Women and men, between the ages of 40 and 50, have a number of choices with regards to non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures. The better-known options, such as Botox and facial fillers, offer fantastic results. But with increased signs of facial ageing, many women are left with difficult decisions about what to do next to prolong the need for surgical intervention. Thread lifting provides an effective, minimally invasive alternative for a better, younger you.

A thread lift is a unique solution with immediate, natural effects used to treat sagging on the facial contours, jaw line, cheeks, neck and eyebrows. Best of all, the procedure can be done quickly and painlessly in the practitioner’s rooms in a short 40-minute procedure.

What is the procedure?

No special preparation is required prior to treatment. However, you need to inform your doctor of any treatment you have already received and any medications you are currently taking.

A small amount of local anaesthetic is administered, followed by the insertion of the threads with a microneedle. Once all the threads have been placed, they are tightened creating an immediate natural lifting effect.

Silhouette Soft is a tailor-made treatment, adapted to your needs and wishes. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with fillers and Botox.

The regenerating effect is gradual. By resorbing, the Poly-L-lactic acid in the thread acts on the deeper layers of the skin and stimulates the body to produce its own collagen. This action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume and restores the shapeliness of the face.

What do I need to do after the procedure?

Slight swelling and bruising may occur. Sometimes a slight depression or surface irregularity may appear at the entry points. These inconveniences disappear a few days after treatment.

  • Apply cold packs after the procedure to minimise swelling and reduce discomfort.
  • Avoid excessive facial and neck movements for two weeks.
  • Avoid face and neck massages for two weeks.

For best results, Silhouette Soft threads must be performed by a doctor who has undergone specific training for this procedure.
