A thread lift procedure is a convenient alternative and less invasive method than the traditional facelift surgery. Classically, this is referred to as the 'Lunch-hour Facelift'. The Silhouette face threading is ideally suited for younger and middle aged patients, whose tone has become lax with time or sun damage. It is considered a facelift without surgery.
These are non-surgical procedures whereby barbed and non-absorbable sutures are inserted through small incisions into the face to create a lifting effect or a tightening and firming of the soft facial tissues.
This is useful for those with flabby faces or aging of the mid-face, jowls, brow and neck. Selective regional lifting is possible. Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance. The procedure time is approximately 45 to 60 minutes under local anesthesia.
