Silhouette Soft® Threadlift
Achieve the V-shape face and lifting the saggy face without surgery!
Silhouette Soft® is a procedure to achieve: a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles by means of a 30-minute treatment with results lasting up to 18 months. Silhouette Soft® comes in the form of bi-directional absorbable thread cones. It is made in the United States and is the only absorbable US FDA-approved thread.
What is Thread Lift?
Thread Lift is an innovative and minimally invasive procedure that is popular in Korea, where safe, soluble threads made from surgical suture materials are gently inserted into the targeted areas under the skin. The tiny barbs, cogs or cones on the threads will lift, tighten and restore the saggy skin to its natural position, giving you an elevated natural younger look.
How does Thread Lift work?
Prior to the procedure, topical anesthetic cream is applied to the target area followed by local anaesthetic injection. The threads are gently inserted into the skin and adjusted to the desired position. The Silhouette Soft® treatment is a unique procedure that combines lifting and regenerating effects. These two effects combat the signs of aging by restoring smoother more toned skin and a more defined and shapely face. The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the suture.
The regenerative effect is gradual and natural. Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.
The procedure may take about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the treatment areas.
Is there any downtime?
The treatment is well tolerated with the help of topical anaesthetic cream and local anaesthetic. There is little to no downtime where you are able to return to your normal activities right after the treatment. Occasionally, there may be minor discomfort, swelling and bruising after the treatment, which will resolve within a few days. To minimise the risk of bruising, patients are advised to stop their oral supplements 1 week prior to the procedure.
Areas for treatment
Silhouette Soft® can be used to treat different parts of the face such as:
• Facial Contour
• Lower Jaw
• Cheeks and Cheekbones
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the individual, the results can usually last for 1 to 2 years. Repeated treatments will achieve and yield better results in more severe cases.
