Threadlifts (often referred to as brand names such as Silouette Soft or Happy Lift) are gaining in popularity for contouring or lifting sagging tissues of the face.
Threadlifts requires no general anesthesia, hospitalisation or long recovery, and gives immediate results that continue to improve after the procedure. They can be performed in various areas of the face and body, to target specific problem areas.
Suitable areas that can be treated with threadlift augmentation include:
3. Nasolabial Lines
4. Jowl Lines
5. Neck Lines
The effect of the threadlifts can last from 18 months to 5 years, depending on the product and technique used.
Threadlifts generally involve placing threads under the skin to achieve a lifting effect. The method of placement depends on the training of the practitioner, the product used and the patient's specific requests.
Prior to the insertion of the threads, local anaesthesia will be administered to reduce any discomfort. Your doctor may proceed with the marking of entry and exit points of the threads on the face. The lifting threads will now be placed under the skin.
