SILHOUETTE SOFT THREADLIFT
The Silhouette Soft Threadlift Procedure involves the precise insertion of bidirectional cone threads into the skin to result in the lifting of saggy regions of the face eg. jowls, cheeks, laugh lines, etc. These threads will spontaneously dissolve over time. The entire procedure is quick and effective and can be completed in as little as 30 minutes.
HOW IS THE PRODEDURE PERFORMED?
Firstly, a detailed consultation will be held with Dr J Ngiam to determine if you are suitable for the Threadlifting Procedure. This treatment may be combined with botulinum toxin and facial fillers to achieve the best possible aesthetic outcome.
No special pre-procedure preparation is needed prior to coming to the clinic. At the clinic, your face will be cleansed and numbing cream may be applied. Subsequently, Dr J Ngiam will proceed to mark out the treatment areas. Local anaesthetic will then be carefully injected to numb the treatment areas. This will then be followed by the careful and precise insertion of Silhouette Soft threads to achieve an immediate lifting effect. After the threads have been placed, Dr Ngiam will gently compress the tissues to produce an immediate lifting effect. Excess thread length will be trimmed off.
HOW DOES IT WORK? - THE SILHOUETTE SOFT DOUBLE ACTION (LIFTING AND REGENERATION)
Firstly the Silhouette Soft Threadlift procedure has an immediate lifting effect after the bidirectional cones are introduced and compression of the tissue is performed, visibly reducing laugh lines, marionette lines, jowls, etc. Subsequently, the regenerating effect gradually takes place as the Poly L-lactic Acid (PLLA) threads resorb over a period of four (4) to six (6) months. This stimulates the tissues to produce new collagen and thus promotes facial volume restoration.
WHICH AREAS OF THE FACE CAN BE TREATED?
Silhouette Soft threadlift procedure can be used to treat different parts of the face as follows,
– cheeks and midface
– droopy eyebrows
– contours of the face
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
You may experience some redness, swelling and bruising after the procedure. The redness and swelling typically resolves over a period of 3 to 5 days. Bruising may take up to 1-2 weeks to resolve.
WHEN CAN I SEE RESULTS?
An immediate lifting effect can often be seen after the procedure. Best results can be appreciated one (1) to two (2) months following the procedure.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
The results last for approximate 1 year.
