The Silhouette Soft tightens sagging skin whilst simultaneously increasing the production of collagen. The appropriately trained practitioner lifts lax skin in the desired facial regions using sutures containing poly l lactic acid, a fully absorbable ingredient that has been used in medical procedures for years.
What’s more, unlike previous thread lifts, there are no incisions and the sutures are dissolving. Instead, a fine needle is inserted about 3-5mm under the skin and progressed along the direction of lift that is desired. Usually two threads are placed on each side to achieve the desired lift in any given region.
This will depend on the extent of the lift desired. These Silhouette Soft threads are then held in place by virtue of multiple absorbable cones positioned in opposing directions within the thread thereby ‘snagging’ itself and holding the surrounding tissues. The doctor then compresses the tissue by pulling up on the sutures to create the desired lifting effect. Whilst this is the primary mechanism in which the Silhouette Soft thread lift works, there is also a bio-stimulation effect from the polylactic acid material of the threads, causing the body’s own collagen to build up gradually around the thread itself.
A procedure takes from around 1hr to 1hr 30 minute and the lift results are immediate.
This of course will vary with individuals; however in general it may last 12-18 months although there will be patients who will fall outside of these time frames, on both sides, depending on the quality and elasticity of their tissues.
Pricing depends on amount of threads used and starts at €1200
