The threads are made of resorbable material and can be used in combination with other treatments like botox or injectable fillers.
Who is suitable for a Thread Lift?
The procedure is suitable for most people when the initial effects of ageing become apparent.
Threads are implanted into the sub-dermis
and stimulate the production of collagen,
tightening tissues and exerting a minimal lifting action.
Silhouette Soft are suspension sutures made of polylactic acid (PLA) that have a row of tiny bidirectional cones. When the thread is inserted sub-dermally the cones anchor to the surrounding tissues, providing a discreet lifting effect.
Silhouette Soft sutures are placed under local anaesthesia, in a matter of a few minutes, no visible scars are produced. The benefits last several months.
Another type of threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO) a substance that dissolves in 6-8 months. These threads are used in the face and in the body.
During reabsorption PDO threads cause a very mild inflammatory reaction promoting new collagen production (neo collagenesis).
The final effect is tightening and lifting of sagging areas of tissue and skin.
These new technologies are a very frequent request nowadays. If the patient is not ready or does not jet want to have a face lift, thread lift can be an alternative.
However, to achieve more permanent and dramatic results, with a real upward traction of sagging tissues, thread lift is no substitute for a proper face lift.
