Thread lift SkinQure 12th July 2016 News Thread Lift The new facelift from £1500 Thread lifts are becoming increasing popular for clients who suffer with lax skin and who do want the risks and scarring associated with tradtional face lifts. SILHOUETTE SOFT® comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. It is made in the United States and its development is based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. Combatting the effects of ageing above all means restoring smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face. To meet this dual requirement, SILHOUETTE SOFT® combines two effects: lifting and regenerating. The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue by adjusting the suture. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother. The regenerative effect is gradual and natural : polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA). It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed. Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body so that it produces its own collagen. This action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally. Silhouette soft thread lift has been chosen by celebritites such as Gillian Taylforth, Sherrie Hewson and Meg Matthews.
