The latest technique in facial rejuvenation
Silhouette Soft thread lift is the happy medium between non-surgical and surgical facial rejuvenation. Thread lifts have been around for many years, but new developments in technology with dissolving, absorbable threads now offers a great alternative for patients who are not quite ready for a surgical face lift.
Thread Lift - The Next Step in Facial Rejuvenation
Classically, a thread lift patient would be in their 30s to 40s and the results will last a number of years. The procedure is ideal for patients who are no longer seeing facial rejuvenation results from injectable fillers, but are not quite ready for a surgical face lift.
The threads used in the thread lift are made from a dissolving suture material which dissolves over 18 months giving elevation and suspension to the tissue and, as they dissolve, generating new collagen to increase tissue volume.
The procedure is relatively simple and convenient, being performed in Dr Hunt’s practice under local anaesthetic. It takes approximately 1 hour and patients can return to work and normal activities within 48 hours.
The results are immediately apparent and can last a number of years while the threads dissolve over about 18 months. The procedure can be repeated if patients are still not ready for a surgical face-lift. It is important to remember that the results are not as powerful as a face lift, but a thread lift does provide that vital link between non-surgical and surgical facial rejuvenation.
