How it Works

What Does a Thread Lift Procedure Look Like?

The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to complete and the patient can quickly go back to their normal activities. During your private consultation, we will identify the areas of your body that have skin laxity or creasing and areas that would benefit from a lifting procedure. You will be able to share your concerns and aesthetic goals, we will then map out your face with a special technique to determine where the thread lift should occur and what the thread lift will cost.

Silhouette Soft threads use 2 separate needles on a single thread.
The thread is lined with PLLA cones. On half the thread, they are facing in one direction and on the other half they are facing the opposite direction. An introducing hole is made in the skin with an 18 gauge needle. One of the needles is inserted into the hole to a depth of 5 mm, the needle is pivoted by 90 degrees to make it parallel to the skin and half of the thread is placed in the subcutaneous layer along the vector line. The needle is made to exit 1 cm past the targeted area of laxity, the skin is patted down along the thread to allow attachment, then the thread is cut from the first needle.

The second needle is then inserted into the original introducing hole, and the other half of the thread is placed in an upward direction, usually just past the hair line where the needle exits and it is positioned to give traction (pulling) in the direction required to provide the desired lift. When the thread is cut from the second needle, the lifting thread is in place. This procedure is repeated for all of the threads that are to be inserted. The number of threads used will vary depending on the number of areas being lifted and the amount of thread lift

SURGICAL VS. NON-SURGICAL

SURGICAL FACE LIFT VS. THREAD LIFT - WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

SURGICAL FACE LIFT VS. THREAD LIFT - WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

If you have been considering a facelift and think it might be time, press pause. A traditional surgical facelift is no longer your only option for consideration.

While a traditional surgical facelift creates amazing results - when done correctly - it also carries with it a number of risks. Non surgical options, like a Thread Lift can give beautiful results without the same risks but the procedure needs to be repeated. Although lets get real - surgical facelifts need to be repeated after a few years also. No procedure can stop aging.

The retinoid acid, tretinoin has been linked to birth defects.It is also important to check the labels of any anti-aging, anti-acne, and anti-pigment products, as these may have retinol as an active ingredient.

How do these Procedures

How Do These Procedures Actually Work?

Actually Work?

SURGICAL FACELIFT

SURGICAL FACELIFT

A surgical facelift is done under general anaesthetic and works by surgically lifting the facial tissues. This fat can be strategically repositioned and excess skin is surgically removed to give a taunt, youthful appearance. A face lift does not typically include a brow or eye lift.

THREAD LIFT

THREAD LIFT

The Thread lift requires only a local anaesthetic and can therefore be done in a medical spa location. The Threads effectively pull the fat pads of the face upward and are anchored in place under the skin. The suture material that the Threads are made from are safe and degrade over time. The Threads create a collagen and elastin response in the body that creates a long term regenerative effect.

Which areas of the body can be treated?

A surgical facelift treats part or all of the face. A non surgical Thread Lift can be used on part or all of the face but can also be used to treat and lift other parts of the body.

What results can you expect and for how long?

Surgical facelifts are amazing for creating dramatic, noticeable results. Because the surgeon is actually able to remove and tighten skin - the results are more pronounced than from a thread lift. A facelift is usually repeated after 5 years.

If you are looking for a subtle, natural and beautiful improvement that is not dramatic then a thread lift is a fantastic option. A thread lift is usually repeated after 2 years. It is non invasive and a lot more affordable. This is why many Hollywood celebrities have started going this route over the last year.

How much downtime is involved with these procedures?

After a surgical facelift you can expect to be heavily bandaged for approximately one week. The bruising and swelling can last another 2 - 3 weeks. Without complications you can probably return to regularly activity after 6 weeks.

A Thread Lift is not unlike getting dermal fillers. You may experience some bruising and tightness and this will resolve within 2 days.

WHAT ARE SILHOUETTE SOFT SUTURES?

The Facial Threads or Silhouette Soft sutures are made of a Poly L-lactic (PLLA)

The Facial Threads or Silhouette Soft sutures are made of a Poly L-lactic (PLLA), a well known polymer that has been used on the decades for many biomedical and pharmaceutical applications including suture threads (the material that stitches are made from), pins used in orthopaedics, and rods, screws and nails that are used to treat bone fractures. This particular PLLA is very biocompatible with human beings and is also biodegradable over time in the body. PLLA also stimulates your body to make new collagen and this is a huge natural benefit that create your face looking fresh and rejuvenated over many years.

There is no special preparation required before the Silhouette Soft treatment or Thread Lift treatments are performed. It is essential that during our consultation, you let me know of any other treatments you have already undergone for your face and also let me know of any medications that you are on.

How do Silhouette Soft or Facial Threads Create a Lift?

Sutures that are implanted under the facial skin will gradually lift the fallen tissue, that has descended due to both aging and gravity.

The result is a youthful look that rounds and rejuvenates hollow cheeks, and creates a well-defined jawline. The lifting effect is seen immediately, and is causing by the evolving process that takes place around the various threads. The Poly L-lactic (PLLA) impacts the deeper layers of skin around it and creates an increase in volume by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production.

Post Treatment Care: After a Thread Lift Procedure

After a Thread lift procedure, you may experience oedema (water collection in the tissue) or bruising at the entry point of the small needles. The oedema and bruising typically resolve with a few days and should not cause you any alarm. I will prescribe my patients with an antibiotic cream that should be applied morning and evening at the entry and exit points of the suture material and cream application should continue for 5 days.

After the procedure, I recommend that you refrain from the following for a few days to up to approximately one month:

Do not sleep on your face side, try and sleep face up (10 days).

Do not rub your face vigorously and when washing be sure to pat-dry gently (10 days)

Do not allow direct sunlight and altogether avoid tanning beds (2 weeks)

Avoid all impact sports and exercise moderately only for about 2 weeks

Do not use the stream room or saunas (2 weeks)

Avoid dental surgery for at least a 3-week period

Avoid facial massages and all other aesthetic treatments for 1 month
