Thread Lifts – Silhouette Soft and Elionce

The science bit

What Is A Thread Lift? The Science Bit

A Thread Lift is a unique treatment which tackles the first signs of ageing. It is predominantly used to treat the jowl area but can also treat other areas on the face. This is a truly revolutionary treatment that offers patients with a redefined face and a firmer jawline area.

The threads themselves are made from the same material used for dissolvable stitches for  wounds or injuries. They completely dissolve after 12 weeks, all on their own.


Who Is a Thread Lift Suitable For?

Thread lifts are ideal for people aged between 30 and 60 years old, who are looking for a non-invasive alternative to the traditional face lift.

Who Is It Not Suitable For?

Both men and women who have excessive amounts of loose skin, who are very thin, or who have a lot of heavy fat around the face should not have thread lift treatment.

What Does Thread Lift Treatment Involve?

We use the thread technique to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue, inducing collagen production into the problem area. The treatment involves implanting fine, absorbable threads into the skin. These threads remain implanted in the skin, causing micro-injuries that stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue contraction.

The end result is a more shapely and youthful-looking appearance. The threads compliment the lift by boosting the skin’s natural collagen, and the treatment impressively lasts, on average, as long as 18 months.

What Can I Expect From a Thread Lift?

We administer a local anaesthetic to the area where the thread is being introduced. Your practitioner will insert the thread under your skin without making a cut, the needle is so very fine. We hold the thread in place with absorbable cones, and the practitioner shapes  the skin to achieve the desired lift. Four to six threads are usually perfect, depending on the area being treated.

What Is the Recovery Time From a Thread Lift?

Downtime is considered minimal. You should not arrange to go anywhere special for the first 2-3 days after the procedure, and you will be given the appropriate aftercare instructions by your practitioner.
