The ‘Silhouette soft’ or 30-minute facelift is a revolutionary new alternative to the traditional surgical facelift which is performed under local anaesthesia without the need for a scalpel or general anaesthetic. Using dissolving sutures placed under the skin with bidirectional cones for support, it is possible to lift sagging skin in the mid- to lower-face and stimulate regeneration of the collagen that is lost when the face ages. The effects of this procedure are immediate, with gradual regeneration of collagen over the following months. The effect lasts for approximately 18 months, at which stage it is possible to repeat the procedure. It is possible to combine this procedure with other complimentary cosmetic procedures for maximal effect.
What the procedure involves:
The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic without the use of a scalpel. At sites where the needle is inserted under the skin, local anaesthetic will be used to numb the area. Usually there are around 6 areas on each side of the face that require local anaesthetic injection. Once the areas are numb and the skin is cleaned with antiseptic, the lifting threads are inserted along the desired direction of lifting and the skin is manipulated to provide the desired effect. The procedure leaves only minimal needle puncture marks where the needles are inserted which should heal completely without scarring. It is possible to feel the bidirectional cones afterwards under the skin but they should not be visible. The entire procedure takes around 30 minutes with minimal downtime afterwards. A course of oral antibiotics will be given for 5 days following the procedure to minimise the risk of infection.
There should be minimal pain associated with this procedure but if required a simple analgesic such as paracetamol may be prescribed.
During the first week following the procedure patients should not undergo any dental or facial aesthetic treatments and should avoid facial massage.
Physical contact sports should be avoided for one week
Patients should sleep upright for the week following the procedure
NB: The starting price includes 1 thread on each side of the face. Additional threads cost from £660 each. The number and situation of the thread will be determined on consultation and an additional charge will be made on the day of the treatment
