The Silhouette Thread facelift: an FAQ

What is a Silhouette thread facelift?

Simply put, it’s a minimally-invasive procedure. After an application of local anaesthetic to numb the treated area, a special surgical thread is inserted into the skin with a fine needle. This thread is dotted with tiny bi-directional ‘cones’, which your practitioner uses to create a framework. In other words, you get the benefits of facial reshaping without the expense and downtime of invasive surgery.

Silhouette Soft Facelift Before and After

Does it really take 30 minutes?

Yes, more or less.

Is having a surgical thread inserted into my skin dangerous?

Not at all, because the thread and the cones will dissolve over time. Even better, the thread contains an active ingredient which delivers a collagen-stimulating boost which helps reverse the ageing process and restores volume to the skin – giving you two treatments for the price of one.

Which areas of the face are recommended for a Silhouette Thread facelift?

The technique is specifically designed for the brow area, the area around the cheekbones, the jawline and the neck.

Will I need to book time off after a procedure?

No, but there’s a chance of slight bruising afterwards. An antibiotic cream will be prescribed, for application on the entry and exit points.

How long will the effect last for?

The visual effects of a procedure usually last for a period of 12 to 18 months, although the collagen-stimulating benefits continue to work long afterwards. And yes: you can have the treatment re-done, whenever you like.

What makes the perfect candidate for a Silhouette Thread procedure?

We tend to find that people who choose this technique are either starting to think about reaping the benefits of cosmetic surgery but want to try it out at a lower price than a facelift, or people who feel they’re not ready for a larger procedure just yet. Either way, it’s the perfect first step for people looking to indulge in the benefits of aesthetic procedures.
