First of all, let me speak about the elephant in the room. At age 41, I am still young and have healthy skin (thanks to a stringent routine of cleansing, toning, treating, moisturising and sunscreening since age 14), and quite honestly, I feel better in my skin than I ever have. But there’s no denying the collagen depletion and bone loss that comes with age. Yes, that’s right. Apparently, bone mass peaks around ages 25–30 years and declines gradually thereafter in both men and women. Yay! 

This is why I started having fillers at around age 37. (You can read my previous articles where I wax lyrical about liquid facials and lip fillers.) Now that I’m entering my 40s, I wanted to try something that didn’t just fill the depleted areas but that actually helped my own body generate its own collagen over time. Enter thread lifts. I first heard about threads through Vanessa Lee, RN, a world-renowned medical aesthetic provider and founder of The Things We Do. Her “beauty guidance with natural intention” philosophy has garnered a major A-list clientele list (everyone from Kate Hudson to Lucy Hale to Kourtney Kardashian are fans of her skincare line and beauty tools), and it’s easy to see why: Lee’s work speaks for itself.
