What is Thread Lift treatment?
Thread Lifting is the latest technology (using Silhouette Soft®) to help with facial retightening and collagen regeneration. This treatment helps to create desired facial contour and lift through the action of resorbable sutures (resorbable sutures are safe medical threads commonly used to hold, mould and seal epidermis/dermis skin tissue).
How does Thread Lift Work?
The thread lift used in this procedure are made of a polylactic acid resorbable suture (thread), and moulded cones made of lactide/ glycolide.
The suture (thread) acts as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft skin tissue. The cones hold the suture (thread) in place. The components of the suture (thread) and cones are totally reabsorbed by the body and in time stimulate the body’s production of collagen to replace depleted facial volume, which diminishes with age.
What is the process?
The doctor specialised in performing Thread Lifting applies a local anaesthetic to the face, once the area is sedated the doctor injects the Thread Lift suture (thread) under the skin using a fine needle.
After inserting the suture (thread), the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area to reshape the surface of the skin and achieve the immediate lift.
Thread Lifting can be carried out on a variety of areas of the face with long lasting results.
Which area can be treated?
Thread Lifting is a unique solution with long-lasting results that can be carried out on different areas:
• Malar area
