Silhouette soft thread lift

Depleting levels of collagen and elastin over time lead to loss of volume within the skin. In turn, this causes facial sagging, (one of the main signs of premature ageing), which can lead to unsightly jowling, hollowing and other volume loss concerns. While there are popular injectable options for volumising the skin, a lesser known treatment might offer a better alternative for your particular concerns.

A Silhouette soft thread lift is minimally invasive and involves the use of re-absorbable Poly L-Lactic threads that act as a scaffolding beneath the skin. It is suitable for most areas of the face, including the neck, the cheeks and the jowls, and offers multiple benefits unlike any other similar treatmentAs well as restoring lost volume, the threads stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid as they dissolve over time, enhancing the results by improving elasticity while strengthening and thickening the skin.

This is an injectable treatment involving the insertion of very fine threads lined with cones that attach themselves to the surrounding tissue and offer an immediate lift to the skin. A topical anaesthetic is used to minimise any pain or discomfort. The treatment lasts 60-90 minutes.

Immediately post-treatment, you skin will appear naturally volumised and will continue to do so for up to 2 years. While the threads themselves dissolve over the course of 3-6 months, your results are enhanced and prolonged as a result of the protein-boosting, anti-ageing effects of the threads. Maximal results can be seen at around 12 months post treatment.

In most cases, this type of treatment lasts between 60-90 minutes.

Most patients need a thread for each decade of life, so for example a patient in their 60’s would need 6 threads in order to see the desired results, although many return for repeat treatments after the results wear off, which is usually after a period of 12-18 months. Unlike other non-surgical volumising treatments, the results of a Silhouette soft thread lift last considerably longer, prolonging the time between maintenance treatments.
