The Silhouette Thread facelift: fast, economical, effective

Silhouette faceliftA Silhouette thread facelift is a minimally-invasive procedure that does two jobs in one: after an application of local anaesthetic to the treated area, a surgical thread is inserted into the skin with a fine needle. The thread – made from a polymer called Polylactic acid – has been used by surgeons for decades for a wide range of procedures, and is 100% safe.

What makes this thread perfect for the procedure is that it’s pitted with tiny bi-directional ‘cones’, which your practitioner uses to create a framework. This means that your targeted area can be reshaped and set into place without the expense and downtime of invasive surgery. The actual procedure takes a mere 30 minutes – which is why it’s known in the media as the ‘lunch-hour facelift’.

It’s a collagen boost, too

Even better, the thread actually 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.

The Silhouette Thread technique is specifically designed for the brow area, the area around the cheekbones, the jawline and the neck. Although you won’t have to undergo a recovery period after a Silhouette Thread treatment, there is a chance of slight bruising afterwards. An antibiotic cream will be prescribed, for application on the entry and exit points.

New shape, lower price

The visual effects of a procedure 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.

So, if you’re interested in the benefits of facial cosmetic surgery, but not yet mentally prepared for a standard facelift, we find that the Silhouette Thread facelift is the perfect entry-level procedure for people wanting instant results with minimal downtime.
