Thread Face Lift
Introducing The Thread Face Lift – SILHOUETTE SOFT®
SILHOUETTE SOFT® is an innovative non surgical facelift offering men and women a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles. This simple treatment taking less than 60 minutes and the results last up to 18 month. Evolutions is proud to be one of the first clinics in the UK to offer this revolutionary treatment for mild to moderate facial sagging and wrinkles.
The SILHOUETTE SOFT® double action lifts and regenerates at the same time. The lifting effect is immediate and discreet and regeneration occurs gradually and naturally over a period of time after treatment.
Lifting occurs as a result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the thread during the treatment. Once the thread is inserted, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin, making it visibly smoother and this is held in place by the threads.
The main component of SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a polymer : polylactic acid (PLA), which has been used in the medical field for many years. Polylactic acid is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable which has allowed applications such as the thread face lift to be developed. Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body so that it produces its own collagen. This action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face gradually and naturally.
The Thread Lift Procedure
Applying SILHOUETTE SOFT® takes around 60 minutes. You will be given a small local anaesthetic after which the doctor inserts the suture under the skin to a depth of around three to five millimetres. No incisions are required, because Silhouette Soft is inserted using a fine needle. The suture is held in place with absorbable cones oriented in opposite directions (bidirectional) along it’s length.
With the threads in place, the doctor will gently compress the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the threads are cut off. One or more thread may be applied, depending on the patient and treated area. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see a video of the procedure!
