Silhouette Soft Threadlifting
Silhouette Soft threadlift
Only performed by Dr Pradnya Apte, Silhouette Soft thread lifting is an effective treatment for facial sagging. This minimally invasive treatment involves skilfully inserting biodegradable Poly L-Lactic Acid threads under the skin in the fat layer. This material has a long history of use in the medical industry and is entirely re-absorbable. These special threads have cones along their length which act as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft tissues. The cones also breakdown after 6 months or so to stimulate collagen production.
The threads dissolve after 6-8 months. During this time they stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, thickening and strengthening the skin from within and improving elasticity so it retains a lifted appearance for up to 1 year post treatment. Silhouette Soft is the only treatment to combine these dual procedures in an unprecedented two-stage action.
What we love about Silhouette Soft thread lifting is that it can be carried out on a variety of areas including jowls, cheeks and neck. Silhouette threads can also be used on the brows to maintain a natural arch.
Renowned for her natural yet subtle results, Dr Pradnya will work with you to develop a bespoke treatment plan which will boost both your natural beauty and your confidence.
As this is a minimally invasive treatment only performed by a skilled practitioner, Silhouette Soft threadlifting at our Clinic a very comfortable treatment. In addition, topical local anaesthetic will be applied to the area in advance to make the treatment as comfortable as is possible.
What Causes Facial Sagging?
Volume loss: As we get older muscles and fat diminish which can to facial sagging.
Loss of Elasticity: As we age, collagen and elastin production slows and skin loses elasticity which can contribute to sagging. In addition, UV damage can also speed up the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
Posture: Looking down frequently at mobiles, tablets and laptops shortens the neck muscles accelerating the formation of jowls.

How does it work:
Silhouette Soft threadlift
Unlike PDO threads, a Silhouette Soft jowl lift uses special threads made from polylactic acid. These threads feature cones which attach themselves to the surrounding tissues when inserted into the skin. Like PDO threads, this allows for an instant jowl lift with no surgery.
Due to their bidirectional cones, Silhouette Soft threads also have a biostimulation effect as they encourage collagen to build up around the thread. As the threads dissolve over the next 6 to 8 months, the area will become naturally lifted by the collagen your body has produced. This results in a natural, lifted look with long lasting results.
Does it hurt?
Anaesthetic is injected to the area before treatment to ensure that the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
What will my skin look like afterwards?
You may experience some mild bruising and tenderness at the injection sites. However, this will subside.
What happens after treatment?
We suggest you avoid strenuous exercise or any activity that may increase the blood pressure for at least 48 hours.
How long before I see results?
Results are usually visible immediately and may last up to 18 months depending on the individual.
