My first experience with threads was last October. I had had my cheeks volumized with dermal fillers few times in the past but when the PromoItalia disolvable threads became available, with potential results lasting up to 5 years, I was excited to try. I had my cheeks done and I have been extremely pleased with the results.
The procedure itself was quite easy. It was the following few days to 3 weeks that needed more attention. My cheeks were taped up to support the threads for 5 days, I slept elevated with 3 pillows and after that skin was quite sensitive to touch for about 3 weeks till the threads settled in the tissue. The results, beautiful and natural, really started to come through in about 3-4 months. Best thing to me is, it is all my own collagen growth, so it’s distributed very evenly across the cheeks. The quality of my skin is better, firmer and healthier.
So this time I decided to have my neck done with the new I-Thread technique.
The new threads to firm the upper neck promised a tighter skin, nice defined jaw line and of course again, years of natural collagen with long lasting results. Neck is one of the first areas to show the ageing of the skin and as the skin is finer and the cell turn over on the neck is slower, it’s harder to treat in every way. To get the best results, I was advised I should have some liposuction done on the same day to get rid of the small amount of fat in the area. Local anaesthetic was injected, and liposuction done with a small canula. Totally painless. The treads went in next, again the local aesthetic had done a great job and I couldn’t feel any pain. A little pulling and pushing and that was it. Neck got taped up and a bandage went around my neck and head for support. I wore the bandage for 4 days, then few nights at home after that. Tape came off 5 days later.
It has been 3 weeks since my neck was done. Area is still settling down from liposuction but the swelling is gone. The neck procedure was very easy in every way. Worst part: it restricted me from eating big mouthfuls. If you want a nice, defined jaw line, firmer and better quality skin on upper neck don’t hesitate. I have become a huge fan of treads and highly recommend them. In couple of months, we’ll take the after picture and you are welcome to come and have a look!
