How to apply them?
Although filling collagen threads can be done at home, we recommend visiting a health care or beauty center, where you can receive this treatment from professional dermatologists. It is safe to do at home though. All you need to do is to apply the collagen threads directly on the wrinkles on your face and neck and use hyaluronic acid or Vitamin C serum to help them melt into your skin. Then, using an ultrasonic or high-frequency device, these threads get rubbed into your skin to increase their effectiveness.
What are the areas that can be treated?
- Lion wrinkle (between your eyebrows)
- Crow’s feet (side eye wrinkles)
- Nasolabial (side of your nose)
- Mouth contour
- Smile line
- Full lower face
- Dewlap of the neck
How to find them?
On the one hand, there are several online beauty websites that sell collagen threads; however, we still recommend visiting a trusted beauty center to receive the proper treatment. You may also buy them from a trusted online website as long as you’re willing to try their products and use them on your face.
On the other hand, you can find this treatment in several clinics and beauty centers, where you can get it professionally done. After receiving this treatment, you can even follow with a facial to ensure that your skin is looking its best. The price differs from one place to another, so it is best to check with your dermatologist or a trusted clinic first.
Developing wrinkles and fine lines is nothing to be ashamed of. However, if it’ll help you feel better about yourself, you can surely go for this safe treatment since it doesn’t involve surgery or needles, and the results are immediate.
