Anyone on a thread lift course at the moment will be well versed in how these treatments work and no doubt you all know how to go about administering the non-surgical face lift on faces… but have you ever thought about helping to give saggy knees a lift in this way as well?

Wrinkled knees are yet another thing to worry about as we get older, although it might not occur to people that this would become a problem until it actually happens to them. It’s not like crow’s feet and laughter lines that are always being talked about – saggy, wrinkly knees don’t appear to be a commonly discussed topic at all.

But that’s not to say that you should ignore it and if a patient does mention it, you can tell them there is something they can do about it. Exercise is one avenue they could go down, with squats, leg extensions, yoga and Pilates all good for combating the sag. Drinking lots of water and moisturising dry areas can also help to keep wrinkles at bay.

However, you might also like to suggest that they think about having a thread lift on the knee area if they’re really concerned about how they look in a pair of shorts. The process is done exactly the same way as a facial thread lift would be and you can expect to see similar results, with the threads dissolving around six months after insertion.

If you’re interested in finding out more, make sure you talk to the tutor on your training course to see what insights they might have.
