Procedures during a Pandemic

The world couldn’t have predicted what 2020 would bring when we raised our glasses to the New Year. Before we could even falter on our annual resolutions, life as we knew it came to a sudden halt with Covid-19. Nearly every part of life became heavily restricted within the space of a few days; job security, financial certainty, freedom of movement, social interaction, and access to many basic necessities all took a knock and with that comes a lot of stress.

In the blur of constantly adjusting to new normals, many don’t realise the effect stress has on the human body, both physically and mentally.

After nine-months in a Pandemic, many have had a moment to look back and realise… “Wow, this year has aged me”. Luckily, going gray is determined by genetics and not the whirlwind of life but our skin isn’t so lucky.

Stress:

When our bodies are exposed to a threat of any kind, a Fight or Flight mode is triggered. Our nervous system flips into action and produces larger quantities of Cortisol, Adrenaline and Noradrenaline – chemicals that give our body the ability to survive difficult situations.

Research has shown that an increased production of these stress hormones contributes to breaking down collagen in our skin. When this happens, things go downhill, quite literally. Loss of collagen and elastin causes premature wrinkles, sagging, bags under your eyes, dryness, and dullness.

The more stress we’re under, the more cortisol is produced.

This doesn’t even include the lifestyle changes that have emerged during this year. The extreme levels of life’s uncertainty has further manifested in lack of sleep, poor diet, reduced exercise/movement, time outdoors, and a degree of screen-time as never seen before.

The pandemic has gifted us with a whole array of skin problems but limited options to seek aesthetic treatments and procedures.

The good news?

We have, unknowingly, been preparing and refining our technology and procedures to provide the anti-ageing solution perfect for this period.

Want to know why?

  • Thread lifting is an easy way to smooth wrinkles and tighten sagging skin without surgery.
  • Threads are inserted without requiring any incisions.
  • The dissolvable threads activate the skin’s collagen and elastin production.
  • The procedure takes, on average, 30 minutes which decreases any exposure risks in treatment facilities.
  • Minimum downtime: many go back to work the same day.
  • The procedure can lift, contour, and suspend the sagging tissues of face, neck, and body in those people who need only little to moderate rejuvenation.
  • There is a revolutionary new formula of thread composition that also improves skin tone, texture, colour, and hydration.
