Thread Treatment Procedures
Threads can be used in 2 ways
A ) to lift the tissue
B ) to act as a fine filler thread in delicate tissues not suitable for filler or other treatments
Silhouette Soft & PDO threadlifts are used in suitable clients to give a lift to sagging tissue.
What areas can be treated?
Most common areas to be treated are the jowl and mid face area.
Other areas suitable are : brow , chin , neck
The threads provide a biomechanical lift , with the threads pulling up tissue and then causing collagen stimulation of that tissue to maintain the effect.
The threads dissolve over a 3-6 month period , with the ongoing look sustained by collagen development.
How long will it last?
There have been reports of the effect lasting for up to 2 years. However given the individual effect will depend on your age , skin condition and continued rate of ageing.
Clients with significant sagging and over 50 are likely to need a top up treatment every 6-12 months.
What does the procedure involve?
All clients will need an initial assessment and counselling prior to any treatment .
The procedure involves placing threads in the tissue planes to correct the sag. This is done using a local anaesthetic and a small needle incision. There is virtually no identifiable scar from the incision site.
About 5-7 threads will be put in each side of the face or neck area.
Thread Treatment Aftercare
You will feel a little tight and may well have some facial bruising.
You must avoid impact exercise for 2 weeks and will be advised your tissue will feel tight for up to 4 weeks.
You are otherwise able to continue with your normal activities , thought some clients prefer to take a few days off work after treatment.
What is the advantage over fillers ?
Most ageing affects are due to upper & mid facial collapse of tissue.
In order to correct this , fillers are used to give lift by deep injection over the skull.
However it is not possible to inject suitable filler to give a lift for many areas of the face . Threads are a treatment that can provide this lift .
The threads also provide a great deal of collagen stimulation and most clients report a general rejuvenation effect in their facial tissues .
What is the advantage over a full surgical face-lift
Formal face lift surgery exposes the client to additional risks.
There are permanent scars visible on the face and head .
There is considerable down time.
There are risks of nerve damage and possible over tightening of the tissue.
The threadlift procedure involves a greater reduction in surgical risk , scar risk and is temporary in effect.
Are dissolvable threads that stimulate collagen and aim to provide volumisation.
Last about 3-6 months and are easily inserted into delicate tissues not ideally suitable for filler therapy.
Common areas treated include: Under eye tissues, Tear trough, Upper lip area
