Silhouette face lift is a type of non-surgical facelift using special Silhouette threads and therefore it also called a “thread lift”. Silhouette threads and the cone placed on them are made from a biodegradable polymer, which is gradually absorbed by the skin. Hence, the final effects of Silhouette facelift are revealed with time. However, the patient’s appearance is rejuvenated immediately after this thread lift. Additionally, Silhouette lift is a facelift without surgery – the whole procedure takes minutes and after that, the patients are free to go. For these reasons, Silhouette lift gains more and more attention from patients and cosmetic surgeons around the world.
Silhouette face lift isn’t the only option, another one is Silhouette neck lift, using the same method and usually performed during the same session.
Silhouette lift procedure usually takes around half an hour. To perform thread lift, the doctor applies local anesthesia. Then, small punctures are made. Through them, Silhouette threads are pulled through. For Silhouette soft treatment to be successfully performed, doctors massage the skin under which the Silhouette threads are placed. In this way, soft tissue under the skin is distributed evenly. The number of punctures and Silhouette threads depends on the scope of the Silhouette face lift and/or Silhouette neck lift. Soon the procedure comes to an end and the patient may go home.
Silhouette thread lift recovery time is estimated to be max. 2 days. After such a short period Silhouette lift patients can resume their normal activities and come back to work. As for aesthetic effects, patient’s skin recovers its natural look within first 10 days after Silhouette soft lift. Finally, Silhouette thread lift recovery time finishes around one month after the procedure, when patients may start to exercise again.
Silhouette soft thread lift is called non-surgical facelift for a reason. After this thread lift, there are no scars involved. Small punctures, through which Silhouette threads are pulled, disappear quickly without leaving a mark. This, apart from spectacular, rejuvenating effects, is one of the reasons behind the success of Silhouette soft treatment.
Silhouette thread lift is a very safe cosmetic procedure. However, there are some Silhouette lift side effects worth taking into consideration. In some patients, thread lift causes bruising and swelling. However, these disappear during first few days after Silhouette soft treatment. Therefore, we shouldn’t worry about them much.
Other side effects of thread lift include infections and nerve damage. However, these are extremely rare and depend on your doctor’s skill – it is better to research before the treatment to find a well-experienced specialist to perform our Silhouette face lift.
