PDO Threads &
Silhouette Soft® ThreadLift
A new take on an old concept, Threads and ThreadLifting can provide a non-invasive alternative to surgeries such as facelift and browlift procedures, as well as provide additional structure or contouring in areas where volume and definition may have faded with age.
Threads are made of the same material as absorbable suture, and when placed properly will provide instant structure and lift to the skin. As they dissolve, threads will stimulate your body’s natural healing response – triggering new collagen production in the treated areas.
Threads can be used to treat small areas that need just a little lift or emphasis, or can be used over larger areas like the lower face and jawline to smooth loose skin and contour.
Areas that can be treated include:
- Marionette Lines
- Brow Lift
- Lip line/contour
- Neck Lift
Threads should be used as part of a treatment plan including fillers, Botox/Dysport and skin care to achieve a natural, refreshed look. This type of procedure works best with those only needing mild to moderate correction, and does not replicate results that can be achieved with a full facelift or other surgical procedures.
