What results can I expect from a Silhouette Soft Lift – thread face lift?
The lifting effect from the thread lift will be visible immediately. Additionally, the rejuvenating effect of your thread lift will gradually become visible over 3 months.
What is the difference between PDO and Silhouette Soft thread lift?
They are different treatments and they produce different results.
PDO threads tend to be easier to insert, cheaper in price and produce a different type of collagen to Silhouette Soft. They tend to give more plumping / rejuvenation than lift. Silhouette Soft threads produce less plumping than PDO threads but give a better lift.
Should I have PDO threads or Silhouette Soft thread lift?
If you require plumping / volumisation as well as a subtle lift, then PDO are the best option. If you do not require additional volume but require a reasonable lift, then Silhouette Soft is the best option. If you are unsure which type of thread lift is best, then your Dr Leah Clinics doctor will be able to advise which is best for you at your consultation.
What are the side effects of a thread lift?
Some patients notice some bruising and swelling immediately after their Silhouette Soft® procedure. Other common side effects visible for the first 5 days are puckering of the skin and dimples. We generally advise 5 days of work following a threadlift procedure.
What should I do after my thread lift treatment?
There are an extensive aftercare list which you will have to follow after your procedure, which includes avoiding exercise for 7-14 days and sleeping on your back for 5 nights. You are likely to have obvious marks on the face for 5 days after the treatment so we advise taking 5 days off work/ avoid social activities following this treatment.
How long will my thread lift results last?
Up to 18 months, at which point the treatment can be repeated.
Can I repeat my thread lift treatment?
Yes, there is no limit to how many times your face thread lift treatment can be repeated.
Can I combine thread lift with other treatments?
Yes, the majority of thread lift patients combine the treatment with other treatments such as Ultherapy to tighten the skin prior to lifting, or small amounts of dermal filler after thread lift to enhance the result. These treatments are offered at a discounted rate at your follow up appointment after thread lift treatment.
