If you were to ask women over 50, who were considering having cosmetic surgery, what they’d most like to improve about their faces, we’re fairly sure the most common answer would be the jawline. Gravity moves our skin south, and on our faces, the jawline is the last stop before the neck. This is where skin that has begun to lose its elasticity gathers. It sags more than it stretches, and it contributes to us looking old, given that we associate a firm jawline with both being youthful, and being slender.
Surgical facelifts have corrected this for many years but the downside is the downtime. You can expect to build a lengthy recovery period into your treatment time. In addition to that, there will be the stitches which will inevitably leave a scar. What if there were a non-invasive procedure that performed the same function, but with very minimal downtime and no stitches. There is! It’s the Silhouette Soft threadlift! Forget bandages. Forget excess pain. Forget heavy bruising for weeks on end. This procedure is fast, safe and effective. Plus the results are the same, albeit, more temporary.
Are the threads safe?
During a Silhouette Soft threadlift, a thread is inserted into the jawline by a highly experienced practitioner. This thread is then pulled tight to elevate the skin that was formally sagging, allowing you to see results straight away. Cones on the thread bond to the inside surface of the skin to hold the thread in place and maintain your new lifted look.
As the thread is made of the same material sutures are made from, it is designed for use in the skin and very safe to use. In addition to pulling the skin upwards from within, another thing the whole process does is stimulate new collagen production. Collagen is key in fresh, skin tissue. It will make your skin in the jaw area firmer and more elastic. You can expect to return to work in just a day or two, with a rejuvenated look and very minimal side effects; which will be mild bruising and swelling if any.
You’ll see the initial results of the treatment immediately afterwards and continuing improvements over the next few weeks as your collagen production increases. You’ll have to take the practitioner’s advice on how long the results will last, but as a guide, 18 months to 2 years is normal. After this time, you’ll be able to book a top up treatment to maintain your new look.
