SILHOUETTE SOFT® THREAD LIFT Reviews

Here’s what our clients have to say…
Dr Leah is the thread lift queen and it is a title I can say she absolutely deserves. I did a lot of research on the best thread face lift before seeing Dr Leah and she was recommended by a beauty journalist who described Dr Leah as the Thread lift queen and I am delighted to say - she was right! My experience with Dr Leah was entirely different to my previous botched thread lift with another doctor, she was professional, and her confidence in the treatment put me at ease. The procedure was so smooth, it took her hardly any time at all and I did not feel a thing after my anaesthetic injection. I had a few days of swelling and some small dips on my cheek but within a few days I could actually see my face had lifted and my jaw was more defined – it is an excellent jowls treatment! The result is better than I even hoped for. I am glad I can write that I had a positive experience, I can say that a thread lift is a good treatment but only if done by the right doctor.

Jen, 53
Highly recommend the silhouette thread lift for men by Dr Leah. Very happy with natural looking results.

Simon, 51
I highly recommend this clinic. Dr Leah was amazing - really down to earth and normal! She talked me through everything and didn’t make me feel pressured into having any treatment. She carried out a Silhouette Soft Lift and talked me through the process, answering any questions that I had. The procedure was fairly painless, and the results look amazing - it has taken years off me! The staff in the clinic were lovely too- really welcoming and made me feel at ease. Thank you

Steph, 42
Ok so I am 54 and have never had anything done to my face. I have wanted to but have never wanted to look "done"! However, after meeting the lovely Dr Leah, for my consultation I changed my mind. Why you might ask? Because I trusted her implicitly. She is very professional and wants you to look "naturally" good. I had silhouette soft (facial threading). Dr Leah totally puts you at ease, explaining everything in detail. I am over the moon with the results. I have my jaw line back! Everything about the clinic is professional. All the staff are very friendly, and no treatments are pushed on you at all. I totally and highly recommend!

SILHOUETTE SOFT® FAQS

What areas can be treated using thread lift?

A thread face lift with Silhouette Soft be used in the following areas: • Eyebrow thread lift/Thread brow lift • Lift cheeks and reduce sagging • Lift middle and lower face to reduce folds / pouches of sagging tissue beside mouth • An excellent jowls treatment – improving jawline definition acting as a lower non-surgical facelift • An effective neck lift/ Neck thread lift to improve a saggy neck area under chin and jaw Dr Leah Clinics do not use Silhouette Soft Thread Lifts to lift the eyes Ultherapy and anti-wrinkle injections is recommended for brow lifts.

What age should I have a thread lift?

Patients are typically aged between 45 to 65 years. The average age of a thread lift client at Dr Leah Clinic in our most recent audit was 51.

Does a thread face lift hurt?

No – before the thread lift procedure begins, your Dr Leah clinician will inject a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area and prevent pain.

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?

At your consultation with Dr Leah Clinic your doctor will discuss in depth the aftercare which you will have to follow after your procedure. Any movement in the treated areas will decrease the overall results of the thread lifting and so it is important to avoid exercise for 7-14 days aside from gentle walks. You will also need to sleep on your back for 5 nights. You are likely to have obvious marks on the face for around 5 days after the treatment so we advise you may want to avoid social activities during this period.

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.

Which Dr Leah Clinics provide the treatment?

Thread lift treatments are performed at either our Baker Street clinic or our Loughton clinic.

HOW DOES A  SILHOUETTE SOFT THREAD LIFT WORK?



The Silhouette Soft® thread facelift (also known as a one stitch facelift) uses bi-directional absorbable threads.
Threads are dissolvable stitches that promote collagen and elastin production. A thread has etched or coned structures that enable it to hook into and lift the tissue beneath the skin. The material from which the thread is made then stimulates collagen production in the skin.

A Thread Lift operates in two ways:
Firstly, it mechanically lifts the skin, instantly providing a lifted appearance to the face, acting as a non-surgical facelift.
Secondly, over the following months, the threads stimulate the body's collagen production, resulting in a smooth, naturally lifted appearance.

A thread face lift with Silhouette Soft be used in the following areas:
Eyebrow thread lift/Thread brow lift
Lift cheeks and reduce sagging
Lift middle and lower face to reduce folds / pouches of sagging tissue beside mouth
Jowls treatment – improving jawline definition acting as a lower non-surgical facelift
Neck lift/Neck thread Lift to improve a saggy neck area under chin and jaw

At Dr Leah Clinics, you’re in safe hands
