At Revivify London we use various threads to lift and rejuvenate the face.
The thread lift is a non-surgical facelift that combats signs of ageing such as sagging skin and loss of facial volume.
Silhouette Soft® threads are reabsorbable, bidirectional sutures that have lifting and regenerating effect. Polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of Silhouette Soft® is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA). It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed.
A subtle lift can be seen immediately after the treatment as soon as the treatment is carried out. The regenerative effect is gradual and natural, over time, polylactic acid component of the threads boosts collagen production, resulting in a progressive volumisation.
The sutures are inserted under a local anaesthetic using a fine needle. They are resorbable and will naturally dissolve over time and do not need to be removed. The effects of stimulated collagen production will continue even after the resorption of the sutures and you will see the gradual rejuvenation and the results last up to 18 months.
Who is it good for?
Silhouette Soft® is recommended for men and women of 30 and over who are trying to effectively the signs of ageing, who do not want any heavy and invasive treatment, but are looking for real and natural results. This treatment is suitable for all skin types – testing for allergic reactions proved negative in clinical studies. Nevertheless, the use of Silhouette Soft® is not recommended if you are allergic or sensitive to biomaterials.
If you have severe ptosis (sagging) or a great deal of excess skin, surgery may be indicated and our consultants will discuss this with you during your consultation session.
