Get the Gloss: APTOS Thread Method
ARE VIDEO CALLS MAKING YOU PAY MORE ATTENTION TO YOUR NECK? IF YOU'RE NOTICING SAGGING OR TIRED-LOOKING SKIN, YOU'RE NOT ALONE. HERE ARE THE NECK CREAMS TO BUY AND THE TREATMENTS TO INVEST IN FOR A FIRMER, YOUTHFUL NECK
You don’t need us to tell you we’re spending more times on our phones and laptops – you’ve probably already been screen time shamed by the weekly screen time notification from Apple. The effect of the constant looking down is having an impact on our necks, resulting in the appearance or deepening of lines, creases and sagging, known as 'tech neck'.
Thread lifts for a sagging neck
Thread lifts are one of the most requested treatments post-lockdown, according to Dr Paul Banwell of the Banwell Clinic in Sussex. The treatment involves an incision being made into the skin and then the skin being hoiked up. “With thread lifts, we can very quickly transform the jawline area without the patient having to go under the knife. We're seeing more and more patients asking for jawline enhancement to treat problems such as ‘tech-neck.”
“Thread lifts work by inserting small threads under the skin which we then gently pull,” explains Dr Banwell. “This gives an instant lifting effect but also stimulates collagen production to give a long term improvement in firmness and texture of the skin.”
