Silhouette Soft Thread Lifts
The innovative Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is the latest in non-surgical rejuvenation. A 60 minute procedure that can lift and reposition the skin and restore the natural youthful contours of the face. The technique has two actions, an immediate elevation of the skin and a longer term increase in collagen production under the skin. Studies have shown results lasting up to 18 months from a single treatment.
Silhouette Soft Thread Lifts are performed in Glasgow and Bothwell by our Medical Team led by Dr’s Simon and Emma Ravichandran. Our team will assess you for your own individual Silhouette Soft Thread Lift Treatment to ensure you get the best possible result.
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is a non-invasive thread lifting treatment that has the double action of lifting the soft tissues of the face and stimulating collagen synthesis for a regenerating effect. The threads are made from a poly-l-lactic acid, an entirely re-absorbable material that has been used in surgery for many years.
Silhouette Soft threads are used for correcting the signs of ageing that occur due to loose sagging skin, such as early jowls, loose neck skin and blunting of the jaw line. They can also be used to lift eyebrows, and elsewhere in the body to lift breasts and buttocks.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I suitable for Silhouette Soft treatment?
Ideal Silhouette Soft candidates would have early or moderate signs of skin laxity, with early jowling and sagging of skin.
How is the treatment performed?
The treatment is performed in a clinic under with local anaesthetic. A small puncture is made in the skin and the thread is introduced through this and passed under the skin to it’s desired location. After the correct number of threads have been placed the skin is withdrawn back over the threads and is held in place.
Is the treatment painful?
No, the treatment is performed under a local anaesthetic. You will feel some tugging of the skin as the threads are inserted but it is typically painless.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment you may have some bruising in the areas where the threads have been placed. If bruising does occur it typically is small and easily covered by makeup if required. There is often some “puckering” of the skin in the areas that have been treated. This is more likely with treatments for severe skin laxity. The puckering appearance usually subsides within a day or so. Some people take a couple of days off work, or have the treatment over a weekend however some people are also happy to resume normal activities immediately after the treatment. The result of the treatment is immediate and you will see a subtle face lifting effect that can last as long as two years.
How much does it cost?
Silhouette soft thread lift treatments start from £1800. The cost will depend on the number and type of threads used and this will be discussed at your consultation.
