uses several strands of thick suture that are tied to guiding threads in order to simultaneously place the threads in a much faster and safer way. This minimises any discomfort patients many feel and makes for a quicker procedure time.
What V-Line treatment involve?
Dr Hudson-Peacock: V-Line treatment involves inserting the threads into the treated area under local anaesthetic to reduce any discomfort. The V-Line threads are then placed into the correct position within the treated area to promote skin lifting and the growth of collagen within the dermis. You will be given a full consultation prior to treatment where your doctor will show you where the threads will be placed, and how they should lift your skin. If you have any questions regarding how the treatment works, or how the threads help to promote future collagen growth please ask your professional.
Who are good candidates for V-Line treatment?
Dr Hudson-Peacock: Good candidates for V-Line thread lifting can be both men and women who are seeing signs of ageing within their skin – specifically around the cheeks, jaw and brow – and loss of skin elasticity due to depleting collagen. This is because V-Line treatment is designed to give patients the with early-mid signs of ageing a solution which can improve the quality of their skin to prevent ageing skin and lose of tone in the long term.
How long until you see results?
Dr Hudson-Peacock: Patients often report an improvement in the tone and firmness of their skin immediately following treatment. This will improve further over the period of 2-6 months following treatment as the collagen production begins to speed up, rejuvenating the face and helping to make your skin appear firmer.
What are the benefits?
Dr Hudson-Peacock: There are many benefits that come with V-Line thread lift treatment that encourage patients to opt for the treatment each year. The vast improvement the treatment can provide to those with the signs of ageing within their skin makes it very popular at the clinic. Not only can V-Line treatment can help improve the look of existing lines, wrinkles and sagging within the tissue, but it can also help keep further signs of ageing a bay thanks to the stimulation of new collagen within the dermis level of skin. Secondly, V-Line thread lift treatment can also improve the tone of loose skin on the body, as well as the face. V-Line treatment can be used to improve tone and elasticity on areas such as the thighs, arms and even the abdomen (ideal for new mums) in order to promote better blood circulation and restore tone the skin. Patients may achieve a visibly up-lifted and more toned appearance to treatment areas of the body as a result of this.
