A Long Lasting Non-Surgical Face Lift
- Lifts loose facial skin
- Tightens skin
- Promotes collagen
Silhouette Thread Lift is a minimally invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery that helps achieve discreet results of a facelift with minimal downtime. The Silhouette threads are biodegradable anchoring sutures to lift and reposition sagging tissue to reverse the effects of ageing. These threads contain a substance called polylactic acid which naturally boosts collagen production to give skin a healthy glow. The sutures are inserted under a local anaesthetic to a depth of about 3-5mm under the skin, using a fine needle, they will naturally dissolve over time. The regenerating effect of stimulated collagen production continues after the sutures have dissolved for extended benefits beyond the tightening and lift effects of Silhouette Thread Lift. Results are immediately apparent after treatment and may last as long as 18 months.
After a small local anaesthetic is administered, the doctor inserts the Silhouette thread suture under the skin, 3-5mm deep. The suture is inserted using a fine needle and held in place with absorbable cones on the thread, like barbs. Once the suture is inserted, your doctor compresses the treated area to manipulate its shape for the desired lifting effect. The excess thread, suture, are cut off. This is repeated on the other side of the face for a balanced effect, and for the number of threads advised by your doctor during your consultation.
