How does Silhouette Soft ThreadLift work?
Our doctors use Silhouette soft threads that are approved by the US FDA and the European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal products. The ThreadLift involves the insertion of threads in deep tissue using small resorbable cones and knots that anchor themselves in deep tissue. This lifts the skin and forms new collagen around the threads with time, rejuvenating the skin from inside out. Over time tissue forms around the cones, the latter then dissolves leaving the skin and new tissue anchored in place. Collagen and elastin skin proteins start to form and the skin is lifted and becomes tighter and more youthful, resembling a more streamlined "V" shape.
Suitable Patients: It is suitable for those who have mild to moderate sagging of the skin, and wish to restore the youthfulness back to their skin with minimal downtime (Results vary based on the individual).
