Is Silhouette Soft Threads Safe?
The Silhouette Soft Threads are safe as long as the doctor is certified and has long experience in facial thread lift. Beware of cheaper options and inexperienced doctors as then it comes with complications. The threads are 100% fully absorbable. The threads are made of PLA or Polylactic Acid which has been used for many years in suture threads. The Silhouette Soft threads are made in Michigan in the USA and have CE approval in accordance with European Directive.
Do Silhouette Soft Thread Stay Permanently In The Face?
The threads degrade completely after 6 to 9 months. However, during the 6-9 months, the body forms its own collagen that maintains the lift when the threads degrade.
How Long Does The Lifting Effect Last?
The lifting effect is immediately seen after the procedure. The effect last for another 18 months or more depending on the lifestyle and ageing process. The procedure should be repeated as soon as the effect is seen to be wearing off so that the lifting effect lasts even longer. The lifting effect can be further increased by placing more threads after 6 months. The best treatment for saggy skin is to initially do facial skin tightening treatment such as Thermage or Duplo before Silhouette Instalift. This will enhance the tightening and lifting effect both in the result as well as the lasting period.
How Does Silhouette Instalift Work?
There is no incision made on the skin as the Silhouette Soft threads are inserted using a fine needle. A local anaesthetic is injected at points of entry and exit of needle. The thread after insertion under the skin is held in place by innovative absorbable cones that suspend and lift saggy skin to achieve a defined jawline and firmer skin. Over time it stimulates the skin’s own collagen production resulting in maintaining the lift and firmness.
The number of threads inserted is determined by the amount of facial lift required
