A new revolutionary procedure in non-surgical lifting – Silhouette Soft

The aging process involves various dimensions. Each one needs a specific anti-aging treatment. Expression wrinkles are treatable with Botox. Fat resorption/ volume loss are treatable with HA fillers. Sagging tissues used to be only treatable surgically. Resorbable threads made a revolution in non-surgical aesthetics & offer nowadays a new alternative to treat saggy areas in the face and body without undergoing the hassle of a surgery, with minimal downtime and almost zero pain.

How does it work?

ThreadLifting is a medical aesthetic technique that produces visible lifting effects.

  • Threads work on sagging tissues of the face & body.
  • The technique is atraumatic and consists of inserting needles of different length and size that release a resorbable thread inside the skin.
  • Sutures are carried out either with a polymer of caprolacton – PDO or with Poly-L-Lactic acid, both extremely safe & made to last for about 15/24 months.
  • It is possible to see some immediate results right after insertion. However, the revitalising/lifting effect begins 45/60 days following the procedure.
  • After thread resorption, the lifting effect does not disappear thanks to the fibrous reaction and collagen begins production induced by the barbed thread.

What makes threads extremely efficient & safe in tissue lifting?

  • The resorption of the thread is an Hydrolitic Enzymatical Process;
  • Absolutely not allergenic;
  • Threads are mainly done with PDO or Poly-L-Lactic acid, both safe and similar to material used in sutures, widely used in surgery.
  • Effectiveness of result lasts for around two years and technique is perfectly renewable.

Threads have best lifting action induced by a double mechanism
